|Presenting- a crystal wine goblet!
It's Sonic Stemware! This crystal goblet was released in limited amounts in Japan for Sonic's 10th Anniversary. As you can see, the crystal is etched with the 10th anniversary symbol. The glass is in a gold foil embellished white box, lined with blue satin! Perfect for display. It even has a certificate of authenticity. Adding to the value of this piece, are official Sonic Team signatures, including Yuji Naka, with dates.
Most fans have not even heard such an item exists (and there mustn't be very many) it's sure to be the jewel of any collection...if you can find it.

|This is an exclusive collectible lighter. The lighter is made of brushed-finish stainless steel, and etched with the 10th Anniversary symbol. As you can see here, it comes in a special metal tin, lined with black velvet cloth. It is a Zippo lighter. But why do you need a Sonic lighter?

|The Crystal Cube! This prize possession was created in Japan for the 10th Anniversary of Sonic. It is a hard plastic cube, with lines inside created by a laser. This wire-frame model is truly 3D and gives a fantastic look. There were only 500 of these ever made! This was the original photo-set from the site. It is actually rather difficult to photograph properly. This was from before the laser method was as popular as it is, making it more of an excluseive. As you can see, it displays best when in a cabinet, lit from the bottom. This is one of three items, the others were a ring, and a statue.|
|Behold...the first piece of Sonic the Hedgehog jewelry! This is a real silver ring. It was released for the 10th Anniversary. It WAS available in the USA, but only through website ordering. It was one of a trio of items for the 10th, all very expensive. (Crystal Cube and Marble Base Statue are the other 2) The adjustable ability of the ring cheapens the feel a bit, but it looks to be well constructed none-the-less. As you can see, it came with all kinds of fancy boxes and documentation. It is believed to have sold for around 50 bucks. Now, it is probably far higher. Not many were made or sold in the US due to the high cost. Truly a gem in any collection! Photos by Sega.|
|Who says quality can't be cute?
This wonderful pair of sporting statues appear to be resin, with metal poles and real laquered wood bases! Sonic is heading a soccer (football) and Tails is running along. Poor Tails is a bit cross-eyed, but his sculpted hair is blowing in the wind, and his details are (otherwise) right on. This is a rare, quality and whimsical Sonic statue pair. Of course, this is another Japan only item. Photo by Alessandro- firstname.lastname@example.org.
|What collection of riches would be complete without real marble?
This exclusive statue will fix that! It has a genuine carved white marble base! (so it's very heavy) which has even been etched with the 10th Anniversary logo. The Sonic statue on top is made of quality ceramic and has every detail! The sculpt is very good.
|This statue was one of several items released for the 10th Anniversary celebration. Along with it were the Crystal Cube and Sterling Ring. All 3 of these featured on the Sonic Team website at the time. The rare-er items (goblet, lighter) were not shown on the web. Photos by Sega.|
|You've likely seen this image a zillion times if you're a fan of Sonic.
So what's so unique about this piece? It's the actual original of this piece of art, signed by the airbrush artist who did it. You always see this art around, yet it's rare to think of the original piece that all others had to have been made from. Picture size - 16.5" x 23" - Frame size - 27.5" x 34.5"
The art itself was airbrushed by Adrian Chesterman who is in England. He's fairly famous with several other modern art subjects to his credit. The image was kept by the artist until 1997, where it was sold, and then sold again in 2009. It is signed and dated, and under glass.
Surely a Sonic fine art piece belongs in high-end, and having this original really would be a centerpoint of a Sonic collection as it is now regarded as classic. It's also really interesting to see the actual origin of art that everyone takes for granted as it's been seen so many times.
|Animation cels can be pricey, however this one appears here because it's very rare and unique. First, as you can see it's much larger than an ordinary cell, as it is a panoramic cell. It also has 2 layers, which is rather rare as well, along with containing most of the characters all at once. Certainly, a cell like this is extremely exclusive but...|
|to add even more, it's actually also a deleted scene! It is from the pilot episode of the SatAM series, with original matching background. You can see that it took place in the 'pre Robotnik' time period for the show--the white arcitecture, trees etc. You can also see the odder looking Boomer/Rotor walrus and the Sally here is pink with black hair. This also had 3 sketches and its certificate of authenticity. Certainly it is a jewel in any cell collection! Currently is in Leda's Cell Addiction collection.
|One might not think a mug would be a high-end item.
But this one is! This mug is extremely rare. It was only sold out of Segaworld Sydney in Australia, and it is unique among mugs because it's actually shaped like Sonic's head, rather than having pictures instead. Several factors supposedly contribute to it's rarity including- it can easily chip or break, it was expensive in the store discouraging buyers, only Australia had it, they didn't make too many of them, it looks like it could be difficult to clean.
The mug itself is a pretty good likeness, (especially for a hollow head) with shortened spikes, and an appropriatly placed handle.
|Would it be difficult to drink out of? Maybe, but it's so rare it's unlikely anyone knows. The mug could be a star in any collection...if you can find one. This mug is in the collection of Alessandro|
|This watch is a high end item, due to what it's made of. It is actually silver & gold (unlike regular watches which tend to be steel) and the whole thing is metal. As you can see here, it has a Sonic 2 theme (with the peeking Tails art, quite small on the number-less face) and SEGA '92 for the year it was produced/given out. It also has a simple date function.
This watch is rare, because it was only given to Sega employees and was not something that could simply be bought. It was actually donated by a Sega employee to the auction block to be sold off for charity vs the Japan earthquake of 2011. So it commanded a very high price, and the money went to help victims of the disaster, further propelling the watch into the records as something that's really great. Photo discovered by Taaron
|This statue of Eggman was made in the early 1990s. It is likely to be resin, and comes with a real wooden base. (he's detatchable) This was expensive when it was first made, and remains so now...only now it is more rare. (Villain solo statue! uncommon by nature!) The proportions are all excellent to the early games, and they included every detail, even sculpting all of his teeth. It was sold only in Japan. You can read more (and see more photos too) on Display Figures. You can also see a video of it with Hogfather Don, where you can get a sense of the size, and see all sides of this costly & interesting figure. Really, a star in the collection of any Eggman fan!

