Mattel sent an update out via email today to give an up-to-the-minute status report on their Club IE. The condensed version: the Club will now start in May and we have our line-up through September. The whole update:
DC Universe Fans,
It’s been a long time coming and DC Universe Club Infinite Earths is now on the horizon! Golden Age Flash will be the first figure released and we’ve just confirmed we’ll receive our shipment in mid-May. That means the club will launch in May instead of April. For subscribers, we’ll begin processing orders when the shipment is received (ETA is currently 5/12) and sending them out about 10 business days later. Although the club is starting in May rather than April, you’ll still get the nine figures you signed up for in 2012; we’ll just double up on figures for one month in the fall (you’ll have plenty of notice before it happens).
One thing of note: your club order will not be eligible for combined shipping until June, which is the first “renewal” month. You may recall that the first month a subscription order ships, it has to ship separately, then beginning with the second month it will be combined with your other subscriptions.
Okay, enough business — on to the good stuff! At press time, here is the release schedule (as always, subject to change):
May: Golden Age The Flash
June: Atrocitus (monthly figure) & Metron (club-exclusive)
July: Starman (monthly figure) & Rocket Red (club quarterly figure)
August: Mirror Master
September: Black Mask
Even though he won’t arrive until May, our Golden Age The Flash figure will certainly be worth waiting for! The original scarlet speedster, Jay Garrick, will come with his vac-metalized signature helmet and, like all figures in the line, will feature great details and full articulation.
We’ll post updates at MattyCollector.com as we get closer and have more information. For now, you can look forward to an amazing year packed with long-awaited true collector characters!
Thank you for being a loyal customer – we appreciate your business.
