  Bleach Infiltration Canceled - Dragon Ball Fusion Arriving Next Week
Score Entertainment announced yesterday that it has canceled the upcoming Bleach Infiltration set it planned to release this month. For those who haven't already heard, Panini purchased Donruss Playoff last month.

Bleach fans looking for previously produced sets can find many of them still available on our web site.
