Gfuel Sonic Headphones Steelseries A gift from a company to a company?
It seems so, with this pair of headphones. Steelseries seen in the background there making a mouse, also makes headphones sets and has customized this one to have jumping/peace sign modern Sonic on a nice blue background. It's set to match the art that Gfuel used on their Sonic themed 'peach rings' energy drinks there. It was gifted from the electronics co to the Gfuel co.
You can read about the Gfuel drink over on Sonic Gear Foods USA.
What's too bad about this, is that the headphone is not a general / public release.
It seems to be a small run or some type of gift-only item. It's too bad because it is rather stylish. Photo by Steelseries.
Not an electronic, but an electronic accessory, it's a laptop sleeve with a fun classic theme. It's black and white checkers, with a scattering of classic Sonic arts and rings. It has a zipper top and the zipper pull is a circle /rubber item with a Sonic on there too.
It is nicely Sonic, especially because of the zipper pull. This is a Spencer's Gifts item in 2021, and it should be about 20 dollars.
Sakar Gaming Combo Sonic Set Keyboard Mouse Headphones Sonic
A fun gaming set that's sadly hard to get...
This is the Sakar Sonic Gaming Combo set. It has a Sonic theme rainbow light up gaming mouse (corded) a blue/red theme headphones and a gaming style keyboard.
All 3 items come in the box you see at above left. The dots say "Level up your Gaming" and "Light up the action with Sonic". Modern Sonic is used in CG for the box art. The headphones have the logo in silver on the side, and a Sonic face on the adjuster button thing. The mouse has the logo, the face, as well as rings and 'speed chevrons' along the buttons. What's cool about this, is that it lights up in rainbow colors when you plug it in. The keyboard does the 'gaming usual' with different/red keys for the WASD direction letters, space bar, enter-key and direction arrows. It also adds rings in white to the keyboard, and the logo with face above the direction keys. This lights up rainbow colors too...and so do the rings on the space bar.
Why didn't the Sakar company that made this list it online? It seems like something people would want, but it has not yet been found for sale other than 1 retail shop. You can write in for credit if you know where to get this. Photo by TheSonic Stadium
Razer Xbox Sonic Theme Controller Razer, the well known computer gaming accessory maker gets into the Sonic scene with a fun new Xbox controller in 2022. They let out this nicely done modern themed controler and its charging holder thing. It has a gray/white checker fade for both parts. The grip areas are red (notice that the right one has a white stripe on it to resemble a Sonic shoe!), and the left grip area has jumping-twist modern Sonic art. There are 3 rings across the controller bottom, and a clump of rings on the stand. It also has siloutte palm trees on the stand. There's clearly a phrase of some kind in Japanese on the right side...but what does it say? You can write in for credit if you found a translation.
Game Locker Sonic Controller Stand
An all-new item appears: "The Game Locker"
This is a storage and display type item for your video games and accessories. The round disk at the top says "Unstoppable Speed" and has a Sonic face on it. This part holds your headset. The base is a literal locker, with 2 doors. A red one with stripes theme for Eggman, and a blue one with triangles theme for Sonic as they face off. You can hang your controllers on the sides, and there's a drawer on the bottom for remote controls or wires or accessories and things. The locker part will hold 10 modern style games.
This is spring 2022 item from Numskull. It should be about 53 dollars and can be bought at their website, as well as other online game retailers. Discovered by Taaron, photos by Numskull
Higround Sonic Shadow Keyboard Keyboard maker Higround adds a Sonic license to their selection, and this cool keyboard to their line up. It is a simple keyboard without seperate numpad and...well, you better have memorized every key position because exactly none of them are labeled for what they do. There's a row of mystery keys down the right side, each with a different siloutte style
character face. You can see Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Amy & Shadow there, each on a black or white key. The chao face is obviously the escape key. The company's logo is on the space bar. The theme here is Sonic vs Shadow, with Sonic art all in blue tones on the white half of the keyboard and Shadow all in white tones on the black half. The Sonic is SA1 art style, and Shadow is...hard to tell. It is a stylish keyboard if you know where all the letters and functions are already. Photo by Higround
ASRock Sonic theme Motherboard PC Part Now here's a fun first!
This is the first Sonic themed computer motherboard! ASRock has decided to make a fun themed motherboard with nice Sonic elements. Now that the trend of transparent case PCs is on everywhere, why not show off the interior with a cool motherboard too?
This has white/blue stripes, a Sonic silouette face, a CG gold ring, and Sonic's name on the places that are smooth. It comes in a cool graphic design box (background) that you can also preserve and collect. This is ASRock's factory photo of their item in 2022.
Hori Electronics Switch Control Sonic Hori Electronics makes a cool Nintendo Switch controller in fall season 2022. They're 3rd party, but they have good design going on for the graphics. The left side is white with blue line art for modern Sonic, and the right side is dark blue with full color art for him. (Notice that the right side art has him as a bit of a floating cut-out effect) The left buttons/control are mostly red while the right are all blue. Seen together, it makes for a nice look.
