|This is a "Pixel Frames".
The company makes lots of different classic video game scenes as layered art to hang on your wall like this. In their first round, they choose classic Sonic in his loop in the Green Hill Zone. The depth of the frame and various layers give it a fun dimension. It would be a good item to decorate in a video games room or a Sonic room. (Can you spot Buzz Bomber?)
This isn't very big, seemingly only 6 x 6 inches. It is sold by Walmart, and may also be on their website in winter 2020. (Possibly popular, low supply reported) It should be about 14.99, if you can find it in stores in the 'kids room decor' aisle/area. This is a fun idea, with good execution, it really does look just like the game.
|More decor for your walls!
Now here's an idea who's time you'd think would have LONG already come. It's such an easy concept, too. However, in Winter 2020, comes the first framed Sonic wall art. In a black plastic frame, there's a blue rectangle with a line-less art of jumping/twist Modern Sonic. He has the modern logo under his feet all across the bottom.
This would be good for a Sonic room or a video game area, of course...so why then were only posters made for so long previously? Whatever the answer, it's here now and it's pretty stylish. The lineless art is nice, the pose is fresh enough...but the eye looks somehow a little thin? The mouth is a little too ambiguous without a border also? This can be found at Books A Million stores in the US, but it might also be sold elsewhere. Photo by Taaron
|Well, here's...an item.
It's a ceramic cookie jar! Of just Tails' head. It's very nicely executed (via guillitene? A rotten play on words) with really good sculpting for something ceramic like this. The ear angles, the 3D factor of the ears and the handling of the 'bangs' hair is all very nice. The face is completely proportional with properly shaped eyes, small nose, the center smile...the fur for the cheek tufts all of it is great. The eyes are nicely shaded/blue etc too.
This is made by Just Funky in winter 2020. Where will they sell it?
Opinion zone: It should have been a bust rather than a decaptiated action figure head looking thing like this where you lift off the cranium. It's super well done but it's also a bit wierd at the same time.
|Just Funky enters the water bottle scene with this pixel themed bottle.
They have chosen the annoyed/foot-tapping sprite for Sonic for the bottle's art. He's only on one side, as it's a clear bottle. The rest of it is covered in a pattern of small pixelated gold rings. The cap is blue/ordinary. It probably has a re-use-able straw.
But what's going on at the bottom there?
Clearly, there's something inside, and it is re-use-able re-freeze-able ring shaped ice cubes! These chill your drink without diluting it, so long as you remember to dump them out, wash them, and put them back into the freezer after each use. Other bottles have had emeralds shapes that do this same thing--however, they are a great pack in/tie in item and really do add to the fun. Sonic themed ice!
Reusable bottles reduce waste and let you stay hydrated and healthy with whatever you want to drink always on hand. Plastic-enclosed ice also stays cool longer. Discovered by The HydroHomies
|Just Funky brings more items for 2020.
In this case it is 2 cups seen when they attended a trade show of some sort/displaying their wares. This photo is likely by JF itself. The first is another travel type cup with reusable blue plastic straw and red lid. It's gray, and uses the new/lesser used sly/shrug Sonic in a star ring. The art for him is all black line with white detail. His name is spelled below in Japanese characters.
The small item is likely to be a tumbler, or if the plastic cup is small, then it's a shot style glass. This is quite colorful and has a tilted modern logo. There's jumping/pointing full color Sonic in a star. Other splotches, blue and orange stars are all over the background. This cup will likely appear with its own entry if it's found/fan photos to tell exactly what's going on with it.
|TWO mugs in 1 box?
Take a blast into the past to see this 1990s unusual item in it's interesting packaging. Generally mugs are sold one at a time, but this arcade console shaped box contains two Sonic theme mugs. The first has the hands on hips shaded stock art with a vaguely blue background. The second has speed running Sonic with the 'blurry blue trail' all behind him. Both are otherwise normal white ceramic mugs.
The more interesting bit of it is the packaging. It's large, to accomodate 2 mugs stacked on top of each other & padding. The bottom part of the console has the Sonic 3 'checkered sphere gathering special stage' as its background, which instantly tells you the year it was released around. It announces '2 mugs', shows a photo of each and has logos on the top & front. The 'screen' of the console is difficult to see/may have damage in the photo. It uses art for the joystick and buttons. This is a great and cute way to pack the mugs--it's too bad it has only now been discovered in 2020...maybe it was rare?
|Just Funky enters the fleece market with this blanket for 2020.
It is that normal 'fleecy material', and it's fairly simple. It's all a dark blue, with a classic Sonic silouhette in all black, except the eyes (to make it kind of 'Sonic team logo ish a little') It spells out his name vertically in Japanese letters near the left edge. The Sonic graphic is so large that it deliberately goes off the bottom and right edge a little bit.
