Pre-orders have started to go live for a new 6″ tall Sonic figure from JAKKS Pacific. The upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog Collector Edition 6″ Action Figure is being released to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of SEGA’s iconic mascot. Released in 1991, Sonic The Hedgehog was the shot in the arm that the SEGA Genesis/Mega Drive needed. It brought intense speed, great platforming, and a wonderful slate of characters to the system. On top of that Sonic became SEGA’s much needed mascot to compete against Nintendo in the 1990’s.
The new Sonic 6″ Figure is fully articulated. It includes three sets of swap out eyes, three swap out mouth parts, and three sets of interchangeable hands, including one holding a gold ring. A diorama display stand is included as well. The figure has a suggested retail price if $49.99 (some stores have it marked lower). It’s due for release this month. See the new photos after the jump.
