[ADVENT CALENDAR] Sonic Christmas Crackers!


Place
 Share

Recommended Posts

Hello once again, Stadium of Sonic! December's finally here, and that means the advent calendar can commence! For clarification on how this is going to work, refer to the OP.

DECEMBER 1ST (DAY 1)

SNAP:

Video: Sonic Christmas Greeting - 2008

An early Newgrounds flash animation, Sonic Christmas Greeting is a brief scenario in which Sonic and Tails spend their Christmas in the Lava Reef Zone. As expected, things don't go well for them.

HAT:

41FFHRp1UWL._SL500_SX190_CR0,0,190,246_.jpg

"With this cap, GE Entertainment takes the 'thumbs up Sonic' that they like to use on their tags, and turns it into the art for the cap. By making the design really large, it adds an element of interest & visibility. The brim and hole-rims are also blue as an accent color. Sonic is embroidered on, so the design will be good and sturdy. This cap should be found in 2010 at SpencersGifts stores, and it costs 19.99."

TOY: http://img844.images...onictoyday1.png

Sonic X Space Fighters Line: Mega Bot Tails

"Mega Bot Tails is actually kind of cool.

You can imagine Tails inventing something like this suit, if he had to. (but who knows why) The suit makes him look proportionate, and not suffer from 'big body' at all. This is one of the most poseable figures on the line, with his tails for support. You can see that they also bothered to color the insides of his ears this time, however they added a bit much 'white space' to his tail tips (they are actually about half+ white) which is inaccurate, but somewhat nit-picky."

Images and descriptions provided by Sonic Gear!"

JOKE:

"Knock knock!

Who's there?

Interrupting Sonic.

Interrupting Sonic W-

I'll make you eat those words!"

~Can of Nothing

CHARADE: Sonic eating a chili dog in an unconventional and elaborate manner.

TRIVIA:

When using the Hang-On or Super Hang-On vehicles in any of the three games in the Sonic Riders series, the game's original soundtrack is replaced by music from the respective Hang-On Master System games.

Another day, another cracker! Shout-out to T-Man/Chris-T-Man for help with the content here as I was feeling exceptionally lazy today.

DECEMBER 2ND (DAY 2)

SNAP:

How the Hedgehog Stole Christmas - 2007

Parody of How the Grinch Stole Christmas in which Shadow attempts to get rid of the holidays to make room for more angst. Being made in 2007, some of the humor may be a bit questionable, but for its time this was generally quite impressive.

HAT:

sonichatday2.jpg

"This rather ordinary looking watch-cap is actually rather valuble.

This item was a pre-release give-away when you pre-ordered Shadow The Hedgehog the game through the Sega newsletter or through an Electronics Botique. The hats had an ok supply, just the "pre-buzz" against the game itself resulted in not too many pre orders. Soon after the game was released, the once 'free' caps were going for over $60.00 USD on ebay. Hang on to your hat if you've got this one!"

TOY:

3inSBKSonicBox.jpg

"The boxes for this line are quite nice. As you can see the bubbles are textured and they do have an inner part to keep the figure safe. With bright colors and attractive stickering, the figures are appealing on the shelves, while being very hard to bootleg, with the fancy bubble (much like ReSaurus was)"

Images and descriptions provided by Sonic Gear!"

JOKE:

"What did Sonic ask the guy working at the jewelery store?"

"...Got any RINGS?!"

"HAHAHA LAUGH NOW"

~T-Man

CHARADE: Amy watching and optionally breathing on a sleeping Sonic.

TRIVIA: Sonic Pinball Party for the Gameboy Advance has two secret and very hard to access tables. Moon Zone for Sonic and Twin Seeds for NiGHTS. Only two (badly recorded) sources exist demonstrating the tables and showing their existance. From the source, the following criteria must be met:

NiGHTS

Enter Arcade Mode (NiGHTS Table)

Enter Blue Chip Mode & collect 500 Blue Chips

Before Stick Canyon (6th Table) boss, Reala.

