Sonic Boom Action Figures
|This page continues the Sonic Boom style action figures. This will inclued all the figure sizes & also any vehicles, playsets or any accessories the figures might come with. This page should be 2015 and later releases.|
|Here are all the Boom figures together!
They look good and colorful as a group. You can also see that Tomy paid attention to the scale, as Tails is shorter & Amy is not exactly the size of Sonic. The movement may be limited, but they're nice looking as a collection when grouped together on a shelf like this. Photo by SonicRanger!
|Here's the first look at Tomy's build-able Sonic Boom character figures. As you remember, Tomy had 'buildable' figures for modern Sonic previously, they came blind-boxed in blue spheres from a cardboard dispenser in stores. They were a semi-hard rubber/plastic. These are no doubt more of the same, but with green hexagon bases. The bottom right shows how many parts will likely be in each figure. You can collect Tails, Sticks, Knuckles, Amy, Eggman & 1 Sonic.

|This is a Vinyl figure.
They're actually called "Vinyl Figures" rather than naming them by the size as was usually done. (It seems odd to not have a line name, but) Anyway, here's Boom Knuckles mint in his cardboard...tray? The "5" down there is boasting "5 points of articulation", which, for a figure of this size isn't actually a whole lot. Plus, with his spikes the way they are, his head, while articulated, will never move much. His expression is kind of strange as well, he doesn't particularly look that normal or cool with his mouth open like that.
The packaging is terrible!
The figure is almost entirely exposed, and it has tiny fragile legs with the joint at the hip--where he is tied down. How many of these are going to be scuffed, broken or dirty before the consumer actually gets to them? No one is going to want to pay over 15 dollars for a filthy broken figure. MIB collectors will note the figure can gather dust & is unable to stack. Photo by Taaron
|Here's Tomy's Buildable Knuckles all assembled, so you can compare it to their regular 3 inch size figure. As you can see, he's pre posed to the 'fist catch' kind of CG stock pose, and he has the facial expression from it too. (So he looks a little livelier than the standard figure) The bandages are nicely sculpted, but he's missing his power band bracelet thing. The metal plates for his shoes are also blue instead of gray.
In all, for a blindbag mini buildable figure (it comes as arms, body & head with base) it looks pretty nice. With 6 figures on the set, these should be pretty collectible. Photo & owned by CoolLuke1337
|A new 2-pack for 2018!
Here's a suit Sonic & Metal Sonic boom figures 2 pack. Sonic is 'dressed' (painted) in a black & blue space suit looking outfit, so you're getting a different figure and not having to buy a duplicate of every other Sonic figure they've done. Metal Sonic is the normal appearing one just like in the Boom show.
It's good that to get this Metal, you can get at least another version/dress up of Sonic, not being forced to buy 5 of the same figure just to get one new one that you want. Release of these is supposed to be somewhat spotty, though. Will either one end up being rare? Photo by Taaron
|This Boom Box Set 5 Pack appears in spring 2018. It's just a 5 pack of the standard size Boom figures with Tails, Amy, Sonic, Knuckles & Dr. Eggman all in one package. But notice the lack of Sticks. Why skip including her? Isn't she a fan favorite on the show? It's not 'the girls curse' because Amy is there...but it just seems odd/dumb to not have this be a 6 pack and have Sticks in there too.

|This is called the "Parallel Universe Villain" pack. It has Orbot & Cubot from earlier releases, plus Eggman but with a re-paint so that now he's wearing green like the 'parallel universe' episode where everything (I guess) was slightly different. To make this not just another standard re-release, metallic paint is used on all the figures. It's always a nice touch on robot characters, and these are no exception. This pack will likely be the only way to get this re-colored eggman. Photo by Taaron.|
|Here comes another page out of the Tomy 2018 toy catalog, this time for "Figure Multi-Packs". The first one is just your average pack, with Tails, Sonic, Knuckles & Amy all together. Notice how Sticks is missing though, why are they leaving her out? A multi-pack like this is always billed as 'being good for starting out', but they make it problematic by releasing figures in pairs, or making "The only way to get this item is with this character...." forcing people to over spend & re buy and end up with duplicates. As evidenced with....
The very next set!
This set is called "Sonic is in Trouble!" multi-pack. With thi, you get the bee type badnick, the modified motobug, Sonic, Eggman & Metal Sonic. So they prove their own point about forcing duplicates because the only way to get those badnicks would be buying Sonic & Eggman over again, even though all 3 non-badnick characters have also been released singly in the past. Good for starters, not the best for collectors who want badnicks to play with too. Catalog discovered by PatMac
|This Tomy 2018 catalog page is all about 2-Packs.
This showcases their upcoming double-pack figures with some show related...outfits? Recolors? The first set is Metal Sonic & "Alternative Eggman" where he gets a costume re-color to black/red/gray with the majority in black. (He's only described there as 'alternate' so it must be an episode) Then there's regular Sonic & boom-style Shadow. On the bottom are clearly sports playing themed figures with pairs for Sonic & Knuckles and Amy with Tails. Notice how their hands are both always shaped to grasp something in this set, will they have some kind of accessory to make the sports jersey & sports shoes make sense? Why does no one have any sports shorts except Amy? What episode was this from?
The outfits & color changes make some sense here, because it means you're not buying yet another 'standard Sonic' just to get Shadow. Release date & prices for the packs are pending. Catalog discovered by PatMac
