Subscription Service Geared Towards the Nerd & Geek Community Teams Up With Celebrities This December
TORONTO, Nov. 19, 2014 /CNW/ - Nerd Block, the monthly subscription service for geeks and nerds, has teamed up with celebrities Warwick Davis (Star Wars, Harry Potter, Willow) and Val Kilmer (Batman, Top Gun, Tombstone) to provide autographs for all of their subscribers in December's Nerd Block.
Since the fall of 2013, Nerd Block has been delighting a rapidly growing base of subscribers with a monthly delivery of quality toys, collectables, and apparel from top tier partners including Funko, Mattel, and Hasbro, all under the "nerd" umbrella to provide subscribers with a monthly box containing products from brands like Star Wars, Nintendo, Doctor Who, and more. Every month, subscribers receive a box containing a custom printed shirt, plus several toys and collectables.
This partnership, with The Signature Shop UK, is the first in a line of celebrity engagements that will continue throughout 2015 and 2016, starting with actors Val Kilmer and Warwick Davis signing autographs that will be included exclusively in every Nerd Block Classic box in December.
Celebrity engagement will not be limited to autographs, which opens up a wonderful opportunity for subscribers to get exclusive celebrity merchandise. "Warwick has been fantastic to work with. Our partnership with The Signature Shop UK is a natural fit and it's directly inline with what our customers are looking for; the ultimate in celebrity collectables. To be able to reunite Warwick and Val on a project that many of us grew up adoring is a really special moment for us and speaks volumes of what's to come with this new partnership. Just wait until you see what's next!" said Russ Montague, founder of Nerd Block.
Nerd Block has spawned a hyper community, with subscribers regularly discussing each month's Block contents and guessing what might be arriving next. In addition to Nerd Block Classic, subscribers may also choose Horror Block, Arcade Block, and Nerd Block Junior for boys or girls.
