Huge “First Wave” of Sonic 30th Anniversary Merchandise Announced, Coming in December

Although the 2020 hasn’t been… great… so far, SEGA is intent on making the most of the rest of the year, with the announcement that a large number of new Sonic branded merchandise is heading to stores from December to celebrate the blue blur’s 30th anniversary. It’s going to be a Sonical Christmas!

According to a press release that SEGA sent The Sonic Stadium, the below products only cover the “first wave” of the company’s planned ’30th Anniversary Collection’. Starting in Holidays 2020 and running all throughout 2021, it looks like there’s going to be many good reasons to be a Sonic fan over the next year.

All of the 30th Anniversary products will be branded with the above new logo, which looks really cool! We especially like how the ‘0’ has taken the form of Sonic’s running feet there.

A list of the products for “Wave 1” can be found below. We already know of the Encyclopedia book, and some of the POP Figures have already been announced, but the King Ice jewelry and FiGPiN enamel pins we haven’t heard about before. No images have been shared, but as soon as we get further details of them we will report back!

  1. So now the chars that were locked behind classic stories get to be there, but this will get popular
    It’ll become a series
    And mighty and ray and the hooligans will stay there and only there.
    I hate this

  2. I fear that all of this stuff is going to be mediocre (like always) Just hope the marketing team have got their sh!t together! there is more to marketing than just stickin branding on stuff. Fingers crossed im wrong.

  3. I’m getting myself the G FUEL Sonic’s 30th Collector’s Box, a Sonic shirt with the 30th anniversary logo, and hopefully both of Sonic’s 30th anniversary Funko Pops.

  4. I will never understand how IDW gets the rights to republish these old Archie series like TMNT Adventures and Sonic. I guess the rights remain with the IP holders, cause I can’t imagine Archie being wholly open to this.
