The Future Is Written in Chalk

Speaking of the Jurassic League....

Booster booster The Blot of TheBlotSays.com has his finger on the pulse of the world of collectibles and writes us with breathless anticipation:

Have you heard about the upcoming DC HeroClix series, Masters of Time!?! There’s gotta be a Booster figure in the set right? They haven’t unveiled the whole line up yet, but have shown a few figures. The series will include Rip Hunter and his chalk board!!! That’s basically a Booster Gold release right?

I cannot deny that's certainly a Dan Jurgens' Booster Gold Volume 2-era Rip Hunter drawing come to (still) life.

Rip is just one of the 15 pre-release pieces pictured at shop.wizkids.com/collections/masters-of-time, which says the set is scheduled for a 3rd quarter 2024 release, meaning we won't get a full list of figures probably until sometime closer to July and September. When released, the full set is advertised to contain

  • 16 Common Figures
  • 15 Uncommon Figures
  • 12 Rare Figures (and 3 Rare Primes!)
  • 13 Super Rare Figures (and 2 Super Rare Primes!)
  • 7 Chase Figures
  • 1 Ultra-Chase Figure
  • 10 Colossal-Sized Jurassic Figures (exclusively in Jurassic Boosters!)

As you can see, the Jurassic League "colossal" figures are a central point of this "Masters of Time" set. Since we now know Booster will be crossing over with the Jurassic League in May (and Rip and Booster are family Time Masters), could a Booster Gold figure be in the set? We'll have to keep an eye out.

Thanks, Blot!

Power Failure

A thunderstorm came through my town and knocked out our power just as I was composing today's post at about 1AM. Without wifi, that's where it'll stay. Power company estimates a fix won't be in until nearly dawn, so I'm going to bed, and this is all the post you're going to get, Booster boosters.

While I'm sitting in the dark, may I suggest you go read some other site instead. I hear from The Blot that BleedingCool.com is hinting that Booster might have a bigger role to play after Dark Crisis is over. And Rob Snow says that Booster is in the newly published The DC Book of Lists, available for Kindle download right now at Amazon.com.

Or go outside and throw a ball for your dog. Not everything in the world is about comic books, you know.

Gold with Envy

It's 3:46 in the morning, and I need to get to sleep, but I can't go to bed until I come up with something to post for you fine Booster boosters. Fortunately for everyone, The Blot has bailed me out with this recent very Boosterrific tweet:

Got some new acrylic risers and redesigned by #BoosterGold display. For the most part you can see things better but I'm not in love with how it turned out. I think I need to move the 6

I don't think you need to *move* the 6-inchers, Blot. I think you just need to get some more.

Thanks for the save. If you haven't seen his action figure designer art toy blog, check it out at theblotsays.com.

UPDATE 2022-04-29 3:30PM: As you've probably read elsewhere by now, legendary artist Neal Adams has died. He never drew Booster Gold in a comic book, and now he never will. But we can see what Booster would have looked like in his distinctive style thanks to a piece Blot commissioned from Adams and shared with us in 2014.

Booster Gold by Neal Adams for The Blot

Thanks for all the good comics, Neal.

Big Jon

For those of you who do not follow Boosterrific on Twitter, you need to see this:

It's 23
It's 23

Isn't that impressive? And nearly two feet tall! (Blot says 1/4 scale, but Booster is 6' 5" tall. So it's really closer to 1/3 scale.)

As Blot makes clear, this is technically an unauthorized bootleg statue, and it will not be available on the open market. Boosterrific as this piece is, it is not something the average Booster booster is likely to get our hands on. Drat!

But we can always look.

Thanks for sharing, Blot!

That'll Leave a Mark

Booster booster Blot has found a tattoo that is the definition of "Boosterrific." Click the image to be taken to the video on Instagram.com.

The newest addition to my sleeve. #boostergold Probably about 84% of my arm complete. Another amazing piece by @gchavianotattoo https://www.instagram.com/p/CQryIDADM6h/

Amazing work. And kudos to Eric Schwarz or anyone else who is a committed enough Booster Gold fan to have our hero tattooed on their body. That's really wearing your heart on your sleeve!

You boosters keep sending me the best links. Thanks, Blot!
