That was the closest American Sonic ever got to looking good, although his spikes are a little off and idk what his right hand is trying to do.

Got this at Anime Expo last week. Really cool item, a slide puzzle/bank/can. Love it when I see some classic Sonic merch. Only 2 bucks and brand new too, I couldn't resist.

I don't really collect Sonic much any more, but these are the few items I've gotten in last year or so.

-Sonic Lost World tote bag

- Metal Sonic Postcards and Keychain

- Sonic and Amy Pinched! Keychains

- Sonic Adventure Phone Pouch

- Sonic Lost World clear file

- Jet Set/Grind Radio promotional video for the press/ or it could be one of those JSR fruit machine videos.

- Project Diva EXTEND limited edition SEGA Store edition CD (There was also a phone card, sticker and a promo CD with music tracks from SEGA).

And the biggest thing is a Sonic Adventure Japanese store cut out they had around SA's launch there, it's as tall as me and is in relatively good condition for something that is 16 years old! It's a gorgeous set piece.

The Sonic Retro wiki has this category called "merchandise". It's pretty dire given that it contains virtually nothing from this 43-page topic.

So I've begun the laborious process of documenting Sonic merhandise. It's very early stages and I might not have the heart to finish the job (Sega Retro is my one true love these days), so I'm throwing this out here to see who bites. Essentially, all the stuff from this topic needs to go up on our wiki at some stage - it'll be a bit soul-crushing in some cases but you guys will know more about this subject than me. Photos and scans, official stuff only. Actual documentation and categorisation is up to you.

The idea is if someone on the internet is looking for something questionable like an official Sonic the Hedgehog pillow case, they'll know to look at Sonic Retro first. Borg etc. Join in - you all have accounts.

Sorry I'm super new to Retro but I do collect lots of promotional and bonus Sonic shit that I could add to the database if need be.

Posting this here since there seemed to be some slight interest in the Ad thread:

Probably won't be able to contribute too much as far as high quality scans and photographs, but I have a fairly good knowledge of the origin of quite a bit of merch out there as a side effect of collecting things off and on since the 90's. No idea how to add anything to the wiki, though. I can be contacted via Steam (Zingela) to be pointed in the right direction, I suppose.
Seems like a good project, though. The only place I know of with a large catalog of items listed is Sonic Gear, but the guy running it loves to make all of the images tiny as hell and writes the most bizzare (and often times outright wrong) descriptions of the items.
