Weston Super Sonic, the Sonic Convention that debuted two years ago in Weston Super-Mare, England is returning once again for a brand spanking new convention in 2016.

After a brilliant event earlier this year, the convention only needs £1000 to get the event up and running, and is already promising a guest, numerous traders and competitions.

Backers can also get their hands on numerous rewards for backing the event including entry to the event, T-shirts, pin badges and an entry into a raffle for a 20th Anniversary Sonic statue, courtesy of Sonic Merchandise.

Stretch goals are also in place, allowing attendees to get new gift bags for attending, as well as the ability to have more guests attend.

At the time of writing, the project is already nearly quarter of the way there! Pledge your support, and help the convention to put on another awesome show!

Back the convention’s kickstarter here!

  1. I have that exact Super Sonic plush! Coolness! 😀 I wish I could go to these conventions.

  2. Absolutely nothing against Weston Super Sonic, but I feel that kickstarters are just running rampant these days, like, EVERYONE has a kickstarter. Kickstarters are good, but they shouldn’t be overused.

  3. What the hack why is Super Sonic Plushy is sitting on the sand of Western Super Sonic Event 2016 it’s like umm they place it Super Sonic Plushy photo where it’s local here in England.

    1. Sorry, what are you asking? He’s on the sand of Weston Super Mare, the locations of Weston Super Sonic, because that’s the topic of the article. That location also is in England so not sure where the confusion is there…

  4. On one hand I wish I could go because, well, any Sonic event is better than nothing to me since I never get to go to any social events as we don’t get any of the type I would enjoy locally to me but on the other hand, I know this event mostly relates to the Fleetway comics which I personally don’t like.

    1. Weston Super Sonic is not an exclusively Fleetway event. The reason it was a major part of 2015 is because in the UK it is a lot easier to get together special guests from Sonic the Comic than it would be to get people who worked on the games from Japan or people who work on the Archie series in America.

      In 2015 we had a special Skype interview with Mike Pollock. We also had Duncan Gutteridge join us, who worked on a lot of the really famous pieces of classic art we see around.

      JonoD is correct with the reason we pick Fleetway super. He is the English version of Super Sonic that as lot of us grew up with and is a bit of a fan favourite. So it only seemed right for him to be represented at a Super Sonic event.
