|Modern Only Sonic Electronics
Either with batteries or electricity, these Sonic items can entertain. This page showcases ONLY modern style electronics. The other pages have a mixture, but this page is all about current things with post-Sonic Adventure styles or themes. This page also includes electronics accessories, like game cases, skins or special styluses. For interesting Sonic electronics or stuff to make your items cooler with Sonic style, this is the page to see.

|Finally, in 2023, Cable Guys gets the modern Sonic license. (Why did it take them so long to get it? It's a bit of a mystery because modern characters make more sense for modern systems which these things hold)
Of course, the first controller-holder figure they choose is Modern Sonic, seen here with a Playstation controller. These are weighted/tilted properly to hold most electronics including video game controllers, phones, and more. (So, the character always looks like it is leaning back a little in its pose, when not holding the item)
This uses their usual open front box design. It is at Target, but it might be a Target exclusive?
In person, the eye color part for him might be a little small making him slightly off model looking and the head may not be a smooth as this picture. It's not a huge deal, but it also isn't a perfect item, especially at 30 dollars which is the price when it appears in spring 2023.
|Taking your Switch on the go? Protect it in Sonic style with this official case. It's a rubbery semi-hard-sides zipper edge case with nylon carry handle on top. It has a blue & white theme with modern logo, white checkers, and Sonic's name spelled out in Japanese (it says 'the hedgehog' at the bottom in the small print) The main design is this 'sideways spikes' forward facing modern Sonic head|
|which takes up the whole left side with a determined look. This is a spring 2023 release.|
|Fun and interesting!
It's the first official Sonic Waffler! This is Uncanny Brands Sonic Mini Waffle Iron. Uncanny Brands goes all around aquiring licenses for loads of different franchises, and in Summer 2023, they got a modern Sonic license. The mini waffle iron has a yellow bottom (resemble a ring) and the top is dark blue with various arts for Sonic, Tails, Knuckles and Amy scattered all over, with emeralds and rings. The modern logo is in the middle.
Of course, the waffles it makes have to have a fun Sonic face on there...and they've chosen a good one/stock art to make the custom steel/non-stick coated 'grid'. Each waffle comes out with a Sonic on one side. This should be about 27.99, and will be at Amazon, Target & Walmart (eventually) but it is a good idea to try and buy it in person because online
|the shipping is always pretty costly. (Metal thing is heavy)
Stuff like this is super fun. Who wouldn't want Sonic waffles while watching Sonic cartoons? Any Sonic appliance is an automatic must-have.
|Sakar, a headphones/electronics company that has many brands, aquires a modern license and makes a pair with an error.
These are the "Sonic Over Ear Kids Headphones". They're wired headphones with clear thought put into the design. The ear pads are gold rings, and look for the row of rings on the headband top too. There are forward-facing rubber semi-3d Sonic facies on each of the ear pieces.
Did you spot the error?
This ear interior is not colored in. They clearly have the color (lower face), so what happened here? This is a factory photo, so it might be a prototype...but it looks like it just got missed somehow. This entry will be updated if it is proven either way. Do notice they got the Sega copyright, it appears under the band near the head top pad. These are on Amazon and are 20 dollars, which is reasonable for something like this.
|Power-A , a company who has had the Sonic license before, updates with some Nintendo Switch items. All 3 appear at the same time, BUT the UK area will get them first in late summer 2023. They're expected in the USA in Fall 2023. Power-A reliably sells to both areas online and at retail.
The color scheme for all the items is the same, blue with yellow/jagged lines and screen tone dots with a different action art of Modern Sonic. The controller is wired only, and has running Sonic, the switch games wallet style nylon case has kick Sonic and the Switch system case has figure 8 peel out Sonic. It's a firm/foam sides zipper case with top handle.
|The wallet style game case has a velcro closure and flips open like a trifold wallet would. It has transparent pockets for 24 different games inside.
*Remember: folders like this really put "all the eggs in 1 basket": unless you really know what's up, games come in hard plastic individual cases for a reason--don't keep 100s of dollars worth of stuff in 1 tiny spot...usually.

|The company Real MZ comes onto the scene strong with a showing of 3 different corded Switch controllers. Each has a different character theme so you can choose Sonic, Tails or Knuckles. The buttons are mostly themed to that characters' color|
|as is the wire. Sonic is pictured on Emerald Hill, Tails is in the Seaside Zone and Knuckles is in Sky Sanctuary. Each one also features a badnick on the opposite corner. If you look carefully there are slogans behind Tails & Knuckles, but not Sonic. (Time to Fly & No Time For Games, respectivly) Each controller should retail for 40 dollars and will likely be at Amazon, Bestbuy and probably Gamestop.|
