|Whether it's pop-up, seasonal, or permenent...if Sonic appears it's a Sonic Fan Place.
Being able to take a look at banners, promotional events, conventions and more that are Sonic focused without having to actually attend is what this page is all about. This includes Sonic related events too, like contests, releases, parties, anniversaries or anything else that was a temporary gathering to celebrate something Sonic.
|In Japan, Sonic Forces had some kind of game launch party or contest celebration with a Time Attack contest in Forces. Here, you can see the winners gathered for their photo shoot with their prizes. It looks like everybody got some kind of Sega related goodie-bag. What's likely to be the 'runners-up' got small Sonic plush dolls. Another got a larger version of the same plush (bottom right) but then look at the likely 1st place guy...he's got a statue dispaly figure type item! But...just what is it? Let's take a closer look.|
|Here is the best close-up that can be gathered from the photo. The first thing you can notice though, is the texture. It looks like it is flocked. While it's not the first flocked figure (Jazwares had an exclusive), this particular figure was never made in a flocked version. (It is the Joypolis 20th Anniversary one) Is it a 1-off? Was it made especially to be the prize here? If it's not fuzzy, what's making it look like that? Is it engraved or anything on the base to make it an exclusively Forces item? A one-of-a-kind Sonic item would be curious indeed. Do write in if you know about this figure. Photos discovered by:|
