I think it’s safe to say we’ve ALL been waiting for Infinite.
Jakks Pacific speeds ahead with new Sonic figures and playsets coming this year. Sonic Merch News on Twitter dug up several new Entertainment Earth pre-orders, including 4″ Infinite and Cream, several 2.5″ re-releases like Rouge and Chao, and a new “Level Clear Diorama Playset.” Each have an estimated release of May.
Despite Infinite’s status as the adorable, toyetic hearthrob of the franchise, his merch presence has been extremely limited. Similarly, Cream has been MIA from figurines since the Sonic X toy line. So if you’re a collector of the 4″ line, or merely trying to snag your unsung favorite, keep an eye out in a few months.
The star of the upcoming sets, however, is the Level Clear Diorama set, containing an… unusually tall goal post (which no pictures show the reverse of), an animal prison capsule (a good match for the Eggcraft set), Flicky, Pocky, and of course, a 4″ Sonic himself.
Finally, for those who just can’t wait, Amazon is carrying a set of two electronic rings. Each are motion activated to make the iconic sound when picked up, and have a clear plastic base to stand it upright. The set is available now for $20.
