|More Japanese Sonic the hedgehog themed electronics & electronic accessories. Old or new, big or small, all of the Japanese Sonic themed electronics will appear on these pages. This can include battery powered things, plug in items, vidogames & accessories (includes LCDs) and anything else that runs off of electricity that isn't a normal console or video game. This can include cases for your electronics too!|

|This is the "GBA Screen Protector Advance", mint in the package. It's basically a hinged blue plastic flap that you snap down over your GBA. Shutting it protects the screen & it flips up for play time. The image they chose is cool, as it has Sonic, Tails, Knuckles...but then Cream & Cheese too. You can't read the instructions, they're all in Japanese, but the illustrations show it's easy to use. Discovered by DustinLee Autry|
|This is a pair of earbuds being released as part of a Lost World promotion. They're pretty simple, in just blue & white. One has Sonic eyes, the other a star in a ring. The cord clip has just "Sonic" on it in the modern font. Can these be bought, or are they a pre order bonus? Discovered by ShadowFoxx757|
|Here are the Sonic Lost World promotional cases for the 3DS from the previous page of Electronics. However, this fan photo shows a detail the official doesn't...the interior of the soft-sides case is patterend with blue & white star circles, for an added matching touch. (See earbuds above) The case that's MIP here shows what the CG Rendering on the previous page actually looks like when you get the items. It's a flexible rubbery material. The softside case will fit a DS or a DSXL. Photos & owned by:|
|Is a screen saver an electronic item? Sort of? It's software at least, FOR your electronic item...that isn't a game & was likely sold on floppy disks.|
|You probably see the art from this around on the internet A LOT. It's even being style-knocked by Archie for some of their covers. The screen saver was sold / produced only for Japan around 1997 or so. All the art was done by the same person & features the same style of painting. It's a "powdery" sort of air-brush look with simple scenes, bright lighting, & colorful shapes. It featured Sonic, Tails, Knuckles & Eggman doing random, various things. Like, the scene above has Sonic explaining a rainbow to a snail.
Why would you need to explain a rainbow to a snail? Why would Sonic need to wait on a bus? These, and many other questions may arise when you view all of the art that was a part of the screen saver. Interestingly, the "Cover Image" (at left) was not done by the artist of the rest of the pictures, it's seemingly a large pixel-piece with a slightly different style linework. While the 'interior' images aren't rare to come by, the cover with title there is less-so. Do you know how many images were inside the screen saver?
|This is "Sonic X Desk Battle".
The items are miniature battery powered racers shaped like the characters' heads. (the 'body' is mini and folded beneath the head) The pen shaped object with round dial you see there is the controller. You spin the dial like a steering wheel for a car while you hold the pen. The box is entirely in Japanese so you can't read its little blurbs. Both the pen & the race car require batteries. Supposedly, upon release, these were rather expensive. Also, if you wanted to 'battle' (how?) you had to buy both. No other character was released. These appear to be Sonic X branded simply because that's what was popular at the time, there isn't anything particularly "X" about the Sonic or the Knuckles racer. Credit: Hikari Site
|Here's an old style flip-phone mobile phone by Pocket5.
Its a very early and simple sort of phone, with digital-watch type read out for the number (at the top) stubby little antenna, and flip down mic part. Its Sonic element is simple, with just running Sonic with the 'after images' in fades of blue behind him. The logo is the Segasonic the Hedgehog one, letting you know that it is quite an early 90s phone. Seen here, it's complete with the charger base, plug, strap, instructions & battery pack cover. Why was this particular phone Sonic branded? It seems kind of random, since there's no other Sonic or Sega element about the phone itself. Photo discovered by @JapanAnimePosters on Instagram
|Just what is this partially clear plastic item?
The answer isn't here! All that is known about it is that it can make noise/is a battery item, it is broken, and it was a prize from entering a contest on gum. The word "Lotte" at the top is the name of the Gum company that gave it away. It has Sonic in the winged ring, but the ribbon banner has been changed to Segasonic. There's a wire there, some kind of a tall base thing with metal & a yellow clip or something. It's shape is a bit like a basket ball backboard but why would that need noises? Write in for credit if you know what this prize really is. Photo discovered by @JapanAnimePosters on Instagram
|Team Sonic Racing DID have a bonus pack!
...In Japan. This is a super cool pack of bonus stuff you could get with the game by buying (what I guess would be) the deluxe collector's edition. As you can see here it has the game itself, then in the center is the collectible post cards pack, (on Gear School Supplies) at the top left is the plastic keychain (seen on Gear keychains) in the middle is a crystal cube with changing color light up base! Then on right right is a blue racing themed bag.
It's an exciting set of items for only 150 dollars (considering you are getting a color change crystal cube AND the special light up base. Nin Nin Game has it available....but only until it sells out which will likely not be long. If it sells out the link should be removed. Photos & owned by Hedgy
|Here is the interior of the open game box for Team Sonic Racing.
SonicGear doesn't usually feature games images or boxes & etc because other sites chronicle the games much better & have only game (and not merchandise at all) related content. However, this does appear in case it is some how special edition too, since it came from the above deluxe pack. Everyone should be able to see inside it, deluxe or not, because...
It's got a fun art in there, with the whole cast assembled in CG for a big group portrait. Photo & owned by Hedgy
|The crystal cube as its own satiny black packaging to keep it safe & comes with this light up LED base.|
|Here's the cool Team Sonic Racing exclusive crystal cube!
It has a way cool laser etched Speed Star Car 3-dimensionally rendered inside of it. You can see the car's name, the g ame's logo, & 'team Sonic speed' circle emblem that the game seems to introduce. Of course, they've got Sonic himself 3D-etched there to be standing by the car. The cube is always going to be difficult to take photos of because it reflects the interior onto its own inner-sides seeming to make copies of its images.
|Color changing crystals!
What's cooler than a cube? Why, one with a great LED light up base that shifts the colors of the light through the rainbow for each crystal to really highlight the awesome Sonic designs inside.
|Both crystals on the Team Sonic Racing set come with their specially shaped light up base. When the light catches on the etchings in the centers of the cubes, Sonic & the Speed Star change all sorts of cool colors that you see here. The Speed Star cube is the only one that comes in this bonus pack. The 25th cube is an earlier item.|
|With these close-ups you can see the details of both crystals.
The second one isn't exclusive to the game, it is a 25th Anniversary celebration item. It has the 25th ribbon/arch logo at the top, and classic Sonic in his 'finger waving' pose in the center. The slogan at the bottom is "Speeding Through 25 Years". It's a great opportunity to have a classic style one, since the other is so old and rare now.
|What do the cubes look like from above? You can mostly just see their strong lights. The LEDs have to be bright to highlight all of the detail of the designs inside. These are 2 great collectibles! There's super quality all around, they look totally perfect, and the light up color change just sends them over the top into super coolness! Grab these & they'll be a real jewel in your Sonic collection!