Sonic

Enter Arcade Mode (Sonic Table)

Enter Ring Mode & collect 500 or more rings (Not sure?)

Before X Zone (7th Table) Eggman battle.

The triumphant return! As it happens, turns out I have a good bit of catch-up to play. So today I present you...

CRACKER TRIPLE TROUBLE: DECEMBER 3RD

SNAP:

Christmas_Unleashed_by_EvanStanley.png

EvanStanley's Christmas Unleashed

A neat little gag based on one of Eggman's more questionable lines from Unleashed. He just turned into a MONSTER EGGMAN WHAT ARE YOU TRYING TO SAY

HAT:

RaysSonicCap1.jpg

"This cool Sonic cap is available at Spencers Gifts in 2011. It has embroidered classic Sonic on the front, with some screen-tone dots 'rays' for the background. But look under the bill/brim of the cap...there's an extra classic Sonic the Hedgehog logo! This added detail makes this cap stand out from the crowd. Sure it's slightly hidden, (while being worn) but it's a great added touch. This should be about 19.99."

TOY:

McDSignSilverGame.jpgshadowshiny.jpg

SONIC HEROES MCDONALDS LCD LINE: SILVER GAME SHADOW HOCKEY

(This edition of the LCD Shadow Hockey game was part of a sweepstakes that offered a cash prize to anyone who was lucky enough to receive the toy.)

"This is sure to be EXTREMELY rare. There may have only been 1 or 2 ever made due to the prize. Here, you can gaze at it in all its fake chrome electoplate glory! The winning game turned out to be this interestingly textured version of Shadow Hockey. Here, its turned on, so you can even see the sprites."

JOKE:

"knock knock

who's there

amy rose

amy rose who?

amy rose her hammer to clobber sonic!"

~chaoscontrol14

CHARADE: Eggman finally defeats Sonic, but his victory was entirely unintentional.

TRIVIA: In Sky High Zone Act 1 of Sonic 2 for the Game Gear, a small easter egg can be found on the upper level. Follow the route in the video an isolated platform with a 1-Up. Almost immediately, you'll see a line of ducks hopping out of a tree and proceeding left off-screen. This is the only place in the game where the ducks can be found.

The other two days will be up in a moment!

Howdy ho-ho-ho, everybody! I'm gonna be helping out Deck the Place a little bit here and there, so here's...

DECEMBER 4TH (DAY 4)... yes, it is now in fact December 7th, but roll with it.

SNAP:

A Sonic Christmas Special (The Christmas That Almost Sucked) - sonictoast

"Mario has invited Sonic and his friends over to his cabin for christmas. Meanwhile the evil Doctor Robotnik has kidnapped Santa Clause and plots to make Christmas suck. Can Sonic and Mario save Christmas?"

I remember watching this stop-motion gem many Christmas seasons ago, and I still think it's pretty funny, in an odd sort of way.

HAT:

GE8766.jpg

Not necessarily a hat, but it is cute Sonic headgear, perfect for this time of year!

"These earmuffs may look classic, but they are only classically styled. GE Entertainment released these in 2009. The forward facing Sonic heads are 3D plush, full of wooly goodness to keep ears warm! May be available at http://www.animecorn...hebsoearmu.html."

TOY:

26-20120910-170738.jpg

26.jpg

26-20120910-170733.jpg

"Sonic circuit and vehicles to build! Speed and stunts guaranteed! Enter the world of the famous hedgehog's video games!"

There are actually quite a few of these Sonic Meccano sets, where you build the set and car, then you play! The Casino Night one caught my eye, but there are also Green Hill and Chemical Plant sets, too. In fact, you can connect all three of these sets together to make one big track! More info on the other tracks and where you can buy these toys at http://www.meccano.c..._hedgehog.html.

JOKE:

Sonic: Hey Tails, where can I get the world's best chili dog?

Tails: Sonic!

Sonic: What?

Tails: No, I mean Sonic.

Sonic: What, Tails?

Tails: *groan*

CHARADE:

Eggman sunbathing... in nothing but a Speedo... greased up in tanning oil...

