  1. Just looking through this comment section.
    Archie Sonic makes Sonic fans nerd out in the coolest ways possible. ^_^

  2. I have to say one thing, I have loved every new character design since the reboot so far but… What the hell is with that purple-ish blue guy next to Nack/Fang? He just looks like the typical OC donut steel that fuses several characters together and recolours the result… o_o

    1. He’s from the variant of Eggman’s Dozen Part 4.

      I like to assume. Because they look similar.

    2. He’s actually from Tails’ Skypatrol. I swear.

      His name is Focke-Wulf. Er… at least in Tails’ Skypatrol it was.
