Sonic 25th Anniversary

Two and a half decades ago the world was blessed with Sonic the Hedgehog and today TOMY brings the celebration right to your home with the Sonic 25th Anniversary Figure Pack with Coins. This delightful little stroll down memory lane comes packed with Sonic, Knuckles, and Tails in their classic style dating all the way back from 1991. Oh my, where has the time gone?

The coins fit in their hands!

These little guys stand at 2.5 inches in height and feature five points of articulation. Before you get too impressed by that number it’s worth noting their heads, hands (at the wrist) and feet only turn, while their shoulders allow for a full range of motion, their legs only move back and forth. Not a total deal breaker as several toy collectors tend to keep their hot little collectibles in the box. The paint has a bit of a metallic finish to it, leaving each one of the cuties with a sparkle and shine. Those of you looking for a matted finish will be disappointed, but they will stand out quite nicely if you’re displaying them for the world to see. The collectible coins have a nice weight to them with one side displaying either Sonic, Knuckles or Tails while the other clearly reads “25th Anniversary Sonic The Hedgehog.”

The Sonic 25th Anniversary Figure Pack retails for $20 and strikes me as a no-brainer for all you Sonic fans out there. Over the course of the last 25 years this blue streak has appeared in 26 games across 15 platforms. That’s quite a legacy and we would be silly to not mention his animated series, comic books, and upcoming feature film to be produced by Tim Miller (Deadpool). Perhaps one day TOMY will add the nefarious Doctor Eggman and Amy Rose into the mix. In the meantime, Sonic, Knuckles, and Tails are a must have for your geeky collection.
