    For some reason WIX is sometimes not loading all pics, so you may need to refresh the page (there should be 148 pics total)

    Hey I've been travelling a bit and the last place I visited was Mexico. I was pretty surprised at the amount of bootleg Sonic merch compared to other countries I've been. Actually some cool stuff in there. Everyone's stance on bootleg is their own but thought it might be cool to share some of my finds with y'all.

    Would anyone like me to post pics of the stuff I came across? If yes, do you have any recommendations for a good image site that works with this forum (for image lifetime, etc.)?

    I love bootlegs so I'd definitely would like to see more! Bootlegs are typically hilarious, but that sweatshirt/sweatpants combo is cool!

    Sorry for such a long wait. But take a look at this Wix page I made so I can post the pics!

    I've stayed in many countries these past few years and by far Mexico has shown the most love for Sonic. This is when I got the idea to start snapping pics of bootleg Sonic stuff (a couple official ones in here, maybe 1 or 2).
    I've seen a few Sonic things in other countries but he's pretty rare, even in Japan. You may be surprised at the top notch quality of some of the products here. Please enjoy!

    When I start travelling again I'll update with more Sonic stuff I find !

    Thanks for sharing. Some of these items are pretty decent.

    Respect to whoever made the Robo Sonic and Darkspine Sonic plushies. I never expected that.

    The funniest thing was the wall decoration or whatever it was with both movie designs.

    Haha it would be cool if they filled the pinata with some gold foil rings along with the other stuff !

    On the topic of bootleg stuff, in case we do want to document it, you should take a look at this Facebook page, which contains a few Sonic-related gems.

    I won't post all of them here because my laptop died and I'm stuck with my phone, but someone should download them from a computer so they don't get degraded by Facebook Mobile (or you can use the desktop mode from your phones, but eh, effort).

    I only attach one of the weirdest ones, but again, since I downloaded it from Facebook Mobile, its quality is only 65%, so it shouldn't be used for actual documentation.
