Well guys got an email from Mattel Australia today...

My email...

Sent: Tuesday, 10 February 2009 1:03 PM
To: Info, AUST
Subject: Product Enquiry


Hi Mattel,

I am writing to enquire about an Australian release for your DC Comics Unlimited Classics (DCUC) line of action figures. I have been collecting this line since it initial release and spending so much money on shipping costs because the only way to acquire these great action figures is to buy them from the U.S. I am hoping that Mattel Australia will be bringing them over to our shores and have them available from Australian outlets like K-Mart, Big W, Toys ‘R’ Us, Target and Myer. I had heard a rumour that they would be released here in late February or early March. Is there any merit to this rumour. If you do not have plans to release these figures here you should definitely reconsider as these figures are very popular among Australian collectors both young and old. It is not fair that the rest of the world get these in their local outlets and Australians’ have to buy them from the U.S. Especially considering the low Australian dollar and the exorbitant shipping costs sometimes making each figure cost between $30-$40 each.

Thank you for your time.

The reply...


Hello Matt,

Thank you for your email, the DCU Coll 6"Fig Asst should be availble February/March and the DCU Infin Heroes Sngl Asst will be available in Feb/March at Toyworld and Big W.

got an update from Mattel this morning...not great news though...

Hi Matt,

Apologies for the delay in replying to you.

I can confirm that from Feb, a limited number of DCU figures will be available through toy specialists. From April, TRU will have 400 units available, and Big W will be promoting this item in June.

We do present this range to all our retailers, but due to their nature of being predominantly adult collectibles, and not volume drivers, unfortunately very few retailers get on board with this range.

If you are after particular figurines, please refer to the below website, where you can order online:

thanks,

Hanna

When it says 400 units is that 400 cases or 4oo individual figures?

IF anyone wants a reliable source of these from USA feel free to PM me. Price is cost (I thin about 12USD a figure taking into account taxes) plus 20% PLUS shipping. So if that floats your boat...hit me up with PM.
