|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.

|First 4 Figures produces yet ANOTHER excellent & awesome figure, with Modern Super Sonic here. The setting for the figure is to be ruined Station Square after Perfect Chaos floods it, creating the stage for the final battle. Notice that the 'metal' of the base is 'rusted' & damaged looking. The water is a clear resin material in realistic splash texture. You can "See Down" into it to texture/imagry on the base that is patterned like the street. (That part doesn't appear in photos very well but it is such an over-the-top touch of greatness for it!)|
|Of course, this statue too, would need a light up feature (as each one of their items always has it) Here, you can see a comparison of the lit & unlit version. Choosing to light the water from underneath is excellent, look at how dramatic the piece looks & how it brings out the texture of the splash.|
|This is a BIG piece! It not only looks dramatic but it commands space because it is 16.5 inches high. It is limited to 600 pieces, so get in early at 2015, since it is a Q1 2016 release.|
|The light up version of the display figure is 249.99|
|The figure is made of their usual polystone material, however, to imitate Super Sonic's (magical? special? glowing/color changing whatever it is effect in the game) they selected special shiny pearlized shimmer paint for the figure to give it an extra glow. Look at how really great the sculpting is, especially on the back of the figure from the turn arounds above. There's not even 1 error, it looks exactly like the game. The whole thing is super smooth & the pose is dynamic & different from all previous figures.
This one is certainly a must-have for the high end collector. All of their excellent details add up to an amazing piece. All photos by First 4 Figures.
|Here's a co-promotional display figure. (Likely the first one of this type produced) The promotion is for Love Live! and the character is Rin. The statue is based on the art (probably) seen behind it there, and on other promo items (seen around Gear) like the Ramen, Bath powder, & standee.
She's sculpted holding a Sonic doll that's giving a thumbs-up while the other hand flops down. The likeness for Sonic is good, he looks cute as her plush here, with thick fingers, rounded/simplified shoes & happy expression. The Sonic part appears to be held up (and balance the figure) with a clear rod from the base. Photos by Onegai Oniichan
|A cool way to celebrate the 25th Anniversary is with a display figure!
Cool collectibles like this one are always in style. It's a fully 3D classic Sonic in his 'finger waving' pose. He stands on a black plastic base with the anniversary logo in silver/shiny paint. He's very well done, quite on-model. (It is likely a 3D from the game print to mold for real figure accuracy) It appears to be pretty big too, likely 5 inches high or more...the texture of the background & ground cloth give a slight size indication.
This figure is scheduled to appear in prize machines in summer 2016. Having to win the figure will certainly raise the rarity of it & increase difficulty of getting it. Not every prize machine will have it, either, so it first must be discovered and then won. Do you know the size detail of the figure? Write in for credit if so.
|Here is an all new mini figure collection!
These small figures with gold ring shaped bases are produced by Kid Robot. They likely have an early 2017 release date. There are 14 figures total, with all classic style & a nice variety. You can get standing Eggman, running Sonic, motobug, a ring, flying Tails, Egg o Matic Eggman, 'pixel Sonic', Coconuts monkey, Buzz Bomber, Octobot, finger waving Sonic, chop chop the firsh or hand up Tails. Each one is fully 3D & neatly painted. Unfortunately, these are "Blind Box" figures, so you don't know which one you'll get.
Watch out for the starting price.
|At release, each small figure works up to about 11+ dollars per figure AND to not know which one you will get (or the ring) seems not-that-reasonable & makes this set something exceedingly costly to collect.|
|Kid Robot has more in store for 2017 than just the blindbox figures above. Here, they show a classic Sonic scene. It's Green Hill (of course) & has a spinning/rolling Sonic figure (with transparent plastic 'energy' effect around him) & a sloping GHZ base. There are 3 rings to be placed on clear pegs to give a floating effect. Is this just a diorama of some sort? Does it come with anything else/do something? As you can see there with the tag it says "Wholesale 37.00", which means anywhere you go to buy it, it will likely be much more. (As that is the base price the store would pay) More info on this pending anyone finding it for sale somewhere. Discovered by Taaron|
|Did you know?
F4F goes the extra mile with their statue figures and includes a plastic card with the unique code/number of the figure you got. In this case, it's for a classic display figure. (All the cards are either classic style or modern style, and they look the same) You can see they used real raised embossing for the code on the thick plastic card. What a nice detail.
