New Sonic Figures!


Recommended Posts

Hmm I'm actually kind of glad I ordered metal in the comic 2 pack before the fix, sort of makes it original :D

cant wait for the amy 2 pack too

And also when is the 3 inch super sonic hitting the shelves? I'd like to know so I can save up some money for that time frame, becuase if it's going to be as good as I think it is, I'm going to be buying five of them.

Well I've been checking back often, but lately I haven't been finding anything at my local Wal-Mart. Have you guys had any luck with that store at all?

 

Also, THANK YOU to the fixing the Metal Sonic, he really is a good figure. And yes, I would also love to know when the 3-inch Super Sonic is coming out.

There is no difference with the new and old Metal Sonic figures, just the density of the plastic.

Please contact our customer service people if you got a defective Metal Sonic.

Make sure you show a picture and a receipt if possible, we don't want scalpers taking advantage.

 

Make sure you ask your questions on the SEGA blog, that way we can make sure you get an answer!

 

Thanks,

Joe

I should mention, I've contacted the Customer Service about the Metal Sonic. They say they've shipped one to me already. I'll let you guys know how it turns out.

 

EDIT: Wow, that was fast, I got it already! Then again, they're only in Florida while I'm in VA.

 

The new one is a lot more stable. Still almost broke the hands though. It took a lot less effort to get everything moving this time around though. It looks like it has better material, and it's a bit more shiny than the old one.

 

I'm actually pretty pleased with it overall. Thanks Jazwares! I do love your customer support.

Anyone else notice the ladder to nowhere on the right there?

 

-_- that ladder is entirely unimportant to the point XD

I find it odd that some people would be so upset that he is referred to as Eggman more often these days. But then again some people are upset that the so called "modern" Sonic is in Sonic 4. He has looked like that since 1998. That is retro by VH1 standards. @smilepunch@

Adding on to what Omnichorus said, they have the single-carded 3-inch Knuckles as well, although it's out of stock at the moment:

I definitely think it's about time that Toys R Us got these figures in stock; it's now more convenient than only finding the comic packs on their site. It also means we won't have to pay outrageous prices for the singular 3-inchers anymore.

Oh wow, I didnt even notice knuckles...they might have JUST added him...maybe they'll be adding more? Id buy more things off of there if the shipping was cheaper (Over 4 bucks. Thats almost paying double..) than it is. But eh its SO much better than paying 20 30 bucks for one of them. And I SO hope to see more figures appear on there.

What, do folks get up in arms about his dual names? I just call 'em Robotnik 'cause that's what I grew up with, but I understand his original name was Eggman. Either way, everyone knows what the other is talking about no matter which name they use. Ah, fandom.

It...doesnt really amount to making much of a difference does it? Hahaha. Ohh god I know...fandom. Its a complicated sort. Pretty much the same for any group of fans for a series.

Yeah, one of the worst part of fandom is the Old Fans vs New Fans. This is the perfect example: Robotnik has just got to be better because it's from our childhood, right? OH, but the Eggman was actually the original, so it's older! OoOoOoOoOo! Not only that but the New Fans have Eggman as well, so they have double the argument power! It's the Japanese name AND it's the name New Fans grew up with. And OH MAN, don't you dare mess with a nutty fan and The Original Japanese Name of something. The Original Japanese Name is a crazy fan's ultimate defense that cannot be defeated. Even if the OJN involves the R and L interchangeability, like Alucard and Arucard. People seriously consider Arucard as the OJN, and act as if that's different from Alucard....oy, you don't want to get into it. Like I said: Ah, fandom. They's is CRAZY.

I always saw Eggman as just a nickname for Robotnik. Sonic upset Robotnik when he called him Eggman in Sonic Adventure. It was kinda like in satam when he was called Robuttnik. Although these days the name Robotnik is hardly ever uttered.

In my early Sonic days, I used to think that Robotnik and Eggman were entirely different, mainly due to Robotnik having a more elongated oval top head with black eyes and red pupils, and the modern Eggman having glasses, with goggles and a more round head. When we were introduced to ''Gerald Robotnik'' in Sonic Adventure 2 I made the mistake of thinking that this version of Robotnik was an aged Robotnik from the Saturday morning version. -.- oh what a foolish fan I am, however I am definitely looking forward to the Egghead getting his own figure, I'll be getting two of course since I can't call myself a hardcore toy lover of All things sonic if I don't buy at least two of each. However when the CORRECT Super Sonic comes out hoo boy, I think I might buy 5! :D

Just got my 3 inch metal today and I was happy yet sad, happy becuase the detail on the figure is excellent, there's a few paint splotches on the muzzle and eyes but I can look past that. The real problem is the joints. They are way too stiff, I had to nearly break the leg joints just to move them and the arm joins still won't move (this is even after dunking the figure in a hot water bath for nearly 5 minutes), I'm not going to push it since I really want it to stay in one piece, but suggestions for improvement include a denser plastic and better maneuverability, I think the maneuverability factor should be key for all of these figures. The detail however is impeccable and the Sonic that came with Metal is excellent the stands are wonderful as well.. I'll be keeping the other set I got MIB

*AHEM*

 

ATTENTION SONIC FANS

 

 

You may officially piss yourselves.

 

 

I myself am REALLY glad we finally get him back in normal stages.

Finally! Glad to see Super Sonic being used in regular stages. Getting him whenever I want is MUCH more of a reward for getting all those emeralds than just an extra Super Sonic level.
