  1. That's my exact same thought. So far, what TOMY has shown has looked pretty horrible IMO. 5 points of articulation just screams happy meal toy to me. That, on top of the fact that I don't like the Boom designs and prefer the older video game designs makes me think that my time as a Sonic figure collector is over. I loved the Jazwares figures, had every single one they made, but recently sold the whole collection. I lost interest knowing that we won't get to add any more figures to that collection. Unfortunately it seems that SEGA is only focused on media tie-ins and products that are of Sonic Boom. I really do hope another company picks up the Sonic license and is allowed to make figures from the older games but that would be a few years off at the soonest. A toy license is generally for either 3 or 5 years and the company always has the option to renew the license once it's about to be up as long as the IP holder (SEGA) allows it.
  2. Which line? TOMY's Sonic Boom line? Jazzy's Sonic line, it was de-listed from their site, honestly, I'm not upset nor surprised. The line has pretty much been put on a bus by the end of 2012 and we pretty much got nothing afterwards aside from more double dips which notably took a drop in quality (the paint errors and weird assembling is pretty jarring, I mean come on, a Super Silver with the colors of normal Silver? Seriously?). The minute they pretty much said they had no plans for Rouge and Classic Knuckles despite announcing them I pretty much gave up any hope I had for the future of the line. Either way, it was still a good run, I had fun spending my money on these figures. We got characters we wanted like the Chaotix and Metal Sonic, at least, and some actual Classic Sonic action figures. But it's pretty much time to move on, heck, maybe some better company will pick up Sonic in the future. Oh.. I thought that was a known fact. Once it was announced TOMY had the master Sonic toy license that means that other companies (aka Jazwares) can no longer create new product. They are still allowed to sell off the products they have already produced for a short time though. It does suck that they never got to make Rouge, Classic Knux, and Omega though! I'm sure they saw the writing on the wall and with supposed low sales of the later Sonic stuff, I'm sure they opted to not spend the money producing anything new.
  3. Which line? TOMY's Sonic Boom line?
  4. Well...Jazwares won't, so I will. Working with a buddy to make a custom Rouge figure. Head was a digital sculpt he did and the body I'm sculpting traditionally. Pics of the body coming soon.
  5. The brochure that was posted months ago showed the 5" scale classic Sonic with light up emeralds that came out recently, and had images from games or mock ups (not the actual figures) of more 5" Black Knight figures, 5" figures with light up emeralds, and the long rumored Shadow/Rouge pack. http://www.sonicstadium.org/2013/04/jazwares-announces-even-more-new-sonic-toys/ Some of this stuff has made it to stores since that was uncovered so hopefully the rest is not far from coming out also.
  6. It's the same molds that all the accessory pack figures had. The ones that didn't get updated articulation then still don't have it in this pack. It is nice to FINALLY see a correctly painted Silver (white gloves) and what looks to be a lighter yellow version of the brownish one from the accessory pack.
  7. Same with me! That's the last time new 3" figures were released and Jazwares needs to hurry up with more!
  8. Yeah, that is all the local TRU's around me have had in stock for months. EntertainmentEarth is really good about listing everything Jazwares has coming out and it seems that only the Sonic, Shadow, and Knuckles figures from the most recent singles are currently shipping. I'd say that as of now, you have a good chance of possibly seeing those three in stores but not the other 3 figures from the series. http://www.entertainmentearth.com/prodinfo.asp?number=JZ65815A#.Ue9mWGRY6EI
  9. Did you get the 3" figures with badniks wave? The Classic 4 pack, Modern/Classic Eggman packs, Classic Amy/Sonic comic pack and the metallic Silver/Shadow comic pack came out at the same time. Then the 6 Free Riders figures, and then the most recent stuff which is the figure with accessories wave, the Chaotix 3 pack, and the Sonic/Blaze comic pack.
  10. Sorry guys, thats actually a custom pack I made. I posted it in the middle of the night and was so tired that I didn't even think to say that it was a custom I had made. I'm so used to posting mainly custom figures that it didn't even cross my mind. I wish Jazwares would make it a real comic pack though!
  11. Weird that only Amy is being sold in that slim packaging. Jazwares doesn't go to SDCC so don't expect to hear any news from the convention. Hopefully they'll announce things via their facebook for fans since most other companies will have news coming out due to SDCC.
  12. The new packaging is a smarter design choice if anything. They can now get more of these on the shelves at once since they don't have to be stacked like the last ones did. Still waiting for news or any info on the other planned Sonic things from Jazwares..... They've been quiet for months now, and all across the board. Not just for Sonic merch.
  13. Rouge was confirmed for (I believe) a fall release. She's definitely coming since the had the mock up in the solicitation from a month or so ago.
  14. It's got the updated articulation that some of the most recent accessory figures have. They also have the World War Z and Wizard of Oz licenses that aren't on their site. There isn't anything regarding Nicktoons or Hanna Barbera either but they probably still have those licenses. There is a second wave of Hanna Barbera figures coming as noted by "octane" who has a lot of insider info.
  15. I agree about this thread being so quiet! Although, if Jazwares would actually drop news of new products or actually release some things, I bet there'd be more chatter. Just bought this prototype Knuckles figure off ebay. It's a new mold for Knux that hasn't been used on any figure of him before. It's almost as if it was supposed to be in the accessory wave but could have gotten cut and replaced with the old figure mold for cost issues. That or it could be from something we don't know about yet.
