    So we don't even know the original person who took the photo?

    Maybe this photo just appeared on the internet one day:tinfoil:

    Bumping this thread again. This brilliant keychain from a customer at my job... Sonic the Shadowhog!

    If it looks more purple than blue that's my phone being more colourblind than me, it was a bit more blueish.

    I've seen variations of this type of keychain. One of them is a Werehog painted over a regular Sonic mold

    The uniting feature of all of them is that they have the Sonic Heroes logo for some reason

    :objection:

    Actually, that keychain is Shadow's model, as evident by the quills, but Coldsteel has Sonic's quills, so it's not actually him, but a faker! :eng101::eng101::eng101:

    I think the site is AI-generated. The description at the bottom is stolen from this page and this page (from what I can tell, it is/was an actual business), only changing a few words around. The description on the gaoteeshirt page was also used here, though I'm not sure which one came first or if they're connected in any way.

    gaoteeshirt also links to another site which also looks AI generated, reallovetees, because of its random mishmash of designs (there's a shirt with Rosie the Riveter wearing a mask right next to a shirt mourning over Rush Limbaugh.

    I think we stumbled upon an AI dropshipping ring.

    Friendly reminder that you can feel free to add them here. I'd do that myself, but I hate my life, just try to keep the naming convention for consistency and it will be fine.

    Oh god there's BTS stuff there too, my spouse would get a kick out of this picture.
    Anyways I always laugh and kind of cringe at the bootlegs that make Sonic's nose the same color as his muzzle. xD

    These are just candies that look like cigarettes, so no direct harm from putting one in your mouth... the harm comes years later when little Timmy decides to try the real deal, surely they're just as delicious and Sonic-endorsed right...
