They actually made different variations of that folder as well as note book.

I have a folder with Sonic & Tails in GHZ and MBZ and a note book with them in SYZ. Sadly, I don't have a camera (not even in my mobile) at the moment.

Okay if I can't encourage you to document Japanese stationary, how about a genuine British A4 Sonic binder???

I feel like I've seen this Sonic artwork before.

p.s. I don't know what "M&P Design Group" is - Google's returning photos of firearms and offices.

Art for the "blaster" version of Poh-Bee exists: http://info.sonicret...ep071993scd.jpg

I question the validity of this -- the blast itself appears to just be an upscaled sprite, so who's to say they didn't also composite the stinger for some reason?


The blaster Poh-Bee also appears in this Sonic CD promo leaflet. So it definitely originates from Sega

I like how both Sonic and Bowie from Shining Force are adjusting their gloves in that leafet's cover :v:

Recently I have acquired an old 1993 Japanese magazine called Famicom Tsushin that features some coverage for Sonic CD! It has a mini guide book for playing the game with hand drawn level maps of Palmtree Panic, really nice and very 90s typography and graphic design, some information about the game, and the best of all a very rare and hard to find post card! The post card is very rare lost art that I've spent nearly a decade trying to find in good quality and I am so happy that I have finally found it and was able to scan it in good quality.

This rare artwork was featured in a lot of old magazines and flyers back during Sonic CD's development but was always either very small, cropped, or had screenshots and text blocking it. It was always so hard to find this picture and I never thought that I would ever locate it until now. What's interesting too is that the post card is actually a scratch and sniff post card! If you scratch and sniff Amy's bangs she smells like citrus. :) I have already scanned all of the pages that feature Sonic CD but I am still in the process of cleaning up the scans but I figured that I would show this post card early first because I'm just too excited not to lol. I am very happy to present to everyone this once lost artwork that is finally being seen in good quality for the first time!

Wow, you're bringing me back! I got those for my birthday when I was like 7 years old!! They're not shoes, but slippers btw. I looked and found this pic of them.

I may still have them underneath my bed as I type, all worn out and filthy from ages and ages ago.... Man, where does the time go.

As a kid at school I covered my books with some Sonic styled contact paper. This was one of the bits of art on it, along with something very Spinball cover esque.

Wasn't the side artwork used in an actual real life pinball a redemption game as well?

EDIT: Nope, not the same.

EDIT 2: Hey, I never knew that SEGA had used the "Sonic looking" artwork in Europe:

Looks a bit weird without noodle arms, though.
