DCU Club Subscription @ mattycollector.com

Recommended Posts

You live in Providence RI, I have a buddy who lives up there and works at the Providence Civic Center

 

I live pretty close. You know your history too. I still call it the Providence Civic Center even though they sold out to Dunkin' Donuts years ago.

 

I know a guy who has a concert I want that was filmed at the Civic Center back in 1981, my buddy works at the Civic Center and has been helping in trying to secure the concert from the guy to know avail. The Providence Civiv Center is one of the last of the old arenas still standing, many from that era are gone, they finally tore down Philly's Spectrum last year. The Providence Civic Center became very popular for acts who wanted the Boston area but couldn't get the Garden because of pyro restrictions.

It seems to me if they wanted to give this any kind of fair chance, they'd offer it for longer than two weeks. Especially since the first figure doesn't come out until April and they already have the first three ready to go.

If they really wanted this subscription to work, they'd give it enough time for people to become aware of it and time to order it. Like until December.

With four days to go, it seems that the thermometer on the Matty site has just crept into the mid twenties. If there is anything at all to this reading, and with four days to go for people to sign up, it's not looking good for this subscription service to happen.

 

 

I hope Matty can find another way to offer us that Jay Garrick figure.

so, lemme get this straight...there really is a demand for an online-only Voltron toy line but not to continue DC Universe Classics in any form?!

Voltron?! @bs@

I love it when people make it sound like if we don't bend over and take the subscription with a smile there won't ever be any DCUC again. If the sub flies, there will still be DC figures in stores, if it tanks, we'll still have DCUC in stores.

Even with wave 20 being "the end" at retail? how long after, in your crystal ball, what with all the DC reboot shenanigans and secret plans?

 

And my post was more to imply that Voltron sucks...big floppy donkey dick.

Well, there might be lines like Batman Legacy and maybe Superman Legacy and maybe Walmart might indulge in the occasional five pack but as far as a regular outlet for characters like Jemm, 80's Vigilante and Omac, it might be over.

 

All those guys who's wish lists resembled DC's entire Who's Who will have to pare them down substantially.

100% agree with this, plus i'd be pretty happy if the CnC thing ended. I wouldn't mind if they were just released to stores, similar to MU Galactus, Giant Man ect...

Or is this another "scam" like the BAF concept. I'm just curious Champ, is everything that requires you to spend money on toys a "scam"?

 

Pretty much... The BAF concept is a scam same as the subscription. Why can't mattel just make the figure and put it out in the store? I don't really see all these problems with the star wars or Gi Joe line. Even Hasbro abandoned BAF's with the Spiderman Classics and Iron Man movie waves.

the champ

Those lines never had BAF's to begin with. Toybiz never included them in their Hulk, Fantastic Four, Spider-man, and X-Men Classics lines.

Well it seems Mattel is really trying hard to get those subscriptions up, they just revealed that one of the figures slated for the subscription is Poison Ivy.

 

This is from their FB page

 

Hey DC Universe fans, you asked for it, you got it! Here is the reveal of another 6" character in the DC Universe Club Infinite Earths subscription program...Poison Ivy! To get this figure, as well as the other subscription figures, sign up for the club: http://bit.ly/mURsgQ

 

Personally I don't like the subscription even though I signed up for three of them. Prefer to have figures in the line that I want rather than another expense. This whole DC reboot is having negative effects everywhere. Also, where did Mattel say that the new line would not feature a BAF figure? I didn't read that anywhere???

"They also noted that if they don't get enough responses for the subscription program and end up canceling it this figure will not be released at regular retail. "

 

 

LOL How's that for desperate! Don't forget to lube up when you bend over for Mattel.

I really hope this goes through. I already want the 3 shown and another large guy, plus an Ivy! Dying for this, but with the numbers on in the 20's on the site. This sorta leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

I agree, I will admit that I do want Ivy and I did sign up for a subscription but ultimately I wish it doesn't happen.

 

One thing with Mattel, how many times they said this and that won't happen and then IT HAPPENS!!! Swamp Thing, Lobo,

In a shocking development, you once again have no idea what you're talking about.

 

-You can't abandon something you were never a part of. Toy Biz and Hasbro never put BAF in those lines.

 

-You keep mentioning Star Wars for dropping the build-a-droid. Yeah, it's true. But in case you haven't noticed Star Wars changes its tune every year. And I doubt you can prove that the juggernaut that is Star Wars lost money because they placed repainted droid parts in packages.

 

-Flounnderr's all like, "Yeah, I'd rather see larger figures at retail." Marvel Universe has made six large scale figures. Five of them have stunk up shelves and one of them hasn't had the chance yet. I'm sure you have plenty of excuses for that one.

 

-Hasbro just brought back Marvel Legends and with it the Build-a-Figure. Try to keep up.

 

-And then there's the stupidity of you calling buying figures a "scam." Grow up. There's nothing fraudulent or otherwise illegal about packaging parts of a larger figure or requiring you to buy a subscription to get them.

