Growing up in the 90’s, I can remember seeing adverts for a very unique toy, Stretch Armstrong, he was a super hero who in the adverts would stop crime by using his powers to stretch, bit like Mr Fantastic from The Fantastic Four, only he later got a Dog and then a dedicated villain.

According to Toys ‘R’ Us’ weekly newspaper ad, if you purchase the DS version of Sonic & Sonic SEGA Sonic All-Sonic-Stars Sonic Racing featuring Sonic, you’ll get a free Sonic toy (valued at a whopping $4.99).
The deal only lasts through February 27th until 5 PM.[via Toys ‘R’ Us]
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:
“Sega has had a wonderful history of introducing exciting brands and characters to gaming audiences around the world. With the release of Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing we’re extremely excited to bring these evergreen characters to life through our product offering,”
NKOK currently plans to release products in North America around the game’s launch in early 2010.[Via Playthings]
This is quite something – Sega haven’t put this much pump into a Sonic game in a long time. There’s even proper merchandise to be had, with this eBay auction popping up for a Sonic the Werehog action figure. Sold at Toys R’ Us in America for a period of time, these are very hard to find according to the seller. They’re apparently different from the Australian pre-order figures, but we won’t know for sure unless someone does a comparison or two (that’s your challenge, Aussie readers! Get in touch!).
We don’t know if these will ever come to Britain (AAUK has responded with a stinging ‘no’), or anywhere outside of America in fact. At this time there are two separate auctions for about $40. So if you’ve got bottomless pockets and can’t wait for a bit of early Unleashed action, then what better to do then invest in a pristine Werehog?
