I'm having trouble thinking of many items we (americans) would get that you wouldn't. The only thing that comes to my mind is that the UK will be getting the chess board while the US won't. About the only things the US has that you don't would be a lot of Jazwarwes items and GE Animation items. However both of those companies are liecensed to sell to you. SEGA realises the majority of the fan base resides in the UK. I don't see why they wouldn't take that into account. We all get our special exclusive stuff every now and again.
I don't think you guys in the states are quite aware of how much stuff you actually get over the UK.
Yeah theres a lot of stuff thats only out in the UK, although much of it is quite bad, all that Sonic Stationary stuff for example, theres only 2 maybe 3 things in all that stuff which is desireable.
In terms of "AMERICA GETS EVERYTHING" theres so much that I'd gladly swap a lot of the UK exclusive stuff for. e.g.
Jazwares figures. We don't get any of the TRU exclusive brands. We don't get any of the comic combo packs, we don't get any of the larger play kits e.g. the Big & Froggy/Robotnik/Metal Sonic/ASR set.
Spencers: I have never seen any of the stuff that Spencers sell for sale in the UK or even in mainland Europe for that matter I don't see that changing any time soon. The shot glasses that were quite popular, as well as the snuggie and various other items, never seen the light of day over here.
GE Entertainments entire catalogue: This thing is enormous. I have bought a lot of stuff made by GE, mainly pin badges as well as a few plushies... know what they all have in common, I've had to resort to ebay sellers or inflated prices because there was no way to get them here in the UK or mainland Europe. And it's a list of products that keeps growing just today I got my imported Super Sonic plush, something that I doubt will ever be for sale over here.
Today Mikeblastdude found this whilst out shopping
. I bet none of that stuff makes it over here either.
In that last year, what has the UK/Europe got which people have wanted on mass? I can only think of two things.
The PMS Eggman plush & The Sonic Generations C.E.
