Z brings Blokhedz retail craze to NZ

New Zealand’s next big retail collectable craze strikes at more than 200 Z service stations today.

Z is bringing the stackable collectables Blokhedz to NZ for the first time, with 16 DC Comics Super Hero and Super-Villain characters to collect, stack, trade and take into battle.

“Blokhedz can be stacked and played with any number of ways. We hope Kiwis will love the challenge of collecting and trading them, stacking them, and taking on family and friends in Super Hero inspired games,” Z General Manager Retail, Mark Forsyth says.

“We reckon they’ll be flying out of Z stations faster than Superman himself.”

“At Z we pride ourselves on being fun-loving, and we think our customers do too – it’s the Kiwi way. We reckon our customers will love the DC Comics Blokhedz range, and will have heaps of fun with them,” Mark says.

“Half of the fun comes from collecting and trading the characters to try and get the full set – and the fastest way to do this is to join forces with family and friends. The other half is taking on family and friends in Blokhedz games and challenges – like building the biggest or craziest stack.

“The Blokhedz DC Comics Super Heroes and Super-Villains will appeal to Kiwis across generations – everyone has their favourite,” Mark says.

Z is giving away Blokhedz with every $40 spent (excluding tobacco products) while stock lasts. Head to z.co.nz/blokhedz to find out more about the Blokhedz characters, games you can play and competitions you can enter.
