|If tt's not an action figure. It's not a statue...it's a Display Figure! These non-actioning figures are like little statues you can collect. Not particularly 'toys' they can be made of resin, PVC, hard plastic or other materials that hold detail well. Usually they're in cases or on bases, all the better for displaying.
This is an international page. The figures here can be from any country, and it will be noted near each one where it's from. Especially with more modern figures (Like First4Figures) the item may be produced in a certain country and mostly advertised there (ex. the USA) however since they're sold over the web, they ship anywhere in the world, making the items available to all.
The "International" approach to Sonic items is really the best one, because Sonic fans live everywhere on Earth and everyone wants an opportunity to collect.

|It's not a Funko Pop, it's not a Soda Pop....
It's...Funko's Sonic figure but in a soda can? The soda can style packaging is their new way to blindbox something. It has classic finger waving Sonic for the can art, and the "Funko Soda" old-fashion looking logo for the line name at the top.
The figure you get can be either normal plastic, or the blue part can be flocked. The flocked figure is probably 'chase'
|meaning it is somewhat or a lot less common. The style of the figure is somwhat interesting, it's sure not pop (thankfully), but he is styleized to a degree looking like a bit of a combination between modern and classic Sonic, but with the eyes really close together? They have no highlights and the eye border being asymmetrical with the close-eyes makes the expression what? Slightly silly? It's not terrible, but it does not really seem 'classic Sonic like'. Where will this be sold, and how much does it cost? It is a 2021 item.|
|Funko is apparently still at it with their creepy dot-eyed pop figures, but now Shadow has his special Dark Chao with him. It's disproportionatly small to fit in his hand (has nothing to do with head size) but the chao being normal (enough) while the figure being that 'funko mutant' is kind of a disharmony look. Also look at the box art, the art is less creepy because the dot-eye is positioned to actually have a bit of an expression.|
|Funko does an otherwise good job on the figure. The shoes, hands, gloves & spikes all seem properly arranged. It would be nice if they would make something that looked less like a zombie doll because they clearly have figure making skill. This is a 2021 item, wherever FunkoPops are sold|
|Here is the 4th Craftable from Craftables line 1.
This is also the least-common one because it seems like they didn't make as many of it...and you can see why. It's clearly the most parts-intensive one and so it would have cost more to make it but.....they had to sell it at the same price as the rest of them. This is also the one that lives up the most to the name of the actual product, it is a REAL scene for you to craft. The gound part is 2 pieces to snap together, you have to put the figures' heads on, and you have to add their arms to their shoulders. Then, you can snap Sonic's tail to the ground, the 'impact' clear-effect for the shoe & Tails' fot attaches to Sonic's head to complete the pose.
This is a really good scene from them, and it is worth the 10 dollar price tag.
TIP: If you see the boxes in the store at Target in 2021 (in the electronics/toys/movie-toy area) LIFT all the boxes 1 by 1 and this one will reveal itself to you. It is by far the heaviest of all of them so it is easy to choose it despite their blind-box efforts.
This captures the action of the classic games really well! They've got the poses going just right & the rubbery spikes-hazard & foot-impact thing are perfectly positioned. It's very lively, cute, and classic.
|First 4 Figures is at it again!
At fabulous figures again, if these 2 versions of Shadow are any indication. F4F seemed to not have a big size Sonic franchise release in a while, but summer 2021 sees the preview pics of their upcoming Shadow figure. As you know, they enjoy always having 2 versions of something, and involving a light up feature. This is no different, with the chaos control 'energy flames' effect at the bottom having a light effect whether in orange for Super Shadow or Green for emerald-holding Shadow.
This figure 'gets out of the mold' (literally!) by being different from previous '2 versions' in a couple of ways. First off and most obvious is the base part of the base is literally different/textured differently (space for Super Shadow) whereas previous bases were identical save for the light effect. Then, Shadow is holding an actual transparent green Chaos Emerald in one hand while Super Shadow (having absorbed emeralds) has that same hand in a fist. The differences are interesting, make sense & look cool.
|It would be something that would easily encourage people to collect both.
As always, the sculpt is super really excellent for him. The pose is dynamic, he doesn't look 'cliche annoyed' like so many things seem to have him be, and the 'power effect' for the hand and base is also really well done. They get his super color correct as well (not yellow like SS, but its own shade) This one's going to be an absolute must for Shadow fans who have a lot of money. Photos by F4F
