The companies that brought you the incredible “Sonic the Hedgehog Chess” and squeezable Sonic figures, Jetix Consumer Products and Gaya Entertainment, have expanded their licensing agreement for more Sonic toys. CEO of Gaya Entertainment, Andre Schmitz, said:
“We are very proud to announce the teaming up of Jetix and Gaya Entertainment for this project. 2009 will be an important year for everybody´s favorite Hedgehog and being a part of it is highly appreciated. With our product line-up for Sonic, we intend to offer something for everyone, may it be old or young.”
Georg Liedmeier, licensing manager at Jetix Consumer Products also spoke:
“Jetix is looking forward to working with Gaya Entertainment and delivering quality products from one of its most cherished franchises to both fans of the series and model collectors alike.”
The company will be rolling out new collectibles by the end of May, but has yet to find a UK distributor. Three companies are in talks with Jetix and Gaya for UK distribution.
