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!
Funko Pop! fans heading to E3 this year will undoubtedly be giddy with delight at the prospect of getting their hands on a very exclusive figure of Super Shadow, who will be exclusive to the LA show taking place next month.
If you are attending the show you will have to be quick however; only 1500 of the figures will be produced, and with Funko’s current popularity will likely sell out quickly!
Funko have announced a new range of Funko Pop products for the Sonic franchise. This will be the first addition to the line since the original set way back in 2013.
First up, there will be a Funko Pop keychain for Sonic with his gold ring, so if you want Sonic on the go there’s another option right here.
For the regular Funko Pop Vinyl line, there’s a much larger range of figures to get, although the amount of characters covered is the same as last time. Aside from the same Sonic with gold ring, the standard line also includes Sonic with a Chaos Emerald, Shadow the Hedgehog and Dr Eggman.
There will also be three figures that are exclusive to certain retailers. A glow-in-the-dark version of Sonic and ring will be exclusive to Toys R’ Us, Super Sonic will be exclusive to Gamestop and Shadow with a Dark Chao will be exclusive to Hot Topic.
No price point has been given for the figures or keychain, but it’s likely to be comparable to their other products. The slated release date for all of these is in December. If it comes out fast enough in the month, you might have another potential stocking filler in time for Christmas!

Please note that the images given are not final.
An upcoming retail list from Gamestop has somehow leaked, and it has listings for four brand new Sonic the Hedgehog Funko Pops!
There are no images of the products themselves right now (as it is just a very early listing), but we know what the figures will be if they come out. They are as follows;
- Sonic with Ring.
- Sonic with Emerald (presumably a Chaos Emerald)
- Shadow the Hedgehog
- Dr. Eggman
The first two may just be new accessories added to the old Sonic Funko Pop that came out all the way back in 2013, but the last two would certainly be brand new, as the original line only had Tails and Knuckles in addition to Sonic.
If these do make it to store shelves, you may want to make a point of getting them while you can, as the old Funko Pops can fetch prices upwards of $100. We will be keeping an eye out for more news on the matter.
