We have multiple threads and responses on the board, but no dedicated main thread...so here it is.

DC Universe Club Infinite Earths

In 2012, DC Universe Club Infinite Earths will be the only place to get true collector 6" character figures not available at retail, including Poison Ivy, Atrocitus, The Flash 1 and Starman. You’ll also receive the club-exclusive oversized figure, voted by fans to be Metron with his Mobius Chair!

This club going forward was based on reaching a certain number of subscriptions during the initial offering in July/August. Although our goal wasn't achieved, we want to show our support for fans by moving ahead. In order to make the club work, we crunched the numbers and here's what we came up with: As a benefit to membership, you'll be locked in at the previously advertised subscription rates of $15 for 6" figures and $30 for oversized figures, plus shipping/taxes/fees. Prices for figures sold outside the subscription during our monthly sales at MattyCollector.com will be $18 for 6" figures and $45 for oversized figures. A subscription to DC Universe Club Infinite Earths is the only way to guarantee the lower prices and get fan-favorite Metron, which will not be sold at MattyCollector.com!

DC Universe Club Infinite Earths Overview

* Purchase a membership to DC Universe Club Infinite Earths for $30 and you’re guaranteed to receive all of the official club figures released during the year. Starting in April 2012, there will be 9 monthly 6" figures and 3 "oversized" figures (one shipped approximately each quarter, beginning with the second quarter). You’ll also receive the club-exclusive for 2012, Metron with his Mobius Chair. Characters revealed to date are 6" Poison Ivy, 6" Atrocitus, 6" The Flash 1 and 6" Starman.

* Figures will begin shipping approximately two (2) business days prior to the official on-sale date. Along with guaranteed figures and the club-exclusive, this is one of our members’ favorite benefits because they usually start getting their figures sooner than non-members!

* Exact figures will be announced approximately one to two months before each on-sale date.

* The club-exclusive figure will be shipped sometime around the second quarter of the year. The figure is included in the cost of the membership ($30), however applicable shipping and taxes/fees will be charged at the time of shipment.

* Special convention items, reissues, weapons packs, stands and other accessories are not included. Mattel reserves the right to offer those and any other DC Universe items, and reissue non-subscription items. Subscriptions will not include any additional items beyond those listed here.

* All figures EXCEPT the club-exclusive figure will also be available at MattyCollector.com around the 15th of the on-sale month without the membership. You will have the option to buy additional figures, but availability isn’t guaranteed and the purchase limit is ten (10) per person. Prices for these figures will be $18 for 6" figures and $45 for oversized figures.

* The only way to receive the club-exclusive figure through Mattel will be to buy a membership to DC Universe Club Infinite Earths! This item will not be sold separately on MattyCollector.com.

Dedicated thread? Didn't you see how I derailed that thread about Wave 20 into a Total Justice discussion? :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

heh, yeah, well...we have discussions about the Club in about half a dozen threads, so I wanted to centralize the topic.

The only one that I do not want thus far is Atrocitus, so the club is good for me so far. I hope we get to see Ivy at Toy Fair and maybe another figure too, maybe the deluxe figure?

Everything they've revealed for the sub thus far has been a win for me. I'm sure there'll be a couple stinkers, but I don't think I'll have a problem finding homes for those.

Starman is so-so for me, but I'm feeling better about him since I got the Legion set.

The rest range from good (Metron), to great (Ivy), to about friggin' time (Jay).

My hopes for TF are:

Ivy
2 more regular characters
1 more "Over-sized" figure.

Then SDCC can reveal the rest of the year in order to built up excitement for Year 2 of the sub.

I bought two subs as a show of faith in the line. I'm hoping the Toy Fair reveals support that faith. The characters they've revealed so far are, in my opinion, either good (Atrocitus, Poison Ivy, Starman) or great (Flash, Metron). I'm really hoping we'll see some of the team-completers like Elastigirl and some more Metal Men.

Pretend to place an order for something like figure stands.

When you log in, you can access your account and change any pertinent information like CC, address, etc.

Empty your cart when done (unless you really want to buy the "whatever" you put in there) and you should be all set.

Has anyone dealt with an address change and having a sub? I'm hoping to move this summer and I don't want my DCIE sub to get lost in the shuffle.

My two greatest wishes for the sub are Ralph and Mera.

If those two make the cut this year, they've got me for next year, no questions asked.

Ralph would have to be there but I think Mera has a shot at retail also. What would be nice would be a red lantern Mera at retail and the real one in the sub.

I'd buy both of those Meras. I've never really cared for Elongated Man though.
