Fresh from New York Toy Fair, and Tomy’s official Facebook page comes our first ever look at Sonic Boom’s merchandise: the action figure line!
As you can see, only Sonic, Tails and Amy are shown here with no sign of Knuckles, Dr. Eggman or even any accessories to be packaged in with the toys. The figures look to have some basic articulation in the arms, legs and head.
The toys shown also look to be early prototypes, featuring only basic paint schemes and figure moulds. This is probably evidence that the line is still in fairly early development and these figures will probably be updated, and the rest will be shown later on.
The picture’s description also held another interesting tidbit of information:
“TOMY, the new master toy partner for Sonic, is proud to show off the first of many great new Sonic toys at New York Toy Fair!”
This would mean that the principle creator of Sonic toys in the future now lies with Tomy, and NOT with the current producers Jazwares… Interesting. Also interesting is that Tomy also sounds to be planning a lot more for Sonic in the future. Very promising stuff!
We will keep our eyes on the New York toy fair to see if further images surface!
A big thanks to Paper Mache CC14 on SSMB for bringing this to our attention.
