NKOK Teases New Sonic Toys

At the start of the year, you might remember how toy maker NKOK dropped hints that they were making a new line of Sonic toys based off Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed? Well following an update to their website, we can confirm that this is indeed the case as well as one or two other suprises.

Their website not only depicts the older toys, but also has listings for several new products, unfortunately none of which had images to acompany them. However, the descriptions give you a very good idea as to what to expect.

Slot Car Racing Toys

Battery Opperated Sonic & Shadow Slot Car Race Set

Battery Opperated Sonic & Tails Slot Car Race Set. (Approximately 8 feet of track)

Hand Crank Generator Sonic & Shadow Super Loop Set (This product is based on ASRT vehicles)

Light & Sound Pullback Vehicles

Pullback ASRT Sonic.

Pullback ASRT Tails.

Pullback ASRT Shadow.

As mentioned before, no images acompany the descriptions, however, the fact that these products are on the website would suggest licensing permission has been granted. No price or release dates were given, however, typically, NKOK toys have been released worldwide.

More All-Stars Racing Toys: RC & Slot Cars Coming

Toy company NKOK has acquired the rights to SEGA characters through a licensing agreement with SEGA of America.  The company will use their new gain to produce a line of RC cars and slot car racing sets based on the upcoming Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing. President of NKOK comments:
