Ok, so I've read what people are concerned about and what's keeping them from signing up and come up with an idea to help save DCUC this year.

Some have cited not wanting to deal with Digital River, others state they don't want to buy figures they don't want (despite the fact that it's the only way to keep the line alive to get to ones you do want).

I have given this a lot of thought, looked at what I feel I can do and I'm putting this offer out there...I will buy subs for anyone using the following as criteria.

1 - Out of the 12 figures, you must commit to buying at least 6 of them (7 if you want the exclusive). I don't care which ones you want, I will let you cherry pick them. You can buy more (eg. 8, 9 or all 12) but not less than 6 so I'm only stuck with half at worst.

2 - Shipping will be a standard $8 per figure to anywhere in the states. Please keep in mind that I will be shipping this out to you plus there's shipping to where I receive it. For international fans, including Canada I will charge exact shipping and send you a receipt. I live on the border of Massena, NY so I know that it's cheaper to ship from USA to the USA.

3 - Please don't screw me over if you are not going to honor this deal, I realize that I will be putting myself out on a limb and trusting in the goodwill of others as you will feel you are doing with me also. I'm not rich...I just really, really want this line to continue. I am asking that anyone interested pay for an initial figure to show their commitment and you can put it towards any figure in the line even if you don't like one until August of next year. If you want the exclusive, I'm asking for both the cost of that one plus the initial figure up front. The rest of them can be paid the month the figure comes out if you prefer before I ship to you.

I am willing to do up to 50 subs, counting on that hopefully there are enough honest people out there who will not leave me with more than half that kinda of stock and I realize this means I could be stuck with 50 of a given character that no one wants. That's fine, I will give them to kids I know at church or donate them or try to sell some of them to make up costs.

This line has brought us so many great characters I thought we'd never see and my favorite team the Titans still has major gaps & holes, not to mention I would love to see more Legion, Flash Rogues, and pretty much any Females & Villains. I'm willing to take on some risk to do my part and help others also. I will also admit that another reason why is that collecting this line has been one of the few things I still enjoy in life as I am recently divorced due to my ex's adulteries and while I wish I could admit that there's more that makes me feel excited right now...I can't say that's the case at the moment. I will be posting this on the boards I know of including mattycollector.com, thefwoosh and actionfigureinsider - the latter 2, I have been on for 4-5 years and have excellent trading/selling feedback on if you wish to check.

If there are any other questions you have please message me before that August 6th deadline shows up and we'll figure something out. Please help save the DCUC line, we still have way too many characters to make & release!

Jeremy "Boots Bailey" Bojarski

I should also add I bought 2 subs for myself already and when rereading where I wrote about how you could wait till August to buy that as your first figure, that would mean you would then have to commit to the rest of the year to keep with getting at least 6 of them.

Anyone still on the fence needs to decide now.

Someone just asked me about the figures they could select from and since I'd be ordering a sub per person interested, you'd get a shot at any figure they make. I suppose I'm realizing that since some figs won't be selected, those interested can request and if there's left overs of a certain fig and they want doubles, we can definitely work something out as that would only help me out anyways.

P.S. Shabbyblue's right...only 5 days left so we gotta pull through now if we want this!

what is the connection of posting this to my thread to help buy subs?

Appreciate the effort here, but unless you plan to buy about 1,000 subs I don't think it'll matter.

I tried offering to buy subs for people, too. So far, no takers.

As a die hard JLU fan, man do I feel your pain. I went through all of the same anguish last year. But you have to let it go. This is not the end of 6" DC figures. Hopefully the popular figures from the sub have a decent chance of showing up at a convention or further down the line at retail.

I ran across it about a year and a half ago not sure from what site but I saved it to kind of see what you come of it, and how accurate and what characters were to get made from it....and of course things get shuffled around all the time as they have already told us that. Of course like any of these list most of us assume speculation and take them with a grain of salt.

Well just to give an update. I ended up only having one person pay in advance and there were 7 others interested...had plenty of others respond but were non-committal. I'm sad to say that it just wasn't enough to make a difference in trying to manage it all and have enough of an impact so I'm giving a refund and just crossing my fingers hoping something will happen to save the sub...

Doesn't look like much though when looking at that thermometer.

It was a neat idea, definitely points for trying. I was thinking of taking you up on the offer. But out of the five shown there just wasn't much that I wanted. I kinda want Saint Walker and Larfleeze but I can definitely live without them. If they showed Huntress, The itch to buy in would have been there.

This year's selection was better and made me wish I subscribed. I bought Jay Garrick on Sale Day. I'm getting Lead, Platinum and Elasti-girl from one board member and Constantine from another. Mirror Master looks to be one of the best looking villains yet and I might try to get him on ebay if the mood strikes me. Atrocitus was a little disapointing and Poison Ivy looks just okay -- not great, not bad. I have DC Direct versions of those characters that I really like. No interest in Starman and Rocket Red. Black Mask is intriguing, I'd get him only if I can find a good deal.

I'm more of a retail guy, but I think DCIE is a great thing. I hope it miraculously goes through.
