    even if they don't happen, why not send in the demand to Sega and Sega Japan?
    (No, that's not a goof up)

    At least for now. It's not a lost cause, because sometimes Sega changes their minds. The first time JazWares asked for permission to make a Werehog plush, Sega said no. Later on, they approved it. JazWares can be very persistent and might still be able to convince Sega if there's enough fan support out there.

    Ok, I'm gonna shed some light on this list here, as I've been closely following this whole shebang.

    Starting with the first two sets, which should really be one. It's not Caterkiller, but the sandworm from Sonic Colors. Whoever made this list obviously had a gander at the recent pictures. The single card Super Sonic and Super Silver have NOT been announced, but are both educated guesses. Likely based on the fact that there are single card Super Shadow's floating about right now. As for Single card chaotix, only Charmy has been announced. The other two are wishful thinking.

    Speaking of bullshit, Omega needs to be moved to the "Submitted for Approval to Design Team" section, and Shade needs to be added there. To be specific, Rouge, Omega, Shade, and Mighty all have gone up that we know of, and Rouge is the only one to have definitively passed. Blaze was mentioned as being in preproduction an eternity ago (just shortly after Jet actually) and Wave JUST went into production.

    Now this here rejected list, isn't exactly telling the whole story. First off, no word was EVER given on Tails Doll. Metal Knuckles was asked about, and the reason he was declined is the exact same as the comic characters: Jazwares (at the time) didn't have the rights to them. They only had the rights to the active modern cast (IE: everyone on Sonic Channel) as Sega of Japan definitively has the rights to those characters (apparently SoJ is doing the approvals alone). Silver Sonic wasn't actually Silver Sonic, but a repainted Metal Sonic. Thus he was declined as part of a "no variant" clause (which seems to have been overturned). Metal Sonic 3.0 had SEVERAL inaccuracies, and was likely declined for this reason.


    That said, just because something was declined doesn't mean that's the end. A lot of factors weigh into these things, the biggest being distributing the green. I'm making an educated guess here in saying the doors for all the classic characters got busted wide open with the acquisition of the classic license. And yes, Werehog plush WAS turned down in the early parts of this line, but clearly something fell in line for it to happen.

    So yeah, keep the demand up! Follow Jazwares on Facebook and Twitter if you use them, and fill out the survey on the website. As long as its there, the Powers That Be will be motivated to give in. Classic Sonic itself is a huge victory for us. The demand for that amongst the fans was HUGE. I think it probably eclipsed the demand for the comic cast!

    Holy SHIT, those classic figures! It's about time we got a classic Robotnik, I was surprised First 4 Figures didn't do one for that six pack of small classic figures they released recently. I'm so buying the classic Sonic and Robotnik/Eggrobo, I just hope they get a release here in the UK (I'll have to ask my in-laws to send them to me from the States if not).

    It's a shame Silver Sonic, Tails Doll and Metal Knuckles were rejected; I hope Sega reconsider.

    Also:

    They're usually priced around $10-$15, I believe.

    $6 to $20, depending on the size.

    The Classic Sonic figure will most likely run for $10.

    $10 really? Will it be available at any retailer? I'm kind of out of the Sonic loop so I have no idea.

    This might have to be the first Sonic thing I purchase since Sonic 06.
