    That bottom pose was reused for his modern Sonic too!

    A Sonic puzzle from about 1992/93. In the Sonic 1 and 2 Official Player's Guide I scanned about a year ago, look at the last 2 pages with the Sonic merch. It's there.

    Edit: Here is a cropped pic. Was at work when I originally posted.

    Sorry if this has already been addressed, but does anyone know where these Little Planet artworks are from? Because knowing the sources may help us get better scans:

    I know SonicGenesis89 gave us this awesome scan, but sadly the art is obstructed in that version.

    I see Sonic with a sword.

    And yet people bitched when Sonic and the Black Knight did it.
     
  9. Classic Sonic is cute enough to pull it off.

    It's not a double standard. It's a completely separate context. Random wristwatch art of Sonic in a cape with a sword is not comparable to an entire Sonic video game being based on the concept of Sonic wielding a sword in a dark and serious fantasy setting.

    I don't actually care one way or the other, but people who dislike Black Knight have every right to think it's dumb.

    Dark and serious? I mean, most of the cutscenes had Sonic interacting with his snarky talking sword, or with Arthurian characters played by Sonic's friends. The game hardly took itself seriously; it was aware of the concept's ridiculousness and played with it.

    If so that's fine. From advertisements it seemed just as dark and serious as other games of the era. I never played it. Regardless, my point is that the context of those things are not comparable.
     
  15. And the watch probably functions as intended, which is more than be said of Black Knight

    And the watch is also ancient, given that it still uses the SegaSonic The Hedgehog name. :V And also this is in a topic called Rare Art - do you legit think anyone here had seen this before it was posted in here? Or anyone who was around for both that watch and Black Knight? lol

    The art of Sonic himself looks really Advance-ish too.
