So with them being Nikes and all, the implication there is that when the movie starts he doesn't even have shoes and he gets them in the human world.

You're right, I'm not happy, I'm overjoyed. This is hilarious!

Yup. I noticed that too. Nike has payed product placement in the the movie. I predicted months ago that Sonic's shoes may be an altered version of an existing brand.

 

Kinda like how Batman wore modified Nikes in the 1989 movie

It's the neck that makes it look horrible.

I think my original assessmentof "Not that bad" is lowering. Because the more I see the more I hate how he looks.

If you think that whatever the hell is sitting above us is going to be more marketable to a mass audience than this guy:

latest?cb=20170727110332

Then I don't know what to tell you. I see no possible reality where someone can look at these designs side by side and say "yeah, that movie design is miles better!" 

Successfully translate that design to live action, use collected marketing data and then you'll have a legitimate case to sell your shareholders on the movie.

I can't really sooth anybody's feelings right now because I can completely understand why fans would hate what they're seeing right now. But I can understand why the Studio went this route myself.

Yea, that's definitely the route they should have gone with the shoes. But he can always change midway to something more recognizable

On another note. Not only on this movie design.... but I've seen the same mistake done on some fan art over the years... Did they not realize the skin color muzzle and chest on Sonic are not suppose to be fur? Those areas on Sonic is made to emulate how on certain animals they have far less fur on their underside and muzzle. AKA it is meant to be SKIN.

Sonic 06 concept art shows that at least the belly is fur:

And, honestly, if his body is furry like it is in the movie, it'd look really bad if the belly was suddenly skin.

Spoiler

Yes, I know it already looks bad, but it'd look worse!

What collected data is there that a design that everyone is universally mocking and expressing displeasure for is somehow a better alternative?

Except it isn't successfully translated. It looks creepy. The proportions are all out of wack, the colouring is completely off, there's stupid product placement in the redesign of an iconic gaming character. Instead of looking like a charming, simple, unique character, it looks like a complete busy mess. If your first reaction to this design is "eggggh this is creepy" and then needing to justify a reason to call it appealing, it shows it is a failure on every single front.

And you know what? I don't think I would be very far off to call this as uncanny as the one major comparison constantly brought up in this topic:

250?cb=20140727195630

Right down to the fact that there's a common complaint about the nose with these designs. You don't hear many people saying "oh wow, those Michael Bay Turtle designs were so appealing, especially compared to the originals' simplicity!".

A concept they didn't use in the end doesn't prove anything. It's not as if SEGA never gets anything wrong either... However that model is likely unfinished and they just didn't bother fixing the chest texture.

This is a condescending comment in the veins of "Why don't YOU do it, then?"

The answer is, we can't, we're not the ones making the movie. However, we'll be the ones paying to see it, and the crew need a return on their budget, so they have to literally sell us on the design. They haven't.

I'm talking about the design he posted. The Japanese art for Sonic 3.

 

And we don't know the GENERAL audience will react to this design. The people mocking and making fun of it are all still going to see this movie .

Do you really think this

...Yes? We haven't seen the movie. We don't know what Sonic does to get these shoes. But there's easily an opportunity for him to have something closer fo his traditional footwear by the end. It's the classic superhero origin story. The hero initially starts off with a proto-version of their iconic design. If not this movie, they can make some changes in the next

If I cross my fingers hard enough and shut my eyes tight enough everything I want will happen, surely.

Yeah no.  That design made me literally almost puke no lie when I first saw it.  At least this one is bearable to look at, and doesn't look like it belong is a B-Class horror movie put out in early January trying to get a few bucks so they didn't waste their budget

If they were going to have Sonic change his "costume", then why start him off with red shoes in the first place? Wouldn't it be more dramatic for him to, say, go from barefoot to his signature shoes, than from one pair of red shoes to a slightly more accurate pair?

I dunno what planet you're from where the internet gives a thing a fair shake instead of roasting wildly without abandon and leaving when it gets boring

especially a Sonic thing

Maybe it's the same planet movie sonic is from. Do you know his workout routine? His leg game is on point

I can't wait for this movie to come out, and get bad reviews from just about everyone.

 

And this guy will still be saying "just wait and see, once society has collapsed and everything but this movie is lost to time, it'll be regarded as a priceless relic of a bygone age which only the richest of the bombed-out hellhole that is America will be able to scrounge up the money to gain a ten-minute look at. Finally this franchise gets the treatment it deserves".
