New Classic Sonic the Hedgehog Figure Announced

This is Niche Culture. In this column, we regularly cover anime, geek culture, and things related to video games. Please leave feedback and let us know if there’s something you want us to cover!

Takara Tomy are offering a classic-styled figurine of Sonic the Hedgehog that is sure to make older fans of the blue-blur squeal with glee.

Titled simply the “Classic 1991 Ultimate” Sonic Figure or the “Classic” Sonic figure and standing at 5.5 inches tall, the figure is fully articulated and enables fans to pose him in multiple ways, as well as switch out his facial expression, hands, and hand accessories.

You can make Sonic hold a ring, or his favorite snack – a chili dog. There’s also a display base that can be used to store unused accessories.

Here’s some more shots of the figure:

Pre-orders are up now via retailers like GameStop, however shipping isn’t expected until March of this year.

    So how long do you think it will take before we get video from Jim Stirling molesting this toy in one of his intra-videos?

    Not bad probably the best he’s had but I don’t like how figures keep giving him tiny stump legs.
    Length wise the limbs look right but making them so thicc makes them look dwarfish, I guess it’s just something they have to do for the sake of a articulated mass produced toy.

    Doesn’t look as good as the nendo but I think it’d be a pretty solid alternative to it at least.

    Nothing spells Classic Sonic as much as a hotdog.

    Mania team should just replace Sonic Team at this point.

    I would have them along with the Sonic Utopia team take over the franchise.
