You Got Booster Gold in My Tank Engine

Hold on to your cabooses, Booster boosters, but there's about to be a Booster Gold-themed toy train.

That's the Thomas the Tank Engine character Dash dressed as Booster Gold, and he's just one of many new character mash-ups coming soon to a retailer near you, according to Matthew Mueller at ComicBook.com

If you've got a young child, you might already be familiar with the Thomas & Friends Minis line of toys by Fisher-Price. There have been DC Comics variants of these toys for a couple of years, but Booster Gold is a new twist.

(I have only one complaint about this development. In TtTE mythology, Dash has a twin brother named Bash. So why isn't there a Blue Beetle-themed Bash to go with my Booster Gold Dash, Fisher-Price? #MissedOpportunity)

Either April Fool's Day has come early this year, or you'll be able to buy "Dash as Booster Gold" later this month.

Kids, Buy Booster Flakes!

While enjoying the holiday, Morgenstern noted that while Booster Gold didn't make the roster of Fisher Price's DC Super Friends line of toys, he did make it into their cartoon. At least their cartoon billboards.

This 2010 cartoon, "The Joker's Plahouse," re-imagining the classic 1970s Super Friends was released with the Fisher-Price® Imaginext™ DC SUPER FRIENDS™ toy line. Despite being a toy giveaway, the quality is surprisingly high.

Fortunately for those of us who aren't buying toys for 3-year-olds, Fisher Price has uploaded the cartoon to their YouTube account. You can watch the whole cartoon here. To see Booster, you can jump to 4:15 of the above linked video. However, but those of you who are a bit more nostalgic -- or big fans of Ted Knight impersonators -- may want to watch it all from the beginning. It's mmmm... good.
