Reign Of Superman Figures Coming From Mattel...Again? (UPDATE: CANCELED)

by Jay Cochran
December 06, 2011
UPDATE: We are now getting reports from those who pre-ordered these last week that BBTS is mailing customers telling them that his assortment has been canceled. Thanks to everyone who wrote in about these. is taking pre-orders for a new assortment of "Reign of Superman" figures from Mattel. The assortment is slated to include the following:

- Superboy
- Steel
- Eradicator
- Cyborg Superman
- Doomsday

These figures are slated to be released in February 2012. Each of these characters have been previously released by Mattel in plastic form in either their old DC Super Heroes line or the more recent DC Universe Classics line. Since no images of these have been released it is unclear if these will be new sculpted figures or simply re-issues of the existing ones.

Check out images below of the previously released versions of these figures.

Hmm. I won't say I thought it was completely a bad idea to reissue the Reign Of Superman figures in specific packaging, but it was a bit of a headscratcher that they'd actually do it.

I think they'd do well as a Walmart box set of five like they were doing. The replacement Supermen... Read More

More likely, they listened to the tepid reaction to a bunch of reissued figures. This set sounded like a hastily thrown together idea in he first place.

It's a little intriguing that they would do this since it's been said so often that they wanted to promote the present and future at retail instead of the past, but I can see the appeal and it might be purchased enthusiastically by some. I expect there will be a lot of reissuing of figures... the... Read More

Even though they are rereleasing the old DCSH Doomsday, I bet a larger one will be one of the oversized figures in the sub.

Just out of curiosity, since Mattel seems to now be re-releasing DCSH/DCUC figures. Would anyone mind or be pissed, if Mattel re-released the DCUC C&C figures, but as full figures (fully built Solomon Grundy, or Bane, etc.)? I ask because I know that many C&C figures now go for ransom on eBay.
