SEGA’s speedy blue mascot and friends still on the move…
He speedy blue hedgehog from the ’90s has come a long way, and with a growing cast of new enemies and allies, there is no stopping Sonic. Sonic the Hedgehog became SEGA’s iconic mascot during the heydays of the 64 bit “Genesis” video game console and he is still as popular, if not more so, today. Although many iconic video game characters have been transformed into action figures, none have had such a vast toy line as Sonic has. Today we take a look at some of the most recent 3-inch Sonic action figure releases and decipher the secret behind this highly successful toy line.
PACKAGING: The single carded Sonic action figures are packaged in a traditional blister card surrounded by eye-catching full-color graphics on the front. The plastic clamshell features the Sonic logo at the bottom making the action figure within fully visible. The back of the package features images of all the other Sonic figures available in the collection. The blister card art and oversize and design look great and are sure to be a hit with mint-on-card collectors.
SCULPT/ARTICULATION: Regardless of their petite size of three inches, the Sonic figures feature extremely detailed sculpts and an abundant level of articulation. The figures can be displayed in a vast amount of poses thanks to the generously-distributed articulation points on the body.
Out of the four figures I received I only had posing issues with the Werehog figure but his production batch code was different from the rest which indicates that the QC has really improved on this line. The Knuckles, Sonic, and Shadow figures had very tight joints and held their poses quite well.
The Sonic figures feature the following articulation joints: Ball-socket head, shoulders, and legs; Swivel wrists, ankles and waist; Hinged elbows and knees.
PAINT: The Sonic figures are colored very well with little to no paint misapplications. The colors are vibrant breathe life into each different figure.
