Sonic Plush HUB Page
This page has only MODERN (post-Sonic Adventure-era) plush dolls.
This page will have a focus on 2015-2019 plushes, likely from GE Entertainment,Tomy. With plushes showing up at offline retail stores and online at more places like Amazon & Target, plush availability seems to be on the rise. Sonic Boom plushes will NOT appear here, as they have their own seperate page.
Strange Silver Sonic Plush Big Prize What is this strange prize?
It's a Kelly Toy plush of Sonic, but made in all silver-tone fabric. All of him is the same color, except the bottoms of his (imporperly shaped) shoes & eyes. The eye color has also been changed to gray, to be more fitting for the fabric of the doll. Notice how there's no 'belly dot' in his pattern, it was simply eliminated because he is monocrhome here. Notice it still has their poorly design joices like floppy ears, bad brows, fat wrong-shaped feet & generally floppy appearance.
Smaller sizes of this silver Sonic have been found, but this one is really big because it is a carnival prize. It's also pretty old least here in 2018. (So, it has not been won for ages--that or no one selected it because they don't know who it's supposed to be)
What this is: It's an attempt to be a 'special edition', like the famous Japanese "pale dolls" where they were done in all white fabric, or all pastels. However, because Kelly Toy's pattern is so UN-special it just ends up looking really odd. Photo by: BFox
Tomy Classic Super Sonic Doll
It's Tomy's classic Super Sonic!
And...he looks a lot better than the prototype that was previously shown. The face is better structured & so is the expression. But, what's wrong with the spikes? The top one doesn't look like it is pointing up properly in this photo. He's shown here at a toy-show, so there still may be time to correct the pattern. ALL the spikes need to be pointing upward for it to be a real "Super Sonic". Sure the ears are a bit tiny, but at least he has ear borders. The gloves also look like the finger-lines are missing. Hopefully this is another (better) but still unfinished doll. Photo discovered by Pichu97/Charlie
Tomy Big Size Classic Plushes in Box Here are Tomy's new 'big size' classic style plushes on store shelves. They come in 'seat boxes' where the front & top are open & the doll is strapped sitting in the 'floor'. Notice the 'pixel holes' cut outs there in the top corner to continue their theme from their other figures & toys.
The plushes themselves are pretty good, with Tails likely being the better of the two. He's classic, cute with his 'center smile' & good bangs.
Sonic's head shape is ok, but then...the ears aren't really right. They're tall and conical, but the ear-borders are still not quite there yet as they are on other plush. Notice that these are at a Toys R Us, and those are out of business now in 2018. So, where will these appear next/now & how much will they cost? Photos by Taaron
Tomy Classic Sonic Turn Arounds Tomy's Classic Style Super Sonic small plush is released! In early summer 2018, this small size doll appears in stores. You can compare it with Tomy's own toy fair photo above, on this page.
He did, in fact, get a few minor improvements it seems before he hit retail store shelves. They did add finger details (though they're very tiny) to his gloves. The shoe buckles appear to be embroidered details & his socks are a little more proportional. The top spike still isn't "up" enough, but his others seem more elevated as it should be for the look. As you can see, with the finger in the photo, this isn't a very large plush at all. Considering the size & the improvements, it's still a decent enough collectible & super Sonic is scarce anyway. The tag is a simple stock art portrait in an orange swirl with the classic logo. It's simple, but that's the idea they are going for here. Photo & owned by Pichu97/Charlie
Mystery Modern Puppet This is a puppet.'s also a bit of a mystery. Certainly, there were old, classic official Sonic puppets but a modern one? Where is it from? Is this really a USA item? If so, where was it sold and how much was it? Was it part of a set or something?
The 'problem' with it is, that it's too well made to be suspected of something fake. The face has decent proportions the eyes are placed right & made of quality has tidy little hands & glove cuffs & even the head shape seems right. (The neck is thick because it is a puppet) But really...puppets are kind of old fashion so it's a little odd that something would make a new one like this. Write in for credit if you can clear something up about this odd item. Photo discovered by by Pichu97/Charlie
Tomy Plushes Vector Amy Eggman Here are the first fan photos of these Tomy Plushes 'in the wild'. They're in a plush bin at a store. Rather than the stock photos the company has provided, this is what they'll look like when you find them. As you can see....they don't really live up to other company's efforts. Vector's arms are sort of disproportionate, Amy's face looks somewhat flat & Eggman's hands are somehow way too big. They're clearly trying for 'hand positioning',
which results in nice thumbs for Amy (no 'paddle mitten hands') but makes Eggman's a bit mutant. This is an in-store rather than in-home photo because the price is generally really steep for smaller size dolls with only ok quality, as these are. Photos by Taaron
Tomy Poses Plush Selection Here is another photo for Tomy's upcoming plushes in 2018. They're all from the line of "Pose Plush" except the Knuckles, who belongs with their classic line. Notice how each of the 'pose' characters has arms that are 'doing something'.
