    Page 17 here in the US manual talks about Robotnik's "Death Egg Ship" in Sonic 3.

    Does anyone have this Sonic & Tails (Sonic Chaos) poster? I think someone posted a photo of it before?

    The upper right has a piece of art work that isn't in the manual - the second form of the final boss.

    It also has the full version of Dangerous Ball Tower (the giant blue Caterkiller) - the very bottom of the art is cut off in the manual.

    It would be brilliant to have scans of this art, but even just a close up photo would be pretty good.

    "Wo ist mein Sega" was an advertising campaign in Germany, and came equipped with a load of off-model Sonic artwork. It's really easy to find these stickers online, but this is the first scan I've seen, making it slightly more "useful" than the others I've seen thus far.

    A placeholder cover for Sonic CD. That Sonic was originally drawn for Sonic 2 so it's not entirely new art, but... well.


    From two of these Electronics Boutique catalogues that I'm in the process of uploading because somebody has to I guess.

    Yuji Uekawa's artstyle gives me life. I wish they were still using it for the cover art of modern day Sonic games.

    And here's some Classic Sonic

    The original scan is here btw if anyone wants to try to restore it since I didn't really do a good job, especially with Sonic.

    It's so nice to see a full scan of that calendar, great job Casshern!

    Related to this image, there's a blink and you'll miss it early draft that can be seen in the Sonic 3 promo VHS. In the draft Tails is off to the left hand side and Sonic's pose is a lot weaker, but the general idea and layout was retained (including Pecky cutting the rope bridge).

    Nice catch! Man, I really wish we could get our hands on those sketches.

    There are a bunch of details in that picture that I've only just noticed - the smoking object in the background is a wrecked Egg Mobile, Picky has mistaken the snake for rope, a coconut has fallen on a crocodile's head and the crocodile in the lower left is up to something with the loose rope.

    The googly eyed bird losing its featheres is quite similar to these two images:

    Some time ago I sent some old Sonic stuff to a friend and while I forgot to scan the art on them, she sent me photos, so here they are. Two of the "Wo ist mein Sega" stickers and a badge that unfortunately didn't survive the test of time.

    ^ I don't think I've seen these before. Anyone recognise them?
