DC UNIVERSE Classics WONDER TWINS 2 pack

Form of an action figure! Shape of San Diego Comic Con! That’s right, the one and only Wonder Twins, Zan and Jayna, are available for the first time in Mattel’s DC Universe™ Classics line sculpted by the world famous Four Horsemen with the articulation and detail you have come to expect from this award winning line! Figures are available in special window box packaging complete with character accurate accessories as well as amazing light and sound action! As an added bonus, available ONLY as an exclusive gift with purchase at SDCC : the Wonder Twins’ mischievous monkey, Gleek! Only available at the show, Gleek will not be with the set online afterwards. Gets yours today! Available without Gleek on MattyCollector.com after the show.

UPDATE: Mattel just released this statement in regards to SDCC exclusives.

Hey toy fans,

With the news of our SDCC figures spreading all over the web, thought I’d take a moment to clarify some questions fans had.

1: Yes, these are our SDCC figures. It was not an April Fool’s joke. (but we did get some of you huh?)

2: Yes, all of the action figure exclusives will be sold online after the show (ideally that Monday, but it is too far off right now to tell) on Mattycollector.com.

3: Yes there are a few other exclusives to reveal for the Hot Wheels brand. These will also be available online after the show on Hotwheelscollector.com. Look for more details soon.

4: Yes, Gleek is only available at the show. He is not in the package with the Twins but rather will be poly bagged as a “gift with purchase”. Why did we do this? Well simply, in years past we did not have online distribution through my awesome website Mattycollector.com. In years past the ONLY way to get any of the exclusives was at the show. Now that we have online sales, we wanted to find a way to still reward fans who come out to the show with an exclusive only at the show, and Gleek will only be a gift with purchase in San Diego. Will everyone be happy with this, maybe not, but at least the main items are online. In years past you couldn’t even get any of them without being at the show, now at least you can get the Twins online even if Gleek is not with them. This is why they are called show exclusives, because they are only at a show.

5: Yes, Hal’s head is removable and swappable. The reason Abin is nor in his animated uniform is to recreate Hal in two iconic uniforms, modern and vintage. Why does he not have his mask? Well because contractually we can not offer Hal this way. Period. But in the original story SOS Green Lantern he does not wear a mask and this set pays homage to that. And really, this was the best way for us to get Hal in the JLU line. It may not be what everyone wants, but we think it is darn cool.

6: He-Ro, like the other exclusives will be available online after the show. And you will learn why he has a star covered Power Sword in his bio…. Also, his package will be the same as a standard MOTUC figure, no electronics, so he can ship world wide.

7: We will have a brand new second booth this year to handle sales which will be run by our Toy Club, the same professional retailers who run our Mattel Toy Stores throughout the US. We will have limits (likely 3-5 per item) which we will announce well before the show as well as additional details. We will take cash and credit cards and we will ideally be selling on Preview Night (we are still working these details out with SDCC as they have lots of rules this year about when and how companies can sell exclusives). But we will be holding back product each day. So even if we sell out on Thursday, we will have more on Friday, Saturday and Sunday to make sure everyone gets a shot to buy. Traditionally the lines are much shorter on Saturday and Sunday, so don’t feel you HAVE to buy early on.

8: Yes we will have other product to sell including just a few He-Man, Beastman and Skeletors as well as a few other hard to find products and other current retail products. We won’t know what these are until closer to the show.

9: The AntiMonitor points will be redeemable at our main product booth. So if you just want your free AntiMonitor for 50 points and your raffle tickets for every 25 points (including the first 50) you don’t need to wait in the retail line. You will have the option of also buying an AntiMonitor (3 ¾” scale) for $10.00 at the retail booth if you don’t have points. You are limited to only one free figure however. Any additional points will get you additional raffle tickets for each 25 points you have. We will raffle off at least one hand made 30” AntiMonitor each day and you do not need to be present to win. We will post the winning ticket number. If the figure is not claimed by the following day’s auction it will be re-raffled off.

10: Is it possible to change anything now? (like offering Gleek in the Twins pack) All of the exclusives are far enough along in the process that we are going forward as is. Any changes now would mean the product will be delayed and not make the show.

Okay, I think that covers all the main points. Obviously we are very excited for this year’s show. It looks to be our biggest presence ever with tons of surprises in store. We’ll have more updates as we get closer to the show.

See you all in San Diego. I’ll be there to meet and greet in person!

A buddy just informed me that he will be going to SDCC and going by the Mattel booth for the Ghostbuster exclusive. He don't do DCUC so he will be getting me a Zen, Jaina and Gleek. I'm pumped.
I'm utterly uninterested in the Wonder Twins issue. People should be glad they're getting the twins at all, even if it is without Gleek. I did eventually get Keldor, but I never got She-Ra...

The Ghostbuster exclusive on the other hand, is a big PASS. They said they're doing a non-slimed version later that will have a PKE meter. That's two advantages over the SDCC version. I don't care if the later version doesn't have Slimer because I still have my NECA Slimer and the Mattel Slimer looks terrible by comparison.

D'oh! Now I'm not sure if I want to get the ghost busters one or not cause I'd much rather have him with the pke!
Here's the quote:

"[Question] As for the Ghostbusters exclusive announcement, it looks like Spengler has been slimed. Is this deco an exclusive for San Diego, or is this *the* Spengler that well be getting in the Ghostbusters line? Will this figure (or a non-slimed Spengler) also be available on MattyCollector.com after the show?

[Answer] Yes, this deco is for the convention and as will all of our SDCC product, it will be available online shortly after the show. We do have another non slimed Egon with a PKE meter coming down the line, but since Mr. Ramis was the first actor to sign for likeness rights, his is the first figure in the line. He is slimed to make it special for SDCC (and since he comes with Slimer!)"

The Wonder Twins issue is a joke. All these collectors (and when I say collectors I mean all 86 of them across the globe) are going to spite Mattel and not buy what looks like a great set of figures just because it doesn't include a glorified accessory.

Oh realy 86 huh? Funny if we'er such a small tiny lil speck then why would Mattel issue an 11th hour plea for all "86" of us collectors to bail them out?

ah must be that time of year, when people start to complain about exclusives at sdcc.....happens every year :-)

Its kind of like the changing of the seasons.

I think Wonder Twins are a superb choice of figures. Someone (I forgot who) said, here on these boards, that the line is called DC Universe Classics. It doesn't get much more classic than the Superfriends cartoon.

Lack of a monkey is depressing, though. Being a completist, I'll probably end up ordering it for some ridiculous amount...unless I make the show.

yes it does.

the whole Silver and Golden ages?

and besides that "CLASSICS" doesn't mean a thing.

what's classic about the Sinestro Corps?

Alan Scott, Jay Garrick, Wally West, Poison Ivy, Ra's al Ghul, John Stewart, Talia, Mirror Master, The Trickster, Capt. Boomerang, Mary Marvel, Dr. Sivana, Ocean Master, Plastic Man, Elongated Man, Zatanna.

WIth names like that I can see how Mattel could pass over them to make a "classic" Wonder Twins set. I don't collect DCUC anymore but if I still did they could put a whole zoo in this set and I wouldn't touch it.
