Our Club Third Earth celebrates the hit animated series with four new figures, plus a subscription exclusive.

That means your shipment will occur approximately December 2016.

Benefits of Club Third Earth Subscription

  • Pay $30 for a membership now and in 2016 we’ll automatically ship and bill you for every Club Third Earth release. That includes…
  • Subscription-Only Mumm-Ra™! The evil sorcerer is available only with a subscription, and will never be sold on The best way to ensure you own this figure is to subscribe.
  • Lower Prices, Guaranteed Products: The price for figures is $30 each when shipped through a subscription. These figures will be $35 each when purchased during All Access on regular monthly sale days. They may sell out quickly so a subscription is the only way to guarantee you’ll get every club release.
  • Early Access to Non-Subscription Products: Beginning September 2016, all Club Third Earth subscribers get Early Access to most non-subscription products, regardless of brand. That means you’ll have the chance to purchase hot items not available through subscriptions before they’re released to the general public, like our 2015 “traveling convention” offering, the Hover Robot three-pack. Availability is first-come, first-served during Early Access and some quantities may be limited, so if products sell out to subscribers during the Early Access period, that’s it – no additional product will be made available to non-subscribers at that time.
  • Early Shipping: Subscription orders generally begin shipping two business days before non-subscription orders so subscribers usually get their orders before non-subscribers.
  • Monthly and Single Shipping Options: If you’d like us to send all your figures to you in one package rather than monthly to save money on shipping, then this single shipping option is for you! You’ll still get all the 2016 club releases but we’ll hold them in our warehouse, then ship and bill them all at once, at the end of the subscription period. (Want them every month instead? Click here to choose the monthly shipment option and get your products as soon as they’re released.) Have another 2016 subscription? Read below to find out about combined shipping.

Beginning with the first shipment in September 2016, your credit card will be pre-authorized approximately five (5) calendar days prior to the All Access regular monthly sale date of each Club Third Earth item.

  • Combined Shipping: Have other subscriptions? All subscription orders from all brands with product releases in the same month will ship together regardless of whether they are purchased in the same transaction. They must have the same billing address, shipping address, payment details and shipping method in order to be shipped together. Combined shipping will occur only after the first shipment has occurred. For monthly shipment subscriptions this will be in October (the first monthly shipment is in September). This option is not available for Single Shipment subscriptions to Club Third Earth. For monthly shipment subscriptions, if you’d rather they didn’t ship together, you’ll be able to change this default in the My Subscriptions section after the first figure ships.
  • Non-subscription Purchases: Subscriptions will not include any additional items beyond those listed above. Special convention items, reissues, weapons packs, stands and other accessories are not included in subscriptions. Mattel reserves the right to offer those and any other Masters of the Universe® items, and to reissue non-subscription items. Please note that official club releases may or may not be available for purchase at our All Access monthly sales (usually on the 15th of the month or the first business day following the 15th of the month). If club releases are made available, both subscribers and non-subscribers will have the chance to purchase them during All Access, but the price will be higher than through the subscription ($35 for most basic figures). Availability isn’t guaranteed and the purchase limit is usually ten (10) per person. Non-subscription products are charged and shipped separately from subscriptions.
  • Account Changes: Should your card expire or you move during the membership period, you’ll be able to update any account information through the My Subscriptions section on after the first shipment in September 2016. If your account information changes prior to the first shipment, please call Customer Service at 1-877-GO-MATTY.

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on,, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post,,,, Boing-Boing,, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.

    I rushed onto this yesterday without reading through it all cos ThunderCats is my fave cartoon ever and I’ve always wanted a new range of figures. I probably should have at least read through the shipping options. My impatience went for per figure delivery when it would be cheaper to do one big lot but I know I’d just get jealous if people start posting pics of their Lion-O while I’m still waiting for the end of the wave before I get all mine. Gonna cost me a lot of money but then if there’s any I don’t like I can always resell on eBay I suppose. I also misunderstood that the club-exclusive Mumm-Ra is his mummy form rather than his battle form though which is disappointing but never mind. Odd that Pumyra is getting a figure before Cheetara. I like Pumyra but I been wanting a quality Cheetara figure since I was a kid.

    By the way the second photo is of the earlier Lion-O headsculpt while the main picture is of the more cartoon-accurate update. Just to be clear. 🙂
