|An item for the Eggman Fans!
Eggfans can power up their hot drinks with this cool black ceramic mug. It stars Eggman AND Metal Sonic! Both are shown as a CG image on one side of the mug, while the other has the Eggman symbol in red. The art for Metal Sonic is interesting too, it's not the
|typical pose for him, but instead uses one partially facing away. Eggman is shown shaking his fist, but what's important is that Sonic's no-where to be found. Eggman needs to be the star too sometimes, and that really helps this mug be unique and collectible.|
|This is called the "Gold Line" mug & it is only available at the Sega Shop online. It's a standard black ceramic mug (same as the one above) but this has a yellow/gold line art theme. It has a sketchy line-art thumbs-up Sonic overlapping a large circle design.|
|The circle is full of thin rays originating from a sparkling ring. There's Japanese text curved along the other edge of the circle, but the Sega Shop doesn't tell you what this says. (Does anybody know? Write in if you can translate this text for credit) The other side of the mug is blank. The line art in bright yellow on the black, plus the detailed design make this a classy mug with a pretty different look from the rest. *It doesn't seem like a good move to not tell people what the mug says, even if it is something mundane.|
|A fun Mania Mug with a gimmic & cute cartoon!
When the mug is empty or cold, it appears as an all black item with white interior. It's got the Mania logo in light blue along with several fluffy 'clouds'.
But when you add hot liquid, look what happens! This is a fun heat-changer mug. It reveals Knuckles & the master emerald. But what's he thinking? That's what's in the cloud. This is the funny art from the cute little Sonic Shorts youtube cartoons. He imagines Eggman, Sonic & a robot trying to steal the emerald. (They're drawn silly though because it's his imagination) If you like the cartoons, this is a fun mug to collect. It can be found in the SegaShop in 2018 & is probably about 18.00 (due to the gimmick)
|Now here are 2 oddities...
These are...holiday...blankets? That's right: these are Valentines Day 'fleecy fabric' big blankets. But why? Valentines Day isn't that big of a deal, it's not really a holiday everyone goes out to decorate the halls for, so blankets specifically for it don't make a lot of sense.
But, here they are anyway, complete with their own unique Sonic & Tails art. Sonic is dressed as a Cupid, with white Roman Cupid sash & white feather wings. He's holding a 'love letter' (envelope with heart sticker) & a Cupid bow. Tails is 'Flying Cupid' with a little sash, wings & his Cupid bow is drawn with a heart tip arrow as he flies. Sonic has a blue background with face pattern & Tails has orange with a face pattern for himself. These blankets are 2 sided, the other side just has the pattern & no large character art.
These are sold at the Sega Shop, but are 54 dollars each!
|After finding similar cloth blankets of similar size / materials in stores for around 20 or less, 54 seems rather steep. However, each one is certain to be unique thanks to its special art. These are a spring 2018 item.|
|This is called "The Ultimate Power Mug"...
And Shadow, who labels himself "the ultimate life-form" would probably be the one to name it & set the slogan. This white ceramic mug has a black handle & a design on one side. In a black hexagon, there's the "Ultimate Power" banner behind a black/white only image of 'jumping away' Shadow. This is a seldom-used stock art, which helps make the mug unique. Red 'rays' of color are behind him to complete the design.
This mug is pretty unique in its slogan, use of an uncommon art, & the 'boxed in' type of design. Not a bad choice at all, especially for Shadow fans! This is at the SegaShop in 2018--but the description is wrong: It's listed under "Sonic". It should be about 18.00
|In 2018, the Sega Shop online store added 6 different posters to their selection. 4 are really simple & drab, while 2 are a fun little character study.
The bottom two "Born To Run Since 91" are army drab-green with 'stencil' large printing & not much in the way of a background. Both end the sentance with a white classic Sonic face. The right-side poster has Sonic faces among the 'camo' pattern. The "flag style" posters are also pretty simple, with Sonic's name, 2 stripes, a portrait circle and "1991" between 2 stars. They're that 'weathered/stamped' look that's usually used on clothing...this time on a poster.
|The colorful ones are for Sonic Mania, specifically the little fun Youtube short cartoons. Whoever is doing the art for those has their character portrait / expression test sheets printed for these two posters. The first has Knuckles heads in black/white & color, while the 2nd has Tails heads & one shot of just his spinning tails. Both types of posters are really something new for the genre of merchandise. Super plain (I guess if your room is really busy?) & then sketch-book-style mulit-shots. Whatever you feel about these, they're not 'more of the same'. Each one is about 15 dollars in the SegaShop in Summer 2018.|
|For 2018, Sega Shop has produced this black ceramic mug. It has the slogan "You make my heart race" in pink & blue on one side, and running modern Sonic in a pink pixelated heart on the other. Isn't this usually a Valentines-type slogan?
