Erick Sosa IMPORTANT new in regard to Syco Collectibles

Dear all,
As you well know I have been working with the Moderators from both Clubhouse and Statue forum to resolve some issues pertaining Syco collectibles and Mr. Abdelsattar Bizri AKA The King of Hobbies.
I have been tirelessly working for many days and very long hours for the past 2 weeks or so in trying to get things to work out between the forums and Syco.

Today I have sadly been made aware of some dealings in which Syco may or may not be involved that keep me from officially working with them as an official vendor/art director/consultant.

For the time being, I would like to apologize to anyone affected by any misunderstanding between artists and Syco. I am not pointing any fingers, nor am I making any details known, nor is my purpose to sway anyone to see them in a bad light.
Said approach is not a professional thing to do unless strictly necessary, and for the sake of the truth being known and to protect innocent people.
It is my honest hope it will not come to that.

For the sake of my integrity and for the protection of the community, I am effective immediately not involved in any talks, or communications of any type or serving as liaison between Syco and the forums.
Things are just too confusing, and information coming in is too murky.
If Mr. Jonathan Martin cares to step up and explain what has been going on, I will definitely commend him for it, but I am no longer exposing my name to any negative situations that may arise from these events.

It is my duty to let artists know that you must be aware of any dealing not just with the aforementioned company but with any company.
I wish Syco good luck, and hope they can resolve these issues immediately, and if in reality everything seems to come to a good conclusion I will be glad it reaches a said positive point, and wish them a very bright future.

-Erick Sosa

Glad you got out of that con, Erick. I didn't think a "CEO" could be so incompetent that they let Abdel take over important business decisions without said "CEO" being just as shady.

Well, I just finished catching up with this Shyamalan movie. Much like the majority of his so called "twists".... saw this one coming.

You did the right thing, Erick. You're too much of a class act to let yourself be associated with such shady business practices.

Wow, their response on facebook to this is less than encouraging. The small bit of confidence I had left in them after the apology is now gone, even to go back in the future after said statues were in stock. I'm not a cynical person by nature, but yeah, too many excuses, too many chances, I'm done.

I knew this would happen eventually but didn't think it'd be that quick...

Anyway, good to know you're not working with those guys anymore. They have the shadiest business in the industry right now. They won't be lasting long I reckon
