Nerd Block and ReedPOP are teaming up to deliver limited-edition C2E2 fan boxes featuring toys, collectibles, apparel and autographed memorabilia!
Leading subscription box company Nerd Block, together with ReedPOP, the world’s largest producer of pop culture events, announced the launch of the limited edition Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo (C2E2) box: a special one-time offer packed with toys, collectibles, a celebrity autograph and an exclusive T-shirt. The customized C2E2 box will give Fans, whether attending the Chicago-based convention or not, the chance to get their hands on exclusive merchandise reflective of the ReedPOP event experience. Its debut marks the launch of an extended collaboration that will introduce other limited edition boxes branded after ReedPOP’s popular roster of events.
“ReedPOP and Nerd Block both thrive on bringing exceptional experiences and value to Fans around the world,” says Russ Montague, CEO of Nerd Block. “Since Nerd Block was founded on the idea of bringing the fun of conventions to the doorsteps of Fans, it makes perfect sense to partner with ReedPOP, whose events have been inspirational to all of us here.”
The announcement of this collaboration between ReedPOP and Nerd Block is just one of many expected in the coming months. Besides the subscription box highlighting C2E3, the duo has plans for fan boxes for Emerald City Comicon (ECCC) and New York Comic Con (NYCC). Boxes are set to include eight officially-licensed collectibles including a Funko POP! Vinyl figure of a surprise, buzz-worthy character.
Lance Fensterman, ReedPOP’s Global Senior Vice President, added, “We want to bring the ReedPOP experience to as many Fans as we can. We know that not everyone can make it to our shows and for those who do, they’re looking for that extra something special. These Nerd Block boxes are just that.”
