  1. That's the one! Is there a proper scan of that page anywhere, higher resolution etc? Since that page was only in the variant cover release, and that goes for insane prices now, it's essentially lost media.
  2. It was "15-16" in the Japanese version of Sonic Jam. It was only "16" in the American/European editions.
  3. "Approximate age: 18 (but it's kind of hard to tell)." The Japanese version of Sonic Jam lists his age as "15-16". It wasn't until Sonic Adventure that he was given a definitive age, 15. He's been 15 ever since. Amy, Knuckles, Vector and Espio's ages all changed between the Classic series and the Modern series, some getting older and some getting younger. Charmy is also younger than his original American age (he wasn't given an age in Japan).
  4. Which model sheets are you referring to? The ones seen in Sonic Jam didn't have any definitive heights. The Classic Sonic cast model sheets in the art assets DVD (circa 2008/2009) did have the Sonic Adventure era heights on them, but this was before Sonic Generations, where we saw the two Sonics side by side for the first time. The art has also been modified from the originals. Compare the original Knuckles to the modified Knuckles, for example. The stripe on Knuckles' shoe is the biggest tell that these changes were made years after the fact. The yellow stripes on his shoes were curved in all the art from Sonic 3 through to the 1998 Sega calendar. In all the 21st century Classic Knuckles art the stripes are made of straight lines. A lot of the "old" art on 21st century Classic Sonic merchandise has been updated from the originals in subtle ways.
  5. G.I. Joe, Transformers and My Little Pony are all Hasbro properties.
  6. Some of these weren't "actual" names for the character, they were supposed to be disparaging nicknames Sonic would use. https://forums.sonicretro.org/index.php?posts/268747/ Other relevant links: https://forums.sonicretro.org/index.php?posts/268804/ https://forums.sonicretro.org/index.php?posts/268696/ https://forums.sonicretro.org/index.php?posts/412455/ https://forums.sonicretro.org/index.php?threads/dr-badvibes.6657/
  7. Sonic 3 and Sonic & Knuckles were released in that period.
  8. It would be grossly irresponsible. “Environmentalism can be a bad thing” is a poor message to send children in a world on the verge of environmental collapse. There’s no “both sides”.
  9. I don't think having a villainous environmentalist would be a good look, given that we're on the verge of climate change disaster while world leaders put corporate interests before the future of human and animal life.
  10. Those taller characters are the Sonic the Hedgehog Band members. Max (monkey), Mach (rabbit) and Sharps (parakeet/parrot). Vector is in another one.
  11. They were in production at the same time. Sonic the Hedgehog began development first, then Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog came about as a compromise when ABC balked at the idea of extra Sonic the Hedgehog episodes being produced for syndication.
  12. When you begin a sentence with "Actually" it implies that the thing you're responding to is factually incorrect. I didn't mention the cartoon characters at all.
  13. Sega owns all the IDW Sonic comic characters. The previous comic's character rights problems came from '90s era Archie messing up by either not getting the writers/artists to sign work for hire contracts, or losing their records of the work for hire contracts. After that fiasco, there's no way anyone involved would allow that to happen again.
