Fun fact: this Coca-Cola Game Gear might pre-date the actual Coca-Cola Game Gear.

It does not look that bad, but his face format and stomach are kinda wierd.

If thats true, them Coca Cola made the best prizes ever(the handy colored yo-yo, the little aliens, etc).

That's a really great scan! Nice one Casshern!

Naoto Ohshima posted the original sketch (and two alternate versions) on Twitter last year: https://twitter.com/...246760682053632

The one where the car has a face is by Ohshima, but it's not entirely clear which one is by Yasushi Yamaguchi (Judy Totoya) and which is by Takumi Miyake.

I'd say that Yamaguchi's might be the second one:

Yamaguchi REALLY wanted the fox to be named Miles, but the battle was lost and he was named Tails. (although Yamaguchi managed to sneak the name 'Miles' into a LOT of the art in Sonci 2!!)

Also, judging by his "See you next game" hidden illustration in Sonic CD, he seemed to draw Tails's eyes a bit bigger than in the official model sheet... and the used perspective for both cars is kinda similar, too.

Loving the efforts being made on the wiki to replace fan recreations of artwork with official versions, particularly SA2 and Sonic Battle's. Not that recreations are bad, but a wiki should have the best available official version for preservation purposes.

This one is in that crappy anniversary art book. It should be legit judging from the nose.

So there's fake artwork now, too? Sheesh, we really live in the era of fakes, don't we.

...And yeah, the one in the Cook & Becker book seems to be the same as the middle-sized pic in the wiki, judging by this slightly odd shape in the white stripe:

Not sure if this one's on-topic, as it seems like it was never used outside of SEGA's HQ, but here's this:

An image of Retro Amy's decision was found. Mr. Hoshino painted the picture. Retro Amy's design finish was Mr. Hoshino.

I've been wondering for a while what was up with the non-entirely-oval shape in which the pupils of certain Classic Sonic figurines were drawn, and this hints at that having just been Kazuyuki Hoshino's style at some point. Maybe not, see below.

Some of Ohshima's early Sonic art had those style of eyes too.
