Here in the Sonic Retro community, apart from our constant discovery and hacking, we don’t get to see much of the old look of Sonic advertised in official products that aren’t just recycled art. On these special occasions, the usual reaction is an overwhelming nostalgia rush.
First4Figures have brought us some nice retro statues over the past few years and they never fail to please. Maybe the price is a little high, but I’d say their latest endevour is worth a lot of childhood memories for most of us.
I mean, wow, look at this. Now that your fangasming is out of the way, let me enlighten you on a few details of this beauty if you haven’t already checked the site out yourself, which I will link at the end of this article. From the looks of it, this statue looks to be made from a high-quality plastic which suits the cartoony look they were going for (heck, it better be top quality for the $139.99 price tag.) The model itself is 15 inches to the top of the quills to the base. Pre-orders are being taken now, but the official date listed for the figurine’s sale is “Q1 2011”.
Now, take a look at the exclusive $159.99 edition.
So why pay an extra ten dollars to get the $159.99 edition? Well, not only is it the same amazing Super Sonic standing on one of the most memorable stages from Sonic 2, but it also lights up! Though either way both figures still look quite epic. So it’s up to you guys whether you want to pay and extra $20 to light this baby up.
