HWZ Deal Alert: Fight the force (and get the deals) with Challenger!

By Wong Chung Wee - 14 May 2019

HWZ Deal Alert: 29 April 2019

Got deal, got talk! GDGT! =)

The X-Men may have been ignominiously excluded from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But with Disney’s acquisition of 20th Century Fox in late March this year, there’s a chance popular X-Men characters may be incorporated into the MCU. Till then, we can only contend with X-Men as a separate franchise. Come 5th June this year, the latest movie from the franchise, X-Men: Dark Phoenix will hit our local screens. Are you ready to face the force and embrace it?



Fight the (dark) force with Challenger

With X-Men: Dark Phoenix’s impending release in early June, Challenger will be giving away exclusive limited edition movie premiums that include the following:-

  • X-Men: Dark Phoenix phone grip
  • X-Men: Dark Phoenix tee
  • X-Men: Dark Phoenix X-Suit tee
  • X-Men: Dark Phoenix notebooks
  • X-Men: Dark Phoenix backpacks
  • X-Men: Dark Phoenix Suit jackets and movie tickets

Customers, who shop at Hachi.tech or at Challenger’s retail stores during the movie tie-in campaign periods of 11th to 12th May or 17th to 18th May, will stand a chance to own these movie premiums. Please check out the campaign details on Hachi.tech site.
