    I'm a big fan of the 3,5 Jazware figures. (I find their size and variety to be superior to all other editions)


    I've started to make my own custom figures, starting with simple recolors for now. As I grow more experienced, I'll be able to pull off some trickier sculpting stuff, but for the time being, recolors will do.

    Here's what I accomplished today, bear in mind it's still unfinished. :P

    Same here, would definitively put a pre-order in a heartbeat.

    Awesome, you have an account here too. :)

    As for customs, I'm planning to start one as well, tough in this case the one I have in mind is making an Amy in the VF-25 pilot suit since well... you know me, love Amy and Macross. XD

    Ah, thanks! I was wondering if you were a member as well. :D


    My lineup for upcoming customs figures are (in order of difficulty)

    -Silver Sonic (Sonic 2)
    -Super Mecha Sonic (Sonic 3&K)
    -Super Knuckles
    -Metal or Silver Knuckles
    -Super Tails (where am I going to get flickies...)
    -Mighty Armadillo (where things start to get interesting)
    -Nack / Fang (the most expensive of all to make, most likely)
    -Super Metal Sonic [red giant] (Knuckles Chaotix)

    F4F have sent this email to everyone outside of the US that's ordered a Metal Sonic statue. It just clarifies what we were told yesterday about them needing to renew the Sonic license for Europe. Hopefully it all goes through.
    <!--quoteo--><div class='quotetop'>QUOTE </div><div class='quotemain'><!--quotec-->Hello from First 4 Figures,

    Thank you for your order for the Metal Sonic collectible statue. Unfortunately our license for Sonic the Hedgehog has expired in Europe and the rest of the world apart from USA and Canada. We wish to extend our resin license with SEGA so that we can fulfill your Metal Sonic order and we should get a reply from SEGA in early January. Please kindly bear with us until we have further information, we will keep you posted.

    In the meantime, we have your order on file and will keep your product number/statue secure until we have an update from SEGA. If we can extend our license, your order will be fulfilled. If not, we will have to cancel your order. Please note, we have not charged your card and that your order is under pending status for now.

    Thank you for your patience.

  5. I'll be shocked if they can't get the license renewed. I wonder what would prohibit them from doing so-- too high of a cost from Sega? Fingers crossed for our friends across the pond!

    Hopefully the license issue will be resolved. I honestly don't think First 4 Figures should have announced this Metal Sonic figure until they knew what was happening with the license - that way they could have told people for sure whether or not it's gonna be available in Europe rather than getting everyone's hopes up and potentially having to cancel a load of orders.
     
  7. Yesterday I went to Toys R Us and as is been happening often for me at stores, all the price tags were wrong on EVERYTHING. Not individual prices on the products, but those tags that hang on the shelf where the figures go. They had 3 inch free riders figures for $10 each, is that right? I would've bought them if they were like $5 but there's no way I'm paying $10 for a 3 inch figure.

    Anyone else been having this problem?

    TRU suddenly decided to jack the prices on everything up to insane levels. I'm going to assume it was to take advantage of holiday shoppers and that they'll be falling in due time.

    Gathering information on Sega World Sydney and collecting Sonic merchandise.
    I stumbled across these great pictures of JazWares' booth at the 2011 UK Toy Fair. And I am stunned. JazWares sure knows how to make me go broke. They're celebrating Sonic's 20th in style with some of the most anticipated figures ever. The blue 'hog has evolved over the years, and JazWares pays homage by making a set of "Sonic Through Time" figures. Each figure contains a Sonic from a different design era, and is packaged in a box themed after the games that the Sonic is from. Here's a prototype of 1991 Sonic. I love the box! Green Hill Zone FTW!

    Now, we have the good old Dr. Robotnik, who comes with a small army of EggRobos! I never would have guessed we'd see figures of those! But if you prefer the more current Eggman, he will come with his robots from the opening cutscene of Sonic Unleashed. And what's that on the left? Modern Tails with a very Sonic 4-esque Badnik! It looks like it's from Sonic Colors, but I don't remember seeing that Badnik anywhere.

    Seriously? That is just beyond awesome! I wish First 4 Figures was making them so they wouldn't have those joints, but I might need to go out and get that Classic Robotnik and Eggrobo set.

    Also what years did they make Sonic models off of? I happen to notice that below Classic Robotnik is a modern Robotnik with Unleashed Eggpawn set as well

    Oh and that Sonic Colors Badnik can be seen a couple times in the Asteroid Coaster and maybe Aquarium Park but I'm not sure about that last one

    Robotnik and the Egg-robos are a must have, not too sure about any others though, let's hope we see some more pictures and info soon.

    Oh HELL yes! So glad they got the classic license. This totally ups the chance of them Making a Metal Knuckles.

    Also totally buying all of those.
     
  16. So how many different Sonic's are they going to do I wonder? The ones I'd like to see most are Sonic 3-style and Satam-style. Maybe Ass-face too, for kicks.

    Other possibilites:
    Mighty and Ray pack
    Old-school Chaotix pack (If Ritz saw a to-scale Vector he'd shit his pants)
    Tails Doll (package complete with bloody knife)
    Kukuu birds from Tails Adventure
    Characters from outside the games universe (especially Satam)

    Is this... the first ever action figures of Retro Sonic, Retro Robotnik, and the Eggrobos?

    ....

    I-I-I... Is this for real? They've finally made Retro action figures and not just figurines? FUCK, I NEED PRICE TAGS. I need to know when I can get these.

    I love this list of possibilities here. Especially that last one.

    The moment we get a set of Freedom Fighters, I'm laying down all of the money I would have at the moment to obtain them. No, I'm serious. Out of that list, the Freedom Fighters are the least likely candidates for action figures. JazWares better fix this injustice.

    It's not up to Jazwares, it's SEGA. They said no to Jazwares' suggestions of Metal Knuckles and Metal Sonic 3.0.
