Not sure if this is a good thing, in fact I’m convinced that it isn’t. Matty has always been pretty strict about their sign-up policies when it comes to their subscriptions, yet here they are RE-OPENING the 2013 subs! What bothers me is that the way fans were treated at NYCC last year, when all the Matty team wanted to do was talk about MOTU, and not anything else! I am worried that this will be the last year of DC Universe Classics Club Infinite Earths, the sub was down compared to the previous year, and even then it was tough to reach the top of the thermometer. So here we are, a quarter of the way the through the year and Matty is holding out the cup. Anyone who signs up now will miss out on all of the already released figures and also come of the exclusive ones. Whatevs, I hope it works and Matty gets some coin in their pocket, so head on over to MattyCollector.com to sign up! Anywho here is the official release:
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:
4/15 9am PT thru 4/30 11:59pm PT
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).
