The second wave of Jakks Pacific 7” Sonic plushes, which the company first revealed last year, is finally starting to make its way to stores. Although the plushes were supposed to hit stores on July 29, they have been hard to come by so far. They’ve mostly been appearing at online retailers like Toywiz, ToyZany, and eBay at inflated prices of between $20-$40 (for reference, the MSRP is $10.99).
These plushes are slowly beginning to appear at brick and mortar retailers…at least in the UK. Sonic youtuber Dave Luty was able to get his hands on a Mighty plush, which he posted pictures of on Twitter. Check them out in the embedded tweet below:

According to Luty, his store only had the one. Given the high prices for these plushes elsewhere, it would appear that availability is pretty limited, at least for now. With a third wave that also includes Mighty slated for September, hopefully they will become more available soon. I know some of us, myself included, have been waiting 25 years for a Mighty plush, and that wait may be coming to an end soon.
