It sounds like it. The DCUC subscription is billed as being "the only place to get fan-demanded and true collector characters".

Cheers.

Thanks for those pic links!

I'm not sure about what I think though LOL. They make a valid point in that thread that for $15 a fig on a subscription service for 3 3/4inch figs is a bit much, especially with shipping on top, it doesn't seem right.

I thought the posability on the lion would be better, in that A stance would be possible, but it seems like that wont happen...


I guess I need to see more pics...I want Voltron, BIG voltron, but only if its meeting expectations for pricepoint

I'm fairly excited for Voltron - I don't have any memories of the show and never had any of the original toys, but I love BIG action figures and this will dwarf basically everything that isn't Stay Puft or the Balrog.

That said, no interest in going into the sub - for some reason Matty Collector / Digital River's international shipping tends to be about the same as the US shipping, possibly the only thing they get right, so I'd prefer to combine with my monthly MOTUC purchases, if there are any. On the other hand, making the sub figure for MOTUC such an essential character is really annoying and I may have to consider that, which irritates me.

So would they combine the 2 subscription services and ship as one? Has anyone done this with say, club octo and motuc?

IF that DID happen, then I may be more likely to take the plunge with volt and motuc at same time, ... but still more pics, specially black lion!!

It is a bit weird that the sub is skeletors THrone though....

You know I'm kidding,.... =-) BUT IT WOULD BE COOL!!!

the subs look real, they are on the same domain and there is no fishy ajax or iframe stuff going on, so unless someone hacked their webserver and put them up they just must have just been published too early

DCUC sounds so flippin sweet, I wasn't expecting that, I heard rumors of a DCUC sub but thought it would be regular waves (which would have been cool also)

And good old Sven is the Sub exclusive!! Laughing

Poor Sven (original blue lion pilot) had a boo boo in episode 4 or 5 & was never seen again.

I believe we saw images of some unreleased items from the original toyline & Sven was one of them.

Im more impressed with the articulated newer looking one tbh. It looks like fantastic movement can happen!
classics version is impressive for sheer size, but a bit underwhelming on the lions individually. I kinda think the toynami was a bit better in that department, and for the price point, I feel it should be... better??

I would still be interested in it though, but the price..!!

That trap is really cool looking. Anyone here planning to buy?

It is pretty pricey. I'm not sure how I will go with the Voltron sub as well as Eternia & Ecto-1.

Subscription Cost
◦Red Lion and Green Lion @ $35 each = $70
◦Blue Lion and Yellow Lion @ $40 each = $80
◦Black Lion = $50
◦Pilots: 5 @ $15 each = $75
◦Club-exclusive item/sign-up fee: $15 (billed at signup)
◦TOTAL $290 plus shipping/taxes/fees (varies by your location & shipping method chosen)

There's strength in numbers! Each pilot comes with one piece of the Voltron Collect and Connect™ ultra blazing sword. Collect all five figures to complete the sword!

Lance - Sword piece #1
Hunk - Sword piece #2
Pidge - Sword piece #3
Allura - Sword piece #4
Keith - Sword piece #5

Post by Sam on Fri Jul 22, 2011 6:49 am

ah, so the pricepoint of each lion ISN'T $50, i thought i read that somewhere...


well, I'm beginning to think i will kick myself if I dont get a sub on these...

wonder if there will be a 'ship when all available' option...

But, as Octane mentioned before, its probably an 'ah, no'

I can hope!!

those figures are looking pretty darn nice though.... I still have a Keith and Hunk figure on my old Voltron, but it seems Hunk has lost some weight since then LOL

Always wanted 6 inch Star Wars figures. Hope this comes to fruition at some point.

Rocky figures: http://www.toyark.com/news/san-diego-comic-con-58/sdcc-2011-new-rocky-figures-revealed-4459/

Look way better than the crap (and expensive to get) Jakks versions.

Star Wars in 6". Oh dear. Another action figure line to collect!

Just the basics of course. Luke, Han Solo, Chewbacca, C3PO, R2-DR, Leia and Darth Vader. And maybe a Storm Trooper or two. Perhaps the Emperor. And Boba Fett. This could mean a serious problem for my wallet.

Cheers.

So DCUC in it's current form is over with wave 20.
It will continue on Matty only,

Here is the link from AFI, it sort of makes the sub a bit more appealing now... I guess.
