You know your girlfriend is awesome..

...when she buys you these for valentines day!

It's those smaller figures by First4Figures! They are rather awesome (though the Tails one has a hard time standing up). They are also taller than most of the other miniature Sonic figures and don't suffer from any dodgy paint work or wonky eyes like the old Sonic & Knuckles set. maybe I'll post some more photos another time.

The Sonic Chess set and other bits and bobs

So we finally have some photos of the Gaya Entertainment range of classic Sonic stuff as seen over at the German website Spin Dash (thank Barry for finding these). Nice to finally see a classic Amy and Robotnik show up somewhere in all this stuff!

Squeeze toys for crushing in your hand over the many disappointments and frustrations that come in hand with being a Sonic fan!

Sonic the Hedgehog 4

Alright, alright. I know that the first post made here at Sega Memories clearly stated "Sega Memories is all about anything Sega outside of the games", but how could I not make an excited post about Sonic the Hedgehog 4?? Rather than mention the gameplay or systems it's on, I'll post the bit that is of pertinence to Sega Memories readers. From the official Sonic 4 (god, I love typing that) website:

Our Legendary hero returns! With the Death Egg finally destroyed, and Angel Island back in the sky, Sonic decides it's time to take a break and heads off to explore a new territory on his own. However unbeknownst to Sonic, Eggman has also survived their last encounter, and has begun taking measures to rid himself of our hero. Armed with his signature Speed, super Spin Dash - and powerful Homing Attack, Sonic is ready for an all-new adventure!

Now to speculate on what kick-ass merchandise this game will bring... :)

^ No, not this. ^
