|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.

|Did you know this existed?
Quite quietly, sometime near the end of 2018, the Sega Shop online released this Limted Edition, all-silver-tone Metal Sonic collectible figure. It was 25 dollars, which is pretty reasonable for a fairly sized AND limited edition figure like this. But they did it with no fanfare, or notice it was coming....
And it sold out nearly immediatly. (Because of course it would) So, this is going to be an uncommon item for sure. It looks great & classic in the all silver tone. He's shown 'floating' along over the track with clear peg supports, just like in the real race. The box has nice art & a logo "LC" for the company that did it...
|but what's the name? Will they make any more figures? What about the normal color, non-limited version? It wasn't ever for sale at the Sega Shop at the same time as this one. The track is branded with the 25th logo...so you know it had to be a 2018 item.
This figure is somewhat frusterating, because of the quiet release, limited quantity, and decent price that made fans who wanted it (and could actually get it due to price point) feeling left out.
|Boom8 just keeps on going!
In their link up with First 4 Figures, they're getting ready to release another pair of character figures. This set has classic Amy Rose & classic Super Sonic for figures number 5 and 6. Now, they're also joining GNF Toys. (Remember, Boom8 has nothing to do with Boom, that's just the name the company always had)
As usual, the small figures are really solid looking, quite expected of this quality company. Take note of Amy's clothing, it's what she had in Sonic CD, but catch all the little details
|like the triangle cut at her shirt edge, how the shirt forms over the top of the skirt, and how the puffy sleeves sit on her arms. They didn't miss a beat, it looks like real clothing. Super Sonic has buckles added to his shoes (so they match the Japanese art) and the spikes set exactly right/upward. SS gets a good dynamic flying pose, and Amy is looking shy/fun. Both are really appropriate and nice looking. These will be a 2019 release, and look like a great collection addition!|
