|Sonic the Hedgehog Accessories of Japan Page 2|
|If it's from Japan, and you can wear it, but it isn't clothing, chances are, it's right here. Japan had plenty of accessories with which to decorate yourself. However, many of these items had co-releases in other countries, they just changed the packageing. Don't be surprised if you see some of these things else where, or even own some yourself! Thanks to wider releases for some of these items, they are fortunatly not all that rare.|

|Here's a cool wallet from either a Segaworld, or something like it. It seems to be made of either canvas or tough nylon type fabric, with leather or faux-leather border and embossed emblem. The disk says "Sega Amusement Theme Park Segasonic the Hedgehog" and also has the copyright. The indentation for the design has a darker brown stain to help it stand out. This is likely a zip-edge wallet. Where could this be found? Was it win-only, or could you buy it? Write in if you know. Photo discovered by Piplupfan77|
|This classic costume is supposedly from Japan. But the writing is so small you can't tell. It is a full body suit, with floppy 1 dimensional spikes, plastic thin mask & gloves. The shoes have a strap in the bottom to hold them down over your own shoes. While it's not super quality, it's still much better than the USA version that likely appeared at the same time. (it was a plastic vest & mask) It is a good effort from the classic era. This costume is likely rare. Photos by SonicTeam.|
|Here's an early and simplistic cap. The art is embroidered on, and is clearly in the early style (very vertical pupil, round hand and wide spikes). It also uses the Segasonic label, from before they un-fused his name. The small writing to the side is the Sega copyright. It's a nice real classic design, though why the hat is this extra-bright orange color...there's no telling. It's still a bright and interesting collectible. Photo discovered by Berzerker.|
|These are early win-able watches. You could likely win them out of some kind of arcade related prize game like a UFO catcher, or something similar. There are 4 different styles, as you can see here with their original package & close ups of the watch faces. The first is black & white with checkered half, and red hands, the second has Sonic with scattered geometric designs, the 3rd has 3 different classic poses for Sonic with dots for the numbers, while the last has Sonic at the bottom and green lines / shapes around the rest, with black hands. Since they were win-only, none of these are common. Photo by SonicTeam|
|Here are better photos of these prize watches. You can see the bands and their unusual packagin in the shot to the left. The one with 3 Sonic poses on the face has Tails on a white band, the Sonic & Tails face has a blue & yellow squares band with just Sonic, the "maze like" face has muddy green with black line art for Sonic while the last checkered one has black & white art, with the logo printed sideways.
The second photo there gives a better look at the faces...look at the 3rd one! It's Sonic wearing a cape and holding a sword....so many years before Sonic & Black Knight came out...how interesting that they thought of the idea so long ago, then put it on a watch.
These win-able crane-machine watches are nice, colorful & collectible...but they're not common. All photos by SonicTeam.
|Here's a cap with a cute design. It's all embroidered too, so that means good quality, especially for a design of this size that takes up most of the front of the cap. The art for Tails is a seldom-used one, where he's just sitting on the ground. The "SegaSonic the Hedgehog" branding lets you know that this was quite an early item. Since the design is big, the detail is good & Tails looks very cute here. The rest of the cap seems an ordinary burgundy/reddish-brown with gray bill. Photo discovered by ShadowFoxx757|
