What We Learned at Wondercon 2024

Over the weekend, The Blot wrote me to say

McFarlane Toys announced at WonderCon there’s a new Booster Gold 7” DC Multiverse action figure coming next year!!!

Cool, I thought. But then I looked at the email's attachment and saw this:

Disclaimer: this isn't The Blot's photo but the image I found at Toyark.com when I googled to confirm this wasn't an early April Fools.

A New 52 Booster Gold? An overly-complicated design that looked bad in 2D comics and looks even worse on a small 3D action figure? Who wants that? I certainly don't, and if you tell me that you do I'm going to give you a classic Gary Coleman side-eye gif.

McFarlane gave us the Blue and Gold set with Booster's modern Mark I.v2 costume back in 2022, and a Waverider Booster in 2023. While I'd love more Booster Gold figures, why can't we get the classic Mark I high-collar costume? Or, if you want to get obscure, how about a figure with the Conglomerate leather jacket? (Please!)

The Blot followed up with this message:

A quick update. Turns out the dates in the picture are wrong. The new Booster Gold figure is coming out in 2024!

That would be great news... if I wanted a New 52 Booster Gold figure. I don't. But if your name is Jim Lee and you're eager to get your hands on a New 52 Booster Gold action figure, 2024 is your year!

Thanks for the news, Blot.
