Have Sonic Blare Your Favorite Music With This New Plush

Ever wanted to make Jimmy Buffet classic “Cheeseburger in Paradise” play out of a Sonic thing? Or how about “Defying Gravity” from the Broadway musical hit Wicked? Maybe “Crazy Noisey Bizarre Town,” objectively the best Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure anime opening? Well good news, because now you can play these and more from a new Sonic plush currently only available in Mexico!

Images for this plush have been slowly circulating online, but our source is twitter account @SONICJENNY, who also seems to have the most images. This new Sonic plush and speaker features Bluetooth capability with a range of ten feet, as well as an audio cable input, a USB port, and an SD cart slot, so you’ll be able to play music on it with just about anything. Going by SONICJENNY’s twitter thread, the plush is around a foot long, has speakers in its feet, and sells for around $50. Check out the images below:

As of this writing, we are not aware of any way to obtain this plush online, as it seems to only be available via physical stores in Mexico. Even the manufacturer does not appear to be obvious from the packaging.

Hopefully, this plush will eventually be available elsewhere, so we can all enjoy the 1986 hit “Rock Me Amadeus” by Falco through a cute Sonic plush doll.

The Sonic Mania LEGO Ideas Design Has Been Officially Approved!

LEGO Ideas has announced that the Sonic Mania – Green Hill design has been approved for development and will become an official LEGO set!

Designed by long-time Sonic fan Toastergrl (who we interviewed almost two years ago), the set reached the required 10,000 votes to be considered by LEGO’s internal review team for production on March 10th 2020. It ended up in the May 2020 round of submissions along with 25 other very impressive designs.

The results for that round were announced in September 2020…except for the Sonic Mania design, which required further review for the team to determine if it could be made or not. This meant an extra four months to wait to find out its fate.

Now the September 2020 results have been announced, and it has also been revealed that the Sonic Mania design has finally been approved! This means that it will go through LEGO’s own designers to see if there are any changes or improvements they want to make to the design before putting it in production, then it will hit store shelves where you can add LEGO Sonic to your collection (especially if you missed out on the LEGO Dimensions level pack way back in 2016).

A huge congratulations to Toastergrl, who I imagine must be chuffed about her idea being made a reality given her history with both Sonic and LEGO. Everyone else might want to leave some money aside to pick this up when this becomes available!

Please note that the final set design may differ from the LEGO Ideas submission. If you want a refresher on the original project, the LEGO Ideas page for it is still up on the site.

As of now, it is unknown when the finalised set will be revealed and released. But as soon as we get word from LEGO, we’ll be sure to let you know!

Funko Reveals Some of its Sonic 30th Anniversary Pop! Figures

Funko has given us our first look at what they have in store for Sonic’s anniversary next year: new Silver and classic Sonic figurines. The regular versions of these figurines will be available exclusively at FYE for $12 each. Meanwhile, special editions of these figures are exclusive to two other retailers: the “flocked” (or fuzzy) version of Classic Sonic will be sold exclusively at Funko’s own online store, while the Glow in the Dark version of Silver will only be found at Hot Topic.

According to the 30th anniversary merchandise announcement last week, we have much more, including a Tails figure, in store.

Check out all four figures below:

Second Wave of Jakks Pacific Sonic Plushes Trickling into Retailers

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.

For an up close look at the new Mighty, Amy Rose, and Super Sonic plushes, check out the gallery below:

Brave Wave’s Vinyl Sonic Adventure 1 & 2 Soundtracks Are Getting A Reprint

A few years have passed since Brave Wave’s vinyl releases of the Sonic Adventure and Sonic Adventure 2 soundtracks first came out. If you still haven’t gotten them yet, now’s your chance, because a reprint is on the way.

We don’t know how much they will cost. We also don’t know when they will release, although Brave Wave has suggested that fans “stay tuned for information on where to pre-order”. But we do know that the reprints will be 180g black vinyl.

If you need a refresher on what’s on the soundtracks, they contain the character theme songs and level tracks for both Adventure games. You’ll also get a comprehensive booklet featuring an interview with Jun Senoue and Sonic Team head Takashi Iizuka.

But that’s not all. Also included are song lyrics, character art and even Liner Notes by John Linneman of Digital Foundry. You’ll even receive a digital download with your physical copy, in case you’d prefer listening to the music that way. You will want to hurry, though. The original releases sold out, so it’s very likely that these will do the same.
