 Keeper of the Shrine

Monday, September 18, 2017

Drake McWhorter (aka @TrailerDrake) recently posted his pop culture "shrines" on Twitter. Here's his space devoted to BFFs Booster Gold and Blue Beetle.

TrailerDrake Blue and Gold shrine

Personally, I keep all my Booster action figures and knickknacks on their own bookshelf. Actually, if I count the ones still in their original packaging, two bookshelves in two different rooms. And that's not counting the comics. The Booster-dedicated short boxes (BG volumes 1 & 2 and 52) are on a third bookshelf. Come to think of it, Booster takes up a lot of room in my house.

Do any other Booster boosters devote space in their life to Booster Gold?

 Stick a Pin in It

Wednesday, August 2, 2017

The Blot got in touch recently to alert me to these beauties, soon to be available from Fansets line of Justice League pins:

Fansets Booster Gold pins

That's "Classic" MicroJustice Booster Gold on the left, and "New 52" MicroJustice Booster Gold on the right. (Those are Fansets' names, not mine. I'm well aware that neither of those are the New 52 costume. Maybe Fansets is breaking the news that Rebirth Booster Gold has totally abandoned his terrible New 52 costume. If so, Hooray!)

Thanks for the notification, Blot. I assure you that there will be a new pin on my leather jacket come this fall.

 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!

 Change We Can Believe In

Monday, May 15, 2017

In March, we learned that DC Collectibles doesn't think there's a market for Booster Gold and Blue Beetle figures.

George Pooley wants to prove them wrong.

George has created an online petition with the goal of convincing DC to change their minds and give us the figures we wanted so badly. He's looking for a minimum of 100 signatures. Will you be one of them?

Add your name at Change.org.

 Lego My Ego

Wednesday, March 15, 2017

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.

LEGO Booster Gold

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?
