[UPDATE: Some Stickers Contain New Art]Sonic Sticker Collection Hits WH Smith Stores

UPDATE 5: Thanks to members at the SSMB(here and here) we’re now discovering that some of the stickers contain all new artwork of the various characters. /UPDATE 5 END

UPDATE 4: We’re getting more reports from the SSMB topic that the poster for shiny stickers that the sticker book mentions is missing and it now appears the sticker collection has no shiny stickers anyway. It looks like the shiny stickers and poster to hold them may be scrapped ideas which Factory Entertainment forgot to remove mention of in the book. /UPDATE 4 END

UPDATE 3:
We can now reveal thanks to Stasis that the book has sticker pages with profiles for the following characters (joint pages in bold) –
Sonic the Hedgehog (2 pages including Super Sonic and Sonic the Werehog), Miles “Tails” Prower, Amy Rose, Knuckles the Echidna, Big the Cat, Cream & Cheese, Dr.Eggman, Shadow the Hedgehog, Rouge the Bat, Silver the Hedgehog & Blaze the Cat, Vector the Crocodile, Espio the Chameleon & Charmy Bee, Jet the Hawk, Storm the Albatross & Wave the Swallow, Sonic Universe(2 pages including Gemerl, Emerl, Chaos, Tikal, Chao’s, E-123 Omega, E-102 Gamma, Metal Sonic, Eggman Nega, Marine and Captain Whisker & Johnny), Sonic & Tails, Sonic & Amy, Sonic & Knuckles, Dr.Eggman, Shadow & Rouge, Fulfilment. /UPDATE 3 END

UPDATE 2: The company behind the sticker collection is Factory Entertainment, they have a website here, if your book is missing the poster and you want to enquire about it you can find contact details at their site here. /UPDATE 2 END

UPDATE: Thanks to Nemain at the SSMB we have a link to an eBay auction selling the stickers, the seller states there are 140 stickers to collect. Stasis in the comments has informed us that he has picked up a copy of the book for £1.99 and confirms the 140 stickers total while also informing us of an advertisement in the book for the UK release of the Jazwares Sonic merchandise revealing a June release date for them. Thanks Nemain and Stasis.

Super Lombax at the SSMB informs that the book comes with a pull-out poster but unfortunately none of the books at her store had the pull-out poster for some reason. Stasis has also informed us that all 3 books at 3 seperate retailers in his area are also missing the poster which is used to hold the shiney stickers in the collecton. Look’s like this may be a problem at all retailers stocking the book./UPDATE END

The Sonic City Blognik has just been tipped off via their @SEGA Twitter account by user Adwil24 that a new Sonic Sticker Collection has been released in WH Smith stores which suggests it’s available in the UK and Ireland. This is the first official sticker collection in the UK since the Mega Drive days. No other info was given apart from the above photo, we’ll try to get our hands on one along with some stickers and report back.

  1. …and pay day is tomorrow… And I have to pay my rent at the Post Office INSIDE WH Smith…

    Oh man, this could not be more perfect.

  2. Oh no! This is one of those things that ends up costing a million pounds because you keep buying packs and packs of the stickers!

    Hmmm… lol I think I’ll photocopy the order forms and send them off!

  3. Pay day tomorrow! We should set up a topic in the market place where we can swap doubles and rares lol I never complated my old sticker album.

  4. Wait a second, isn’t that the pose Sonic has in the Sonic suite?
    The poses of the others are also new.
    Quite odd but that’s just me going crazy, because of the lack of updates.

  5. those pictures of Sonic, Amy and Tails are all on the Twitter background, I haven’t been able to find them anywhere else for my artwork collection.

  6. OH MY GOD, I almost never get excited about Sonic merchandise but, largely based on a love of these kinds of albums when I was a kid, my immediate reaction to this is that I must buy this and complete it.

    I’m 25 years old. Is that wrong?

  7. No Liquidshade, but it is so wrong that it’s right. I’m 25 too and if I were in the UK I’d be all over this.

  8. Good. Although I’m still kind of hoping that this album and its sticker packs can also be purchased online.

    Alternatively, I suppose I could pay a small child to go in and buy some for me. Like the inverse of when kids want people to buy them alcohol.

