With the movie being it's own pillar I guess it's safe to say that there will be a tie-in game for this Christmas season.

Sounds great. Sega are banking on this movie's success and branching the brand out. Much like Hasbro did post-Bayformers

I actually kinda predicted it?

That was the sequel. The first movie was a smash hit successs. Paramount was planning on doing 3. The actors signed for 3 movies.  

There isn't probably going to be a 3rd movie. They are going to do a reboot instead.

I think Lego Sonic is a really great example of making Sonic work in a style you wouldn't imagine would be possible:

Image result for lego sonic

I mean, it seems difficult making Lego Sonic feel both like Sonic and authentic as a lego figurine at the same time. He doesn't look like a human (the core lego design) and you might wonder how you could get his signature spikes to work on a lego figurine without veering into doll territory. Yet LEGO pulled it off because:

- LEGO has quality standards.

- They didn't completely veer away from what made Sonic a cultural icon. No needless making him look 'realistic' or changing his shoes into generic looking trainers. You look at him and you instantly think Sonic.

When I first saw this, my initial reaction was "...oh. ... ... ...he... looks just fine. He literally looks fine."

Which was followed by a sigh of relief, and going "Phew... he looks WAY better than I was worried he might look." 'Cuz I was definitely worried. I STILL wanna see how this translates into an actual live-action/CG trailer though.

I'm 100% totally fine with this. Also, the glove thing doesn't bother me in the slightest.

So once again TO ME, the internet ended up freaking out and going all doom-and-gloom... only for it to turn out just fine in the end.

Could it be better? Yeah, of course... but this? This isn't bad at all.

I don't know how I feel about Sonic's movie design. I'm not going to overreact and claim it's the worst thing I've ever seen, but...I can't say I like it either.

Can I second this? I’m not certain either. Also, very curious about the “Animation” branch (the comics aren’t considered a branch?) that is now in play.

You know... something about that design just isn't REALISTIC enough.... but I can't quite... OH I KNOW!

I fixed it! After all... A live action Sonic movie MUST be grounded in reality and realism or nobody can take it seriously right?~

That's not even the spot where real hedgehogs have their junk. : P

Anyway, I see Sonic is wearing Nike shoes. Gee, I wonder what character comes to my mind when I see a white Nike logo over red... One thing is for sure, those Nikes must be tougher than leather. XD

Either they're referring to the Mania cartoon, Boom coming back, or.. a new Sonic..?

Can't wait for @Dr. Detective Mike to make another harshly true yet beautifully described post about how awful SEGA's management of the Sonic franchise has been, especially in how they allowed this movie to be made.

I feel like I don't need to. This kind of speaks for itself, honestly.

I'm mostly very tickled about this. I can't stop laughing at it.

Years later, when it goes down in history as something everybody hates, I hope Ian Flynn gets permission to use it in the comics for a botched Sonic clone saga.

Well, that was something, but strangely I have to say

Mc1eUrLX.jpeg

much as I dislike it this I have to say it's not for the reasons I thought I would. Sure It left a pit in my stomach seeing and it still makes me uncomfortable to look at, but I find the realistic (lets be honest it's still not realistic) take is not what most eats me up about this. It's strangely what I had believed before would annoy me and that is that they stayed too cartoony in certain regards. Most notably it is his mouth, muzzle, and eyes that are all kinds of wrong here. Nothing about those three features feel like they fit on this design and his mouth looks like a Muppet's mouth to me. Other than that though, much as I dislike it I can actually see it working in a live action movie. Now of course I still don't like the plot but at least according to the branding leak Sonic's personality is actually on point on paper which surprises me for the most part considering how it's been described so far. In the end I still would have preferred this

Mr. Mime arms from the Detective Pikachu movie and more realistic textures on his skin in general but the creepy little abomination doesn't offend me as much as I feared it would. It's just creepy and unappealing with eyes, a muzzle, and a mouth that look too cartoony to properly blend with the rest of the model. Oh well, it is what it is I guess. I've seen it now and don't like even if not as much as I thought would be the case. Now I can wait for a trailer and see how things go from there.
