Hey Smindas! I've found your Knuckles clock!

Well lookie what I found by pure accident why browsing the net, it's none other than a blog post about a set of Japanese 'SegaSonic' clocks which include the Knuckles one that Smindas has as part of his collection. There is also clocks of Sonic, Tails, Amy Rose and Robotnik and they're all rather snazzy. Even the packaging has a hand drawn quality to it. They were apparently found on the Yahoo Japan auction site back in August. Maybe I should have a browse there sometime. I think iI would actually be willing to trade a bunch of my old British Sonic merchindise for some of the wonderful early 90's Japanese stuff.

The art on the box looks like it came directly from some of the early concept art. Wow.

The mystery is finally solved! I may be a tad bias, but I actually think the Knuckles one is the best of the set. However, that Eggman one is rather awesome.

I am speculating here, but I think this clock style was applied to more than Sonic merch as my brother was also given a clock, but with some Japanese sports team mascot on it instead. It was done in the exact same way as these were, though. Uninteresting tidbit for you there.

Oh also, 'AMMY'? That's gold.

I can't believe I didn't even notice that. XD

I'd kill (okay, at least pay $75) for this set! The Dr. Eggman clock is total win.
