|It'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, 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.

|With this photo, First 4 Figures unveils their 2nd line of display small figures. They picked some goodies for this classic line, with Metal Sonic, a real Super Sonic, and classic clothes Amy. Each one looks great in classic style, Amy is quite cute, Super Sonic has upward spikes and looks determined, and Metal Sonic uses a nice shimmery metallic tone paint. Amy however, does not seem to be quite to scale, as she's exactly as tall as Sonic here, when really she should be a little shorter. Their Tails is to scale, so why not Amy??|
|Because he's such a fan-favorite, Metal Sonic needs his own close up shot. You can see the pearly-ness of the paint better here, & also the finger detail & that his pose is pretty dynamic, compared to that of the other figures on both of their lines so far. They seem to have gotten all his details right, with screws/ bolts etc. all in place. No doubt this will be a really great figure to collect!

|Look at this great and convenient figure 6 pack! Get ALL 6 of the figures from both lines all at once with this handy item! This 6 pack is a fantastic idea, that will likely save lots of people on shipping.|
|Hopefully they produce enough of these great sets, they look convenient and fantastic. A great way to display the figures too, as the packaging is quite nice.|
|Some nice close ups of Amy & Super Sonic show the well done details, and nice sculpting. You can see some side views above, these guys look good from any angle. This 6 pack of figures is 29.99, released in 2010. You can buy it from the First4Figures website with this link: First4Figures Sonic Figures 6 Pack Photos & info courtesy F4F|
|This is likely a cast-resin statue. Here, classic Eggman is shown victorious (in his 'emerald holding pose from a bad ending) on a laquered wood base. This is a Japanese statue, & was|
|produced in the early 1990s. It was likely expensive at the time, and probably remains so now. As you can see here, the base is real polished wood (stained dark brown) and has pre-drilled holes in it for his feet, which must have some type of peg. The box near him says KENT on it, but why is it relevant at all? You can see the sculpting here is all nice and Sonic 1 game accurate, with his shiny glasses, red nose, and simple mustache. Look how big his mouth is though, he's got loads of teeth. This statue is quite uncommon! Photos discovered by:|
First 4 Figures AMAZING Metal Sonic Classic Style Statue... with light up action! Look at the menacing glow of the LEDs for the eyes, engine and sparks!
|Not only is it wonderfully sculpted, as usual, these glowing effects REALLY add to the figure, as he glowed in all the games. The base light flashes & lights continuously for effect. This light up version is limited to only 350 figures (numbered) & costs $174.99. It was available in the USA & Canada, in Q2 2011 through the First4Figures website. This is really a super piece to own, a jewel in any Sonic collection.|
|This is the non-light-up version of their Classic Metal Sonic Statue. It still looks fantastic, of course. The sculpt is spot-on to Sonic CD, and with these photos you can really see the cool metallic paint they used for the blue &|
|silver. The sparks here are yellow with a fade to white at the tips, instead of partially clear. The base is made & colored to resemble the StardustSpeedway stage, which is where this boss battle took place in Sonic CD. This figure was limited to 1500 statues, and costs $154.99. It is also numbered. It weighs 3 KG (same as the other) and the sculptor for both is Goran Sadojevich. Either figure has an authenticity card to allow you to order the same # for your next figure.

|Super Sonic (classic) appeared on Display Figures 2, but it's interesting to see all of him lined up like this, when he was made. Sort of a peek behind the scenes. Photos discovered by Taaron, taken by Tomopop|
|Here are the same small line classic PVC Sonic figures as the set above, but as single-card releases. Each figure is on a separate bubble card. You can see they have a hole at the top for retail display. Does this mean they'll appear in a store (not on the internet)? It's a convenient move to release them singly as well. You can see the F4F logo at the bottom, and each character's name at the top. The card art is standard classic fare, with either a blue or yellow background to show off the figure. These are about 4.99 pound in the UK area, if you can find them. An online store currently selling these is the Forbidden Planet. (but be sure to shop early, as it can sell out of them) Photo discovered by BelovedDoll. , buying info by TReKiE
|This mini figure on base was enclosed with the Sonic Classics Collection. As you can see, it's a nice 3D representation of the classic running Sonic stock art. As you remember, the Classics Collection was the Australia tin box bonus pack. It can be seen in further detail on Australia Items page. Photo & owned by Shadouge|
|First4Figures created this special limited statue to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of Sonic. It has modern Sonic on a checkered/striped Green Hill style base, with the 20th Anniversary seal. He has his hand on a TV/Monitor (like from Sonic 1) which is showing part of a picture of classic Sonic. This is a tribute to classic + modern all in one.
However, the picture in the monitor can differ. One is the Japanese style art, the other shows the modified USA style. The Japan background is
|abstract (colors/shapes) while the USA one has the checkered loop. Oddly, on the F4F website, they claim only 1000 are being made and they won't be sold regularly. They'll still be 'get-able' but they won't say how or really where. Europe? USA? Once the find-data is available, it will be added here what their plan was.|

|At left, you can see the official piece of Sega art that First 4 Figures used to model the statue off of. Next, take a peek into the warehouse where the finished figures reside, and see how they are assembled. A clear 'screen' goes over the TV face, and each figure is set onto the base.

|Look at this interesting 20th Anniversary Sonic figure / statue thing. Here, Sonic is in a unique pointing pose, & is standing on a black base. The base is thin metal, as seen from the bolts above. The 20th Anniversary logo seems to be embossed into the glossy base. The left photo may have Izuka Takahasi in the background. This is from/for|
|Joypolis in Japan & other Sega Worlds, but it can only be WON from a special 20th Anniversary grabber machine. The claw machine lifts out a box (middle) which holds the statue. These will run about 60-90 USD IF you can find one at Ebay or Yahoo Auctions Japan. This is clearly SonicTeam people /staff etc. doing the photos & having a look. You can see the machine that you can win this out of, over on SonicGear Arcade Machines page.
|Here are the turn-around shots for the PVC Sonic figure above. They were sold out of GAME stores in the UK for about 3.99 pound. The turn around looks good here, with nice even spikes, well done shoes and an ok pose. They might have gotten a little overly-classic as these close ups reveal that his pupils are really, really rectangular which makes it look just slightly off. Still, for 3.99 pound, it's not a bad small figure at all. Photo & owned by OrangeHedgehog 1984|
