Sale Ending and December Preview

DC Universe Color of Fear 2 Karu-Sil and Romat-Ru (1200x800).jpgMattel had a couple of updates on its Facebook page yesterday.  First, a reminder that the sale on DC Universe items is ending on Monday (at 11:59PM ET, if you like to really to push the limits).  It’s based on the number of items purchased.

  • Buy any two or three DC Universe products and get 15% off
  • Buy any four or more and get 25% off

I’m surprised that not one of the products that are included in the sale have sold out yet, including the really fantastic DC Universe Classics Color of Fear 2-Pack.

Second, a preview of the items going on sale on December 15.  I knew I wasn’t crazy calling the DCUC Justice in the Jungle 2-pack “Animal Instincts!”

December 15th is almost here! 12” Egon Spengler, Retro-Action Green Arrow, 1:24 Mater, Animal Instinct 2-pack and more on sale Tuesday, 12/15 at Noon ET/9am PT

But there’s so much more:

Mattel posted a general update for its collector lines.  It’s quite long, so I’ll summarize it here.

  • DC Universe Classics wave 11 will be sold on in master cases of 8 (both Steppenwolves, regular Deadman), but may not be until after the holidays
  • 12-inch General Zod and 8-inch Green Arrow are coming on December 15
  • New JLU 3-packs should be hitting Target in force before the holidays
  • Select Avatar figures on MattyCollector starting December 1
  • WWE is coming January 1 (yes, we know!)
  • Masters of the Universe Classics Moss Man sample will be posted as soon as the “fur” color is right (I thought it was moss :-))
  • Mattel is working on Battle Cat packaging – currently his mask is falling off in package (a box with blister back)
  • Evil Lyn will be the April 2010 figure, and will be featured in Toy Fare #150, the 2010 preview issue
  • More Ghostbusters are planned, but it might not be until San Diego Comic-Con 2010 until we get all the news


Also, don’t forget – it’s sale day on on Monday at Noon Eastern.  I’ll be picking up a Masters of the Universe Scareglow via my subscription, and will probably pick up a couple DC Universe Classics Color of Fear 2-packs separately.

Gee, Mattel, can you and Digital River *please* work on finding a way to combine extra orders with the subscriptions?  Don’t penalize your loyal customers.
