  1. Does anybody know if any other UK cinema chains besides Cineworld are doing promotions for the movie?

    1. Stasis


      I asked Odeon before release but they had no information at the time. Went there today, just a kids cardboard snack holder/door hanger thing. I got one, it's nice but nothing like the Jumanji cards or Sonic poster at Cineworld.


    2. Joy


      Just back from Cineworld. What promotions are they doing?

  2. Sonic movie was fun! Would recommend.

  3. So first off, I liked the movie, it was fun. Second, here are all the references/easter eggs I noticed:
  4. It really felt like the writers were simply trying to interpret what was being shown in the games, without being briefed on the context. It’s the only viable reason I can think of for why oddities like there being infinite Chaos Emeralds, or the games zones being interpreted as literal pocket dimensions were a thing. I don’t know how they could’ve got so much wrong, or why Sega didn’t direct them. It’s especially weird considering Fleetway Sonic had no problem getting it right. Hell, maybe the Archie writers outright ignored Sega’s directions on the lore altogether.
  5. I’m just noticing that the render used on a bunch of the official merch still has Sonic wear his old pre-redesign shoes So, what, was there a period toward the end of the new design’s life where they were going to keep the shoes?
  6. So do all of the toys for the movie still use the old design? ‘cos it sure looks like it.

      I think I've only seen one (maybe two) pieces of merch so far that were changed.

  7. So we got Cristina Vee as Sally for a hypothetical SatAM reboot: who should play the other FF?

      This is actually pretty tough since I'm not super familiar with a lot of current anime/game voice actors. I think Ben Diskin might have the comedic chops for Antoine, though I don't know how well he can do the French accent.

      I used to imagine Laura Bailey's voice when reading Nicole in the comics, so probably someone in a similar range to her like Erika Harlacher?


    I seriously thought this was real at first.

  9. Idea for a Pokemon concept:

    One that has differing appearances and typings based on what other Pokemon species it’s bred with. There’s also a rare “pure breed” variant.

  10. Remember when 4kids and/or Miramax commissioned new scenes to be animated for the fourth Pokemon movie because they really, really, really wanted to drive home an insignificant story detail?

    1. Blue Blood

      No. Would you mind giving some specifics because not everyone here is a Pokémon anime expert?

      Sorry, I assumed it was common knowledge.

      The dub of the fourth movie went and got a bunch of new scenes animated for it because they desperately wanted the audience to know that Professor Oak and Sammy were the same person. Originally the only hint was in the credits when Tracey finds Sammy’s old sketchbook among Oak’s belongings.

      There was also an extra Team Rocket scene. For some reason.

    3. Blue Blood

      That's really daft. Didn't that sketchbook eventually show up in the Let's Go games as an Easter Egg?

      Oh? I don’t recall seeing that.

      At 3 minutes in:


  11. Think this is the first time I’ve ever heard Sarah talk about Veronica Taylor.

  12. Yeah...I was expecting a big influx of game locations being confirmed. Not two comic-original places with non-descript names.
  13. Ooh. ...care to spoil them for us?
  14. The UK Dragon Ball theme tune was my jam tbh

    1. FReaK


      nothing beats the german version


  15. Big the Cat, of course. I love fat characters, and I have a massive soft spot for the slow or “dimwitted” types. Big is just the sweetest gentle giant who only wants to live his simple life with his best buddy. I find his section of SA1 unironically kind of relaxing to play too, and he has some really nice bits of music associated with him; not just his theme song, but his theme in Emerald Coast. I also want to give a shoutout to his characterisation in the Archie Comics.
  16. There was a Sonic promo thing on ITV just now.

    1. Stasis


      Want to see a clean upload

    2. Stasis


      Nevermind, found one haha trying to avoid thumbnails

  17. Not sure what this has to do with Archie Sonic specifically, but RIP.
  18. Imagine being a Japanese DBZ viewer back in the day and having to wait literal weeks for a single battle to end.

    1. The Master

      The Master

      I remember watching the original run on Cartoon Network in the UK. Freeza took months, my Mum really lost patience saying "Is he not dead yet?" after every episode 😛

  19. I wouldn’t be surprised if the annual got delayed anyway.
  20. *literal crying*

  21. Pikachu, our lucky star is shining today!

    1. Soniman


      I don't see any stars.. 

    2. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      Is it just me, or is it shining alot brighter than normal?






  22. Julie-Su, in these early stories, embodies the absolute worst kind of “girl power” character: the type where the aformentioned “girl power” is her only trait. The kind who just harps on and on about how she “don’t need no man” while not actually contributing anything of value to the stories she’s in. She doesn’t get much better later on either in my honest opinion. In later issues she mostly just settles into just being “Knuckles love interest”. She’s one of the few characters who not even Ian was able to make me care about. The only real positive thing I have to say about her is that I like her design.
