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.
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 — and they turn out well — 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.)

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.

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

Timeline of an action figure hunt:
March 2017: Target.com lists a 12-inch Justice League Action Booster Gold action figure. The price is $9.99, though the figure is listed as out of stock and cannot be ordered.
June 2017: Target.com de-lists the figure. It hasn't been seen in stores and is presumed cancelled.
December 2017: The figure appears on eBay.com, proving it exists. The listing closes over $100 for what appears to be an ultra-rare action figure.
January 2018: The figure appears on Amazon.com, finally making it available to the masses. List price starts at $13. At last check, it was selling only from second-hand sellers with prices in the neighborhood of $25.
Now: The figure has been spotted (and purchased) in Target stores in Dallas, TX and Philadelphia, PA. The purchase price is $9.99.
It took a year, but it looks like Booster Gold is finally available in a Target near you. (It's still unavailable from Target.com, which acts like it has never heard of any such thing.) You're running out of excuses not to have this beauty!
Thanks to all Booster boosters who have reported finding the figure in their local stores. You guys are so good, maybe you can turn up one of those DC Icons JLI Blue and Gold two-packs DC Collectibles teased us with last year.

It's looking like a golden year for Booster boosters. In addition to our hero co-starring in Action Comics — another issue will be out this week! — we've also gotten several collectible figures.
First came the Previews Exclusive Funko Pop Blue Beetle and Booster Gold two-pack (sold in both standard and metallic variants). Those should now be available at your Local Comic Shop.
Then the much-discussed 12-inch Justice League Action arrived at Amazon.com. (Order yours today!)
But that's not all! In addition to these other fine collectibles, Wiz Kids Games' released Heroclix Booster Golden Organized Play prize support late last month. That's right, there are new Booster Gold themed Heroclix, including Skeets!
Booster is a reuse of the same sculpt from last year's World's Finest set. However, this is the first standalone Skeets sculpt in the Heroclix line (which has been making DC characters since 2002).
Booster and Skeets are officially available only through tournament play at authorized specialty shops, but you can probably find them for resale on eBay and other secondary markets.
I hope you all have room in your collections for all the good stuff coming our way!
