SEGA News Bits: Sonic Mania Introduction Manual Quick Look

The Sonic Mania Comic Con panel has come and gone, with it we got news regarding lots of things Sonic Mania related (which will be covered in tomorrow’s video) but we also got to see a Sonic Mania’s instruction Introduction manual in the form of a promotional item that was given away at the event. On this episode of the SEGA News Bits we look through some of the pages of the Sonic Mania manual, talk about concept art for a never before seen Sonic Mania stage and cry that we didn’t get a manual for our personal collection. In the comments below let us know what you think of the Sonic Mania manual and should there be a physical release for this game already? Feels like Sonic Mania has everything released physically besides the actual game, right?

SDCC 2011: A Fuzzy Sonic Figure You Can’t Have… Or Can You?

For those of you going to this year’s San Diego ComicCon, you’ll have the opportunity to pick up that blue statue on the right if you manage to stop by Toys R Us’ booth and pick up the SDCC exclusive figure.

So what the heck is so special about this figure from any other molded piece of plastic Sonic? Figure creator Jazwares is touting this as the world’s first ever “flocked deluxe” action figure, which means that parts of Sonic are covered in fiber materials to make it feel like plush fur on the blue spiky one.

Not all is lost for those that can’t make it to San Diego between July 21 and July 24. On the last day of the event, Toys R Us will be selling these figures via their website for action figure fans to swarm in and gobble up.

The figure stands at a height of 10 inches/254mm and can be posed as you see fit.
