Since February we’ve been hearing about the upcoming Total Heroes Firestorm action figure from Matty Collector. This figure will includes interchangeable hands, and heads for the New 52 Ronnie Raymond version of Firestorm, Jason Rusch incarnation, as well as Fury (pictured below)! Most importantly, it includes an attachable floating Professor Stein head!! Well, they’ve finally announced the release schedule!
If you’re a Matty Collector subscriber, you’ll be allowed to purchase your Total Heroes Firestorm action figure starting Thursday, 11/13 at 8am PST (11am EST) through Friday, 11/14 8am PST (11am EST). Everyone else will have the chance to purchase starting on Monday, 11/17 at 9am PST (12pm EST).
Be advised that once the figure goes on sale on Thursday, November 13, it is subject to “early access sellout”. That means if too many figures are ordered by Matty Collector subscribers, it may not be available to the general public on Monday, November 17. Also, I’ve been advised by some previous Matty Collector members to brace myself for high prices. Some estimates I’ve heard include $30 for the figure and $10 for shipping. That is simply an estimate and not a recommended price or promise of a price (it could be significantly higher or lower — who knows).
If you want to read the entire announcement, here are the details:

I gotta tell ya, a tiny evil voice in my mind considered not promoting this release date to ensure I get my own hands on one of these figures. However, my overall love for Firestorm and my fellow Match-heads won the day! So get ready for the upcoming purchasing frenzy!
My thanks to folks like Earth-2 Chris who sent me information on the upcoming availability!
Support Firestorm (and this Matty Collector figure)! Fan the flame!