  9. @ All of the above
    These are the art pieces made for the Sonic suite and the Sonic Spinball roller coaster at Alton Towers. You see them on the cars and the various walls and things around the roller coaster’s spot in the park. I’ve not seen them anywhere else so I assume as those were the first places they turned up they were made for those.

    I’ve just been to my local WH Smith, ASDA, HMV, newsagent, GAME and Gamestation but couldn’t find the sticker book or stickers anywhere. I’ll likely be going to the shopping centre again tomorrow so I’ll check again then.

  10. Actually no, these are Sonic Channel CG renders from about 18 months back to my knowledge.

  11. Just got one from my local shop 🙂 They are £1.99 each. There are 140 sticker spaces, and the album mentions the Jazware figures available over here from June. The shop had not been sent any sticker packs however. I’ll hopefully have some photos to show in a while.

  12. Like I said those pictures of Sonic, Tails and Amy are from the Segasonic twitter background. Knuckles is on that background too, but his picture can also be found on Sonic channel. That Shadow artwork looks new though.

    Cool, 140 stickers. I sure hope they aren’t just screenshots, that would be lame. Box art and character art, those would make cool stickers. Think about it, there’s like what about 65 sonic games (rough estimate) a sticker of every boxart would be a pretty cool collection.

    I really hope they release these in the US. I need a cool sonic sticker to put on my laptop.

  13. I love that new Jazwares stuff is coming in June, but it gets really stupid to not be able to find the three inch figures at my Toys R Us yet… I really hope that the figures hit other stores soon like Target or something like that because I am really getting ticked at not being able to find them yet.

  14. I still have my Sonic 3 sticker album from Panini although In ever completed it ;9

    Just bought this new book on ebay and a job lot of stickers.

  15. @ Future
    This is for Jazwares stuff coming to the UK at long last in June so it may not necessarily be new stuff.

  16. @ T-Bird
    What? Pack of stickers or books with all stickers?
    Knowing you, I’d say the later.

  17. That’s a lot of characters… I’d rather just have a whole load of the more major characters if I were to actually use them as stickers.

    But a cool piece of merchandise nonetheless.

  18. Oooooo loving the sound of this! That cover looks fantastic, really digging the style, can’t wait to have a look through. I’ll make sure to try and pick this up tomorrow at my local Smithy.
    Cheers for the heads up!

  19. Oh how I wish I lived in the UK! I hope they get delivered to Ireland at some stage!

    I have that artwork of Shadow and Knuckles, I think they are from Rivals, though the one of Shadow has him in his Super form, but in that exact pose.

  20. *drooling* I wish I have one. I’m not that childish to collect stickers but this one… I WAAAAAAAAAAAANT!
    I wish it will be published on Hungary.

  21. @Eggman123: Probably both knowing me. I’ll not tell my bank manager. If I see any I’ll buy a big bulk load of them and throw some on the SSMB market place – give you internationals a chance to own some stuffs :3

  22. Bit disappointed by the fact that it’s JUST characters actually. I was hoping more for a mix of characters, enemies, screenshots, boxarts, etc. Kind of like the cards you collect in the Sonic Rivals games. Oh well 😐

  23. WHSmith in Eastleigh, you disappoint me.

    Next stop, Southampton and Winchester. I’m wondering if it hasn’t reached all parts of the country yet.

  24. Before reading the whole thing, the characters names that are in bold are the ones I thought were getting an action figure 😛
    So they’re bringing back the ol’ sticker books huh? I still have the original Sonic one… in German

  25. Before you guys rush out ad buy these, you might want to read the SSMB topic about this because this is slowly looking like a big rip off if you ask me.

  26. I just went and picked up 3 packets in the Southampton WHSmiths, but they didn’t have the album for some reason :/

  27. Just bought the book and £3 worth of stickers! Fuck I forgot how hard it is to peel the stickers off…it’s been over 10 years since i’ve had one!

  28. @ bcdcdude :same here!

    Lucky the one in Kirky sells a good deal! 4 packs with no doublers. 20 down, 120 to go!

  29. i’ve finished the book xD well, sorata, i need fifty more and im just wait for them to come in the post from factory entertainment

  30. i’ve finished the book xD well, sorta, i need fifty more and im just wait for them to come in the post from factory entertainment
