Not exactly the right place, but it is art, and seeing as we're a major Sonic community, some of you may be VERY interested. I stumbled upon this whilst browsing;

<a href="http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/SONIC-3-PROMOTIONAL-SEGA-SHOP-DISPLAY-ULTRA-RARE-/270778622063?pt=UK_VideoGames_Merchandise_RL&hash=item3f0ba9e06f" target="_blank">http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/SONIC-3-PROMOTIONAL-...=item3f0ba9e06f</a>

Someone ought to get their hands on that. I would but I'd have nowhere to put it. How awesome.

I've had a Sonic & Knuckles shop display since I stole it from Debenham's in 1994.

I applaud your ingenuity, sir. =P I'd not have been able to pull a heist off like that at that age!

I got my 20th Anniversary Joypolis figure today. He much taller and heavier than I imagined, and the sculpt is fantastic. You can see some seams here and there, but nothing major and he's really brilliant, even more so considering he's just supposed to be a prize from a machine. The only real problem is his mouth, which is just that strange upper lip making him look worried or something, like with the S4 art. I paid £66 including p&p, and was lucky enough to avoid all in extra taxes and charges.

Decided to take some comparison shots of the Joypolis figure and the MadCatz charger. The Joypolis one is far superior. He's made out of matt, solid plastic while the MatCatz one is soft, rubbery, horribly shiny and very dark. There are also sculpt problems with the MadCatz one- a very flat head, his lower centre spine is misaligned and he has Riders style arms and legs (they get really thick toward his wrists/ankles).

Everything about this Image is what I currently want at the moment. It's just me being paranoid about blowing my money before my final year of University, and moving out to live on my own for the first time.

The Joyopolis Statue is £66. I've been very interested in buying that, considering I have the 10th Anniversary SA2 with Japan Seal / Sticker on it still. As well as the 15th anniversary statue with certificate.
The Charger I can get from Amazon.com and import it to the UK. However, that comes to £35. It would be practical for me though, as I do need Wii Chargeable batteries...
That Sonic CD. Complete. They just don't seem to sell for less than £20 on eBay and I really want a Japanese / European version for the Soundtrack too! (To rip to say, my Xbox or whatnot)

Something not on that image though would be the Jazware Sonic 10" 12 Points of Articulation Figurine. I have the Metal Sonic one, and would love the corresponding / same size / poseable Sonic version of it to go with my Metal Sonic. But this is £25 too, or at least doesn't get cheaper than that considering it's imported from the US on eBay.

EDIT:

Also, the display in the original post sold for £60. Pretty impressive.

I'm pretty sure by any collector's standards of any memorabilia that that is a stupidly expensive.

Heck, I'm pretty sure Star Wars collectors of say, original mint light-sabers or whatever gets their motor running, would look at that statue and price and think "what." I certainly am, and I'm no Star Wars collector nor fan.

I just don't get it. I mean, sure its collection and rarity ect. but, ehhh. I'll stick to that Joyopolis one thanks.

Has there been any consensus on this Japanese McDonalds Eggman toy variant? I've searched on eBay for a number of years now hoping to come across one but no such luck.

Do we know if it was in fact mass-produced for McDonalds in Japan or if it was just a prototype before they switched to the Milton Knight American design?

I know the shirt isn't anything new, but I found it at Target for like, $9.99 today. Main reason I'm posting was cause of the pajama shorts. I found them in the stock room at the Kmart I work at, so I dunno if they're actually out yet, but I was surprised when I saw them so I just grabbed them and bought em. You can never have too much Classic Sonic merch.

I keep all my Sonic merchandise as close to mint as I can. I've had this pinball machine for years.

Now I didn't buy this, but I did see it in WHSmiths:

Apologies for the blurry second picture. I wasn't gonna buy it for £9 and at that point Security had already heard the camera click noise before that and got suspicious.

Also for other UK goers, there's 20th Anniversary 'School bags' in Wilkos. £15 and really child / school like. Didn't buy that either, but I may get pictures the next I'm in one.

I've never seen Knuckles in that pose before. Weird.

Y'know, I also thought that. Odd eh? Possible Generations or Rivals?

I'm inclined to assume it's from one of the Olympics games. It seems like one of those "Look to the cheering crowds and wave" type poses. I'm going to take a look around for it but I don't think I've ever seen it.

EDIT: Apparently not. Huh.

Sonic merchandise is something I have far too much of. There's loads of it all over my house, but I'll try and gather up some of the cooler/more unusual items to share with you over the weekend if I get time.

For now though, Narstyle's post just reminded me of something I picked up a couple of weeks ago:

Sorry these are a bit blurry, I'll try and get a clearer picture if anyone's interested (I'm having trouble getting a clear shot for some reason).

I've never seen that Sonic picture before, which is the part of the reason why I purchased the notebook to be honest ;P
