    So I stopped by Hallmark to check out those Sonic Christmas ornaments. My thoughts were that they were not very good quality and expensive. The painting seemed sloppy, and at about $50 CAD for the pair, I just didn't feel like I needed them. Also I theme my Christmas tree how I think Robotnik would decorate his, industrial, flat-black and copper... so they wouldn't fit in... on the other hand, I would cherish them as my "Sonic" ornaments for life, so I'm indecisive as per usual...

    Anyone else thinking of getting them? Does anyone think they may increase in value as a collectors item? I'm looking for reasons to spend the cash I suppose.

    They probably will increase in value. It seems like Sonic merch always has a higher resale value, but if you would "cherish them for life" resale value doesn't matter much.

    Got my sister to pick me up a pair since she's way more likely to go to a hallmark store than me.

    My mom is all about Hallmark ornaments so I'm very likely going to get one for Christmas without asking. Not that I mind, although my tree is very small and I can barely fit all my ornaments on there as is. >.>

    The Knuckles ornament is probably going to be the most likely to increase in value due to being more limited in quantity.

    I had the opposite reaction, I was actually really surprised by the quality of the ornaments I got. The paint job was nice and the sculpts were delicate and detailed. I don’t know about 50 CAD but they we’re definitely worth 20 USD
     
  7. I don't know, the kid in me wants them but the adult in me is like... this is a minor feature on a tree that others may or may not even see, it is really worth spending money on them? They do look cool, though!

    Looking forward to discover what game they couldn't include in the book and what character had their name changed.

    Whatever I don't lose interest in.
    I don't see any Sonic Pocket Adventure.

    We're never seeing that game officially again lol

    there’s a couple pre-adventure games not seen in the video: chaotix, spinball, fighters, probably means nothing since it’s only one game that got shunned (I think?)

    I'm guessing it's Pocket Adventure, given it was developed and produced by SNK and has yet to see any re-release.

    Ian mentioned on Bumblekast that there were a few enemies that Sega didn't have official names for, so he asked if he could name them. I believe he mentioned some unnamed Chaotix enemies.

    Sonic Spinball is in the video.

    Honestly my bet is Sonic Chronicles being the unused title

    iirc Ian clarified some time back that Chronicles is referenced in the book, but I'm British so I won't know for another month :')

    Yes, Kyle asked him if the forbidden game "rhymes with Sonic Schmonicles", and he said "no, that one is listed".

    I don't see why they wouldn't list Chronic Sonicles.
