New Figures from Sonic the Hedgehog!

Boasting 12 points of articulation and a smooth metallic finish, the 10-inch Deluxe Metal Sonic figure is one that should delight fans of the speedy blue hedgehog and his franchise.

He’s one of the new Sonic figures we’ve gotten in-stock and ready to go, joining a bunch of 3- and 6-inch figures including mini vehicles, Silver the Hedgehog, Knuckles (super poser and 3-inch) and Shadow the Hedgehog, plus many, many more. They’re all from Jazwares, who have been the leading provider of all things Sonic in recent years, producing high-quality items that capture all the adventure and character of the massively popular and long-lasting series. Check ’em out!

But wait! There’s even more good news for fans, back from E3. Remember this from February?

Well, it seems like Sega’s almost ready to send it our way. Here’s the report from Pcmag.com!

LOS ANGELES – Sega displayed a slew of Sonic the Hedgehog games at E3 2010, including “Sonic Colors DS” and “Sonic Colors Wii,” but it was the upcoming “Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1” that generated the most buzz at Sega’s booth.

“Sonic 4” is throwback to the 16-bit Sonic games that helped the Genesis compete with the Super NES in the early to mid 1990’s. There aren’t any silly side characters, no werewolf transformations, or black Sonic clones with guns. Instead, the game was remarkably simplistic and quite refreshing.

Gameplay is classic Sonic. In our hands-on time with the game, we found it remarkably similar to the original “Sonic the Hedgehog.” Sonic plods along until momentum is gained, sending him whizzing through loops, over hills, and other familiar Sonic locales. The 1080p HD graphics are appropriately bright and cheery, and the music is delightful.


“Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1” will be available in late summer for the PS3 and Xbox 360.
