2013plush

On Friday, Sega Amusements posted a tweet suggesting that they were revealing a new Sonic Plush at EAG International. EAG is an arcade/amusement expo in which various companies show off arcade machines and other coin operated attractions. The plush was due to be shown next week at the event, however, it seems that someone has jumped the gun as earlier today Sega Amusements announced the entire range on their own website.

In that small blurb about me down there at the bottom of this article. It say’s I like merchandise. However my interest in plushies is quite low, as a result I don’t know too much about them, but as two other merch collectors have told me, they seem to be a very similar to the old Sonic X plush line.

Sega Amusements state that Tails, Amy Knuckles & Shadow will also be included in this new plush line, however they do not state if they will be at EAG. EAG starts on January 22nd and Sega can be found at booth 860. However check with them before hand to make sure the event is not closed otherwise if you randomly turn up, you might be asked to leave.

Stay tuned to TSS for more news as we get it.

    OH MY GOSH!!! SEGA made a SMARTPHONE?!! And a TABLET!!??! And you’re only telling us about PLUSHIES????!

    Don’t take this the wrong way. I love plushies. But I kind of want a tablet/smartphone more badly. And if they’re Sega-branded, it’s remotely possible that they may include a pre-loaded Sonic app (probably not, but one can hope).

    Sega finally releases a new game-playing device, and you only tell us about plushies…

    (For those of you who don’t know what I’m ranting about, click the source link at the bottom of the article).

    • I reported on them because they’re Sonic related news. The Tablet/phone thing is not. Furthermore they’re not branded Sega and do not include any Sonic apps.

      Also, they’re UFO prizes, they’re not going to be very good.

      First impression after reading your comment: MIND F***ING BLOWN!!!11!!
      First impression after seeing the actual tab/phone: ….meh?

      • Same here. The prospect of a SEGA branded smartphone or tablet had me drooling… but looking at the specs and design of each device leaves a lot to be desired. I mean sure, they’re not going to be as cutting edge as something like a Nexus 7, but they’re not even SEGA branded!!! No point in me trying to get one now…

  2. okay…so SEGA would rather license stuff and make money that way than go back to the hardware business, both make money, but in my opinion, they would make more money goin the hardware way. yeah…

  3. You are joking right? To make a new console and to set up the online support that they need these days and maintain it costs billions, it is not something Sega or any other company in their position could ever conceive in doing.

    • needsemail1 says:

      Yeah, and Sega can probably make more money staying third-party, anyway. That way, they can sell games to everyone, not just those who own their system(s).

  4. Ugly and fat. Especially Amy. Still interested in buying one though, as a collector’s item.

  5. Cool. I’ve already got a Sonic, Tails and Knuckles from GAME a while back, but I might get a Shadow, and possibly give someone a Amy as a gift. Hope they come to the UK.

  6. “New Sonic plush line” is a recycled Sonic X plush line. I bought several boxes of these a few years back. They’re nice, but not really new.

  7. Man, how much I wished we had quality Sonic & Mario toys in the 90′s but nope….better late than never, and I need new screens of these plushies, they look…odd, how big are they? 0_o

  8. Foxboy Mick says:

    Not bad… but I like the older plush lines.

  9. why am i getting this strange feeling these guys are gonna be the playable characters in the next sonic game? i don’t know why,

    • For goodness sake I hope you are right, we need more playable characters and these 5 all we need!

      • Yeah, the 6th can be a new character. I mean SA style. lol. A character who’s related to the plot that doesn’t need to return often except in party games.

        Or just get Cream, Eggman or Rouge. (Cream’s never been playable by herself in a plat former except the Sonic Advance 2 right? I think she’d be a decent character, what with that badass Cheese and all…)

        Otherwise, Sonic, Tails, Knuckles and Shadow are all we really need. (Oh yeah and Amy… she was decent in Sonic Adventure. lol)

  10. The Blue Striker says:

    I like the Sonic and Shadow plushies myself as I got both Sonic X ones, I can say that these versions are better mainly because on thing I don’t like about the Sonic Plushies from Sonic X is that his head too fat. However the Knuckles one here is…bad then again its mostly because I haven’t seen any other Knuckles plushie only the classic ones done by Impact.

  11. Sonic and Tails look great, the rest … meh.

    This is off topic from the news here, but weres the mash up!?

  14. bananaman922 says:

    Yay, plushies. Off topic here, but I beat Sonic Adventure 2 HD in December and I moved the Xbox into my room, hooked it up to my new TV……. I quote the Xbox: “There is no previous save file detected. Would you like to start one?” All my emblems, progress, and Chao, GONE. Anyway……. PLERSHEZ