The Shadow has one open hand and one fist, also one elbow is bent & he's clearly looking off to one side.
The Tails has both elbows bent, and one arm is naturally raised. Silver is perhaps the most dynamic out of everyone here, and is actually quite interesting. They've actually got him gesturing with his psychic palms as he does in the game. The chest fur piece is actually large too, and dimensional. His expression is rather aggrivated, though.
The classic Knuckles is their weakest offering, look at his tiny, flat fists. There's even an un-quality thin lame folded-over thumb there too. He's odd to see, because the 'pose plush' do such a good job in this case, but they completely under-value his...well...the feature he's named for: Big fists & knuckles.
These Pose Plushes could be one of Tomy's best Sonic plush efforts so far. Shadow's spikes look good, his head shape is right, all his details are there, the Tails is pretty cute, & the Silver is actually pretty darn super. If it lives up to the photos, these may be on a fan's list of "do buy!" Photos discovered by Pichu97/Charlie
Tomy Vector Plush Turns Here's the turn-around for Tomy's Vector plush. He's ok, especially when considered from all sides. Though, he's not that large and is generally around 15 or 16 dollars. This shows how extra-long the arms are & that the legs are really determined to be sticking right out of the sides of the body.
His details are all there, like 3D spikes, the chain, headphones & shoe/glove/buckle details. The tail is sculpted with a bit of a curve, and one hand is doing a thumbs-up. His eyes are meant to be having a bit of an expression. These photos are taken in a Target store, where you MAY be able to find these, if they can keep them in stock. In all it's an 'ok' plush of a less common character. Nothing super amazing, but not terrible either. He's not going to take up a lot of space, but is slightly costly for the size and quality you get.
Kellytoy 32 vs 28 inch big Shadow Plushes It's time to dare to compare again with Kelly Toy character sizes.
This time, it's their Shadow plushes. The larger one here is the 32 inch, while the smaller is their 28 inch. Many people claim that 'all their size is from making the legs super noodly-long', but this photo proves that's not entirely true. You can see that the body, shoes & head are substancially larger.
Kelly Toy, being a prize-plush maker was never too big on pattern perfection, which is exposed here because his shoe soles have no details & the ears are somewhat floppy. His eyes are too close together (as usual) but the glove/shoe and arm/leg color details are all present.
It's nice to be able to see these larger sizes next to each other for a real comparison so you know what you're getting if you're not buying in person. Photo & owned by Cassandra
Caltoy Classic Sonic Story Tag One of the first things to go off of a plush is the paper tag. After all, it doesn't have the durability of fabric. So, here's a nice look at Caltoy's famous Sonic's paper tag. It was a fold-over with a blurb inside so now you can finally know what it says. "Hi my name is Sonic the Hedgehog, I'm the blue superhero hedgehog with an attitude that's been providing hours of enjoyment to video-gamers world0wide. It's no surprise that kids love me cause I'm Way Past Cool! But I got a problem and I need you help. I like to do everything fast. With my Super Sonic Spin, I can get lots done but I don't have the time to hang around this place. T hat's where you come in and how I get out -- take me with you! It will be just you and me beginning a whole new adventure together. And I promise you it will be fantastic fun or my name isn't...Sonic the Hedgehog!

Tomy Silver at EB Games Plush Here's Tomy's Silver plush in-store.
He was released alongside their other modern characters like Amy, Vector & a Chao, so where you find those, you'll likely find him too. In this case it is at an EB Games store in winter 2018. With this non-factory photo what you see is how the doll will be when you find it in stores. It's ok, a fair representation of him, especially for a smaller size like this. They use real furry fabric for the chest fur & embroidered details for his gloves. He IS posed on purpose with one hand out to do the telekenisis. His head is a bit less 'domed' than the factory photos. The eye & mouth embroidery is ok, but the lower face comes across a bit odd, as does 1 un-cooperating spike there on the left side. These are still around 14.99 or so where you find them. Photo by BFox
Tomy Big 25 inch Classic Sonic Plush Here is Tomy's largest Sonic plush (so far)
This is their Classic style big Sonic doll. He's been seen before, but this is the fan-photo of how the released item really looks. He comes sitting in his cardboard display open-box. (So, be sure to inspect to see if he's clean before you buy)
The ears barely have any border, and the nose is somehow super tiny? (Usually 'big nose' is a problem, but this one has a micro nose that's also pretty flat/sewn on flat at the base) Where are his legs? You have to assume they're a bit folded / perspective of the box is messing it up, but the box should enhance the doll, not hide a feature. His fingers are pretty simple (just thread dividers on the glove surface) and short, which is a little unusual for a plush of this size. The face proportions / eye shape & spikes seem good, leaving the nose as the only big issue. It's not a terrible plush by any measure, the fabric quality looks good, the size is nice, & the pixel-edge look box/seat is fun too. This was supposed to be at Toys R Us in the USA, but where is it now?
