Today is New Comic Day, but you won't find Booster Gold in any of today's releases at your Local Comic Shop. If you want Booster, consider rectifying that buy winning this eBay auction for a slabbed CGC 9.8 copy of Booster Gold #1 signed by Dan Jurgens. What a bargain at only $375!
If you're looking for something a little cheaper, you'll find the Eaglemoss DC Chess Collection piece number 61: White Pawn Booster Gold elsewhere on eBay.com. It can be yours for as little as $8.00 (plus shipping)!
A chess piece is hardly an action figure, but perhaps it will tide you over until that DC Icons Blue Beetle and Booster Gold two-pack arrives. (Remember those?) Announced at Comic Con International in July, it won't be available until June 29, 2017! And unlike the chess piece, the figures will have a suggested retail price of $55.00.
So maybe you shouldn't buy those eBay items. If you save $2 a week between now and June, you'll easily be able to buy the greatest action figures ever made and still have enough left over for a nice lunch.

Did you get the Eaglemoss Booster Gold figure but feel that it was missing something important? Ciro Di Lella did, so he did something about it. He created his own Skeets.
Di Lella has a lot of experience creating custom models. You can find more of his work (as Ciro1984) at DeviantArt.com.

If you're paying attention, you may soon start seeing Eaglemoss' "white pawn" Booster Gold (and accompanying magazine) appearing in your Local Comic Shop.
Booster is figure 61 in the set. (Pieces 1 through 32 were a complete Batman-themed chess set.) He's been available for a few months internationally, but he'll be arriving in American stores any day now, if not already. (You can already find it for under $20 on eBay.com.)
This New 52 Booster should make a nice companion to the classic Booster Eaglemoss released a few years ago. How long do we have to wait for an Eaglemoss Skeets?

Frequent Boosterrific.com commenter Eyz recently reviewed the Eaglemoss Booster Gold figurine on his blog G33k Life. (Most of you probably know Eyz from his Heroes! parody comic strips.) The statuette was produced in September 2009 as the 20th in a series of licensed DC Comics characters especially for the European market. Eyz was kind enough to share some information about the accompanying DC Super Hero Figure Collectible Magazine for inclusion on Boosterrific.com:
"The DC magazines that come with the figurines all use the same template, that is 20 pages in full colors of bio and various information. Basically, it's sort of what you'd find on Wikipedia but only illustrated by various scans. (Well, more like Boosterrific itself in that regards!)"
"Then there's a 3 pages spread 'Classic Storylines' narrating important moments of the character. For Booster it concerns the original arc against the 100 and then 52!"
"After that, there are 3 pages on allies & enemies -- Max, Ted Kord, Jaime, Rip Hunter, etc. -- with pictures and all as well. This is followed by a double page spread on his costume and powers."
"The last two pages are the same for all figurines/characters. It's the 'DC Comics Timeline', narrating the whole DC Universe from the creation of the universe, medieval times with Etrigan, the old west, etc. [The timeline section] in Booster's magazine is 'Part 11: 10,000 to 9,000 Years ago'."
Big thanks to Eyz for the details.
