Way back in February, The Blot alerted us that Kidrobot was planning to release a "Booster Gold" Dunny keychain. Well, The Blot has reported back to say that they're now available, just in time for Christmas shopping.
In time for the new Justice League movie, Kidrobot and DC Comics have teamed up again to shrink the Dunny down to small crime fighting size. Featuring all of the DC Universe's most iconic heroes and clocking in at 1.5" tall, these DC Dunnys are ready to stop villains in their tracks. Coming with a lobster clasp on a detachable ring, this Justice League adds a heroic accent to backpacks, purses, keys and zippers. Nab them all today and keep the villains of the DC universe at bay!
The entire lineup of 14 figures includes Modern Batman, Classic "New Look" Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Flash, Cyborg, Green Arrow, Hal Jordan, Guy Gardner, Blue Beetle (Jaime), Animal Man, and Zatanna.
Kidrobot is selling them for $5.99 each, but sadly, they are packaged in "blind boxes," meaning you can't know which one you're going to get when you order just one. To be sure you get a Booster Gold, you'll have to order a whole display of 24 blind boxes. Or, you know, go to eBay.

If you thought that a mini Thomas the Tank Engine toy was the strangest Booster Gold-related thing we'd see in 2017, you might be right. That's pretty strange.
But yesterday, Booster booster The Blot announced on his blog that he's found something else plenty unusual: a 1.5-inch Booster Gold-themed Dunny keychain.
I can hear some of you asking "What is a Dunny?" (I asked it myself.) To quote from the manufacturer's website, KidRobot.com:
A DUNNY is a type of vinyl designer art toy created by Paul Budnitz and Tristan Eaton, and produced by Kidrobot since 2004. The toy is based on a rabbit figure with distinctive tubular ears. The origin of the name Dunny came from a combination of street slang and one of the early "Devil Bunny" prototypes.
I have no idea how that concept ties in with the DC Universe, but I think the same thing about that Thomas & Friends toy. All I need to know is where I can buy them (which, frankly, probably answers my question). Lucky for us, the Blot has a lead on that information at TheBlotSays.com.
Thanks for bringing this to our attention, Blot. I wonder what bizarre Booster Gold item we'll get next?

Back in July, I discovered a Booster Gold customized vinyl figure called a Mighty Mugg. Turns out that a Mighty Mugg is only one type of customizable vinyl figure. Apparently, there are similar figures called Dunnys. They are like Mighty Muggs, but with ears.
The above 3" Blue and Gold figures above were customized by an artist named Nikejerk. There's much more information about the pair of figures in Nikejerk's Flickr.com account. It is beginning to look like wherever there are customizable vinyl figures, someone is making a Booster Gold figure. That's a thought guaranteed to put a smile on your face.
