|Fans of Sonic seem to be endless, and just as endless is the supply of Sonic-fan-items for you to see! What creative objects will everyone come up with this time?
Why are these NOT bootlegs? Because their owners are not trying to pass these off as official goods, and in most cases, there is only ONE of each item you see. No one's in some factory somewhere mass-producing things only hoping to grab money. Most of these are crafts created by Sonic fans, will they inspre you?

|Can a company be a fan?
It looks like that's possible... because it seems like fast food Arby's is!
Here, they fulfill specific fan item conditions with their tweeted-out photos
|They have made 3D items including a Pumpkin Hill pumpkin, and a Master Emerald base. Then, the photos were added to their official Twitter with a Sonic-related message. All that combines to land these funny photos here on fan objects. First, Knuckles is ready to go to Pumpkin Hill Zone (near halloween, it was a shout-out to fans) then, Eggman steals the emerald-shaped nugget (notice his egg o matic has "BEEF" written on the side) & last, Knuckles regains the nugget item & is shown with onion-ring "rings.
What's unique about it. They're not doing a Sonic promotion of any sort, they didn't need to make the fun little decorations or shout out to the Sonic fans. They are just BEing fans...having fun and promoting at the same time.
|Shadow DID appear in Sonic Riders, but as he wasn't a 'main character' Jazwares didn't get around to making a figure of him. This fan customized figure & board are here to correct that. Shadow is made from a Jazwares 3.75 line figure but has new hands (Riders Sonic's) & sculpting to change his shoes to the Riders style. He has sculpted glasses & a customized board to make it into his exclusive board the "Black Shot". The figure can still be posed & holes have been added under the feet so he can stand on the board & really ride it. Photos & customized by Dustin Lee Autry|
|Here is a customized Amiibo base...into Metal Sonic.
The Sonic Amiibo is usually a fixed-figure of Sonic on the 'amiibo base' which triggers the in-game actions. However, it can be removed, and another figure substituted. It doesn't change how it works, but it does give a new look. In this case, it's Jazwares' 3.75 line Metal Sonic figure. He's posed, then set in place with the clear support pillar so he becomes less an action figure & more a display type figure for use as an Amiibo. Photos & customized by Dustin Lee Autry
|Apparently Arbys the fast food restaurant is still a Sonic fan. Companies, apparently can be fans and thus produce fan objects. This time, they use cardboard packaging, creative cutting & some paper from the store to build this 3D head. It is the head of an enemy type character featured in a trailer for Sonic Forces in summer 2017. This character has a strangely colored (or possibly missing/replaced) eye on one side & an unusually shaped face. It is interesting to see, because this fan item appeared upon the official Arbys twitter only days after the character was revealed in the trailer. Seeing companies being fans & appealing to fans is very cool! Discovered by Taaron|
