  1. Is anyone here going to Phoenix Comicon? I will be doing a panel there about action figures. Come by so we can chat about Sonic and the good old days http://www.phoenixcomicon.com/programming/category/youth
  2. What up! Thought I forgot about you guys, well no. I was in New York for Toy Fair and stopped by the Jazwares booth. I saw the last Sonic item I worked on, the Anniversary statue. The one I saw looked great, I do not know if it was production or not! They showed me a concept of a box set with Charmy Bee, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed! I was in NYC because I had some of my customs at the Four Horsemen show Toypocalypse 2: Futuretro You can see them here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/levarekgallery/6924417877/in/set-72157629440265701 You can see more of my work here: http://joeamaro.blogspot.com/ -Joe
  3. Thank you everyone!!! You guys are the best! Don't worry I am positive Jazwares will do a great job with Sonic! Keep sending them your ideas and feedback, it helps a ton! There is already plans for more Sonic toys, here is a hint...for every new game Jazwares will make toys for it! I have already told everyone at Jazwares that Charmy Bee and Rouge must be made!!! I need to complete the agency!!! LOL -Joe
  4. Hi everyone, I am sorry it's been a long time! I wanted to let you know that after 7 years I am stepping down from Jazwares. I am off to a new adventure! But I wanted to thank you Sonic fans for all the support through the years! We have had a great run!!! It has been a huge honor for me to work on Sonic!!! The line will continue under someone else's direction, I'm sure it will be in good hands. This is not good bye, I'm always around needing out so keep in touch. Thank you once again, Joe Amaro www.joeamaro.net
  5. Hi! Is there a name for Sonic fans? Like for Masters of the Universe fans it's He-Fans or Star Trek fans it's Trekkies or Trekkers. Do we have one? Just got back from New York ToyFair, Jazwares was not showing but I was at the booth of one of our distributors Zoofies. http://www.zoofies.com/ I was helping them out talking about some of our new products, like Sonic!!! I spoke to Jay from ENI, they have some good photos: http://toynewsi.com/news.php?catid=288&itemid=16928 Pixel Dan stopped by to chat you can see the videos below. Direct link to our Jazwares photo album: http://popculturenetwork.com/mediagallery/album.php?aid=719&page=1 Interview with me: http://popculturenetwork.com/article.php?story=20110215112047736 Thanks, Joe
  6. The base is foam core with MagicSculpt over it. The bones are all MagicSculpt. A little hint on the background it's the inside of my Castle Grayskull...which I am finally working on. You can see more pictures on my blog: http://joeamaro.blogspot.com/ Whatcha think?
  7. Hey everyone!!! Wow, it's been a long time, sorry about that. I have been working hard for you fans!...Remember I am a fan too! First off the Sonic Free Rider figures should be hitting stores very soon. We took our time on these to improve the quality. In fact I just got back from China, I was there for two weeks fixing things. I can't say much (company policy) but I can say that we have made some HUGE changes that WILL result in extremely better quality product! Right now that is the #1 concern of the Sonic team! We are working on press releases right now for all the new stuff we have coming out! You guys are gonna be happy. Even though I don't post I do follow the thread and I read all the comments we get on our website. Please continue to send us comments on our site, Our CEO reads those so it helps our cause when we want a figure like Rouge! She is coming in 2011! I also read all the letter you send, talking to you...Anthony in Staten Island, NY! Back to work, but I wanted to take a break and check in with my fellow Sonic fans. Thanks again for all your support! -Joe
  8. If you guys are going to Comic Con make sure you drop by Entertainment Earth's booth #2343 Friday July 23 from 11:00 am - 12:00 pm. Seth Green and Matt Senreich will be signing our "Robot Chicken Convention Nerd", he's our Toys-"R"-Us exclusive! I will be there as well, so maybe we can all chat about Sonic? -Joe
  9. Hey guys! So far we have announced most of the the new items we have coming up. Check the lastest SEGA blog that has some good info. Most of the stuff should be hitting stores around August/September, I think. We are working on some new Sonic stuff right now , but we just started. I am trying to get more news out through some of the news sites, like TNI and such. Side note, be sure to check the next issue of ToyFare, we have a good article in there. It's about the Robot Chicken toys.
  10. When I saw the "Chunk" figure from Toy Story 3 I thought with a little work it could look like a Masters of the Universe figure. It already looked like a Filmation design. So I glued the face in place, added Magic Sculpt on top and resculpted the face. Blended it with the body better and then I sprayed on some texture. Finally some cool rock painting and he was ready to battle! Whatcha think, it fits in right?
  11. Hey guys! Okay so let's talk A-Team figures! I know there are some concerns with paint, we are working on fixing this. This has been taken to the highest level possible! If you get a defective figures (and I include bad paint) please contact our customer service people and they will make sure it is replaced. If you need to, tell them Joe Amaro sent you. Ask the Sonic fans we make good on our word and stand by our products. Just a heads up on the van, the side door does slides but it is meant to be removed. This was done because of all the new toy safety laws. Believe me I fought hard on that one! But I'm not an engineer. So that out of the way, what do you think?
  12. Off topic...did you guys see the A-Team figures?
  13. Heys guys, I wanted to jump in here. Eventually Metal Sonic will be released on single card. But we pulled him from the Comic Book pack and put in Amy instead. The next time you will see Metal Sonic is with the Toys-R-Us exclusive 2 pack that includes Dr. Eggman. This Metal Sonic will have all silver joints (hips), brighter colors and will be the much improved plastic. The package is going to be super cool, it will be a diorama where Eggman is building Metal Sonic! I am trying to do some type of variant on Metal Sonic but SEGA is very strict on variants. I am answering all the SEGA blog questions now, but there are over 65+ questions! So I have to work a little, answers some questions...design a little, answer some questions...paint a little, answer some questions. LOL!
  14. Hey guys! Thanks for submitting questions on the SEGA blog! And now you can follow us on Facebook and Twitter! I'll try to leek info on there as well. Facebook link: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Jazwares/117557138268379 Twitter link: www.twitter.com/jazwares Thank you so much for all your support! Joe
  15. 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
