Looks like somebody else bought Booster, so this tale has ended for now.
In the vein of the “YOU SOLD BOOSTER?!" joke, maybe whoever he was originally sold to got so annoyed by him (or he ate too much or Bunzel Fever struck him), that they decided to sell him to somebody else and got more than what they paid for him. (Whoever originally sold Booster finds out about this and is irritated they didn’t get as much.
It was probably XR.)
I talked to Dad about Booster and he brought up that he’ll be pretty much impossible to fit in the house and that shipping is going to be ridiculous. I played around with the numbers on FedEx’s shipping calculator for large items, and, uh, yeah, the cheapest option was over $800. D: I could have messed something up, though.
So, Booster’s likely a no go, but I’m still mulling it over.
I wrote back and forth some with the person selling him, they say he’s between 100-150 pounds, definitely not as heavy as he looks, is made out of fiberglass, and doesn’t feel hollow, but probably is.
I showed my Mom Booster on Ebay and she was like “So, are you going to buy him?” and then was working on ideas of how to get him here and stuff so I have written the seller about shipping things because I am kind of on the other side of the country from California and can’t pick him up in person but oh my dear gravy I might save Booster after all.
Edit: OH MY GOSH THE SELLER JUST WROTE ME BACK AND WAS TELLING ME ABOUT THE DIFFERENT IDEAS THEY HAD FOR SHIPPING HIM
