    I'll check local stores - they tend to throw stuff like this out when they are done with it (did anyone want animal crossing posters? I forgot to take them)

    Coincidently, the same statue is at the SEGA Player's Arena in Shanghai.
    I see on this one that the hand's been tilted down

    That one looks like a prototype.


    The other pictures, the statue isn't shiny, and is a different color blue.

    Actually, if you lived in the UK, last month you could have won this thing by using a Gedit card in any of the stores.

    This month a giant little sister statue is up for grabs.

    That's awesome!
    I wish my local Gamestation did awesome stuff like that, but the most we got was some statue of Link a while back. >__>

    Not that I've got anything against him, obviously.

    Shit, I want one of those.


    It's not the first time GameStation has done statues, either - anyone remember the Master Chief ones around the time Halo 3 came out?

    The Gamestation near me didn't have one =( Then again it's a small store here, so yeah. God I wish I had that thing.

    Oh sorry, I missed this reply:

    the person you see to the left was actually a little girl - I've guessing around... 8 or 9 years old perhaps? Could be wrong though. ^^

    *edit* thanks for the confirmation that it's definitely 2 meters tall Jof :words:

    My local Gamestation had one of those too, around a year ago. It was an awesome statue but really wasn't the best idea in the world, given that it's not a very big shop so the statue tended to get in the way quite frequently, especially when trying to get around the shop when it was crowded - which is difficult at the best of times.

    That Sonic statue is SO cool! =D Makes me wonder now if my Gamestation will get one seeing as we had that Link one before (I hope so, that'd be great even if it's likely to get in the way like the Link one did).

    I saw one of those when I was in Meadowhall (Sheffield) a few days ago. If I remember correctly, there were a couple of giant statues of other characters as well as Sonic. Can't remember whether they were Sonic characters or from other games, though.

    If I'd known people on this forum were talking about it, I'd have taken photos with my iPhone :words:

    There's a Sonic statue like this in GAME in Bolton. :words:

    Alsso, IIRC there's also a pretty awesome one of Iron Man in the new Game Exchange, where they've blutacked the latest PS3 and XB360 releases to his hands =P

    I think there are 200 of the things around the UK, Europe or something like that, having put one together I can tell you they are a pain in the backside to do and come in very large boxes indeed. Stores are under stict instructions they aren't to sell them off or give them away to my knowledge. Sorry!

    Aww, that sucks. At least they look nice though. Would be kind of nice if SEGA sold them off like how Nintendo sold off a Link statue in it's store for 16,000 points.

    I'm no security guard but I think this heist might be a bit tricky to pull off. =P
