|Australia keeps on making great Sonic items.
This page will, as usual, contain a mix of new and old things. Most of the older items are likely a result of Segaworld Sydney. Some of the new things here may be currently obtainable, so be on the look-out if you want them! The link block at the left side can contain links to places which sell them. (It changes, though) Where possible, a link will be provided in the description, while the item is being sold.
Caution: Some things may only be able to be obtained while you are within Australia.
The new/old status of the item will be noted in it's description.

|Here's a cool for school notebook!
Well, as long as the pages don't have to be officially shaped. This special book is die-cut to the edge of the Sonic art so it has it's own unique shape. It's metal-ring spiral bound and has a thick plastic cover. The cover has forward-facing hands on hips classic Style Sonic, some blue checkers for the background & his name. In the tradition of very nice & detailed notebooks....
(That Japan is mostly known for) you can spot some fun line art of running Sonic down there in the 'shoe edge' of every corner. It's in the same no-copy blue ink as the lines are for the paper. A nice touch!
With fun shape, cool cover, extra art on every page & metal spiral binding this notebook is a keeper. Interestingly, it was a show-bag type give-away item. This is likely to be an Australia only item. (Charm at the top is not official, it is over on fan-items) Photo & owned by Sonic Dollz
|If you were looking to buy Sonic Forces in Electronics Botique stores in Australia, you may have seen this cardboard big sign. It's an announcement sign for the game or pre-ordering the game.
The front has the Forces gang complete with 'generic the character' & a wisp in there. The other side tells you about the game, has screen shots & explains what you get with the bonus edition. The bonus items are costumes from other franchises like NiGHTS & Jet Set Radio so you can dress up your custom character. (But then why have a Shadow costume? Why not just...put Shadow in the game?) Once store signs like this are expired (the game releases) they can sometimes be collected, as what happened here. Photo & owned by Sonic Dollz
|Here's a better look at the "Sonic Generations Shoe Keychain". It appears MIB on an earlier page, but that photo doesn't reveal the special logo on the shoe sole. This also shows what type of key clip it has, and the little chain. It's quite a nice sculpt for the shoe & a fun idea for a bonus. It came with the Generations issue of Nintendo Magazine.

|Here is a nice messenger bag that's made of a black canvas material. It has a shoulder strap, front flap pocket (see zipper pull near logo) and a green hill design. The bag uses the palm trees, floating platforms & sunflowers of Green hill, but adds over-sized classic style artwork of Sonic and Tails (even though Tails was never there) Since there's no background, the design looks colorful and nice on the black cloth. There are pockets under the flap for pens/phones & other small items. This measures about 32 wide, 28 high, 10 deep, all in centimeters. It's by AbyStyle, and may cost around 40 AUD.

|In Australia, there is a fast food restaurant chain called "Red Rooster". Similar to McDonalds, it has a kid's meal that is called "Little Meal" &, like other restaurants it has prizes. Nicely enough, they did a Sonic promotion which had 5 different prizes you could collect with your meal. This one here is a pencil/pen pouch for school or crafts. It is all plastic, with one of those "plastic zippers" that has no teeth.
It's a nicely designed item! It has Sonic jumping with the modern logo, a nice swirl & checker background, plus Tails, Knuckles & Amy in some less-common modern poses for the art. It makes for an active & colorful composition that's really well done. A nice free collectible! Photo & owned by Sonic Dollz
|Here is Meal Prize #2 from Red Rooster's set of 5 collectible fun Sonic items. It is a "Flip the Cards Memory Game". Shuffle the cards face down, then set them all down in a grid pattern & try to pick 2 matches of each character.|
|These cards come in the box you see at right. The card backs all have this same design. What's really cool about the set is that it has rare characters & rare poses! Look at who all you get: Sonic, Eggman, Knuckles, Tails, Rouge, Amy, Shadow, Jet Hawk, Big the Cat, Tikal, Werehog, MARINE Raccoon, Cream & Cheese, Vector, Wave Swallow & Charmy Bee. Tikal isn't common, but has at least appeared on a few things & as a GE Entertainment Plush...but what about Marine? Is this her ONLY item? And look at the uncommon poses too, pretty much everyone is in one of their least-seen versions...especially Big, Cream & Wave. This is a very desireable memory game card set because of the good art & character choices. Photo & owned by Sonic Dollz|
