    2013 Eternia & Filmation "Lite" Subs Available Again from 4/15 - 4/30!

    I was just browsing Mattycollector for any recent news and noticed this...

    http://news.mattycollector.com/blog/...-from-415-430/

    Toy Fans,

    One of the biggest requests we get is from people who missed the subscription enrollment period and want to jump into the current year. If you’re one of them, here’s your chance because we’re re-opening enrollment in our 2013 subscriptions!

    This is a “club light” kind of thing… subscriptions purchased during this period will include figures released from May through December of 2013 (figures released January through April aren’t included). We’ll update each club’s product page with all the details when they re-open for purchase on 4/15, but here are the basics:

    Subscriptions Available

    4/15 9am PT thru 4/30 11:59pm PT

    Club Eternia®

    Club Eternia Monthly subscription includes one figure approximately every month for eight months from May thru December 2013 for a total of eight figures. The total commitment will be $350 (8 monthly figures @ $25 = $200), 3 beasts/variants/multi-packs/other (1 each at $25, $50, $75 = $150) plus shipping/taxes/fees. There is no membership fee and the club-exclusive King He-Man™ figure with map of Subternia and voting privileges for the packaging art are not included. Upcoming figures revealed to date are Karatti™ (May), Octavia™ (June), Clamp Champ™ (July), Castaspella™ (August), and Mantenna™ (October). Please note there is no September figure and instead we’ll have two basic figures in October – one is Mantenna™ and the other will be revealed at SDCC.

    Club Infinite Earths

    Club Infinite Earths
    Monthly subscription includes one figure approximately every month for eight months from May thru December 2013 for a total of 8 figures. The total commitment will be $144 (8 figures @ $18 each) plus shipping/taxes/fees. There is no membership fee and the club-exclusive Monsieur Mallah & The Brain figures are not included. Upcoming figures revealed to date are Wally West Flash (May), Red Hood (June), Freddy Freeman (July), Fire (August), and Huntress (September).

    Club Black Freighter

    Club Black Freighter Bi-monthly subscription includes one figure approximately every other month beginning in May for a total of four figures. The total commitment will be $100 (4 figures @ $25 per figure) plus shipping/taxes/fees and there is no membership fee. Upcoming figures revealed to date are Silk Spectre (May), Night Owl (July), and The Comedian (September). The final figure, shipping in November, will surely be the smartest one in your collection.

    Club Filmation

    Club Filmation Monthly subscription includes one figure approximately every month beginning in July for a total of six figures. The total commitment will be $150 (6 figures @ $25 per figure) plus shipping/taxes/fees and there is no membership fee. Upcoming figures revealed to date are Icer™ (July), Shokoti™ (August), and Batros™ (September). We’ve also revealed a mysterious sword that will belong to the November figure. Find out its owner at SDCC, along with the October and December figures.

    Early Access

    New subscriptions for Club Eternia®, Club Infinite Earths, and Club Black Freighter get Early Access beginning in May 2013 and all Club Filmation subscriptions get Early Access beginning in July 2013.

    Combined Shipping

    If you have current club subscriptions and purchase additional subscriptions during the April open enrollment, all of your subscriptions will be eligible for combined shipping the next time after the new subscriptions initially ship. New Club Eternia® and Club Infinite Earths subscriptions will be eligible beginning in June (the first month they ship is May), new Club Black Freighter subscriptions will be eligible in July (it’s bi-monthly and begins in May), and new Club Filmation subscriptions will be eligible in August (it begins in July).

    Purchase Limits

    There will be a limited number of these subscriptions available. You can purchase as many new subscriptions of any kind as you like until they sell out.

    Again, these “club light” subscriptions will be open from 4/15 at 9am PT through 4/30 at 11:59pm PT. If you’d like an email reminder and you’re not already signed up, click here to register. You can also join me on Facebook, Twitter and in our Fan Forums and you’ll get reminders there, too.

    I'm surprised they waited so long. I suppose this must be in response to interest sparked by Grayskull, but I also suspect they're worried about not being able to sell enough duds with their current marketing strategy. Grab a few more subs because what could be better than guaranteed sales for whatever you decide to produce.

    Personally, I think it's great because I've been a subscriber for the whole run and I missed out on the sub this year due to a credit card boo-boo. I would have bought two subs like normal but thanks to the outrageous prices Mattel has decided to charge I've scaled back to buying only one, which works out better for me. I'll likely get one just so I don't have to bother with their website, but I'm not thankful or anything because subscribing hasn't exactly been an enjoyable experience. I'd buy some other subs, especially the Watchmen one, but I don't think I'll be buying any more Mattel products after watching how they conduct business while collecting MOTUC.

    Wow, the end date for the "club light" subs is cutting it really close to May figure. (Karatti) Will they have enough to send out to everyone at the same time? Hopefully some of us who signed up for a full year won't get put on a waiting list or something in favor of the newbs...lol

    Yeah, sadly no Netossa, Ram Man, Jitsu, King He-Man, Fang Man, or Snake Face figures for the Club Eternia "Lite" subs but you still get the majority of the 2013 figures. At least the Club Filmation sub is intact with all 6 figures.

    It's a nice option for new collectors who don't want to deal with DOS...I would've signed up for a 2012 Club Eternia "Lite" sub if it had been offered last year!

    I got so excited when I initially saw this as I missed the sub last year but it's very disappointing that it doesn't include the figures sold so far.

    So just to confirm, this does include the Fighting Foe Men? When are they due for release, May?

    Strange that they are doing this! The paranoia in me says they have had a lot of people cancel their subs but the optimist hopes castle grayskull has sparked a lot of new interest in MOTUC.
    Making sure the vintage line is fully reproduced in the classics line

    Wait...wait.

    I thought the point of offering the subscriptions so far in advance of the coming year was to know how many figures to put into production ahead of time?

    So they can alter the production that they established back in August 2013 within a month's notice?
