VTech, the company that makes the Battlebots toys, is suing some of its customers for allegedly making them more than toys.
The lawsuit, filed Tuesday in New York, accuses some of VTech’s customers of “using counterfeit, misleading, and/or fraudulent products to create false claims of superiority in the BattleBots universe.”
The company is seeking a jury trial in New Jersey.
In the lawsuit, VTech also alleges that its “collective marketing efforts have promoted and promoted the use of BattleBot toys to consumers” and that some of the toys “include false claims about the BattleBot Battletech universe.”
In the complaint, Vtech claims that some customers have “inadvertently” purchased counterfeit products from its online store, claiming that some BattleBotos “are produced to look and feel as if they are made by VTech,” and that others “are fake.”
According to the lawsuit filed Tuesday, V Tech also claims that the company is “in direct breach of [its] agreements with consumers” by “promoting and promoting the use and use of counterfeit and misleading products.”
In a statement, V.
Toys said that the allegations “are false, defamatory, and malicious.”
It also claimed that the suit is “without merit.”
VTech said that it has “full confidence in our product line and is committed to producing the best quality BattleBOT products in a competitive environment.”
We’re still waiting to hear from the company about how the suit will proceed, but we’ll update this story if we hear back.
