PlayStation recently announced a brand new line of collectible figures called ‘Totaku’, featuring characters from the Sony gaming brand’s illustrious history. But if whispers from the London Toy Fair are to be believed, SEGA’s own Sonic the Hedgehog could feature in a second wave of mini-statues.
Twitter user ‘My Shiny Toy Robots’ reports that the blue blur will indeed be making an appearance as one of many third-party characters to get the Totaku treatment. No pictures of the Sonic model are allowed to be shown, apparently, but official branding for the Totaku line features a familiar-looking silhouette…
Can you see it? Ain’t nobody else got that finger-wagging swag.
Sony’s PlayStation brand announced the ‘Totaku‘ figures earlier this week, in an apparent attempt to jump on board the ‘amiibo’ train. Unlike Nintendo’s collectibles, however, Totaku do not feature any NFC functionality and do not work with any PlayStation games. They’re just nice little things to look at. Which we can totally get behind, by the way.
#Totaku on display! These things are a lot nicer in person than I expected (LOVE Parappa and Crash!). Also Sonic the Hedgehog, Jin Kazama and Evan Pettiwhisker Tildrum coming in wave 2! (No pics allowed sorry!) pic.twitter.com/jXpeqwzyeY
