    Surprise! A new set of Sonic the Hedgehog kids meal toys have found their way to select Burger King restaurants in Spain, suggesting that a new global promotion with the fast food chain is imminent. According to reports, the Spanish promotion will run from January 24th and feature five separate toys to collect.

    Hungry and eagle-eyed Sonic fans in Spain have taken to social media to share photos of a promotion that has already begun in various Burger King outlets. The following image, shared by 'Tanillo', shows the full set of toys on offer - which seem to be a selection of interesting gadgets and puzzle blocks. Interestingly, the characters featured include Sonic, Tails and... Super Shadow, for some reason.

    A report from Spanish YouTuber Yuluga confirms the promotion further, discovering imagery that points to a January 24 start date for the rollout. Popular Twitter account 'Tails Channel' also found a video that suggests a global push, although no specifics on countries or dates were given. Finally, various fans have managed to get a hold of some of the toys early, with 'EmmilyHatzu' sharing a photo of the Sonic head toy fresh in its bag.

    Something to note about this: In the ad, you can see electricity go around Sonic as he runs. This would mark the second (or third assuming it's in Prime, and fourth counting Colors Ultimate's Movie Pre-Order Bonus) time this element appeared in something outside of the Sonic Movie, it seems like they're really trying to incorporate it into the Modern Sonic branch, which I think is neat.

    Wouldn't be surprised if they incorporate more Movie elements into it as time passes considering the popularity of the Movies.

    That's odd. This doesn't even appear to be timed to promote anything in particular. Its just here for the brand awareness angle.

     

    That's a different marketing strat then we've seen out of Sega in the past.

    Also worth noting that both Sonic and Tails leap out of movie style Ring Portals. Not 100% original to the movie, but you gotta think that's the approach used for this animation.
