Nendoroid Sonic the Hedgehog!

The Sonic series has just reached it’s 20th anniversary, and from that series comes a Nendoroid of the super fast hedgehog himself – Sonic!

That’s right! Sega’s famous Sonic the Hedgehog has been around for 20 years! ヾ(*゚ω゚)ノ゜

It’s the second Nendoroid of a popular worldwide known character, following on from Disney’s Mickey Mouse! Isn’t it great to see the characters of our childhood still getting the chance to become Nendoroids! Let’s take a closer look!

003

This is how he looks from the back!

As you’d expect from a hedgehog, Sonic has a lovely spiky back! His stylish red shoes are painted with a glossy cover for a nice shiny effect!

004

Running at the speed of sound!

Sonic is of course well known for his incredible running speed… I remember it always felt to great to run along at super speed in the games…

He comes with an optional bent right leg!
The picture here kind of hides it behind him a bit, sorry! But it still gives a good feeling for the running pose!!

005

He also comes with a more serious expression!

It is a Nendoroid after all! Of course he comes with an extra expression to play with!  This expression is for the more pressing times, and gives him a slightly worried and more serious look.

He also has open hands and an item box!
There are in fact a load of extra hand parts to help you recreate all sorts of scenes from the game!

There is also an item box, which has a lovely extra life inside it… but…

006

You can also change the items inside!

You can take apart the item box and put whatever item you’d like to see inside! I think the 20 rings looks best!

007

He also comes with a ring to collect!

It would be fun to line lots in front of him to collect, or even have them scattered around as if an enemy had just hit him. Unfortunately he only comes with one ring. ^^;

008

A chaos emerald!

The chaos emeralds are the powerful gems that Sonic runs around collecting! As you can see it is made from beatiful clear plastic and even comes with its very own little stand! (The photos here show it held by a brass wire, but the final version will have a proper stand.)

012

A grinning smile and a thumbs up hand!

That smile suits Sonic so well – always running around doing whatever he likes! The thumbs up hand can be used with the bent left arm to create this confident looking pose!

009

He also comes with a half-way marker!

    /  (○)  (○) \   “Oooh! Even this is included! 
  /   ///(__人__)// \   I can just imagine the sound it makes!!”
  |      `Y⌒y’´     |  
   \      ゛ー ′  ,/   
    /      ー‐    ィ

The half-way markers that saved you having to redo the whole level after dying! Those who play Sonic should feel quite relieved to see this along with the Nendoroid. ^^

010

The blue barrier section can be removed!

The blue balls on the top can also be rotated around, allowing you to pose them upward as if Sonic has run through the point!

011

You can pose him dashing through it!

It’s definitely a Nendoroid that comes with a load of fun ways to play around! So many optional parts to have fun with and strike your favorite poses.

013

The magazine features not only techniques that can easily be used by both beginners and professionals alike, but also a look at the culture and life style around wind-instruments! It’s all wrapped up in a lovely magazine aimed at teens! A fresh, modern wind-instrument magazine!

The front cover is AKB48’s Mayuyu! As cute as ever!  There were all sorts of articles that I took a look at like “Learn from the Pros”, “The Secrets of the Cords”,  “CECIL McBEE Presents” and “How to Create a Thrilling Stage”.
