If you’re a Club Eternia subscriber, Early Access for April is now open. Most months there’s not much more available than what you’re getting in your sub, besides some re-releases of older Masters of the Universe Classics and inventory clearing of the remaining DC Universe Classics stock. However, this month, subscribers get a shot at Loo-Kee and Kowl (the chase figures that will pop up from time to time like the Spirit of Hordak did last year) and Goat Man (the figure for the “other” conventions this year).
Those figures won’t be part of the All Access sale starting tomorrow at 9AM PST, but in addition to the Club Eternia Masters of the Universe Classics Blade, they’ve got Batros and Strong-Or from Club Filmation, a new mini pack with Skeletor and Moss Man, and the remaining Wally West Flash figures from DC Universe Classics.
DC Comics has been teasing Barry Allen’s Flash costume from its upcoming WB Flash pilot, and I’ve got to believe that DC Collectibles is working on an action figure version. With the Flash spinning off from Arrow (now in its third season), would it be too much of a gamble for DCC to start work on a figure?
While it may be premature to predict success for another Flash TV show (the Jon Wesley Shipp Flash lasted just one season), a Flash action figure could find its way into DC Collectibles’ Arrow line of figures, should the series not take off on its own. Green Arrow and Deathstroke will survive their transition from comics to small screen to action figures, and I think the Flash could too. Are you guys excited for this new version of the Flash?
I know it’s the holiday season and that we should expect sales, but I’m exhibiting my crotchety old man ways and hating on the overuse of terms like Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and the like. A couple weeks ago, I was at my front door screaming at the neighborhood kids to get off my lawn when I heard about Brown Thursday and Mattycollector’s 8 Day Cyber Monday Week that started on Tuesday, and nearly had an aneurysm.

The best discounts are on the DC Collectibles stuff, as you might expect. I’m just trying to prep myself for the next couple of Black Fridays until Christmas (which thankfully falls on a Wednesday) is over. Bah humbug!
