Display Figures Title Card
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.

S-Fire Duo Sonic Shadow Display Figure A new display figure company (new to Sonic, that is) is on the scene with an exciting new large diorama type figure. This is the SFire Duo Sonic & Shadow display figure. S-Fire gives this a crumbled/cracked pavement/street base with big parts sticking up. They use semi-transparent plastic for the swirls of energy/trails around Shadow (orangeish) and Sonic (blue with white) They're in 'ready for action' poses from Sonic Adventure 2. (Notice that Sonic has the Soap-Shoe design) The expressions are decent, everything is very on-model, and it looks dynamic. They did use metallic gold paint for Shadow's glove/shoe rings. This looks great, but it is costly at over 350 dollars as it is large & quality.
Funko Pop Shadow 2 Pack Glow SDCC This isn't a magazine picture for Funko Pop new Shadow 2 pack...it's actually a billboard! This billboard appeared at SDCC in 2023, to announce their latest figures which also glow in the dark.
Sold as a 2 pack with stands, so that it'll look like he's gliding/floating, each version of the character has a different pose. The glow in the dark is also a fun addition. (It's too bad these things are just still as creepy as ever)
Not currently known if this 2 pack is a SDCC exclusive, or if it will appear elsewhere. Also, why is he depicted in front of a pine forest? That's orange-toned? Billboard backgrounds aside, price information pending to this entry.
Buildable Amy Rose Figure Boxed At last, here's the Buildable Amy from Just Toys.
She did end up being the rarest of the 5 characters on their first wave. (Far from the supposed 'girls curse' this one seems it was the most in-demand)
She has 4 different arms, just like everybody else so you can mix and match for more looks. Of course, one of them has her Piko Hammer. The others, the hand is doing various poses. One of the arms is hidden in the bottom of the box. With her smaller nose, she's at less risk of getting hit by the box/smear the paint. Her expression is good, but it's a bit harder to see
it with how she is placed in the box.
Recomendation: If you see this figure buy it, because for whatever reason it has been uncommon from the start & the fans do want it. It is likely to go up in price later.
Funko Soda Tails After the (apparent) success of their Funko Soda Figure Sonic, they move on to make Soda Tails Figure. And, as with the Sonic one, there's a chance that the figure could be the flocked/fuzzy chase figure (bottom right) The gimmick is that the display figure is hidden in the retro style soda can packaging.
However...because it's Funko...the figure is slightly 'chibi' but has that blank stare kind of odd look about it. (Look how cute the tails art is on the can, why couldn't it look like that?) It's well sculpted...but why doesn't he have enough fingers? Also the 'flocked' one there is a piece of CG, it's not an actual photo of what you'd get.
Modern Buildable Knuckles Here is Knuckles from the Modern Craftables Wave 2 figures.
This is the set where the bases all can snap together to form a scene if you get all of the different characters despite their efforts with blind-boxing. Knuckles is posed doing a 3-point landing on a...circle of wood that is somehow in the striped grass of the rest of the scene. His pose is nicely dynamic, as whoever they have working on these DOES capture subtle details in poses well (As evidenced with their Amy & etc) They also don't shorten character limbs for convenience, which makes it look more like the games. His outreach arm is long, the fists are good/big, and his back shoe is bent. His expression is normal/determined.
To put him together you have to put the arms and head on, then snap him to the wood base and snap that into the grass. What's that big black line on the head? It's the model number to him...this usually goes under a foot so it doesn't disrupt the look of the figure but...somehow it's back there on him.
The box is their usual (annoying) blindbox, and it shows you the other characters you can get, for a total of 5. At about 10 each, you'd have to spend about 50 getting them all...about as much as a new video game. And that's IF you never draw a duplicate.
