|This page is for suspicious & strange items AND "Red Herring" items.
These are things like 'false cameos' where it LOOKS like it might be a Sonic thing, but then isn't. It's also for fishy things which look like bootlegs, but havn't been proven one way or another. Mysterious items that could be hoaxes of some kind (a hoax is something that doesn't actually get made/marketed, it's a trick played on people--so it's fake, but not really "real" as in for sale) also will appear in hopes of being solved. Items will be coming & going from the page, as they get proved one way or another. Things like red herrings will stay, as they have no other category to appear in.

|This gray hoodie & pants "Sonic Powered!" slogan set is suspicious.
Usually bootleggers don't bother with sets, but it's not totally unheard of. The suspect thing about it is that it mixes classic and modern Sonic on one item without it being game related. Plus, you've got Mighty & Ray in there...and usually if they appear they don't appear with any modern characters. Also, why Sonic 3 times in the tiles, and Shadow twice? It looks like it might be mixing art & CG as well...which is another bad sign of someone just grabbing internet images for a quick fake-up of a design.
Having the logo font be wierd on the pants too is another odd move. It's clearly a design effort but it seems a bit too hodge-podge-type to be immediately considered an actual thing. Also note the lack of tags or copyrights anywhere--and the abundance of alt-colors of the design all over ebay as well as known bootleg haven sites. Certainly a suspect.
