"The horror genre is a staple in pop culture, yet it's easily overlooked in favor of action, adventure, and science fiction. We wanted to change that and bring the excitement of horror front and center with a dedicated monthly Block," said Russ Montague, founder of Nerd Block. "For only $19.99 horror fans are treated to a monthly package that includes a shirt and 4-6 other toys and collectables! Initial response has been overwhelming and fans are living up to subscribe. One could even say they're dying to get their hands on it, pun intended."

Following in the footsteps of Nerd Block's innovative service, which aims to have something for everyone in each box and deliver valuable retail items at a discount to subscribers. Nerd Block partners have included: Funko Pop! Star Wars Figures, Ninja Turtles, t-shirts, trading cards, Super Mario toys, plush figures, Iron Man sets, Marvel & DC figures, Adventure Time merchandise, Nintendo items, and more!

The perfect item for the nerd inside all of us, the boxes, which cost just $19.99 per month, have spawned a hyper community of their own, with subscribers regularly discussing the month's arrivals and guessing what might be next.

With a new slate of partners coming and more services to be announced over the next year, Nerd Block looks to continue their early success throughout 2014.
