Can you believe that in three days time it will have been a whole 28 YEARS since the original Sonic the Hedgehog game launched on Sega Mega Drive? To celebrate, SEGA Japan is throwing a massive party at its Tokyo Joypolis arcade, on Sunday 23 June – and there will be special music events as well as awesome merchandise to collect. Take a look at what’s in store – you’ll want to check back on this page to check a livestream on the day too!

Have you ever baked a pizza, taken it out of the oven, and imagined that Sonic the Hedgehog was slicing it for you? I don’t mean like an underpaid Pizza Hut employee, I mean actually curling into his legendary spin attack and rationing out that cheesy goodness? …no? Just me? Well, maybe these fantasies will no longer be so niche, as SEGA has catered to the food utensil market with their upcoming Sonic-themed Pizza Cutter!
Can’t make it to E3? Don’t sweat it! We here at Sonic Stadium are at the event right now, and we’ve got some pictures. It may not be the same as being there…but it’s something, right?
Check out the photos, taken by our E3 team, below:
In case you can’t tell, that last image shows the genuine rock climbing wall SEGA has set up at the booth.
Also, check out this bonus photo of the shirt people get for playing the Mario & Sonic demo:
UPDATE: We’ve got more photos, this time of the SEGA Genesis Mini booth, taken by Dreadknux. The last one has a surprise cameo of SEGAbit’s own Kori Maru, dressed up as Virtua Fighter’s Akira! Check them out in the gallery below:
Also, Dreadknux was able to meet Hiroshi Nishiyama, artist for the Sonic Adventure series:
We may be updating this post with additional photos of SEGA’s booth throughout the event, so stay tuned.
Is it strange that the soundtrack for a game specifically meant for CD is on a vinyl record now? Can we call this Sonic Vinyl instead? Sonic Record? Who cares, because Sonic CD’s Japanese (and European) OST is available on record via Data Discs, and we’re ready to lay the wax and spin the sounds!
If you’ve had a hankering for a Sonic the Hedgehog breakfast cereal since Golden O’s made an appearance in the Team Sonic Racing infomercial launch trailer, Funko will soon be producing a Sonic-themed edition of FunkO’s, complete with blue rings!
Alongside the release of “MAXIMUM OVERDRIVE”, the 130-track soundtrack to the soon-to-be-released Team Sonic Racing, comes Sonic Sound Team Director Jun Senoue‘s third installment of “The Works” compilation album series.
Don’t blink! Don’t think! Just go-go, go-go, g-g-g-g-go-go down to your local video store on May 28 to pick up Sonic X: The complete series on Region 2 SD Blu-Ray! (God, that was corny.)
The good folks at Disctek Media are bringing all 78 english language episodes in one volume. (Sorry Japanese sub fans, you’ll have to stick with Hulu for now.) This includes the extras from the DVD version as well as the original pitch video where the world of Sonic X had a lot less humans.
The Blu-Ray retails for $69.99, but you can pre-order it from rightstufanime right now for $45.47. Check out Brady Hartel’s Twitter for more info. In the meantime, here’s the cover.
In a surprise reveal at the Sonic SXSW panel, Sega announced a series of Team Sonic Racing products available via their official stores… Including items inspired by everybody’s favourite amphibian, Froggy!
Yes that is a Froggy shirt, and yes those are Froggy hats!
The full collection is available on the US Sega Store and you also get a free Froggy balloon when you order the Froggy items.
However the EU stores do not have the Froggy hats, and the shirts are technically crowdfunded, orders will only be fulfilled if a specific unknown number of people also order the item.
You can shop until you drop via the following links.
The latest photo out of this year’s New York Toy Fair has revealed yet more Sonic merchandise: a line of blindbox keychains from toy and accessories manufacturer Kidrobot. The keychains, scheduled to launch this July, feature twelve modern Sonic characters.
The photo, posted below, was originally taken by Twitter user @lemeeniram, though his account is currently gone as of this writing. Because of this, the photo and the above information came from Twitter user @DatPatMac.
“Blindboxes” are collectibles that are sold in packaging that doesn’t indicate which collectible is inside. This means you may be buying more than twelve if you want the whole set.
