    I was excited...until I saw First 4 Figures' name on it.

    I like Shadow. I do NOT like Shadow 500USD worth.

    Yeah, also not a fan of $500 going to F4F so they can peddle more NFTs...

    Couple sets I saw at Target today. Since one of them is seen on a store shelf and one is on a coffee table, you can guess which one I bought:

    Nice find! :)) but why is MODERN Tails paired with classic Sonic in the first one...?

    Heh, of all the things there could be figures of, they have the Studiopolis/Chaotix bouncy bumper balls. Kind of like it. What next, replicas of the Gumballs from the Doilus Stage?

    Same reason a Sonic Mania set includes a Red Star Ring, I guess...

    Maybe the Phantom Ruby crossed him over, haha. I think that’s a pretty good explanation actually.

    I didn’t realize these toys were out already.

    So, are the Mephiles and Emerl plushies any indication of these character returning to the spotlight soon?

    I mean, them showing in Sonic Rangers is unlikely, but in Sonic Prime... I can see them being alive and well. Mephiles could become an alternate take on Shadow becoming consumed by Chaos forces or something, destroying the world.

    I think they're just checking the boxes tbh, like with the Jaks Mecha Sonic figure. Not that I'm complaining, it's great to see the obscure characters getting merch.

  13. For anyone in the US (and elsewhere?) the Hallmark store have these... they really made my day. They're literally everything I've wanted for a Sonic Christmas ornament

    Is it bad that for some reason I don't like the Knuckles ornament as much as the Sonic and Tails one? I dunno what I would have made it, but him gliding and holding a ring seems weird.

    Nah, both seem cool, well-designed and remind me of Sonic3D Saturn Special Stage beginning scenes :D

    I know it's based on Chaotix, but that's not my first thought for Knuckles.
     
  18. I agree, I'd rather see him rubbing his rock hard fist nipples on a breakable wall, but the Knuckles and the Sonic+Tails ornaments have great design as far as character depiction go for hanging on a tree.

    I'll have to check these ornaments out. But I just bought the Classic Sonic Eggman Robot toy, the Classic Sonic Advent Calendar snowboard figure, and the Classic Sonic diorama from Numskull. If only Sega was somehow aware people like Classic Sonic, maybe they would make another classic game, but with Mania being such an awful flop by every measure, Sega would never be THAT stupid... Sega is a business.

    To be fair, we know concretely that Evening Star are working on their own IP now - it could very well have been the case that they were approached but turned the opportunity down in order to establish themselves independent of the Sonic franchise. In that case, SEGA could be waiting until Evening Star is available again so that the sequel to Mania is developed by the same talent so as to avoid disappointing fans with a flop that doesn't meet expectations, further damaging the brand.