 

I guess in your mind XBox Gold and HBO are scams too.

6" figures will continue to come out, but DCUC as we know it is ending. No BAF, and no more C and D listers.

 

I'm glad someone's paying attention. It's pretty obvious that someone at DC or Warner Brothers is not happy and feels serious changes are needed.

 

Everyone here is pretty much unanimous in hating the reboot. You're gonna hate it even more when DC Universe Classics becomes DC Universe Rebooted Classics.

You know, this may be the first time I've ever heard of a toy company threatening the consumer. I was blowing-off the subscription because it was a lame idea. But now I have to say no just on the principle.

 

BRAVO Matty!!! Way to make the decision easier.

Poison Ivy?!?!? THAT'S who Mattel is holding hostage now???

 

Poison Ivy couldn't be included in a Batman Legacy wave or some other Batman themed multi-pack? Poison Ivy is one of those C-listers that we need this screwy subscription service to get?

 

 

Wow...! I might be naive but I didn't know Mattel also made balls... BIG ones!

its not a threat. its a @##@@ fact. dc is gonna change. dc and marvel always change. whats the big deal this time around. after flashpoint it even makes a @##@@ sense and if ordinary people wouldnt #@$#@ on court who invented the damn superman boots, we wouldnt have that problem right now. i dont even see it as a problem. most look ok in that reboot. as for the figures. you #@$#@ about that reboot and yet the sub isnt good enough? where does it make sense?? i realy dont get it. its not like matty is putting a @##@@ gun on your head and makes you choose. no the fact is dcuc is gone if it fails. they keep repeating it but everyone seems to be a spy and knows everything better whats going on behind the walls of mattel. no, everyone has to be taken aside and get asked gently from matty about something or he feels attacked. loosen up a little and think about it for a sec. oh no, guess what mattel is run by lex luthor and toyman they want to take over the world, oh no they dont deliver worldwide.... how many people wanted

 

-ivy ( a damn lot)

-atrocitus (booohooo wave 17 hasnt a leader, worst wave ever, i stop boohhooo. remember this?)

-flash (we have green lantern but not flash boohooo i hate mattel boohooo)

-metron ( with everyone chanting his name, he could have won. boohooo not good enough)

-cnc (boohooo i cant find giganta heads or legs boohoo. well guess what, cnc is done. you get big figs for 40 usd. isnt that better the 65usd on ebay???)

 

 

this list can go on forever if i want to. the sub is the next option. you want classics then get the sub, thats a fact or they have to stop. its a buisness decision. they have to take care of the dc license and pay the 2000 employees they have working for them.

Fine, if Warner is making DC shake things up and in return are making Mattel shake things up then what Mattel is doing with the subscription is nice....but its still another bill. The problem is that the blame it too focused on Mattel and not DC/Warner bros who is pushing this change to go through. Even still, the idea of the subscription isn't bad but at the same time that is an extra financial burden for collectors. The only way the subscritption would be good for me is if they reduce the amount of figures in their new rebranded line, I am talking about down to 4 or 5 figures, that way buying the sub and having a monthly bill won't be so bad.

This isn't DC/Warners doing. This is Matty trying to milk the consumer for every last cent they can.

 

For DC/Warner's part, especially considering the reboot they're trying to sell, I expect they'll get real tired of Matty's little "subscribe or such-n-such won't be released in retail" games.

 

DC wants their characters out there, in public, getting to as many people as possible. Matty, once you get past the CIA mentality and over-inflated sense of self-importance, is just another licensor. Just like the companies that made my Super Powers boxer-shorts or those Green Lantern activity books at the Dollar Store, it's Matty's job to get those characters out there. If DC decides Matty isn't doing their job . . . they're out. No more Four Horsemen, no more Fangirl, no more 80 dollar five-packs. Hasbro gets another billion dollar property and Mattel's living off welfare and Barbie money.

you see this i can accept. financial reasons is fine in my book. the prices went up on everything. if someone has to pay bills and all its sure that you have to think twice about it. but if mattel or warner wants to try something new, in hope that it turns out in everyones favor then lets try it out before we bash it.

 

i dont believe that warner is pushing mattel to do anything. someone came up with a concept and a few companys try to work together to make this a huge thing. they will even do tv commercials for the comic reboot. it will be great and if not then we get flashpoint 2 and everything gets set back lol. ok maybe for some it seems harsh that mattel says it like this. to me i dont care how they wanna sell the product. i want dcuc figures and ivy, atrocitus are on my top list. if i read an article, i see facts and what has to be done. well fact is classics is history. the companys wanna do something new and in a big way. if it helps pushing sales for them then why the hell not. what has to be done to keep classics going? get the sub, ok done, if one can afford it but dont come: ohh mattel is so mean, like a baby who got no presents for christmas and my favorite character isnt up there.... geeee i want a conduit figure since they started and i dont have it yet, i am still alive and can live without it.
