Personally, what I took away from it was mild bemusement that ActRaiser was, at one point, called Act-Lazer.
It's just a wrong romanization. "Raiser" and "Lazer" can be written the same way in Japanese.

Did we have this pose before? It's from the picture Black Squrriel posted yesterday.

It looks like an alternative standing pose to me.
Just wanted to chime in - lovely to see a higher-quality version of this image. Even though the viewable area is a little cropped compared to the other version we have, it's leagues clearer. Finally a clear look at that oddly-posed standing sprite! We've come a long, long way since the blurry, overly-filtered, MEGACOSM-watermarked version we had access to back in ye olden days of the internet. = )

I still love that Sonic Adventure ended up using that standing pose years later.

Heh, never noticed the similarity there. But you can see why they changed it in S1 - it looked stupid. In fact, it still looked pretty bad in SA1.

Oh yeah, it's ridiculous, I just really loved it when I realised the connection. Refuse to believe it's a coincidence :v:

You think standing there straight back, hands on hips would look any better?

No, but they did realise by the 3d games they can just have him rest his arms like a normal human :v:

It's even more obvious in the AutoDemo; he doesn't bend his knees as far down as he does in the final.

I know this isn't exactly much to look at, nor can we get anything out of it, but it shows a little tiny different layout design (or different location of the lamp post). "Sonic The Hedgehog" on Facebook posted this picture the other day:

And I just don't recognise that part of the level on-screen. It comes close to the first lamp post in Act 1, but the ingrave of the tile art doesn't match. It could be a prototype as I see no HUD either (or it could be a mock-up coming to think about it). Again, not a game changer here, but thought I'd point it out...

Those kids are doing the funniest poses man, I'm surprised you didn't pick up on the kid hovering his fingers over the controller pretending he's playing.

To be honest, the controller looks liked it's plugged into the box =P

You know that that's not an actual Sonic ad, right? :v:

At first I thought it was the end of Act 3 right before the boss, but that's not right. It could just be a mockup since there's no HUD.

That on-screen chunk is clearly chunk 02, so that's a good place to start... are you sure it's not just a really zoomed-in screenshot of this place from the start of act 3?

No seriously why are you all trying to find a proto screenshot in a photoshop of an ad with kids playing on a PC?
