Brainiac: 2nd Series 23-Back (Fan Club Offer)
Kenner re-released Brainiac on three of the four different card styles
for the 2nd series action figure assortment. One of the three confirmed
packaging styles, shown above, is the 23-back card containing the "Fan Club Offer".
While the card front contains a text offer banner in the lower right corner, the card
back lacks any offer information. Instead, promotion details reside inside the mini-comic
premium's inside front cover. Proof of purchase submission was not necessary for this
promotion's redemption. Instead, the offer required submission of the "application"
cut from the mini-comic or a 3" x 5" card containing name, address, and birthday
(the same information requested on the "application") and a $3.00 check or money
order by June 30, 1986. The Fan Club Offer Kit contained: charter membership
certificate, color sticker, newsletter, deluxe patch, color photo, and reduced rate
DC Comics subscription information. Kenner originally offered this promotion on 1st
series "Fan Club Offer" card styles, however the promotion was re-issued for the 2nd
series figure release. Kenner updated the expiration date located on the card front's
banner to read June 30, 1986 as opposed to the original 1st series expiration date of June 30, 1985.
Kenner released all eleven 2nd series figures on the 23-back "Fan Club Offer" card style. All twelve
1st series characters also saw re-release on this card style.
