The Elusive McDonalds Eggman Toy Appears Once Again!

Regulars to SEGA Memories should know about the Sonic the Hedgehog 3 McDonalds toys and how Japanese fans were treated to a very different looking Eggman toy. Gagaman covered it not too long ago. While Westerners received an Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog design of Robotnik, the Japanese received the original in-game Eggman design. Since 1993, the alternate Eggman toy occasionally appeared in books (as Gagaman mentions in the above link), the Sonic 10th Birthday Pack and online. Most recently, the McDonalds Eggman appeared in an online auction at The auction also includes Sonic, and both toys are unopened. The only downside, the price is set at over $50 and that doesn't even include whatever shipping is. Still, it's great to see more images of this elusive toy! After the break, check out two more images of Eggman and Sonic.

Classic Tails Can Party Like It's 1992

I'm back with another of the Jazwares Sonic 20th Anniversary figures! This time we're looking at an old favorite: Classic Tails and Grabber from 1992. This has got to be one of my favorite figures yet, as it represents my favorite Sonic game and includes a badnik from my favorite zone, Chemical Plant. Tails looks great. He has that wide-eyed happy Japanese design and looks great next to the classic Sonic figure.
