 Bow Ties Are Cool

Monday, May 22, 2017

Sometimes cosplay isn't enough. Sometimes you have to bring your favorite heroes into your daily attire. That's what Drake McWhorter did.

Dapper Drake McWhorter

Drake, known as TrailerDrake on Twitter, is a big Booster booster (*ahem*), and now he wears his allegiance to Blue and Gold around his neck. If you like it, you can buy your own from dexlarprice on Etsy.com for a very reasonable price.

(Note these ties are quite different from the Etsy Blue and Gold bows I featured last year, though those were also by dexlarprice.)

I have Booster t-shirts and a hoodie. Has anyone else managed to incorporate Booster into their daily wardrobe? And, yes, visible tattoos count.

On a related note — we are talking about Booster Gold merchandise, right? — has everyone signed George Pooley's petition for those cancelled Blue and Gold DC Collectible figures at Change.org? Spread the word!

 This Day in History: Generation Deleted

Friday, May 12, 2017

On this day seven years ago, DC released Justice League: Generation Lost #1. It was a good story, proving that the "Bwah-Ha-Ha" era Justice League was more than just a bunch of clowns. They were a family who, even when the chips were down, always got the job done. (Eventually.)

The ending of this popular, year-long series promised us a new Justice League International only to see the events of "Flashpoint" erase this story from history one month later. (I still haven't forgiven Barry Allen.) The Justice League International of the New 52 technically fulfilled that promise, but that team had nothing to do with the one, true JLI.

Oh, well. We still have our back issues.

 Spectacular Advertisement

Monday, May 8, 2017

This week we thank Ken Harrison for providing a scan of this Justice League Spectacular house ad printed in DC's Impact Comics line in April 1992.

I found it while looking through a copy of The Black Hood #5 in a very, very large box of damaged comics. The issue belonged to Ken Harrison, creator of the comic Steviebear, who recently lost much of his comic collection in a house fire. His late father, Gordon, had been a collector since the dawn of the Silver Age, and many valuable comics were destroyed by fire and water.

It's a small consolation, but at least some part of his father's collection now lives on here at Boosterrific.com.

 Hit the Target

Monday, March 27, 2017

I received an email from J.D. calling my attention to this 12-inch ruler at Target.com.

Justice League Action 12-inch Booster Gold figure at Target

Says the website:

Prepare for epic fun with this exciting, new 12" figure that captures the unique look and sleek style of the Justice League Action team! Booster Gold features a bold, enhanced power suit, refreshed facial designs and iconic details. There is also added articulation at the knees for even more posing and battle action. The full collection includes Batman, Green Lantern, Booster Gold and Blue Beetle. You can collect them all for the ultimate DC combat play. Each figure sold separately. For ages 3 and up.

Sadly, this figure doesn't seem to be for sale yet. Some Googling indicates that this product has been online amid Target.com's listings of Justice League Action figures since mid-January, but I've not seen any press releases or other notification. Perhaps it will be a Target Exclusive in a future wave of releases? (Right now, only Superman, Batman, Joker, and Flash figures seem to be available.)

Keep you eyes peeled (and your fingers crossed), Booster boosters! I'm sure we all want a foot of Gold in our lives.

 Inaction Figures Are Good Too

Wednesday, March 8, 2017

So maybe we won't be getting any new "official" Booster Gold figures from DC any time soon, but real fans will always find their own solution to surrounding themselves with the heroes they love. For example, check out these crafty Justice League Action-inspired Booster Gold plushies by ElfGrove:

If Booster was a real person, he couldn't be any cuter than these!

You can find many more pictures of the plushie-making process on Instagram.com. Keep up the good work, ElfGroove!