Hori Pad Switch Solid Controller More from Hori Electronics, this time it's a solid Switch controller.
This one won't split in two like the one above, but it is easier to charge it since you just plug it in normally/don't have to snap it to the sides of the system and then dock it to get it to charge.
It has the profile view running modern Sonic art (also used above) as a big splash piece over 2/3 of the controller. It also has bands of blue & white as well as the modern logo. The buttons are red & blue. Notice the positioning of the art, it's such that it's not too broken up by the buttons which shows care in design. This should be on Amazon but may also be at Gamestop in 2022 and 2023.
Cable Guys Classic Amy Controller Holder The Cable Guys just keeps adding more characters!
Now, their line up has Classic Amy, ready to hold the Switch, a phone, or a regular controller for almost anything. (Their previous figures are on the other pages of Sonic Electronics here, and include Sonic, Knuckles & Tails)
The Amy Rose lives up to the line, with nice paint and accurate detail everywhere. They got her shoe laces/bows, ruffle skirt and puffy sleeve shirt. The face/expression looks nice, and it is over all very Amy-like. This is a must-get for Amy fans because
it is (by necesity of what it does) a great and large display figure to collect, whether you use to to hold devices or just have her for display. The price varies, she is in regular retail stores that sell Cable Guys products, as well as Amazon, but should be between 15 and 21 dollars. This is a late 2022, early 2023 item.
Numskull Switch Case Roll Keep your Switch safe on the go (on the roll!) with a case from Numskull.
This case seems to release in early 2023, and features the appropriate slogan "This is how we roll". It is a soft sides/padded sides carrier with rubber reinforced carry handle. The background and 3 color stripes is a tiling 'circuit like' pattern. This carries over into the character rectangle portrait art. However, everybody here is upset!
There's the common Aggressive Knuckles, the less used Frowning Sonic, and Aggrivated Tails. Why choose all aggrivated art for the case? It still looks fine, the art, texture and color choices are still good but it has a bit of a mood. The photo is Numskull's offical one.
Solar Tapping Foot Sonic Display Figure
An electronic item...but all the electricity is solar!
It's Solar Foot Tapping Sonic. So, this is sort of a display figure, but it has a bit of electronic action too, so onto this page it goes.
This is of course, a variation on the old concept of 'solar dancing ___', where the solar panel in the base powers the movement of a little figure. In this case, the panels in the Green Hill themed base power the classic Sonic figure into tapping the foot and lowering the eyelids so that it will look extra annoyed.
Because the mechanism has to be very light weight, it's usually also fairly delicate so having it encased in a plastic box is a requirement. It comes with a green hill background, too. (It is of course, a clever idea, but the result is basically an irritated upset looking Sonic who will agitate and scowl all the while it is on display) This is 30 dollars at Gamestop, but it is likely sold elsewhere too.

Battery Sounds Sonic Gold Rings Toys Jakks Pacific Now you can collect rings too!
Jakks Pacific will release these battery powered electronic sounds rings in 2023. They're motion activated, so grabbing them should make the "Sonic collects a ring" sound from the game. They come with transparent stands so you can balance them easily on surfaces. They look like they should be about life size. There is a battery compartment and on/off switch (that you can see there on the inner part) as expected. The edge of the box explains how they work and how it has sounds from the games. There are 2 per package, and it will likely be about 20 dollars upon release
As you know...Jazwares did the same thing. They had a single (possibly larger) gold ring of the same plastic that also did sounds. However, it was only the 'multiple / row of rings' sound, not the single chime. Hopefully these will have the ability to do more than one sound. (It makes the most sense that when you pick up 1 ring, you hear the sound of picking up 1 ring!)
Opinion zone:
I really love life size prop items to own, that the characters in games/movies whatever interact wtih. Sonic's shoes I can wear? Gimme. Rings? Collect 'em. Swords/magic things/whatever from the franchise that I can get too, I just really like to have it, so these are automatically a fun idea in the opinion zone.
Sonic 2 Heads Walkie Talkies MIP This isn't the first set of Sonic themed walkie talkies...
But it is the first set of them where both of it is his same head. Usually they would do a different character (Ex. Shadow) so you could at least tell them apart. These both use the forward facing/somewhat-aggressive expression for modern Sonic. The sound holes are all over the forehead (as where else could you put his face is always going to end up perforated I guess) As is the usual, they're battery operated, with the battery door on the back. The company that makes these is not revealed (usually it's somewhere on the front of the package...) The dot on the package says how you can use these to stay in communication with your friends.
These are a Walmart item that is being released in Spring 2023, and it should be about 19 dollars. (What section of the store would these be in? Electronics? Toys maybe?) It's reasonably priced enough, the package shows them off well (for MIB collectors) A solid, if a bit unusual Sonic item.
