Wow ,that statue looks neat.
If only they would make a Shadow the Hedgehog statue. I would totally buy it.


Don't worry I am sure they will end up making a Shadow the Hedgehog statue eventually know that they had already made a modern Sonic statue. I would love to see Nack/Fang along with the Chaotix which probably will not happen. I am just over joyed to see that Knuckles is coming out. I as well just received a paycheck and I am thinking about buying the Metal Sonic statue (exclusive) if not already sold out and the Knuckles when the time comes.

The only problem I have with the statues is that I want to be sure that they are actually worth the money and they will continue to be worth that price in later years. Metal Sonic is close to $178 MSRP without shipping costs. Does anyone think that these prices will increase as the years go on? And would anyone love to see the Chaotix members all in one statue, or each member have an individual statue?

Awesome stuff, can't wait to see it in full next week! I agree that his mouth looks a bit off though, hopefully it'll look better from a different angle.

I'm a huge fucking collectibles geek when it comes to Sonic the Hedgehog, but in my current financial situation I couldn't FATHOM paying upwards of $200 for a statue like these. Maybe if it were possible that these would sky rocket in price down the line and become very valuable, but who knows if that's what would happen. These seem to be pouring out in a series rather than just a one off collectible, so it's quite possible they won't be worth much if you tried to sell it. I was an early adopter of Kevin Smith's Clerks InAction Figure line, I bought each one as it came out, and they never went up in value. Even the autographed ones as they're in such abundance. It's a matter of whether or not you're willing to pay that much for a piece of memorabilia that you're willing to keep forever that may not go up in value, and may even go down in value. I honestly don't see the statues going down in value though, at best staying the same price, but who knows.

Tails is coming after Knuckles. I'd say you should expect his announcement before this time next year.

Knuckles doesn't seem to look right. maybe its just his positioning. But still- something about him makes me feel like it is broken, I'm not sure what. Chest and teeth, probably.

I definitely want to see a better/full picture of Knuckles.

I just doesn't look as good as the previous statues, his feet especially are off model. A shame because the glowing lava really does look awesome, shame about the statue it's self. I'm definately passing on this one.

I don't see anything wrong with his feet. It's just his face that looks somewhat weird.

I was expecting him the have shoes that resembled other classic artwork, like this one from Sonic Jam

That charcter sheet is really a poor representation of his classic look.

It does sort of confirm that they are using the character sheets that were found on the art assets DVD, all the characters so far have the colour guide sheets.

Eh, I suppose making them longer wouldn't hurt. The pose he's in perhaps makes his shoes look too small. Still, I can't get over how off his mouth looks.

I know I'm echoing others, but I feel like the mouth is what's ruining it for me. I liked it better when I thought the teaser image had a cocky smirk. Part of that's just because I associate Classic Knuckles with a smile, but the teeth seem a little odd here. The foreshortening makes it look like he has a big head on a tiny body (more than usual) which doesn't go well with the whole "aggressive" look either.

The lava is pretty awesome looking though.

Agreed about the face, but the lava is really awesome, and since I am a total tool for buying classic merch, there's not a doubt in my mind about me grabbing this