70 Inch Shadow Plush Stand Photo The biggest!
This is Kelly Toy's BIGGEST (known) Shadow plush, at a whopping 70 inches! (That's 5 foot 8 inches) He's super big...and actually pretty cool. The giant size means the shoe & glove details really work. They also couldn't skimp on the hands/fingers size/proportion and detail, either. The head shape is even good, as are the spikes. The ears are simple flat triangles that flop down (too bad) but the eys, expression & lower face are good.
Kelly Toy isn't known for their powerful quality, but really this guy's not bad at all! He's not 'all leg' or noodly, either, like some other sizes. Shadow is filled with those styrofoam pellets at this size, to save on materials & weight cost. At right, you can see him compared with their 50 inch & 30 inch sizes, which are regular polyfill stuffed. If you have the space...this is a fun plush to own! Photo & owned by Cassandra
70 Inch Shadow Plush Compare 3
Opinion zone: I consider this "Life Size", and thereby, feel it is cooler than other dolls. I never really thought Sonic characters looked 'right' when they were these dinky, 3 foot high "tiny animals" type portrayals. Having them as tall as a regular human always looked/felt more "realistic"* to me, these giant dolls are automatically cooler.
The temptation to modify it would be there as well, like fixing the hands into having individual fingers, stuffing it with polyfill in the body or maybe adding 'funnoodle' strips to make it pose-able so it becomes more like a soft action figure to pose for fun photos or just to be able to stand out of the way since it takes up a lot of space by its very nature. Keeping a giant plush out of harms' way (harm being sunlight, moisture of the air, dust, pets, toppling off of stuff, powdery mildew, or any of the problems that can beset fabric) is also a consideration in collecting. However, something like this is a great collection centerpiece & a rare prize to own!

*I have no idea why. They are very abstract characters no-matter how you slice it.

6 Flags over New Jersey Win Knuckles Plush Winnable modern plush are BACK in 2019!
After the 'boom ban problem' is gone, theme parks and arcades are now allowed to have back modern style character prize plushes. And this nice, big size Knuckles is proof. He's also proof that the new company, Toy Factory is up to doing a good job (Better than previous companies it seems) while still having carnival quality. The eyes are fabric, so they're not going to unravel/scratch up or be sewn on wrong. The fabric is light weight, but still able to keep the shape well. They have not left out any details, and the fists & shoes are nice and big and normal looking. His eyes are a little tall, but the head shape & expression seems good.
There's a cloth tag and paper tag (inset) which has the copyrights and Toy Factory logo. This was won at Six Flags over New Jersey & other characters were also seen elsewhere. *Franchise parks like 6Flags will generally have the same vendor set supplying all of them with items.
This uses the 'carnival style' stuffing technique where some of it has polyfill while other parts are full of the lighter/less expensive styrofoam beads styropellets for weight & cost purposes. This is typical of large dolls that are also prizes. If you want one of these large plushes, it looks like you've got to win. It looks like prizes are off to a solid start in 2019.

Super Sonic Modern 12 Inch Tomy
Here is Tomy's large size modern style Super Sonic plush.
This one was far less common than their small line, which was confirmed to appear several times in Target stores. (Either in the toy aisle or with the video games) Where was this big one even sold? Like their other big dolls, he comes sitting in the cardboard display 'chair' with their signature die cut 'pixel styel' edges. It makes for an ok presentation, but stores can't stack it, and the doll is exposesd to getting dirty in the store before purchase.
And the plush is....ok..ish? Sonic's head appears somewhat squashed here as it's too low/flat. Then, they have him looking off to one side for some reason, but it doesn't work as well with the flat flap nose they used that's always bending off to either side. The box doesn't give the legs an accurate presentation (you can see they're scrunching up here) The spikes are turned upward, but they seem rather small, especially for a rendition of modern Sonic.
The hands seem a little small. It's basically not terrible, but not fantastic, either. However, it was one thing: expensive. This costly doll was likely around 40 dollars for a 12 inch doll that's only an 'ok' likeness. It's not as exciting as GE plushes. High cost, only so-so design & general scarcity upon release probably leads it to be uncommon.
