All of the above are pretty awesome, but come on! Sonic 1 greetings cards! How awesome is that? If you don’t particularly feel like indulging yourself in more Sonic, all of the above are available with artwork from other classic SEGA games. The full list is as follows:

  • Sonic the Hedgehog
  • Alex Kidd and the Enchanted Castle

Paladone to release a LOAD of new Sonic items!

Pixel Bricks

Paladone, a gift supplier with a whole range of different products has recently unveiled a whole slew of new Sonic the Hedgehog inspired merchandise. Several new items have been made available for pre-order courtesy of the UK based retailer Forbidden Planet International.

The range, which covers a whole host of different items include:

Those Pixel Bricks… Somebody hold me!

Out of all of these though, there is still no sign of Paladone’s Sonic themed Doodle Jump figure, initially seen a few months back. Possibly something that will be seen later? Time will have to tell on that one.

Now, my wallet is due to become substantially lighter, so if you’ll excuse me…
