UPDATE: I now got the full set of figures and have some new news on this toy set including pricing. Prices are actually pretty darn fair.

After heading to two different Toys R’ Us’s yesterday, I managed to snag some of the Sonic Boom action figures that have just been released from Tomy. Outside of my video review, I wanted to give a few more details.

Prices and figure sets. (Prices are from Toys R’ Us USA)

Single packs (Sticks, Sonic and Knuckles) $5.99  

Two packs (Sonic & Amy, Knuckles, & Tails, Orbot & Cubot) $7.99

Vehicle Sets (Eggman & Eggmobile, Knuckles & Hoverboard, Sonic & Spindash wheel)  $12.99

Sonic with Burnbot is $19.99

Check Toysrus.com for prices on other Sonic Boom toys and plushies.

There are two Sonic head molds. One with a frown (Sonic & Burnbot) and one with a devilish grin (Sonic & Amy)

Left Sonic – “I get bundled with Burnbot. You?” Right Sonic – “Pantiless Amy!”

 While the vehicle sets are in a plastic bubble, Sonic and Burnbot are in an open box.

Burnbot has been the toughest toy I’ve ever taken out of a package. He had the wire twist-ties going inside of his body and all around. Sonic was hard to get out as well.

No bumpy elbows means slightly less articulation, but more detail on the toys and they stand up much easier. Shoulders still have huge bumps for articulation. Not noticeable on Knuckles or Tails.

I had a hard time getting Eggman’s foot to fit in the peg in the Eggmobile as it was too close to a ramp in it’s floor.

All figures can stand pretty easily. Even Burnbot if you keep one claw down.

Except Orbot and Cubot who are basically PVC figures with no moveable joints and can barely stand if at all. Cubot was the worst and he’s a freakin’ cube! I added two black lego pieces that are hard to see to keep his head up enough to make him stand.

There was only one Sticks on the rack and plenty f Knuckles and Sonic single figures leading me to believe she may be single-packed (one per case) like many female figures tend to be.

While Amy has her skin color all the way around the back of her head behind her hair/quills, for some reason, her and Sticks are ummm…..”going commando”. I guess they ran out of white paint doing the sports tape.

As mentioned in juvi’s video review (check comments section), Tails “tails” start off as one and only split into two near the end.

That reviewer had a problem with Sticks’ head being wobbly, but mine’s fine.

While the paint detail of Sonic with his spin dash vehicle in a bubble was nicely detailed, for some reason, finding a Burnbot Sonic with a good paint job was next to impossible. Many having the white of his eyes bleeding onto his muzzle.

Neither Eggman or Knuckles can turn their heads

There are 3 different toys that come with a plain Sonic action figure.

Overall, they stand up well and look nice on a shelf but lack articulation (which may be a good thing in this case) and the paint detail can be a bit off (or none in the case of poor Amy and Sticks undergarments).
