Vancouver, Canada-based Nerd Corps Entertainment is revving up its Storm Hawks retail presence with several new deals and partnerships.
The series, which has gone to daily strip on Cartoon Network US, will be transformed into a trading card game by Whiz kids. Rolling out in 2009, the new Storm Hawks PocketModel TCG allows kids to collect and construct models of vehicles and characters from the show and integrate them into a trading card battle.
Additionally, Storm Hawks’ North American agent MGM Consumer Products has locked in new deals with C-Life (apparel), Accessory Innovations (backpacks and accessories), WestPoint Home (bedding), Hybrid Promotion (t-shirts), Elegant Headwear (hats and caps), Hobbico Corporation (3-D puzzles) and Weisner Products (footwear).
Additionally, this January and February, Carl’s Jr. and Hardee restaurants across the US will be featuring Storm Hawks toys in more than three million of their Cool Kids Combos.
