At Saturdays Weston Super Sonic convention, First 4 Figures dropped one heck of a surprise. Sitting in the corner of the room was a display case with a black sheet covering a mystery object. When the announcement came a wave of ‘Oh god, I want one’ seemed to echo around the room.
Joining their Modern Sonic the Hedgehog range is Super Sonic, and oh boy this is a very impressive piece.
The scene depicts the climax from Sonic Adventure in which Super Sonic faces off against perfect Chaos. The base is a flooded station square, around the base are details of water pipes and underneath the flood waters you can just make out details of the road. Super Sonic himself appears to be flying into the scene.
This version was the exclusive variant which includes some lighting features and these are very impressive. The lighting seems to follow Sonic further giving the impression of movement. However it has an added effect. The lighting shines through the water which emits a green/blue water effect onto Super Sonic’s entire body.
The effect looks amazingly cool when viewed in a darkened environment.
The statue is currently in the prototype stage so parts of it will change. The rep told me that one confirmed change will be his spikes, but these are minor details to make them appear individual as opposed to being congealed.
No price details were given, however pre-orders will open some time in 2015.
We’ll let you know when more details are revealed.
