There was some pretty big news at the San Diego Comic Con that Mattel was offering a subscription service to fans of their action figure line.  The only problem? The offer was scheduled to close today.

Mattel needs a 100% buy-in from fans for the club to move forward, so the company has extended the signup deadline to August 14, 2011.

DC Universe Club Infinite Earths
True collector 6″ characters like Poison Ivy, Atrocitus, The Flash 1 and Starman, oversized figures and fan’s choice for the club-exclusive!

Voltron® Club Lion Force

Get 5 Lions that make a 23″ tall Voltron, 5 Pilots with pieces to make an Ultra Blazing Sword, plus a club-exclusive Sven!

Masters of the Universe® Club Eternia®

The Most Powerful Club in the Universe!™ celebrates the 30 year anniversary of MOTUC with Sorceress®, Kobra Kahn™ and more.

Ghostbusters™ Club Ecto-1
We’re showing ‘em how it’s done downtown with old favorites and someone you’ve been waiting for. (cough *Dana* cough)

One of the biggest holdups for this club is the long term commitment of money.  While it only costs $30 to sign up (your credit card is actually charged $45 to cover the first figure and the membership cost), by the end of 2012, you will have spent $255 plus taxes and shipping and other fees.  In this weird economy, it’s tough to make a long term commitment like that.
