I don't need to be an AFOL to recognize that Duo Le Pin's "Super Heroes" line is an unlicensed LEGO knockoff. Therefore, no Booster booster should be too excited about item DLP9072-19, DLP's take on Booster Gold, complete with Legion Flight Ring... and his motorcycle?
Ok, you can be a little excited. Booster Gold toys — even bootleg ones — are always cool. (Hey, if LEGO isn't going to make us a legitimate Booster Gold minifig, we've got to play with something.)
Thanks to The Blot for calling this out on Twitter.

It was just back in March that I spotlighted a different custom LEGO-compatible minifig.
There must be a growing demand for block versions of our hero in the wake of the LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham video game and The LEGO Batman Movie. Are you paying attention, LEGO?

No, seriously, I really need these two as actual LEGO minifigs.
This piece was created by the South African/German artists Basstudio on DeviantArt.com. Great characters know no boundaries!

Despite appearing in LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham, Booster Gold has never had his own LEGO minifig in real life. Forrester Simon is looking to change that with an Indiegogo campaign.
This unofficial minifig is being custom printed in limited quantity and will sell for $40 each. That may seem steep for 1-and-a-half inches of plastic, but can you really put a price tag on solid gold?

Both fine art and LEGO lovers have united in praise of the work of artist Nathan Sawaya. When he joined forces with DC Comics to create his "The Art of the Brick: DC Comics" exhibitions, we knew we would see some cool stuff. How little did we realize just how cool it would be.
Yes, that's Booster Gold built entirely out of LEGO bricks. Booster is just one of many, many DC Comics figures, covers, and other inspired pieces (including a life-sized Batmobile) now on exhibition at the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney, Australia.
How great is it that Booster Gold, a former janitor inspired by a museum exhibition of heroes to travel back in time to become a hero himself, now has his own statue in a museum display of heroes? That's Boosterrific!
The exhibition runs through April in Sydney before moving on to the next leg of its worldwide tour (wherever that might be). So if you happen to be in Sydney before May, drop in and say hello to our favorite hero. Otherwise, cross your fingers. Booster Gold may be coming to a museum near you.
Thanks to The Blot and iron_paw for bringing this amazing sculpture to our attention.
