Movie Live Action Sonic Merchandise
(That I don't approve of)
|After the art fiasco that set the internet ablaze with flames for 'bad design' (true) in 2019 the "Sonic Movie" live action Hollywood production went back to the 'drawing board' and re-made the hideous hedgehog into something more akin to a friendly hairy bigfoot troll that happens to be blue.
People seemed to like this better, and so merchandise moved ahead. However it's #NotMySonic so, like bandana and sports tape loving Boom Sonic (And poor Stupid BoomKnuckles) the merchandise must all get corralled away onto a special page/set so as to keep it from contaminating other items. This is that page.
|Because they had to use up so much more money re-doing the bad art in the movie, naturally they want to hype it up with a campaign, hoping to get people to see it in theaters to make the money they have lost back.
On Twitter, it launched a 12 Days of Sonic give away type thing, along with banners like this. This one is Day 6, and features tees.
|The first tee is white with a stock art style rectangle portrait, and the movie's logo beneath. Notice how the art is trying to portray* him "as if he were Modern Sonic" but then it's just a lot of jaggy lines to represent how hairy he is.
The other tee is all black, and has a CG portrait of Movie Sonic as it's only decoration.
*Portray- The non-cg art is clearly being jimmied to take away/minimize the look of the 'movie aspects' like the 2 eyes, odd cat ears, and kind of gummy lower face area to make him more clean-line and 'modern Sonic' looking because that is what's more appealing. Ad discovered by SonicHedgehog11
|Is it the Werehog?
No, but it looks just as hairy. This is the "Movie Talking Sonic Plush", who will no doubt say cringey phrases recorded from the movie. It has flat smooth fabric, with that 'cg hair texture' printed all over to give it a sort of mottled look. The lower face is big like the movie, and they have the brow lowered to ease up on the white face-center that separates the eyes.
|Why they cropped away the hands/feet is unknown in the photo, it could be a prototype doll of some kind that they needed to show in order to hold the contest. When/if the doll is released, photos will appear here. Photo discovered by SonicHedgehog11|
