An unusual case, but Jon Burton found higher quality renders of most of the Sonic R courses.

A picture of some intact Bollycao stickers (in their original form)...

Posted Image


Edit: Just one more detail... there were 2 sets of Bollycao Sega stickers, the first set composed by 60 Stickers and the second set composed of 50 more stickers... 110 in total... the campaign started in 1992... the Sonic detachables with the letters of the alphabet are just included in the second set ... the stickers of the first set didn't have any detachable Sonic sticker ... that's the difference between the two sets...

Oh yeah I forgot to raise this - someone needs to chase up the actual images (as opposed to videos of images).

These were used in a few magazines at the time (and maybe even a manual or two).

I wish I had a way of unsee things. Sonic looks withered and his mouth looks like it's from a turtle, too. Thank god it's rare.

I can't read Chinese, but the Chrome dictionary addon I have is able to recognize hanzi, so I ran that through it. It seems to read "complete preservation special issue 4." Make of that what you will.

Maybe I'll just hijack this topic and post weird things in it:

Clube Sega flyers (Portugal) ... they were sent to members by mail ... with a letter "written by Sonic" (it was what they wanted us to believe :)/>/> ) ... and this magazine ... entirely free...

Edit: "Páscoa 93 = Easter 93" (hence the ''bunny'' Sonic)

I dunno whether or not these would be considered rare, but I've always thought the cover art on the Japanese Sonic X DVDs was pretty sweet:

Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image

(these are my favorites)

Only problem is that these pics here are about the highest res they're available in. This may not be so bad; they look good enough on their own, but it's not enough for someone like me. I'd kill for hi-res scans of all 13 volumes, but as these DVDs have been out of print for years now, that's a very thin possibility. I guess the fact that there's no hi-res scans of them around is what classifies them as "rare"? 15th anniversary deluxe DVD box set pretty please

Only good equivalent right now is scans of French DVDs up on Cinema Passion (look up "Sonic" there) which do have some of this art, but not all of it. I hate that dub DVDs opted for random stock artwork instead.

I think the FuniMation box sets used this art as well. I know Volume 13's art was used at least.

The cover artworks were used for the DVD menus as well. Not that their resolution is much better, but still. I've uploaded all Japanese DVD menus here:

I think I have posted in this thread before, but I am looking for a specific piece of Sonic art that was used as a birthday card in I want to say Portuguese. The kicker? It used "Hidden Palace Zone" from Sonic 2 as the background. Sonic was running towards Redz. The text was white and was located in the top center. I saw it on here in some old merchandise topic.

I've actually got a few of these but never got around to finishing the set. Should probably see if I can do that some day.

Yeah, that's pretty cool! Volumes 11-13 are missing, though. I do own DVD rips of all 13 volumes, but I thought I'd mention this.

You gotta try!! I'm one of the Sonic X superfans and I've been recently trying to locate and preserve as much of it as possible (including finding hi-res promotional key art and hunting down related CD releases using money from my own pockets), but the older something is, the harder it is to find stuff of it these days. The show turns 15 years old in April, and I've never felt so old before in my life.
