NEW YORK, July 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Thwipster, the Daily Deal site for your Inner Geek, announced they are now going to be offering an additional product of the day for the geek who loves action figures, statues and other geek related merchandise. From Star Wars to World of Warcraft, Thwipster will be featuring a wide array of collectibles that hail from the various worlds of entertainment. These include, but are not exclusive to, movies, cartoons, comics and video games.
“My 5-year-old son told me he would love me twice as much if we offered more deals on action figures, so it was a complete no-brainer to add in a second deal of the day that just focuses on collectibles,” says Lance Sells, Thwipster’s co-founder and CEO.
Chad Sells, Director of Operations and co-founder adds, “Just like everything else we offer up on the site, we curate and offer only the best products out there. There will be no ‘The Meat’ action figure from the Rocky series offered up. Though we do like meat.”
This week, in addition to the already established daily and weekly graphic novel deals, consumers can shop for collectible action figures and statues from the world of video games, movies and comics. All of Thwipster’s daily deals begin each day (Monday through Friday) at 12am ET and end at 11:59pm ET the same day or while supplies last.
