Gold with Envy

It's 3:46 in the morning, and I need to get to sleep, but I can't go to bed until I come up with something to post for you fine Booster boosters. Fortunately for everyone, The Blot has bailed me out with this recent very Boosterrific tweet:

Got some new acrylic risers and redesigned by #BoosterGold display. For the most part you can see things better but Iā€™m not in love with how it turned out. I think I need to move the 6ā€ figures down to the bottom shelf. @TheBlotSays Twitter.com April 27, 2022

I don't think you need to *move* the 6-inchers, Blot. I think you just need to get some more.

Thanks for the save. If you haven't seen his action figure designer art toy blog, check it out at theblotsays.com.

UPDATE 2022-04-29 3:30PM: As you've probably read elsewhere by now, legendary artist Neal Adams has died. He never drew Booster Gold in a comic book, and now he never will. But we can see what Booster would have looked like in his distinctive style thanks to a piece Blot commissioned from Adams and shared with us in 2014.

Booster Gold by Neal Adams for The Blot

Thanks for all the good comics, Neal.

Entertainment for the Eyes and the Ears

Propjosh dropped me a line to let me know he is preparing to unleash the final season of his long-running Blue and Gold fan series. Here's what he had to say about what you'll see when you visit his YouTube channel:

Without giving away too much, this season will be very closely related to the Booster Gold comics. Five years passed since Ted Kord was killed and Booster is trying to cope while working alongside Rip Hunter. There will definitely be some episodes straight from the comics. There will also be an episode where they will be completely animated with possibly a guest star.

Here's a link to my trailer for the season.

I will have new episodes every Saturday starting Sept 5th until the end of the year.

September 5? That's tomorrow! Finally something to watch other than the constant stream of political advertisements on my television. Thanks, Josh!

And if you're looking for something else to entertain you this long Labor Day weekend, know that Blue and Gold -- A Superman and Booster Gold Podcast released a new episode earlier this week. You can find it via blueandgoldpodcast.blogspot.com.

Youtube videos and podcasts? Sometimes the Internet is pretty great.

Blue and Gold and Gray

This week, I finally got my hands on the new Knight Models DC Universe Miniature Game: Multiverse Blue Beetle & Booster Gold two-pack figures, and they're pretty much as advertised.

Knight Models DC Universe Miniature Game Booster Gold

I ordered them from GameNerdz.com.

As you can see, the miniatures (34mm high) are sold unpainted and unassembled, so you'll need to do a little work to get them display (or play) ready. For example, my Beetle fit poorly in his stand, and my Booster had some residual resin flash that required cutting away with an xacto blade. (You can see the white line under his outstretched arm.) Your mileage may vary.

If I do ever get around to painting them ā€” and they turn out well ā€” I'll be sure to let you know how that goes. (The list of things I say I'm going to get around to only gets longer and longer. Sigh.)

Xtreme Craftsmanship

I've been such a downer recently, let me make it up to you by showcasing something truly awesome. Specifically this awesome custom Booster Gold figure in the style of Kenner's Total Justice line from the mid-90s created by Caenman and shared on FigureRealm.com:

While I've never been a fan of the Total Justice figures or the excretable tie-in comic series, something about knowing someone in 2018 took the time to make such a high-quality homage to Booster Gold's ugliest power suits just tickles my fancy. *standing ovation*

Enjoy your weekend, everyone.

Objects May Be Closer Than They Appear

Knight Models, manufacturer of the DC Universe Miniature Game, has a new set available. In a word: Bwah-ha-ha!

Knight Models DC Universe Miniature Game Blue Beetle & Booster Gold

These miniatures are only about an inch-and-a-half tall, and come in unpainted parts. (Don't expect to find any as good looking as the solicitation picture out of the box.) They are already for sale in Spain, and should be coming to specialty gaming stores stateside later this month.

More details available at knightmodels-store.com.
