  1. Why does Cobar look like he's regressed back into Sega Sonic territory, his face and muzzle, most of it beyond the elongated tail look like Penders Echidna llustrations from the Archie comics. He doesn't even look like Lara-Su muzzle wise etc, who is meant to be the same species.
  2. IDW's Sonic the Hedgehog (coming 2018)

    I'm loving the cover art tho, the expressions are great! Eggman doing the old "L" for loser sign etc too. It seems we are getting a continuation of the expressive cast from the post reboot era of Archie and the Mega Drive issues which is all good in my book.
  3. IDW's Sonic the Hedgehog (coming 2018)

    Three months in is pretty darn fast by comic standards. Altho #1-4 all come out in a month which is also fast, what would be four months is now one.
  4. IDW's Sonic the Hedgehog (coming 2018)

    Shadow? So soon... I thought we would get some more time with the main cast before we got to the randomness with convoluted plot that is Shadow. I can only hope he's actually interesting this time around but I won't hold my breath. Butting in on Sonics first showdown with Eggman in the new comic isn't a good start tho..
  5. Do you think they will fix the Hydrocity slides? Dunno if it was just me, but it was a bit weird having them run down the slides that had water going down them, without going into the sliding animation. Or was that intended? First time I got up to Hydrocity was fully expediting an epic slide like in Sonic 3, and just nothing...they just keep on running.

    You and me both! I was a bit let down they didn't bring him back as a boss or even a backdrop item in Generations in Sky Sanctuary. He was in that Lego Dimensions DLC Sonic Pack thing as a boss tho wasn't he? Where it goes through all the old versions of Metal Sonic. I would love to see that version back in the games, maybe Mania 2 could be a good excuse. He's the only Metal Sonic type unit to be able to turn into an almost super form using the Master Emerald too, and that was wicked crazy back in the day when you got up to that boss fight. Knocking him down then the feign, backpedal and BAM Super Mecha Sonic. Blew my little kid mind.

    Doesn't Sega have that "only one Metal Sonic" mandate they would have to circumnavigate to use something like the Metallix?
  8. Sonic Mania Adventures (New Mini Cartoon Series)

    Agree with a lot of your post, this got my attention tho. Care to point me in the direction of these current rumors? Either on here or via message. Would be appreciated I would imagine regardless of what direction Van originally wanted that the movie will end up a "Modern" branch of some sort. Even with the popularity of Mania I can't see them opting for the classic era vibe for a Hollywood movie sadly.
  9. Sonic Mania Adventures (New Mini Cartoon Series)

    Hmm..something just crossed my mind. When Sonic warped into the "Modern Dimension" via the portal the Phantom Ruby opened at the end of Mania, he was in Titanic Monarch, or rather the final boss area but in that vicinity, on Little Planet. Why when the Phantom Ruby is destroyed does he end up back where it all started on Angel Island in Mania Adventures, where it was dug up no less if those holes are anything to go by. Shouldn't be have been spat out where he left, rather than Angel Island?
  10. Soo..if people think the HBH's won't return for the eventual sequel, even tho none of them seemed to be destroyed. What about instead of bringing back old levels, how about an old set of enemies? The return of the Battle Bird Armada perhaps? Edit : Sonic Mania just showed up on EB Games Australia page. Might show up on the NZ one later, or never if it's anything like Wonderboy in Monsterland. Sorry for the terrible quality but the Australian cover seems to have a sticker..or ugly ass advertising thing on the game cover, advertising the art book and reversible cover..at least I hope it's a sticker. Hate unneeded stuff cluttering the artwork on covers. I still remember DBZ Boudokai on Gamecube *shudders*, it had what looked like an ad sticker...but it was printed on the cover itself.

    Weren't Mighty, Ray and a couple others mentioned in a question to Ian and he said that a fair few on the list were showing up in the first two years or so? At work so can't go looking up the actual quotes sorry.
  12. Correct me if I'm wrong, but weren't Mighty & Ray both inhabitants of Angel Island? I'm also wondering how their adventure would start, I doubt they would just sub them in using Knuckles intro. It would be cool to see a new portion added to the animated intro, even if it just shows them briefly somewhere, at the end maybe along with the still action images of the original three? I doubt that's on the cards, even replacing the almost still shot ending with a proper fully animated scene doesnt seem likely for a reasonably cheap DLC, tho I guess we did get surprised before with the opening and all. Filling in the blank transition scenes would still be top priority in my books as far as extras go.
  13. So..if Encore Mode is a remix or continuation of sorts with Mighty & Ray, do you think it might be like Knuckles in Sonic 3K, their story is after the main Mania Mode? Could they potentially finish off the HBH's since they didn't seem to get destroyed over the course of the main game? Or do you think the HBH's will be saved for a potential sequel? Also as someone on Twitter mentioned earlier today...Is this now cannon?
  14. I do hope they fix the missing transitions and the much mentioned missing story elements to tie it all together. I mean you can kind of headcannon certain zone changes yourself, Flying Battery crashing near Press Garden. Returning to Angel Island (Stardust Speedway to Hydrocity) to get the Tornado, how tho I don't know, is it chained to Lava Reef at this point, could you jump down? Collecting the Tornado at the end of Hydrocity to chase Eggman and ending up in Mirage Saloon. Following the pipes from Oil Ocean to Lava Reef. Climbing the (for some reason the removed from the Heavy Rider boss battle) large chains tethering Little Planet to Lava Reef to get to Metallic Madness. And finally Titanic Monarch being built in or near Metallic Madness. It's even imagined the intro a little different, I mean it's assumed the Phantom Ruby was buried on the island, with the HBH's unearthing it as seen in the intro. I personally could see a short in game sprite animated intro scene prior to the normal opening with a portal opening above Angel Island and the Phantom Ruby shooting through it, like a meteor, and coming down crashing into the island, burying itself. Which then sets off Eggman's energy radar and Tails too. Would explain how it got there, rather than said powerful item having just been there all along. Not saying Plus needs that, it's kinda just how I imagined it opening myself.

    Well Fang/Nack and crew showed up as the Hooligans in Mania. They didn't have any connection before besides all being in the same fighting game. Bean and Bark weren't even implied to be "bad" in the game either. Now we have Mighty & Ray making a come back, and Ray even has his shoe design from the comics..personally I'm assuming they will work with the comic personalities, especially since they seemed to do so with the Hooligans.
