THUNDERBOX Reveals New Sonic the Hedgehog Fashion Range

Tuesday, April 24th, 2018

After previously teasing a collaboration with the franchise, Japanese streetwear brand THUNDERBOX has now revealed its new range of Sonic the Hedgehog apparel.

You can catch a full gallery of the range below. It’s somewhat reminiscent of the fantastic DropDead x Sonic range we got here in the UK, and we’re definitely down for that Eggman shirt. However as we mentioned in our last article, sadly THUNDERBOX do not offer worldwide shipping from their site. If you’ve got a friend in Japan, now’s the time to call in a favour.

Japanese Fashion Brand THUNDERBOX Announce Sonic the Hedgehog Collaboration

Wednesday, April 11th, 2018

Streetwear-based fashion brand THUNDERBOX has announced some kind of collaboration with the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise. Currently there’s no information on what the collaboration will entail in terms of merchandise, but it’s a fair guess that there’ll be some apparel involved. The line is set to debut on April 25th, at a Summer Exhibition running until April 30th. The location of this exhibition is referred to as a “Mystery Store” – perhaps there’ll be some kind of pop-up store event held?

For those unaware, THUNDERBOX is a line from designer Tsuyoshi Morita. They’re no stranger to game-based designs – in fact, their brand practically revolves around it, with clothing adorned by the likes of NES Zappers, Kunio-Kun and Akira nods making up much of their collection. Unfortunately, the THUNDERBOX online store doesn’t seem to offer worldwide shipping – so if these items become available on there, getting your hands on them may still be somewhat tricky.

Wayo Records are working in collaboration with Wave Master and their first release with them is a 3CD soundtrack for Sonic Forces called ‘A Hero Will Rise’. This soundtrack contains the same content as SEGA Japan’s ‘A Hero Will Rise’ soundtrack and there’s currently no plans to release the now Japan exclusive, Sonic Forces Vocal Traxx: On The Edge CD.

The soundtrack can be ordered directly from Wayo Records’s store for €25.00 and the label ships worldwide. The soundtrack also comes with a bonus sticker and poster.

“SEGA Master System: a visual compendium” on the way from Bitmap Books, Kickstarter Launches May 7th

Sunday, March 25th, 2018

The latest in Bitmap Books’ acclaimed Visual Compendium series is on the way – and it’ll centre on SEGA’s 8-bit machine, the SEGA Master System.

Bitmap’s previous works have included visual compendiums for the Super Nintendo and Commodore 64, as well as artbooks centered on arcade games and an upcoming collection of NeoGeo visuals. Apparently, SEGA are actually involved with this book – making it the first somewhat official entry in the series. There’ll be a Kickstarter campaign to get the book made, starting May 7th.

The Master System was a surprisingly strong contender in the UK, so we’re always happy to see it get some love. It’ll be interesting to see how the book explores SEGA’s unique alternatives to Nintendo’s output – as well as if it’ll delve into the system’s staggering popularity in Brazil.

Sonic the Hedgehog: Crash Course Board Game from IDW Now Available to Pre-Order

Friday, March 9th, 2018

If one Sonic board game isn’t enough for you, good news  there’s another on the way! IDW Games’ Sonic the Hedgehog: Crash Course is now available to pre-order from Game Nerdz.

The game takes a different approach compared to the recent Sonic Battle Racers board game – in that the theme is based around Classic Sonic, with rather cute minifigures of Sonic, Tails, Knuckles and Dr. Eggman included. There’s also some shiny new Classic Sonic art, and it all looks like it stepped right out of the 90’s. Essentially, whoever collects the most Chaos Emeralds in a game wins. It includes the following:

Contains:

  • 60 Item Tokens
  • 24 Chaos Emerald Tokens
  • 12 Damage Tokens
  • 4 Extra Life Tokens
  • 10 Track Tiles
  • 4 Character Tiles
  • 1 Reference Tile
  • 4 Pre-painted Miniatures
  • 1 Rulebook

Currently the game is discounted on Game Nerdz site, down to $18.97. Unfortunately, the site only offers US shipping, so it remains to be seen whether the game makes its way to other areas in the future.

Data Discs have announced their next vinyl release in collaboration with SEGA Japan, and it’s a big one – After Burner II!

In addition, the second disc will feature three re-arranged tracks from the SEGA Sound Team (performed in 1988) as well as a medley by the current incarnation of the group, the SEGA Sound Unit [H.]. The set also comes with a poster of the game’s iconic artwork, showing the F-14 Tomcat – this art has been re-licensed just for this release!

Pre-orders go live on Saturday 24th February, with all versions of the soundtrack priced at £24.99. The release date itself is set for March 31st.

Diamond Select Toys reveal new Sonic the Hedgehog figures, including statues and Minimates

Sunday, February 18th, 2018

A video from ToyChestNews has given us our first glimpse of Diamond Select Toys’ new range of Sonic the Hedgehog figures, including statues of Sonic and Tails and a wide-ranging assortment of “Minimates” figures.

Currently, there’s only concrete details on the Minimates – they’ll retail for $24.99 as a boxset, including Sonic, Tails, Amy, Dr Eggman, Cream & Cheese, and Super Sonic. One thing that isn’t 100% clear is whether this information is geared towards retailers though. The statues of Sonic and Tails on show are apparently due to debut at Gamestop stores, and are currently pending approval.

We’ll keep an eye out for any future developments on Diamond’s new Sonic range, particularly concerning pricing for those rather lovely statues – so stay tuned. Full size images are available by clicking through below.
