Bust Is the Right Word

Remember that New 52 Booster Gold bust that DC Entertainment released last year that no one really likes because it's Booster's Nu52 costume?

If the $70 asking price was the only thing keeping it off your mantelpiece, DC is including that bust with several others in the "Buy One Get One 50% Off Sale" at shopdcentertainment.com. Yes, you have to spend $70 to save $35, but that's why DC made a New 52 Blue Beetle bust, too.

If you're interested, act fast. The sale ends tomorrow morning at 6AM EDT.

New Eyesores For Your Toy Shelf

New York Comic Con 2012 was this past weekend, and there was plenty to see. Too bad most of it was so ugly.

TheBlotSays.com has details on DC Collectible's upcoming Booster Gold mini-bust planned for a February 2012 release. The sculpting looks fantastic; too bad that when we finally get a Booster mini-bust from DC, I can't buy it. Giving $69.95 to DC Collectibles for that 6" bust would imply that I approved of -- or at least tolerated -- that DCnU atrocity of a costume. I don't, and I won't. (By the way, what's with that star? Is it Booster's newest logo? Ugh-ly.)

Even on a 1/48 scale model, that costume looks terrible. Obviously, DCnU Booster Gold will be in an upcoming set of Heroclix as well. Fortunately, he won't be alone. Also on display at NYCC 2012 was an appropriately Heroclix-scaled version of the late, lamented Blue Beetle's Bug airship. (Now that's something that I can endorse dropping some heavy cash on!) Fly on over to Russ Burlingame's article at ComicBook.com for more info and pics.

UPDATE 10/15/2012: Heroclix.com has a page up detailing the dial, powers, and abilities of the Booster Gold figure to be released in the Batman set next month. The Heroclix website calls this week "Blue & Gold Week," so pay attention this week for more official news about that Blue Beetle Bug seen at NYCC.

UPDATE 10/16/2012: Action Figure Insider has complete details about the bust, including the name of the sculptor, James Shoop.

All I Want for Christmas

Someone needs to tell DC Direct to get on the phone and hire sculptor Tony McDevitt to create us a licensed Blue and Gold statue.

Tony McDevitt custom sculpture of Blue Beetle and Booster Gold

The above 1/6.5 scale (about 12-inches tall) sculpture based on the cover to Booster Gold, Vol. 2, #7 was custom made for Jesse321 who proudly shows it off at statueforum.com. In the tread, Jesse321 hints that a Skeets will be added to the finished work, making it absolutely perfect.

More samples of McDevitt's amazing but sadly non-Booster Gold related work can be found at statueforum.com (where he posts as Troyboy) and on his own website, The McDevitt Studio.
