This is a bit of sad news if you’ve been collecting the character plush toys that GE Animation have been putting out; they have confirmed that as of April 2017 they will no longer have the Sonic licence, therefore they will not be producing any new plushes.
GE Animation’s range became known for the sheer range of franchise favourites that became realised in a plush form, including Shadow, Amy, Rouge, Big, Charmy, Chaos 0 and Jet just to name a few. They also did other miscellaneous products such as hats and mugs.
Within the same confirmation, it appears GE Animation confirmed that the licence was now with Tomy, so they’ve at least got the opportunity to continue with what they were doing on top of handling the Boom licence. In addition, there are still the various products that were revealed at the Toy Fair just last month to look forward to, as well as the F4F Silver up for pre-order, so it’s still a good time to be a collector.
