DCUC: Booster Gold and Blue Beetle

November 22, 2010

Been a while. Sorry. But whatever. New toys means new posts, and here’s some guys I picked up ages ago at Armageddon Expo.

Booster Gold

Booster Gold (Classic Version)
Wave 7

A wonderfully cheap purchase, I had a choice between the classic version with the big collar or the current version who lacks the collar and has a slightly altered costume pattern. I chose the classic version mostly because it’s something different. The articulation on this figure is good, and I had no issues with any of his joints. The Skeets attachment is light, and does not impair the figure’s ability to stand in any way. Unfortunately, the Skeets plugs into a notch on Booster’s back, and the grip is just loose enough for Skeets to fall out quite often. It’s no trouble once posed, but a knock might make it drop.

Paint application is near faultless, and the use of clear yellow plastic for the goggles rather than the solid plastic on figures that were made with cost cuts in mind (Black Lightning…) is really great.

Booster’s a solid figure, and though he may not differ from the basic buck too substantially, he’s striking enough to not blend into the background. He comes packaged with the left leg of Collect and Connect Atom Smasher.
