  1. “What we’re trying to do with Sonic is make a movie about a small-town police officer..." This, this right here is where you went wrong. Little hint for all the Hollywood exec's out there. When you use an established franchise as a base for your movie, your FIRST and ONLY thought should be how to bring the franchise's characters, locations and the things people love about said franchise to the big screen in a way that respects that franchise and it's fans. Yes, you need to make as much money as you possibly can, usually by bringing in as many people as you can, and usually to a projects detriment trying to cater to them all. Its an unfortunate byproduct of dealing with investors, studio bigwigs and large sums of money. But when you feel you have to change and disect almost the entire franchise to a point where it barely resembles that franchise anymore beyond a character and a name, then you have to ask yourself why are you bothering? People will notice....

    Sonic Mania Adventures (Part 3 Available Now)

    Maybe it's not so much Knux didn't know Mighty, just he shrugged as he doesn't know where he is. He hasn't showed back up yet, this is before Mania Plus it seems.

    I believe superman43 owes me a Cherry Coke haha. My prediction was accurate Also Knuckles isn't chuckling, I wonder what the next episode will be. Mighty & Ray perhaps? With Metal Sonic in the last one.

    Sonic Mania Adventures (Part 3 Available Now)

    My bet is on it arriving on the last day of the month again. Pretty sure the last two were also on the last days of their respective months. So I'm going with Friday NZ time (our 1st June), Thursday US time (their May 31st). It does have me wondering what is so special about the last episode that it likely won't release until two weeks after Mania Plus has launched.
  5. I would think they would use palette's from Good/Bad Future from CD before they did an Adventure reference.
  6. I'm totally with you on this one!! When that train showed up it was a pleasant surprise, loved Eggman on the whistle too. The section seemed so short. It has to return in the zone somewhere I thought...but nope. Would be great if they utilized Team Hooligan again as a boss fight on said train too. Maybe on per section of the train, fight your way to the front?
  7. This tweet has me wondering.. What does he mean by "I don't see myself doing anything beyond the writing at a certain point. Does he think this will take off so amazingly well that he will be able to pay other artists to imitate his "style" and illustrate future issues for him? Or that he's just going to re-use panels or art in a way that he doesn't have to draw anything again? I don't understand how he can continue this vision of his, complete all these books he has planned, without illustrating them.
  8. It's interesting how people think pre-hammer when she did have her Piko-Piko Hammer in the classic continuity too. I suppose if you go off the Sonic CD character descriptor then you could design something around the tarot cards? What if like Cream with her projectile Cheese she could throw her tarot cards? Like a speedy Gambit haha. It would still play into the speed and reaction time based gameplay of the classic platforming formula. You could make it so she still curled so people could use it optionally to the original play style, but those that mastered it could take out enemies from a distance to clear the path for quicker speed runs.
  9. Isn't it odd, he mentioned only 2 days ago that he was considering giving Lara-Su a tattoo while working on his latest page... I'm sure he's not, as creators generally work on multiple parts of their project at once, and it's very rarely in beginning to end order, but the way he broadcasts his intentions, and then releases the content he's contemplating on a couple days later really makes it seem like he's just doing things on the seat of his pants sometimes. Yes creators change things on personal whim and sometimes last minute, but it's just the way he broadcasts it...I dunno it's hard to explain.
  10. I'm sure some of you have seen this, and I do hope Amy gets at least a cameo.. But this made me laugh, so sorry not sorry. Edit : If Amy was to make it into Mania or a hypothetical Mania 2, would you rather they just use Amy as her name or use the old callback Rosy moniker instead?
  11. Yeah he doesn't really care about that either. I recall people using Mega Drive selling out and needing second print to fill demand against his arguments but he just retorted with something about people not knowing the initial print run quantity and that anything can sell out if the run is small enough. Again using his "inside" previous knowledge from working there to say Archie print runs were a lot bigger back in the day and that Mega Drive selling out now wouldn't even equal a standard one of his issues sales or some such. Hence my interest in the figures, tho the old Archie figures are hard to come by and he would likely bring up his age old excuse that they could have sold better if they hadn't lost shelf space to other titles at the time as he does with Knuckles. From what VEDJ-F said in the IDW topic it seems that they are selling about the same as Archie, better than Universe and Boom, but stabilizing at a higher point of sales overall so it's sounding good for IDW regardless.

    IDW's Sonic the Hedgehog

    So should we assume by that then that IDW has smaller print runs than Archie if they are selling out and going into 2nd runs if the numbers are roughly the same but IDW is doing 2nd and 3rd runs?
  13. Posted in the IDW topic too to see if anyone had old figures, but I saw a post that mentioned that IDW Sonic #1-4 The first print run of the first arc had colectivly sold over 60,000 copies. Not sure if that's better or worse than Archie's figures on any given arc or compared to the old days that Penders seems to always bring up as being the most successful time, cause he was involved of course. It will be interesting to see if he says anything or considering his bashing of the concept of just using game material and Sega's closure on his material. I sincerely doubt Lara-Su will sell anywhere near that ball park tho.

    So I saw a post on Twitter that exclaimed that IDW Sonic #1-4 first print runs had collectively sold over 60,000 copies. It sounds a lot, but is that good compared to Archie and some of its 4 issue arcs? Or the early more popular years of Archie according to old Penders who is always touting that his early runs sold the most of any issues. Blegh.
  15. For those that may have doubted, or perhaps thought it wasn't meant as it was seen, perhaps it was underwear but looked like a butt cheek...it wasn't. "Mobian culture" doesn't abide undergarments. While that's all well and good when dealing with characters like Sonic and company who have no dicernable "rude" parts. When you take the time to draw butt cheeks etc..it just becomes creepy. Personal opinion.
