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!

Booster boosters may remember that DC Collectibles included our hero in the 2015 Justice League Tarot Deck. Booster was the "6 of Wands" with the wands represented by cameras.
What you may not know is that the artist of the deck, Sara Richard, is selling the original art. The 6" by 11" mixed media illustration of Booster Gold is priced at $400. Cheap!
(Richard is also selling the preliminary sketch for the same piece for just $40. Cheaper!)
Perhaps this is the perfect gift for the Booster Gold fan in your life this holiday season, hmm?

Way back in February, The Blot alerted us that Kidrobot was planning to release a "Booster Gold" Dunny keychain. Well, The Blot has reported back to say that they're now available, just in time for Christmas shopping.
In time for the new Justice League movie, Kidrobot and DC Comics have teamed up again to shrink the Dunny down to small crime fighting size. Featuring all of the DC Universe's most iconic heroes and clocking in at 1.5" tall, these DC Dunnys are ready to stop villains in their tracks. Coming with a lobster clasp on a detachable ring, this Justice League adds a heroic accent to backpacks, purses, keys and zippers. Nab them all today and keep the villains of the DC universe at bay!
The entire lineup of 14 figures includes Modern Batman, Classic "New Look" Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Flash, Cyborg, Green Arrow, Hal Jordan, Guy Gardner, Blue Beetle (Jaime), Animal Man, and Zatanna.
Kidrobot is selling them for $5.99 each, but sadly, they are packaged in "blind boxes," meaning you can't know which one you're going to get when you order just one. To be sure you get a Booster Gold, you'll have to order a whole display of 24 blind boxes. Or, you know, go to eBay.

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?

Last year, DC Collectibles promised us a two-pack of Blue Beetle and Booster Gold action figures. That set was canceled because of lack of demand. I doubt this latest Blue and Gold two-pack will suffer a similar fate.
Introducing the Previews Exclusive Funko Pop! Blue Beetle and Booster Gold vinyl figure two-pack!
The DC Universe's most hilarious crime-fighting duo comes to three dimensions with these PREVIEWS Exclusive Funko Pop! two-packs!
Blue Beetle and Booster Gold stand about 3 1/4" tall and come in a collector friendly window box for display. Recreate the adventures of two of the Justice League International's greatest heroes with these PX Pop! figures!
Just last week, I was having a discussion with Randy, the owner of my Local Comic Shop about the incredible popularity of Funko Pop! figures. I admitted that I don't get the appeal of the "superdeformed" vinyl statuettes that were taking up an entire wall in his store. Randy suggested that I was just old. His argument didn't win me over, but the fact that this Booster Gold Funko Pop! figure has a collar might.
The two-packs will come in two different finishes, standard and metallic. Either version has a suggested retail price of $22.99 and a targeted arrival date of December 20, 2017.
Since these are Previews Exclusives, be sure to tell your Local Comic Shop that you want one (or two) well in advance. I already sent my email to Randy.