This is a decent fleece if you needed a blanket somewhere that is not too busy with fussy designs or going wild with colors. The size, price and date are unknown. This appeared at a toy fair and is slated for Fall 2020. You can write in for credit if you find where this is for sale.
|Here's a beach towel for Sonic 2.
This MAY have been an item that was released in both USA and UK areas/but nothing's been proven. It's a normal, long/large size beach towel with red border. It uses the fully shaded but seldom-used "Sonic is pulling Tails forward" stock art. They're just placed on a curve/swirl abstract background. The classic logo is in full color at the top, and you can see the tiny black Sega copyright there down in the corner.
This was not a Japan art, as you can notice their shoes aren't shaped correctly, Sonic only has the 1 row of spikes and they're kind of misplaced, while Tails is not the orange color he should be. (There's also something slightly off about the face?) But, this isn't the same art/artist that was doing bad/ugly Tails either.
This would have released along side or right after Sonic 2...but it's uncommon wherever it was, because this photo only turned up in 2020.
|Diamond Select, makers of (usually) display figure type stuff has now come up with a coin bank / money box. This is a 2020 item, and it's...kinda odd? It's modern Sonic & he's supposed to be spinning/rolling. However, this video game action doesn't seem to translate all that well into a physical 3D item? His spikes are there, sure, but they needed (I guess) some kind of 'blue swirl energy' or something to really form him into the ball shape needed to craft the item. His shoes are right up past his cheeks & his nose is out past either his tail or the end of the 'energy swirl' You could probably roll the bank along the ground/but not too well.|
|This seems to be an item that was better in theory than it was in practice. It's also (apparently) not the easiest to find, as it was supposed to be at Walmart and then...kind of wasn't? It is probably a little larger than an average human fist in size. How much it is or where it is, is unknown.|
|Here's something that looks like a fake but isn't.
It is an old, plastic alarm clock with a Sonic theme. It is *Probably* a USA or possibly a UK item/it is unconfirmed. But, if you imagine it without the packaging...it looks kinda cheap and fake. The only 'Sonic' thing about the clock is the artwork on the face that is just cheap cardboard with the numbers on it. The clock itself is kind of shifty looking red plastic and extremely generic. This is a low-effort item...but the packaging is what confirms it's probably authentic.
The whole back card (since it's bubble-carded) is highly designed with chaos emeralds and rings flying everywhere, buzz bombers from Sonic 1 & then AOSTH early Robotnick in his egg o matic up there. The company seems to be called "Quartz Alarm", which is also a fairly generic name, but it's impossible to read anything else on the old package.
|Bootleggers generally don't package items, don't do good package design if they do, and they espeically don't like having a company name on anything, nor will they bother with barcodes--which is what all of this has on it.|
|Just Funky releases another 'fleecy blanket', this tyme with classic style.
It's pixel-Sonic, shown in the 'waiting sprite' position that he would do if you left the controller alone in the old Genesis games. He's shown in Green Hill (of course) with just the sky, the ground and 2 rings. The classic logo is in full color at the top. The appeal for the blanket would depend on how well you think pixel art translates into large items/how well it holds up. It's also 'annoyed Sonic' really large on the bed or couch. It's an ok idea, and it is quite Sonic-like...but...it could have used to be a little more interesting? More fun somehow? It's a fine item, but it's not super extra cool either.
|This is called the Graffiti Deck Sonic Mug.
It's in the Sega Shop in fall 2020, for about 15 dollars. It's called "Deck" because the "Sonic Speed" yellow circle with modern face on one side of the mug is to resemble a 'deck sticker' which is what's applied to skateboard decks.
The other side has the 'drippy' graffiti peace sign Sonic where he is full of other art/characters in color on the areas that would be blue. The mug is otherwise a normal, black ceramic
|and is normally sized. With nice art for each side of the mug that doesn't need wrapping-around to appriciate, this is a good and colorful piece. Not a bad choice!|
|Appearing in December of 2020, this is the "Happy Holiday Sonic Mug".
It is in the Sega Shop online only, and should be about 20 dollars. While it's title is 'holiday', it clearly means 'Christmas' because there are blue stockings with an 's' on them, a wreath with traditional bells, Christmas light strings, and classic Sonic is in a Santa hat. There are also ornament balls, stars, bows and rings scattered around. Sonic is coming through the wreath (as if it was the title ring) to offer out a wrapped present.
The busy nature, primary colors and classic Sonic all combine to help the mug feel like an old-school type item. It seems 90s in its nature. It is a cute enough mug to help decorate for the holidays.