TRIVIA:

There is a rather creepy easter egg in Sonic CD.

"Go into the sound test (down down down left right A) and set these settings to these values: FM: 46 PCM: 12 DA: 25

A screen with creepy Sonic faces in the background and a Japanese message will show up as well as playing creepy music. The message is translated into this: 'Fun is Infinite Sega Enterprises, Mazin'."

Here's a video:

Again, if anyone would like to help by suggesting any cracker material, please do! Send Deck or myself a DM to keep it a surprise from everyone else, though!

DECEMBER 8TH... shhhh...

SNAP:

I'm gonna do a little something different for a snap and post a Christmas Sonic iPhone wallpaper. I got this from the Sonic 20th Anniversary app last year, and I really can't find it anywhere else. So enjoy! (it's really big to support Retina display)

IMG_3202.jpg

HAT:

EarsBallCap.jpg

"This is a little bit of a strange Sonic cap. It's a variation of the other Sonic face caps, but this one has odd little plush ears on the top of it. Can be found at Walmart."

TOY:

amybox.jpgREamyclose.jpg

A Sonic Adventure-themed Amy figure! Released around 1999-2000, there were several figures in this line featuring all playable characters: Sonic, Sonic skiing (yes, skiing), Tails, Knuckles, Big, and E-102. They all came with a ring and a stand to make the figure stand up straight (the purple circle behind the ring and hammer) Amy naturally came with her Piko-Piko hammer!

I had one of these when I was 6. I left it at the Olive Garden and never saw poor Amy again. sad.png

JOKE:

Nack the Weasel: Knock knock!

Sonic: Who's there?

Nack: Nack.

Sonic: Who?

Nack: Nack. NACK!

Sonic: Stop knocking already!

(he had to be referred to as "Nack" for the joke, see?)

CHARADE:

Shadow at a hair salon getting his red highlights re-done. THEY AREN'T NATURAL!

TRIVIA:

If you play Sonic Shuffle on Christmas Eve (or switch the Dreamcast's time and date to Christmas Eve), Lumina the fairy is replaced with NiGHTS!

Alrighty, I'm gonna change this up a little bit since Deck the Place can't do it anymore and it'll be pretty difficult for me to as well until I'm on winter break (finals are EVIL). Instead of having a huge, whopping cracker filled each with a snap, hat, toy, joke, charade, and trivia, I will do ONE of the following each day:

Snap, hat, OR toy...

AND

Joke, charade, OR trivia.

So you'll be getting two goodies a day rather than six. It'll be a surprise as to what you get each day, too, so that's fun! Six is rather hard, yeah? tongue.png

Anyway, I've got some catching up to do. Onward to...

DECEMBER 9TH

HAT: SonicWinterHat.jpg

A lapland style Sonic Hat! It has rather short tassels, and has two on the top and two at the bottom which hang around the chin. It's light blue and dark blue striped, and has a rubber Sonic decal on the front. It could be found at several retailers, but I bought one of these at Spencer's Gifts around winter 2010. I must say, it's rather cozy. smile.png

JOKE:

Why did Sonic cross the road?

...to escape from the city, of course!

(Ok, I cheated, this one was on the Sonic Stadium Facebook page the other day...)

DECEMBER 10TH

TOY:

SnowRiderz24Sled.jpg

Sonic sled! It's a "saucer" sled, so it's round and concave, with a smooth bottom for speedy sledding! Obviously it features Sonic and Amy, and it's made by the brand Outer Edge. It hasn't been spotted anywhere yet, as it's supposed to be released this winter!

TRIVIA:

Doctor Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine is just a slight redesign of Japan's Puyo Puyo. It was redesigned to appeal to the American market. It was also redesigned in the same manner for the SNES as Kirby's Avalanche.

DECEMBER 11TH

SNAP:

How Both Robotnikclauses Stole Christmas by YouTuber MugiMikey.

"Dr. Robotnik has willingly returned... as a mall Santa. He brought Classic Robotnik with him too. Well, nobody calls him that anymore."

