    yep, Tim Drake (as the current red robin) sports a robin mask, not a cowl, wings not a cape etc, unless you meant the pre new 52 red robin but I like the new 52 one

    Pics of Jay Garrick up. He looks great, although very tall.

    Great, I just realized that if I want any New 52 figures, I have to buy DCD's lackluster way late figures.
    Can someone PM me the US number for Matty? I want to talk to someone who might has a clue of what is going on.

    From TNI today. I don't think this effects the cartoon. Retailers are no longer supporting DC toys.

    Mattel has let it slip through their Mattycollector message boards last week that they have canceled their 4" & 6" Young Justice lines due to lack of demand. This would seem to be yet another casualty in Mattel's DC Comics based toy lines.

    It's MAttel IMO, they have a very bad relationship with retailers regarding boy lines from what I've heard, but they are launching a new Batman line aimed at kids, probably the 'beware the batman' toys, so there will be DC toys in stores, just not obscure or comic based ones.

    How is that possible? They need 7 months to be able to produce enough figures to cover everyones' subs.

    I think that might be a miscommunication - I think what was meant originally by Mattel is that Jay will be sold on 5/15 on the site...not that you could start subscribing at that point. It's a Day-of-Sale thing.

    Yep, I totally read it wrong. I thought they were selling more subs. D'oh!

    Well since Mattel is completely putting the axe on DCU-type figures, I have to go to DC Di... uh... Collectibles to get any figures I want of the New 52 characters outside of Superman and Batman. Problem is, DC... Collectibles' figures don't usually have even half the articulation Mattel's had, and their joints are so fragile that they feel like they are going to break. Plus, they are more expensive, they usually do not come with accessories. As for the late part. Figures from the New 52 should have been out no later than Feb, but the first figure is not until June, and Superman is not even coming out until January. How can you keep your "main attraction" on hold for 16 months after his debut? That is stupid. ANd of course, since I want Resurrection Man, Voodoo, Grifter, Helspont, I am going to have to wait even longer than that. By the time DC gets to them, the New 52 universe will be reverted back to the original universe.

    Yeah, he is right, they do say on their facebook page teh sub will be available. I just gave them a nice response:

    How can you reoffer the sub? You said it takes 7 months to make sure you have enough product to cover the sub and then some day of sale product. Now you are saying people can just buy the sub the day the first figure of the sub goes on sale? How is that possible? Or have you been lying to us all of this time? It isn't bad enough you decide to cancel the DCU line on us, especially after showing us Larfleeze, then say there will be no new molds in the DC sub line, so no Doomsday, Killer Croc, or Granny Goodness, and finally make Jay tall and Atrocitus short, but now you have suddenly found a way to sell the sub again? What kind of ******** is this? Why not just offer the sub all year round then and let those who want to jump on the bandwagon at any given time for all of your lines?

    I get what you guys are saying, but I still think it's a miscommunication, due to Mattel's badly-worded statement.
    The first shipment goes out in May and features an all-new 6” Golden Age The Flash figure. If you missed out on this awesome subscription, a limited quantity will also be available at MattyCollector.com on May 15th at 9am PT.

    I think what that means is that if you missed out on automatically getting Flash because you didn't subscribe, then a limited quantity of Flash will be on sale on 5/15. I just think the way it's worded is awkward. They should have used the words "awesome figure" instead of "awesome subscription."

    That said, if it does turn out that they start selling subs again, people will go bananas.

    I'm now wondering though if they just mean extra figs are available like they do with motuc day of sale?

    I think it's obvious that they meant you can buy Jay without the sub.

    Well they can reoffer the DCUC sub because its sub sales stunk so I think they are just taking from day of stock.

    The doors won't be blown down for DCUC so they are simply trying to lock more people in instead of hoping the remainder is sold day of

    Mattel not only miserably failed their business classes, they apparently flunked English grammar, as well. As written, it does indeed say the "subscription" will be available, as the "limited quantity" has no other noun in the introductory phrase to refer to. But the context (and the fact that we know Jay will be up for day of sale) makes it clear they were talking about the figure, not the sub, being for sale.

    Having dealt with patch notes from many video games, many big companies seem to not have people who specifically handle stuff like this. They let readers correct their mistakes or ask questions and they will come back and say 'yes, this is what we meant.' Businesses no longer have rooms full of secretaries to proof read everything, they typically have only a handful now since computers do most of the work.

    And PR tends to be more about putting spins on what is said. With WoW they would slowly transfer you from 10million subscriptions to 10 millions players. When anyone who plays the game will tell you that is a loose correlation at best. Especially when you find out in places like China they only have one character per subscription (cheaper per though) and frequently have multiple accounts. Even in the US it's not uncommon for someone to have two or three. That just as an example of PR isn't going to be the best place to find 'the good English' either.

    DC Club Infinite Earth day of sales

    How quickly do these get sold out in?

    Minutes?
    Hours?
    Days?

    Should I pre order them from another website to guarantee me these figures and pay a bit more or do you think I'll be safe getting them off Matty?

    Most items from Matty that are not MOTUC tend to stick around for hours or days. I do not recall a DC item ever selling out in minutes

    As long as you plan on being on Matty within 1-2hr of the sale starting you should be fine. If for some reason you miss out Big Bad Toy Store usually has all the Matty figures for ~$5 more because of their subscriptions they buy

    The first figure in the DC Sub comes out next month, May 15th, and will be Flash (Jay Garrick.)

    I'm going to merge this with the existing DC Classics thread.
