Today’s Sonic Central reveled a whole host of new merchandise for Sonic collectors out there, even our heads are still spinning!
Just in case you missed it, here’s our whistle-stop tour of what we can expect in the coming weeks and months!
We saw Eggman take over LEGO HQ, and showcase not only a new and improved LEGO Eggman figure (they even got in on the joke no one liked the brick Eggman), but Sonic, Tails, and Amy to boot as well. There are 5 sets on the way, including Sonic’s Speed Sphere, a monster Green Hill Zone set, and a Death Egg Robot!
What a Croc
Love ’em or hate ’em, Crocs have collaborated with Sonic to prouce some Sonic-red clogs which you can customise with official Sonic Jibbitz™ charms.
They’ve missed a trick not doing Vector-themed ones though.
An Egg For Trying Times
The Jakks Pacific merchandise keeps coming thick and fast at the moment, and the line up just got even bigger – figuratively and literally – with the Death Egg Playset!
The monster sphere features an internal playset in which Sonic can grind on rails and battle against Dr. Eggman. We think this would look great hanging from your ceiling.
For those heading out to enjoy a picnic in the sun, the sixteen-bit style Playmate cooler from Igloo for those wanting to keep their Sonic ice creams cool on the go. 623 coolers purchased today will include an exclusive Sonic sticker/decal, so get yer skates on.
Boutique clothers Hypland are bringing a range of apparel to market that feature deisgns that cover a huge range of designs from across the Sonic time and space. The collection includes shirts, hats…and even rugs.
If you are local to LA, check out the launch at the pop-up Hypeland store; if not, the collection will be available online on June the 26th.
Sonic vs. Shadow
At long last! Lifted straight from Sonic Adventure 2 artwork comes a statue of epic proportions from new brand S-Fire. This Sonic and Shadow statue begins pre-orders today, but comes in at a rather hefty ¥44,000 ($300) before shipping, so this one is for the serious collectors. It does look awesome though.

ESP Guitars will be releasing another Sonic the Hedgehog-themed guitar later this year. The brand have released guitars before (including copies of the iconic guitars used by Jun Senoue) but have come with a premium price – this one looks to be aimed at fans with a more modest budget.
More details soon!
The Cable Guys (not the Jim Carrey film) are adding two modern era Sonic figures to their controller stand line in the form of Sonic the Hedgehog and Shadow the Hedgehog.
They can also hold other things!
Stay tuned for more merchandise updates!