It's pretty funny. May or may not be SFW.

CHARADE:

Amy desperately trying to seduce Sonic by singing "Blue Christmas" to him.

Yo, if anyone wants to do a day and be a STAR, I'd be eternally grateful. Just let me know first, alright? Cool beans. See ya for your next cracker, SSMB! smile.png

DECEMBER 12TH!!!

TOY:

Bendy Sonic Adventure figures!!!

Bendy4PakBack.jpg BendyBigSfan01.jpg

Tibendye102.jpgEggmanBendy.jpg

These generally came in packs of 4, but there were 6 (or 7?) figures you could get: Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Amy, Big, Dr. Eggman, and apparently E-102. They're pretty small (I think 3 inches), and come with several rings and 2 Chaos Emeralds. They re-released these under Sonic X packaging, but took out E-102 and added Shadow and Super Sonic. Super Sonic, however, was nothing more than a gold-painted Sonic, as seen below.

GoldenBendy.jpg

And here's Shadow too, cause why not?

BendyShadowMIB1.jpg

CHARADE:

Keeping the theme of the bendy figures, I present, the horrible creation of my pesky little brother, Knuckles Shrimp.

IMG_1181-1.jpg

Yes, it is Bendy Knuckles's head on Bendy Big's tail. Yes, it is horrible.

As you can see, due to difficulties, just a tiny few days have had to have been skipped over. But, Snowphire has enlisted my aid now, so I shall be posting a few crackers, I suppose.

 

AAAAARRREE YOU READY FOR...

 

DECEMBER 13TH!!okay technically it's the 18th but just roll with it

 

SNAP:

 

Video: Sonic's Friends Christmas Special

Funny little animation about how Amy, Tails and Knuckles deal with the situation when an extremely annoying snowman springs to life

DECEMBER 14th...uhh...ssshhhhh...

 

 

HAT:

 

AltonHat1.jpg

 

 

 

This hat is available at the Alton Towers Resort gift shop in the UK. It's somewhat "trucker style", with mesh back and white panel front. The design has classic forward-facing winking Sonic with the classic logo, but it also has a "faux wear" to it, making it seem old and worn (much like the ever-popular pre-torn up jeans!).

 
JOKE: 
 
Shadow: Doctor, I chased Sonic for hundreds of miles trying to catch him.
Eggman: Wait, but that fox boy only has two tails...

SNAP:

 

 

A Christmas of Sonic Games by sonictoast

 

An entry to TSS's Christmas Contest 2010, this video stars Big and Eggman singing through many past Sonic games to the tune of Carol of the Bells. Simple and festive!

 

CHARADE: 

 

Knuckles chasing a Chao around, trying to eat the floating ball above its head.

DECEMBER...whatever

 

 

HAT:

 

FadeSnapbackCap.jpg

 

The "Sonic 'Fade' Snapback Hat" which features Classic Sonic. 

 

It has Sonic running toward the front, with 'after images' behind him in orange & yellow. On the other side is Sonic's face. The bill is blue, with a black checker pattern underneath. On the back, it says "Don't Blink". You can get this fine hat for $19.99 at Spencer's Gifts, either in store or online!

 

 

TRIVIA:

 

In Sonic Adventure, there are several unused Tikal voice clips. One of them explains how to become Super Sonic (collect 50 rings and press the "action" button while jumping). This indicates that Super Sonic was originally meant to be usable in regular levels. It is also possible that the player was once required to manually collect the Chaos Emeralds before the Perfect Chaos boss. You can listen to the clip below.

Rudolph the Red Nosed... by Nemain

 

Another dug-up entry for the 2010 TSS Christmas Contest, this one by Nemain! Sonic and Tails attempt to sing Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, but is ninja’d by Robotnik’s PINGAS. There are no words. Only awesome. See it in the spoiler!

Hark! The Chaos Emerald King by Peda

 

A fresh new spin on a timeless Christmas Carol, excellent singing to convey the message, and some great artwork to carry the carol along as it tells a little story!
