Over the weekend on Twitter, Booster booster The Blot Says called our attention to the upcoming line of Heroclix Justice League Unlimited. It's a good looking set based on one of the best cartoons ever made. (Hard to believe that the last episode was broadcast in 2006!)
Of course, I wouldn't have much to say about it if it wasn't for one figure in particular. Feast your eyes on this:
As you can see, that's just a computer rendering of the figure. Perhaps we'll get a picture of the actual product closer to its release in April. I'll keep you posted, because I'm sure you'll all want to get your own JLU Skeets.
In the meantime, if you want a better look at what else you'll find in the set, check out wizkids.com.

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!

Big-time Booster backer The Blot has pointed out that I somehow neglected to show off the new Booster Gold figure available this month. Oops. He's right. Somehow, I completely forgot that there was a new Heroclix figure in stores as of February 10.
WizKids Games latest set of DC Comics Heroclix, "World's Finest," focuses on some classic (read: pre-New 52) characters. Included in the set were new figures for Booster Gold and Blue Beetle! As you can see at this preview on Heroclix.com (which I had bookmarked and promptly forgot about in January, d'oh!), the pair are designed to work together as a team. World's Finest, indeed.
You can see the figure being unboxed in this official WizKids Games video.
Sorry, Blot and everyone else. I'll try to do better next time!

A poster named VictorySongs89 recently posted his improvements to the latest Booster Gold Heroclix figure on HCRealms.com.
Note that those sleeve stripes indicate that this is Booster's Infinite Crisis-era costume. Even without my beloved high-collar, that's a pretty significant improvement over that dumb New 52 costume.

Fire and Ice had cornered Lady Shiva beside the loading docks. With the rest of the Justice League International elsewhere hunting Deathstroke the Terminator, it was up to Bea and Tora to apprehend the most dangerous martial artist in the DC Universe. Two against one, and Shiva doesn't even have any metagene powers. It should be easy, right? Wrong.
Unbeknownst to our heroines, Lady Shiva was not alone. As Fire and Ice were discovering the truth behind Lady Shiva's hard-earned reputation, they were also being stalked by David Cain, another world-class assassin. Cain had Fire and Ice square in the sights of his sniper rifle. His finger tightened on the trigger, preparing to loose the bullet that would permanently snuff out Fire's green flame.
A streak of blue and gold unexpectedly sliced through the sky, a nigh-impenetrable force field intercepting the bullet's path! Blue Beetle and Booster Gold had arrived to save the day!
One well-aimed duo attack BB Gun and Booster Shot blast later, Lady Shiva was down for the count! Having felled Deathstroke single-handedly, Batman soon arrived out of the shadows to KO Cain. Assassins apprehended, the JLI could consider their latest adventure a rousing success!
The above adventure has never been published in a DC Comic. Nor was it an episode of Batman: The Brave and the Bold or even a piece of Internet fan-fiction. No, that's a summary of a 300-point game of WizKids' Heroclix that I played this past weekend.
Justice League #001 Batman, 75 points
Brave and the Bold #052 Blue Beetle and Booster Gold, 82 points
Brave and the Bold #050 Fire and Ice, 131 points
Armor Piercing on Fire and Ice, 10 points
Batman: Streets of Gotham #038 David Cain, 76 points
Batman: Streets of Gotham #040 Deathstroke, 147 points
Batman: Streets of Gotham #039 Lady Shiva, 67 points
Armor Piercing on David Cain, 10 points
The New 52 may have erased the classic JLI from existence, but so long as we don't forget our heroes, they'll always be having new adventures with us.
