Sonic Classic Collection SE Aussie/Spain Unboxing

The emulation may not be up to par for the recent re-re-re-release of Sonic's classic Mega Drive games, but the special edition treatment is impressive! A photo gallery, courtesy of Sega Europe, shows off the collectors box exclusive to Australia and Spain.

The set features the game, a collection of art cards and a mini Sonic figurine all housed in a tin box.



The cards, while not all representing the games included, are pretty awesome. Both American and Japanese art feature from games such as Sonic 3, Sonic the Screensaver and the Game Gear's Sonic & Tails aka Sonic Chaos.

The mini figure is a near match with the recently released Sonic vinyl figure, looking to be roughly half the size. While not as cool as the vinyl version, the Sonic-ness is well done and it would make for the perfect mini-me to the vinyl Sonic.

Why this is only being released in Spain and Australia is beyond me. I'd most likely only buy this collection for this special edition me thinks, as I have a GP2X that emulates the Sonic games (including Sonic CD and any Sonic hacks) perfectly. :)

I'd happily pick this up, despite not owning a DS, were it to come stateside. Shame Sega has given the US the shaft in bonus items. Thankfully the PS2 Sakura Taisen 5 will be given the snazzy box treatment.

Why is it Spain and Oz only? I'd quite like that. Pfft.

Question to the author, was the Sonic figure you received in this package barely attached to the platform/stand he came on? My figure was wiggling on the stand and I had to use super glue to keep him from breaking off at the feet.

Remember the bonus Sonic figure you received when you pre-ordered Sonic 06 for the Xbox 360 from GameStop? Similar issue, his head would fall off if you even looked at him funny.

You could say the Sonic 06 figure is just as glitchy as the game then?
