  6. "Kids, enter this competition and you can come along and pitch your marketing idea to Sega!" So basically, Segagaga was inspired by real life?
  7. In honour of Valentine's Day, I thought I would repost my #segapickuplines that I shared for the SEGA Nerds hashtag last year...

    Sonic Utopia

    It seems that it's also caught Yuji Naka's attention.
  11. Both. Quite surprised by their appearance this year (along with a few other things) considering they've been out for a few years now. It's part of the old Paladone line.

  14. So a couple of years ago, SSMB user -Mark- found a couple of Sonic comics that most of us hadn't seen before. These comics turned out to have originated from the News of the World "Sunday" magazine in the early nineties, but unfortunately it was near impossible to track any others down as they were printed in the supplement and not the actual newspaper. A couple of us did eventually manage to get a few strips together, but the magazines were so hard to find and very expensive when they did pop up, so it was starting to look like we'd never get a complete series of them together, if it was indeed still out there. Around the same time I was in touch with Sonic the Comic artist Richard Elson who confirmed that he was also the artist on these strips as most of us had suspected. He also provided some additional information and it turned out that a few people who worked on the UK Sonic the Hedgehog yearbooks were also involved with these; all of the strips were written and edited by yearbook editor Barrie Tomlinson, and the last chunk were drawn by artist Sandy James. Many of the later Elson strips were coloured by John M Burns wh also worked on STC. Even more interestingly, he told me that he did in fact have an almost complete collection of these in his personal archives and that he would be happy to loan these to me under the condition that I scanned them in and shared them with the community as we thought it would be cool if people were able to see more of them considering how obscure they are. Richard was missing a couple of strips from the collection he gave me, but through the issues that myself and Hogfather had managed to collect, along with Mark's original scans and a few that were uploaded later by Tumblr user hypermikey, we've been able to get an almost complete collection together... so behold... The Sonic Sunday Strips Archive We believe that we're now only two issues away from a complete collection and the episodes that seems to be missing are from the 29th May 1994 and 13th November 1994 magazines. On the off chance that anyone here may have them or know someone who does, we would love to add them just to finish off the archive so everyone can have a look through them. The comics are quite interesting as it ran alongside STC and there are a few little things that seem to link both universes together, despite most people-- even those who were involved with the comic-- not knowing of its existence. For example, we have a strip from 10th April 1994 where Robotnik's new AoStH-inspired design debuts. This was the week after his AoStH design was introduced by Nigel Kitching in the April 1st issue of the comic printed that same year, which also happened to be drawn by Richard Elson. Another episode has Sonic being shrunk by one of Robotnik's inventions and during one part of the strip, he's trapped in a spider's web while miniaturised. I couldn't help but wonder if there was a little nod to this somewhere later in STC when Sonic encounters a giant spider and is trapped in its web during the Shanazar arc (all the way forward in issue #152 in 1999) and mentions that it's his worst nightmare, even though it's something that had never been brought up in the comic at all before. This was also in a strip drawn by Richard Elson. On the whole the comics are generally silly little things without much too detail put into them (as a lot of newspaper comics are), but as a Fleetway fan it's cool to see some small references that may have been nods to my favourite Sonic universe, and it's always nice when something obscure surfaces and is able to be enjoyed by everyone. Again, a MASSIVE thank you goes out to Richard for making this possible, and also to Mark and hypermikey for providing a lot of the pages we were missing. You guys all rock!
  15. Also going to be staying at the Premier Inn. Getting in on Friday afternoon and there until Sunday.
  16. Toy Island released them as a Sonic Adventure line in 2000 in the US. FEVA re-released them as a Sonic X set in 2005. The figures are still dated 2000 and the only difference is the packaging. They then re-released them AGAIN not long after (talking within months, if even that long) with Sonic X voice clips that were also used in their plushies. There was no way to tell the difference unless you pressed them. They were mixed together on the shelves with no visible difference. There was then a third budget re-release from FEVA a while after that was marketed as a collectable figure rather than talking, and it was the same figures without the voice clips and the button was moulded solid. Their plushies also came in two identical looking variations with the two sets of voice clips. Can confirm this all 100% as I purchased all of them new from Woolworths and Toys R Us at the time. All in the UK which I'm quite sure was the only place the FEVA variations were originally sold. Edit: Same also goes for the Tails and Knuckles figures in the lines, not just Sonic.

  24. Seems to be running fine on my Nexus 7... at least gameplay wise... the device itself is getting insanely hot and I've now had to close Runners because it got so bad. It used to get a bit hot on my Z3, but this was just ridiculous. Also, have red ring prices gone up again? Quite bad if so as you now seem to be getting less by default.
