Mattel Leaks Their SDCC Announcement

Last night Mattel accidentally listed their new DC Universe Classics subscription line.  This is one of their announcements they are making on Friday at San Diego Comic-Com.   I'll be signing up for it.  I will want the figures plus I won't have to deal with the white screen of death and horrible wait/refresh times on sale days.

Check it out:

Club Infinite Earths
With the all-new 2012 Club Infinite Earths, the DC Universe becomes part of the Mattel subscription family for the first time. While you'll still find 6" figures at retail, will be the only place to get fan-demanded and true collector characters!
This club is 100% the result of fan requests. In order to make it happen, we need to reach a certain number of subscriptions. Throughout the subscription sign-up period, the thermometer will be updated to show how close we are. If we don't hit the goal, then we won't be able to offer the club. But if we do (and we really hope we do), then the club's a "go" and you can look forward to the ultimate DC Universe toy collecting experience!

And in a first, the club-exclusive figure is going to be chosen by you, the fans! Just click here to vote on the figure you want us to make should the club go forward.
So, DC Universe fans, the fate of Club Infinite Earths is truly in your hands. Spread the news to your fellow collectors so we can make it a reality!

How Club Infinite Earths Will Work
  • Purchase a membership to Club Infinite Earths for $30 and, should the club go forward, you’re guaranteed to receive all of the official club figures released during the year. There will be 9 monthly 6" figures and 3 "oversized" figures (one shipped approximately each quarter). You’ll also receive the club-exclusive for 2012, to be revealed following the close of voting in our poll.
  • Every month starting approximately April 2012, you'll be automatically shipped the Club Infinite Earths figure. About every quarter, you'll also be shipped an "oversized" figure. You'll be billed as figures ship. Figures revealed to date are NAME and NAME.
  • Figures will begin shipping approximately two (2) business days prior to the official on-sale date.
  • Exact figures will be announced approximately one to two months before each on-sale date.
  • The special club-exclusive figure will be shipped sometime around the second quarter of the year. The figure is included in the cost of the membership ($30), however applicable shipping and taxes/fees will be charged at the time of shipment.
  • Special convention items, reissues, weapons packs, stands and other accessories are not included. Mattel reserves the right to offer those and any other DC Universe items, and reissue non-subscription items. Subscriptions will not include any additional items beyond those listed here.
  • All figures EXCEPT the club-exclusive figure will also be available at around the 15th of the on-sale month without the membership. You will have the option to buy additional figures, but availability isn’t guaranteed and the purchase limit is ten (10) per person.
  • The only way to purchase the club-exclusive figure through Mattel will be to buy a membership to Club Infinite Earths! This item will not be sold separately on
  • For 2012, subscriptions are available for DC Universe, Ghostbusters™, Masters of the Universe Classics and Voltron®. You may buy as many subscriptions of any kind and in any combination you like and they'll all ship together when purchased in the same transaction!
