 Don't Stick It Up Your Nose

Wednesday, November 8, 2017

Via Twitter, Benni Beard called my attention to this custom Booster Gold minifig (with Legion Flight Ring!) now available from bilbobaggins7919 on ebay.com:

Booster Gold minifig by Bilbobaggins7919 on ebay.com

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?

 Just in Time for Christmas

Friday, October 13, 2017

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!

Previews Exclusive Funko Pop! Blue Beetle and Booster Gold two-pacek

From Previewsworld.com:

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.

 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!
