    I just looked at the Jazwares site, and they <a href="http://www.jazwares.com/2010/products/10inch-Action-Figure/" target="_blank">don't have one,</a> but of course the site could be out of date. Or yes, your friend is incorrect.

    But a 10"figure of Knuckles would be abolutely fantastic. Old style, of course.

    I'd be perfectly fine with a new-style Knuckles so long as he doesn't have an awkward-looking smirk like the Sonic figure. His design changes haven't been that radical compared to some of the other characters (some of them even beneficial, to me anyway).

    If I can find the Metal Sonic cheap, I'm going to buy the crap out of it. It's just so cool looking.

    Also, what is the point of the transparent sonic toys I am seeing? Something from a newer game I haven't bought yet?

    The Sonic ones exist just to be cool (even though they actually look stupid), the Episo one actually makes some sense given that it's what he's all about.
     
  5. I went to my local Toys R Us recently to scope out the Sonic figures, problem with living down the block from a Toys R Us is that it attracts me almost weekly, I've so far scooped up a Chaotix two pack, Sonic and the Black Knight figure, and the Sonic Colors set. I was hoping they'd have the Free Riders figures but unfortunately they were lacking those. I'll try again after Christmas.

    Individually Numbered 20th Anniversary Collectible, Speeds Onto Nintendo Wii in Time for the Holidays

    San Diego, December 22. 2010

    Mad Catz® Interactive, Inc. (“Mad Catz” or“the Company”) (AMEX/TSX: MCZ), a leading third-party interactive entertainment accessory provider, today announced the release of the limited edition Sonic the Hedgehog Figure Inductive Charger featuring a six inch tall Sonic and charge base for use with the Nintendo Wii video game system. Now shipping, the new Inductive Charger is released under the Company's Mad Catz casual gaming brand.
    Complementing the Mad Catz’ officially licensed Sonic the Hedgehog video game accessory range and just in time to celebrate Sonic's 20 th Anniversary, the Inductive Charger is a limited edition, individually numbered, highly-collectible method for storing and charging up to two Wii remote controllers.
    Sonic the Hedgehog is carefully sculpted, standing six inches tall, guardedly watching over gamers’ Wii remotes as they silently charge atop a green plateau representative of the classic‘Green Hill Zone’ that fans are sure to recognize and appreciate. Built-in magnets help ensure controllers and battery packs are aligned in the most efficient charging position while rechargeable NiMH battery packs rapidly energize to provide up to 15 hours of game play. With innovative electromagnetic induction technology providing the means to charge Wii remotes without the need to remove protective protective silicone covers or Wii MotionPlus™ add-ons, the Sonic the Hedgehog Figure Inductive Charger delivers a fun, hassle-free charging solution.
    Darren Richardson, President and Chief Executive Officer of Mad Catz commented,“We are delighted to be a part of Sonic's 20 th Anniversary with the new licensed Inductive Charger. Working alongside SEGA, we believe we have created a charging solution which will prove irresistible to Sonic fans and gamers alike and one which continues to illustrate our strategy of bringing premier licenses to market via products which evoke a passionate consumer response.”
    The Sonic the Hedgehog Figure Inductive Charger by Mad Catz is now shipping within the United States and is available on the Mad Catz web store (store.gameshark.com) for an MSRP of $49.99.<!--QuoteEnd--></div><!--QuoteEEnd-->

    Boasting colorful, officially licensed artwork, Mad Catz' Hedgehog 2X Inductive Charger integrates the convenience of contactless charging into a sleek, compact design. Sonic the Hedgehog is vibrantly portrayed gathering rings in a 3D lenticular freeze-frame—which displays different images depending upon the viewing angle. Built-in magnets help ensure controllers and battery packs are aligned in the most efficient charging position, while twin rechargeable NiMH battery packs energize rapidly to provide up to 15 hours of gameplay. With innovative electromagnetic induction technology providing the means to charge Wii Remotes without the need to remove protective silicone covers or Wii MotionPlus add-ons, the Hedgehog 2X Inductive Charger delivers the utmost in hassle-free charging.<!--QuoteEnd--></div><!--QuoteEEnd-->

    For the record, they don't ship outside the US. It looks like this will have to be an eBay deal for any of us non-Americans.

    Considering I'v never used eBay, and probably not for unless absolutely needed, I'l miss out on that. Even though it does look pretty cool.

    It's nice to see 20th anniversary merchandise starting to appear. I actually quite like the look of that first Wii remote charger, the one with the Sonic figure; it'd be cool if something like that came to the UK (I doubt it, but stranger things have happenend). Makes me wonder what other merchandise will be announced for the 20th anniversary - personally, I'd like to see something with the classic Sonic design, it would make sense to me.
     
  9. We'll definitely be seeing a slew of 20th anniversary stuff, and classic designs are a definite, in fact I'm pretty sure they have as much classic merch as they do modern merch, considering my bed is riddled with classic Sonic

    Bloody hell, classic Metal Sonic with light-up eyes, that's awesome! I've gotta get this, without a doubt, it'll look fantastic alongside the light-up Super Sonic I've ordered...

    I've been able to pass these up with sheer willpower so far (since they're more expensive than a kinect), but if they ever release a Metal Knuckles, I'll cave in so fast...

  17. My God, I saw that Metal Sonic and I started breathing heavy like I was having an asthma attack. Which is weird because I don't have asthma. Good fucking God that's awesome.

    making cool music no one gives a shit about
    That's cool, I suppose, but I'm fine with the big ol' posable Metal Sonic figure that's been released already. Maybe my opinion will change when I see full pics.
