Ooshies for Our Hero

The Blot dropped by on Twitter to point out another unusual Booster Gold product, something called an "Ooshie."

@TheBlotSays via Twitter.com 2018-12-27

This is, apparently, the fourth wave of Ooshies pencil toppers, which means that I am very old and out of touch with... whatever is going on here.

Ooshies are generally sold via blind bags, meaning you never know what Ooshie you might be buying and might spend forever hunting one down to find out what they really look like. Luckily for me, I live in the Internet age. Voila!

That image comes via eBay, where you can bid on your very Booster Gold Ooshie here. What a wonderful world.

Thanks, Blot!

Booster Gold Fans Are the Best Fans

Let me take this opportunity to say that Boosterrific.com would not be Boosterrible if not for the support of Booster Gold fans worldwide. Thank you all. Today I will illustrate that in two ways:

First of all, big congratulations to Logan Peterson, who sent me this recent email:

I'm happy to say I just celebrated a long-awaited achievement. After years of scouring through longboxes and haggling with online vendors, I completed my Booster Gold floppy collection this weekend! With my procurement of Suicide Squad #13, I've officially collected a copy of every issue Michael Jon Carter has appeared in to date according to the database. :)

As I was double-checking my collection against the Boosterific listings to make sure I hadn't missed anything, I actually found that there were two Booster appearances not listed in the database. Check out Tales of the Teen Titans #89 and 90--Booster shows up briefly in all his caped glory.

How awesome is that? Answer: very awesome.

Logan was right. I did not have those Tales of the Teen Titans in the Boosterrific database. Those issues were reprints of New Teen Titans #29 and 30 which I had somehow overlooked... for 30 years. *sigh* But that oversight is now corrected. Thanks, Logan!

My second proof that Booster Gold fans are the best is our old friend The Blot, who via pointed me to this Instagram post by 23kidoo (aka Scott Swanson):

23kidooCreated this line of books for Hallmark and have gotten to work with some great folks in the process. @steve_willaredt on this, one of my favorites in the series. Being able to stray from core heroes and do @Bizarro đź‘Ť. A few Easter Eggs in there for fun #boostergold + each book comes with an itty bitty plush.

That book by Alex Boney and Steve Willaredt (in which tiny Booster Gold and friends appear to help Bizarro fix everything) is officially called the "itty bittys® Superman™ Bizarro™ Fixes Everything Stuffed Animal and Book Set." You can buy it on Hallmark.com for $19.95. It was released last year, and I may never have known about it without a shout out from The Blot. Thanks, Blot!

Keep all the tips coming, Booster boosters! If you ever find anything that you think Booster Gold fans should know about, you can always drop me a line through my convenient contact form. You're all the best.

Embarrassment of Riches

Something must have been in the air this week as I was emailed by two different people out of the blue who were proud to show off their recent Booster Gold sketch commissions!

First up is from our old friend The Blot, whose magnificent Booster Gold Sketchbook is bulging at the seams. His latest piece is by Invincible artist Ryan Ottley:

Our second piece is shared by Cort, who picked up this sketch commission from the very prolific Leonard Kirk at last years's Fan Expo Vancouver:

Those are some good looking sketches, guys. Thanks for sharing.

Lego-ish Booster Gold

I don't need to be an AFOL to recognize that Duo Le Pin's "Super Heroes" line is an unlicensed LEGO knockoff. Therefore, no Booster booster should be too excited about item DLP9072-19, DLP's take on Booster Gold, complete with Legion Flight Ring... and his motorcycle?

Duo Le Pin DLP9072-19 Super Heroes Booster Gold

Ok, you can be a little excited. Booster Gold toys — even bootleg ones — are always cool. (Hey, if LEGO isn't going to make us a legitimate Booster Gold minifig, we've got to play with something.)

Thanks to The Blot for calling this out on Twitter.

The Weirdest Thing

The Blot spotted this on eBay:

Custom Freeny MightyJaxx XXRAY figure on ebay.com

Obviously, this is a custom-painted Green Lantern figure. I'd never seen an XXRAY figure before, so I asked Blot for an explanation.

[Jason] Freeny is a toy artist/customizer who got pretty popular by cutting toys in half and then creating what he thinks their internal structure would look like (bones, organs, etc). Did it to both art figures (like KAWS) as well as pop culture toys like Super Mario or a rubber ducky. Now designer art toy companies produce his designed figures. They've got a whole line of DC Comics XXRAY figures featuring his dissected designs.

So now they make whole lines of "The half-Visible Man" collectible figures? What will they think of next?
