Mattel has revealed the first assortment of DC Universe All-Stars, which will be replacing the DC Universe Classics at at retail.
As you know, the DC Universe Classics line is finishing up at retail with the highly anticipated Wave 20, including the Fan’s Choice Collect and Connect® Nekron. Then, following Wave 20, we’ll introduce a completely new DC Universe 6″ line at retail, the DC Universe All-Stars. Designed especially to complement the DC Universe Club Infinite Earths figures, this new line will blow your collector mind!
You first saw Larfleeze at New York Comic Con. Here’s another look at him, plus your first official sneak peek at the rest of the figures from the first mix at retail…
Larfleeze: The wielder of orange light finally joins the DC Universe! This collection-essential figure builds out the Corps.
Superboy Prime: The only super-powered being on Earth Prime, he comes complete with his Anti-Monitor armor.
Flashpoint Plastic Man: Check out this edgy new version of Plastic Man from the popular Flashpoint comics.
Batman Beyond: Behold our sweet take on the iconic Caped Crusader.
So there they are – the four amazing figures that make up the first mix at retail. It’s been an awesome year for the DC Universe line and with the DC Universe Club Infinite Earths program on Mattycollector.com and the DC Universe All-Stars line at retail, 2012 is going to be even better!
PK’s Pulse: So, I love DC Universe, and I am a proud owner of a DC Infinite Earths Subscription. I am so happy to see that some figures will still be found at retail, but a re-release of the Series 3 Batman Beyond, and Plastic Man from a storyline that many do not care about? I am just glad that these are not going to be part of the sub, nor will there be a build-a-figure, so I can skip them!
