    Ohshima said on Twitter a few years ago that the armadillo drawing isn't his. It might have been created for that video.

    Was going to say, obviously it's not perfect but the aesthetics of that armadillo scream American drawing, not Japanese.

    Also

    Do we actually specifically know it was a hedgehog character by this point? "Wonder Hedgehog" could easily just be the name of the ability

    Sazpaimon scanned a new pic where the Mega Drive can be seen:

    JacePlace asked Naka regarding what's on that Mega Drive:

    And what does he mean by that? It looks like this is what they seemed to call "pops":

    EDIT:
    By the way, this one seems to have been designed for the Game Gear version, judging by the narrower width at the bottom:

    Update. Mr. Ohshima got back to me. Asking him one more thing and then I’ll get a update to my Sonic 1 video out. :)

    I always wondered what these little cutouts were for. Amazing discovery, thank you all so much for documenting and collating these things...

    And there's the original, unedited scan with size annotations:

    I guess that Pix n Love or whoever "cleaned" it up for their book didn't really care much about historical value.

    I'd be wary of this - I've seen nothing to suggest the Game Gear version was being considered in 1990. Also it would obscure a Sega logo.

    I guess that somebody can just print the whole thing at the proper size and see if it fits. Could still have been designed for it just in case, but not used in the end.

    Looking at this makes me think the 2 in the bottom are supposed to be acrylic stands.