|Another Crystal Cube!
Another rarity to star in any collection. This one is based off of the 20th Anniversary art of modern Sonic with a TV that shows classic Sonic's face/portrait. But look! You can even see the picture on the TV screen within the cube! Certainly, it is an amazing work of art. The logo & inscription help give it a sense of depth. The inscription reads "Still Unstoppable After 20 Years"
It could be gotten from: http://ebten.jp/
PS3 or 360 Pack: $125 (Including game, crystal cube, Sonic washcloth, and History of The 1st Stage CD White Edition) 3DS Pack: $108 (Same as above, but with History of The 1st Stage CD Blue Edition)
Of course, by the time anyone found out about it (it released Dec.1 2011) they were all sold out. This was likely because it was limited edition to only 500 ever made. What did the wash cloth look like? (what an odd pairing, a crystal cube and a random washcloth) Certainly, it's worth much more now than the initial price.

|Snowboards are generally expensive, even if they don't have special graphics. You can't get a good one for under 100 dollars. These boards however, are special and exclusive. They're both Sonic Riders themed, and show him (and Jet too, if you look carefully) on his board, along with the logo. These were done in some sort of very limited quantity, for reasons unknown. (The amount made was either 5 or 10 only, of each) Due to having such a small run, all-over special Sonic graphics, and being actual use-able snow boards, these are sure to be very costly as well as very uncommon.

|This item may be the only one of its kind, so certainly it's exclusive. It is a Sonic figural trophy for what's likely a Sega sponsored car race somewhere. The winning driver got the trophy which looks like it might be some type of metal? Whatever it is, it's big, and likely heavy as it has fuzzy felt feet on the bottom. The front has the Sega logo in blue, and a uniquely posed all 3D Sonic standing next to a trophy-cup with shiny rim. It looks like he's holding one of the handles, and has a foot up on its base.
The race was in 1993, it was the "F1 European Grand Prix", in Donington Park
Were there other Sonic themed trophies for 2nd, or 3rd? No. But Sega sponsored the race, and that year the race was known as SEGA European GP. No other year had a Sonic trophy because 1993 was the year SEGA invested the most in marketing, and the only year that they sponsored a race in.
Who won it? Ayrton Senna, the Brazilian racer from the Mclaren-Ford constructor.
The material the trophy is made of, as well as its location today are still a mystery.
What an interesting item.
