Corgi International’s wholly owned UK subsidiaries Popco Entertainment (UK) and Popco Distribution have been placed into administration.

Corgi International, which markets licensed and non-licensed toys, gifts and high-end collectables will continue to sell its products through its operations in Hong Kong and in the US.

It is thought the firm took a huge hit with the delay to the next Harry Potter film which it was a major licensee for which was scheduled for this month, but is now due in the summer 2009.
