DCUC Waves 3 & 4 News!!!

Post by behemoth on Thu Jan 22, 2009 7:03 am

I am, like everyone here, fed up with the lack of availability of DCUC in retail stores in Australia. So I emailed Mattel, and to my great surprise, received the following response within 1 hour!

Hello Charles,

Thank you for your email, please see DC Universe product that we have currently listed for 2009.

DCU Coll 6" Fig Asst available January
" Infin Heroes Single Asst available February.


Regards

Chris
Mattel Pty Ltd
Consumer Relations Department
Ph 1300135312
Email infoaust@mattel.com

So of course I ring up, and a nice woman proceeded to tell me that she has two items for the 6" line, " a big purple guy, and someone that looks like the Hulk". After clarification, it is definitely the Despero and Grundy waves. They are COMING SOON to TRU, Target, etc.

I asked about future waves, she said nothing in the system at present, but you never know.

Also, I asked if we as collectors could order direct from Mattel. She said as long as you have an ABN "and a store", you can order as much (or little) as you want.

Maybe we should put in our own order, if someone has an ABN/business???

Cool if true.

Although, it's a shame there isn't a Superman in those assortments. Or a more "regular" Batman.

Still, Green Lantern, Robin, Nightwing, Wonder Woman and Batman Beyond should all be fairly familiar to the general toy buying public (that is, kids and their parents).

Cheers.

Two things, never ever under any circumstances trust Mattel about anything, secondly why do casefresh continually hide the fact that they can order or have DCUC in stock? scratch scratch scratch

apparently, in my contacts with them, they want to debut them on the site soon, after some other section are up, they'll have wave 6 soon, if they are to do this recurrently, i'll be ordering my figures from them from now on.

i just ordered wave 2 and 3 from them

here's what CaseFresh told me when i enquired about them stocking DCUC figures:

Thanks for your inquiry regarding the DC Universe Classics Series which are now in our warehouse and will be listed on our site very shortly (after our Indiana Jones and Halo sections go live). Each series will be sold only as a complete case allowing collectors to have access to figure variants and the build-a-figure all in one easy purchase.

Currently we have series 1-4 with series 6 arriving next month (series 5 is a Wal-Mart exclusive and will not be released locally)

For future series pre-orders (Series 6 onwards) it is best to wait until they are listed on our site as we do not have them set up in our systems yet. For the four series that are in stock (Series 1-4) as these are in our warehouse we can sell them in advance of them being launched on our site.

They are $147.00 for a case of 6 (introductory pricing website price will be $165.00)

If you are interested in purchasing in advance of our site launch just place an order using the order form and paste the following into the products ordered field for which ever series you wish to order.

DC Universe Classics Series 1 Case $147.00
DC Universe Classics Series 2 Case $147.00
DC Universe Classics Series 3 Case $147.00
DC Universe Classics Series 4 Case $147.00

Regards,

Daisy

Classic Comics have Series 4 $135 for five figures. If a case is 6 figures, is Artermis the 6th figure in this set?

I am finding it hard to understand why Casefresh have NOT listed the DC Universe Classics on their website yet? They have had Series 1 and 2 for probably 3 months at least and now have 3 and 4 in their warehouse. I know they have offered them for sale to any of us whom have contacted them but seriously wouldn't you think they are missing out on possible sales by not having them up? All I can think of is, that Mattel has told a fellow board member that they intend having them at retail soon and perhaps that they have told Casefresh you cannot advertise these until we have them out in the stores. The leverage would be that they don't supply Casefresh if they go back on it. I could be off the track with that idea however the Mattel's and Hasbro's of the world can and do put them restrictions on the smaller suppliers for fear of upsetting the Coles and Woolworths power brokers. Casefresh probably could not come out and say it. Anybody else have any thoughts on this? Has Paul/Figuresdirect had any thing like that put on him from the big suppliers?

that's a theory i hadnt thought of Iceman, it makes sense.

i thought it was just a case of them trying to sell/catch up with older stock or maybe they contract a web designer thats been busy or something, but you might be onto something there

Hey guys,
I just pre-ordered Wave 7 and 8 through BBTS. I know they have a reputation for expensive shipping but according to calculations and at current exchange rates it works out to $28AUD for each figure shipped. I thought this wasn't bad considering the local comic shops (Minotaur) have them for $40 each.

That post with the whole 'you got shop and ABN you can buy direct from Mattel' is very intriguing and requires some deeper investigation.

Mattel does it again!

I just rang them again, asking about the status of DCU. They still haven't arrived yet, but are shown in the system as being due in February.

At this stage Toyworld and Toy Kingdom looks to be the place to get them (in March).

Of more concern however is that no future series appear in their system, so looks to be only series 3 and 4 this year. PATHETIC!

Obviously the buyers from the major retail stores do not know how well these figures sell in the states!
