 Missing the Target

Friday, June 30, 2017

Almost exactly three months ago, I pointed out that Target.com had a listing for a 12-inch Booster Gold figure and urged everyone to keep their fingers crossed that we would one day have such a fine toy. It doesn't look like that was enough.

The product has disappeared entirely from their online stores.

product not available we're sorry! this page is currently unavailable. please try again later.

The figure was part of the 12" Justice League Action figures (presumably made by Mattel, which also released the 12-inch Batman Unlimited line in the same style and scale). You can find plenty of JLAction Supermans, Batmans, Flashes, and Jokers on eBay, but there's zero evidence that Booster Gold was released in any quantities anywhere. Neither was a Booster Gold figure was included in the "Justice League Action Mighty Minis" inaugural line released earlier this year.

It's starting to feel like there's some sort of conspiracy against Booster Gold. You'll recall that DC Collectibles quietly cancelled their own announced Booster Gold/Blue Beetle figures earlier this year. And, of course, there's his continued absence from comics.

It's enough to make a fan believe that someone has it out for our hero.

 Recent Boosterrific Updates

Monday, April 3, 2017

Last week was a busy one here at Boosterrific.com. In addition to the Booster Gold/The Flintstones Special, I also made these additions to the site:

1. The house advertisements section has been updated to include the two-page Hanna-Barbera ads that appeared in DC books for the last two weeks in March.

2. Patrick Stump and Allan Ross gave us a full cover scan for the 2007 Adventures with the DC Super Heroes Geppi's Entertainment Museum variant that shows Booster Gold on the back cover.

3. The Blot sent this image of the Booster Gold Thomas & Friends toy as seen for sale at his local Wal-Mart to prove that this bizarre thing is now available for purchase.

 No Time for Fools

Friday, March 31, 2017

For this year, because the "holiday" falls on a Saturday, I will be having no April Fools Day post. That's the bad news. Yes, I'm disappointed, too. But I needed to say that so I could move on to today's better news.

So there will be no Blue and Gold figures from DC Collectibles. And we have no idea when we'll see that 12-inch Target Booster Gold. But there is at least one Booster Gold figure coming out later this year.

Booster Gold Troll Doll

Kids of all ages will love the "Boostroll Gold" Troll Doll, part of DC Super Friends crossover with the Trolls movie franchise. According to Twitter, these will be in stores by Christmas.

Ever since the Thomas & Friends/Booster Gold figure was revealed in February, I've expected we'd see more crossovers between DC and other brands, but who could have predicted this? What's next? The Booster Gold Pet Rock? Coming soon through a store window near you.

 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.

 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?
