Sonic the Hedgehog will live forever, and this new Nedoroid figure is the perfect way to celebrate the 20th birthday of this immortal video game icon.
This awesome figure comes with both standing and classic running poses, and optional parts include an item box, a point marker goal post, and a Chaos Emerald for maximum nostalgia factor. The PVC and ABS figure measure 10cm (3.9") tall.
Why in the hell would you shop out the piece at his foot?
The pivot-bits kinda make it look like he has a conspicuous bulge in the fourth image. By which of course I mean I don't see the point in these, they look cheap and nasty and way too expensive. Honestly, anyone buying this is a huge sucker. Of nobs.

To date, two acts of Sonic merchandise remain my pride and joy:
-My acquisition of a 5' Shadow plush -My completion of my StH collection (more or less)
Here's hoping I can find something more worthwhile than this. Not too difficult; I could probably find a fair share of toys at Toys R Us if I felt so inclined. Or at Gameworks. I demand one of their air hockey tables! (Which I heard have Sonic on them now awwww yeahhhh)
Oh I suppose I'll throw some pics of it up here. Since the prototype pics, they've added a seam around his head (I guess it wasn't cost productive to cast him in one or something), but it's barely noticeable. Forgive my shoddy photography. And all the pony and Skylanders in the background >_>;
I don't have time to do all of the props right now but yeah, there are LOTS: two stands (for the emerald and ring), a stand for Sonic, the emerald, the ring, the item box with five items, the extra arm and leg, the four extra hands, two extra faces, and the checkpoint.
Plus, I can do this with it:
Maybe I'll take a pic of him being chased by the GIANT METAL SONIC I have later >:]