Yes it is, but oddly enough the shop also had 'Valentines specific' blankets on there too. This mug is probably a part of that holiday push as well. It should be about 15.00 on the site.
|Here is the "Travel Mug" from the Sega Shop online store in 2018.
It has a shiny metal screw-top sipper lid (so it won't spill easily) & a classic theme. It has 16 bit style pixelated art all the way round. It alternates various sprites of Sonic, like running, jumping & rolling. He's depicted over a line of rings, the usual Green Hill Zone ground & under that different sizes of the Chop-Chop fish badnik. (Why sizes though? ChopChops are all always the same, they probably did it for variety) There's also the classic logo at the top.
The art is under a clear plastic casing, which is good because that means it won't wear off during washing or normal use. This also helps the cup keep easier to clean, as does the wide top so you can reach into it to scrub.
This is 13 dollars at the Sega Shop in summer 2018.
|Wow! It's a Sonic Toaster!
Did you ever think you'd see a toaster with a Sonic theme? (Probably not) and look, it even toasts a Sonic face into the bread when you put it in there. The picture of the black sihloutte classic Sonic face appears on the toast, thanks to a heated metal brand inside that gets closer than the normal heating elements to ensure it darkens the bread just so. This seems to be the first actual electric kitchen appliance
|of Sonic...but will it be the only one? (Hopefully not) The toaster itself is pretty plain. It's just stainless steel, with 2 slots & the printed on black face design. It seems to be going for more a utility type look rather than something with a big theme. This is 35 dollars in the Sega Shop online. It was created thanks to a pre-sale that had to have 1000 pledges of 35 dollars each to produce the toaster. Over 1,500 fans wanted it & pledged though, so now anyone can buy it in 2018.|
|In 2018, the Sega Shop has created this white Knuckles theme water bottle.
It's ceramic-coated stainless steel with a plastic screw cap top & karabener so you can hang it on a belt loop or bag. It's also 21 dollars which is a little pricey for a simple bottle like this.
It's also boring. There's not any actual design going on here much. They just took a Knuckles stock line art & put him on there with red ink. It's also just the face & his chest marking. It's neoclassic, and not an over-used piece of art but....the whole thing just comes across as really plain. Everything doesn't need to be highly busy or plastered in logos but there's a difference between a subtle item and something that's low-effort, too. It's good that it's a Knuckles solo item, excellent for Knuckles fans...and the art is good, but for the price it is, one might expect a little more.
|Wow, a poster that really glows!
This cool colorful Sonic Mania poster has hidden glow in the dark ink...that's only revealed when the lights go out! The regular poster has Sonic, Tails & Knuckles in front of the "Pink Bot" night club, with Mighty & Ray portraits on monitor screens in the walls. There's an Eggman shaped constellation in the sunset sky & wanted posters on the walls. "Club Spin" is on a billboard in the background & the Mania Plus logo is at the bottom.
But, turn off the lights & it glows to highlight details & 'lights' from the scene. The headlights of flying badnik robots are revealed, & all of the character outlines & eyes glow, along with the logo, stars & signs.
This poster is 25 dollars in 2018 at the Sega Shop online...but it is a LARGE poster & glowing ink is costly to use--and it uses quite a lot for its great detail. This is an example of a higher end item being worth while because it has such a fun design, plus a cool gimmick effect that really enhances the item and adds fun along with value.
|This is the "Missing Mighty" poster.
And....it's a little bit overly simple? The idea behind it is fairly cute, a 'wanted' type or 'missing children' type post-up poster, but for Mighty the Armadillo who had not been seen since Knuckles Chaotix. A careful eye would spot several of these (for Mighty & Ray) in other Sonic games as little background nods.
This poster attempts to bring the 'easter-egg' background into real life, with printed on 'stains' and 'tattered' edges like a post up poster. However, the poster itself is a large gray rectangle with the faux edges printed on. It says "Mighty the Armadillo: Have You Seen Him?" But that's it, there's no 'call 555-SONIC' or anything to complete the look of a real poster. Then, it uses the simplified cute-style art from the Mania Youtube Cartoon for Mighty himself. This poster is big too, so it has plenty of space for the design to seem a tad plain. It is 16 dollars in the SegaShop online in 2018