With New York Toy Fair in full swing this weekend, the news on new Sonic the Hedgehog toys has come thick and fast – and it looks like the new JAKKS Pacific toy line up will include the first ever official Ray and Mighty figures!
JAKKS Pacific, the children’s toy company behind such toy lines such as WWE and World of Nintendo action figures, have today announced that it has commenced a global toy licensing deal with SEGA of America to produce Sonic the Hedgehog branded toys in a multi-year contract.
Is it just my imagination… Or does Japan get really amazing collectors/limited edition Sonic games?
Well Team Sonic Racing is no exception, whilst only a standard release has been confirmed for the west, Japan is getting a huge selection of limited and collectors editions!
The first edition is the “Team Sonic Racing” Trailer Music Selection” Version which comes with a small MP3 OST. Depending on the retailer you purchase it from, you also get a booklet and some acrylic ornaments.
But the most impressive edition is the DX Pack which comes with everything you see in this image. priced at 13,590 Yen (£93), the edition comes with the following…
1 game software (PlayStation 4 version or Nintendo Switch version)
Sonic Vs Shadow Shot Glass
3D Crystal Cube!
Yes you read that right, this edition includes a crystal cube! However no images of the cube have been made available at present.
Other collectors editions comes with the same stuff, but certain items are not included depending on the version you get.
It’s that festive time of year again! As always, we at TSS won’t be able to sleep on Christmas eve as we are too excited thinking about the Sonic the Hedgehog merchandise Santa will be bringing us in his sleigh! We must have been particularly good this year (we’ve only been completing hero missions), as Europe and the UK now has it’s very own dedicated SEGA Shop crammed with new and exclusive merchandise.
We take a sneaky peak at some of the great Sonic gear on offer right now…
For the last few years, Tomy has been ‘the master toy partner’ for Sonic. Which has produced some really nice items as well as some products based on lesser used characters.
However as a consequence, a number of other companies have cut back on what they produce. One such company was GE Entertainment who used to produce a lot of really great plushies on a lot of the secondary and even retired cast.
Well it looks like GE are back in the plush game.
Confirming on twitter, the company will produce 3 new plushies for 2019. The first two are a standard Sonic and Super Sonic plush, shaped like a ball.
The third… is a 21″ Rouge the Bat plush!
21 inches is just over 53cm making it a very big plush indeed!
No other details were confirmed, but given how extensive GE were when they used to make Sonic plushies, we’ll be keeping a close eye on this one!
Oh…..My….God! An episode of Sonic Talk that’s up just days after being recorded rather than weeks?!! That’s insane!!
Join Jason, Alex, GX and our special-guest-maybe-new-fourth-chair Queen Misty Lakes as we discuss the latest games, Sonic’s upcoming movie and his cameo in Ralph Breaks The Internet. We also discuss the delay of Team Sonic Racing and how everyone in the Sonic Universe might have a slight cameo in Super Smash Bros Ultimate thanks to the new spirit mode. Listen in and join the fun!
Despite frequent delays, it looks like more Sonic figures will be joining the Totaku toy line. Listings have appeared at both Gamestop and the official Totaku website which shows both Tails and Knuckles joining the figure line. Continue reading Tails & Knuckles To Get Totaku Figures
The Totaku figure range came seemingly out of nowhere, what started with characters associated with Playstation games has slowly grown to include more third party franchises with other exclusive characters for specific systems promised in the future.
Shortly after their reveal, Think Geek began teasing that a Sonic figure would be joining the line, before it was eventually revealed at Toy Fair 2018 and had an estimated release date of around the middle of the year.
But for fans who pre-ordered the figure, there has been a long wait and silence with regards to its release. The figure has undergone numerous delays and silence with regards to its status.
But it now looks like things are happening. Twitter user Juvi Luna noticed that the official Totaku website has now updated to say that the figure will now release in September and on closer inspection it also appears to have been re-designed slightly.
After many months of delays, and no word from stores or totaku themselves, the Sonic totaku finally has a tentative release month! It also should be noted that the quality of the figure has been upgraded, along with the skin and brown of the base being lightened. @sonicstadiumpic.twitter.com/EG5ktIkygy
