There is a giant Sonic statue lurking in the woods in Japan. "Location published on Page 4"

Hmm, I hate HATE to say this, but.....why not ask Iizuka?

I mean I don't want to really bother him, but seeing as hes been with Sonic Team and SEGA of Japan since Sonic 3, and this may connect with that he may have some sort of idea. This wouldn't be the usual "DURR WEHNS THE NEXT SANIC GAMEZ?!?!" this would be something to really get to the bottom of and he may have the answer if not a lead.

If not him maybe Yuji Naka would have an answer to this too. Just please don't be dumb if were gonna go down this route.

I'm not sure how that statue got here but I asumme it was just left there. Just ask Sega why is there a Sonic statue in the middle of a japanese forest.

SEGA of America wouldn't know and SEGA of Japan would have a language barrier. thats why I made the suggestion above.

It looks like a promo statue for "Sonic Generations". Notice how Classic Sonic's artwork looks like from "Sonic Generations here:

In my opinion, it kind of looks too...authentically Classic Sonic to be for Generations, if that makes sense.

Wherever it comes from, it's a rather nice-looking statue, ain't it? Perfect likeness of classic Sonic. <3

I got the feeling that statue was used for promoting Generations in Japan...

Or maybe they recently putted it there for the 25th anniversary?


No, No, and no. the statue clearly dates back to the 90s. so you guys are all off.

Nobody ask any companies... They might notice and take it down

And you're just paranoid. we want SEGA of Japan to notice it so maybe they can clean it up and put it in someplace decent for Sonic's 25th instead of leaving it to rot in the woods and have vandals get access to it

Did some digging. I believe the statue is in Nabari, Mie Prefecture, possibly to the North. 

No idea why it's there, though. Decent guess is there's a Club SEGA in the area and it could have been used to promote that.

yeah we figured it was in Mie Prefecture in the statuses, but Nabari is new. Come to Retro Tracker and help us brainstorm on this.

Nows the perfect time to save it too, Sonic's 25th is coming up classic sonic looks like its gonna be the on-going fad for 2016 and this would be great PR for SOJ.

Maybe if I happen to be right by the area I will take a look at it. 

Would you? I mean that would be a great help to this fanbase right now. we could use some HQ 360 degree photos of this guy. maybe theirs a emblem, mark, or plaque that can give us a clue as to why Sonic is there.

You would have to direct message MoriYuki on Twitter to ask where exactly he saw Sonic.

No. Don't go bugging the dude. That's the last thing I want folks nagging him about.

Dude's a regular biker who saw something cool and he's already replied to one chap saying he can't remember exactly where he saw it.
