|Miscellaneous Japanese Sonic the Hedgehog Items|
|Here is a collection of items that just don't fit in anywhere else. Sometimes, the items are so random that you can't even tell what they are! This does not mean they are not interesting to look at, though. Impress everyone with your knowledge of the obscure.
This page is also home to photos of someone's MEGA Sonic collection. Housed somewhere in Japan, this collection includes so many great items, it's a must-see!

|Eggman, Sonic, Amy and Tails small figures. What are these? Notice that they are not standing directly on the 'ground', meaning there's some part underneath each one.|
|Eggman, Sonic, Tails, and Amy are pad-locks! These mini locks each have a metal and enamel flat shaped front part of each character. How interesting that there are even Sonic the Hedgehog locks!|
|Amy, Sonic, Tails and waving Eggman on little bases. The Tails is a bit cross-eyed. Why are they on bases? It was assumed that this is a set of stamps, but it does not show the image that the stamps produce.|
|Some...Sonic the hedgehog...sticks. What could these be? There's a paper card Sonic base...a white stick type thing and then some sort of character on the end of the stick.|
|Are sticks too pointy for you? Try some spheres! Um. What are these as well? These pages dive so deep into the miscelaneousness that you can't even tell what the items are supposed to be. It looks like they could be stamps of some kind, but the bits inside look like mutant RISC game pieces.|
|A selection of 4 plastic torso shaped coin-banks. You can get the money out with a plug at the bottom. The Tails bank looks like it is contemplating the proposition of quarters being dropped into his head, as the close-up shows. The Eggman bank is the rare-est of this particular set.|
|Here's a close-up of the Knuckles bank, along with the card that fits over it somehow. You can see the plastic plug that goes in the bottom.|
|Here's a close shot of the Tails bank. It's actually fairly cute, though the top makes the head look flat-topped. Each of the banks shows a bit of personality by the position of the hands. This photo of the bank makes it look better than in the official shot (above), as the details here seem somewhat cuter.

|5 Mini-lights. These are cute little light up figures. Each one stands on a star shaped base that lights up when you do something. They also have cords so you can hang them. Included are Eggman, Knuckles, Amy Rose, Sonic and Tails. This is a clever little set of trinkety items.|
|A wall-clock and a bag of some sort. It looks like there is a plush in the background. Isn't the sitting Sonic image on the bag so innocent looking?|
|Here are 5 boxes of...things. What are these? Bendys? PVC Mini-figures? Whatever they are, we have some rare gems in here! All sorts of great game robots or badniks! Chop-Chop the fish, Crabmeat the Crab, that flying thing that was purple, Roller, Caterkiller, the Pig who did bombs in Sonic 1. Even Eggman/Robotnik and...Metal Sonic!
What a set! The Sonic and Tails sculpts aren't that great, but the robots are spot on! I mean, this has to be the ONLY Bombin' Pig action figure you'll see today.
NOTE: These were also available in the UK in 1994-95
|Sonic the Hedgehog Yo-Yos. Clear plastic with possible spinny-designs inside. You can tell what all the designs are, except for the one in the lower right corner.|
|A Sonic Guitar. You can bet that this is probably the only one of its kind, and it is being held by Yuji Naka of Sonic Team. You can see some of his items in the background too. Look at the end of the guitar, it is like a Sonic Shoe. Info by Fueledbychaos|
|A Sonic Advance promotional item Bag. This may have been a pre-order thing in Japan only. Which is a shame, because this looks like a good quality colorful collector's bag.|
|And now, without further ado, the page presents:
Sega Joypolis' ultra Sonic the Hedgehog items collection! Wow! There must be hundreds of things in this stash. But why is Sega buying up multiples of Sonic goods? Or did these come from the manufacturers? Assorted drink cans, stickers, buttons, pins, figures, banks, a huge banner of some kind...the list goes on and on!
|A slightly different view of the collection. You can see the cans better, and also note that they have managed to collect an elusive Pale Sonic. This can be seen at Sonic Plushes of Japan, as well. What is that black strappy thing hanging over the Segasonic Banner? Is that an official framed artwork in the background? What is in that silver-edged box?
It is fitting that an event-type place like Joypolis has all this stuff to show in it's window. It lets the fans know what all is out there...just not where to get it.
|Even more toys in this great display of Sonic merchandise. What is in the tied up bag to the back? It looks like there are some snow globes, and 2 big banks. There's a can of Sonic pink fuzzy something near the top, and a classic Amy Rose on a box as well.
Unfortunatly, whoever this is didn't do any real close-ups of the Joypolis collection to further show what all is in here. Still, it is impressive!
|Back to the small stuff. You probably recognize the key chain from Sonic Keychains of Japan, but it is standing next to a walking wind up toy Sonic. Fun!|
|A medal on a ribbon. This was a prize in the Sonic Advance 2 Gaming competition. This medal appears silver, is there also gold and bronze?

|Some little PVCs would not be all that remarkable...except that there are 3 unique Chao in here. A normal Chao, a Nights-type flying Chao and a little Sonic Running Chao with bunny ears! Everyone would LOVE these, why don't they release them?|
|Behold....a square of cloth with Sonic on it! Just what we needed.|
|A Sonic tin of some kind. It has a picture of a CD on it, so it is likely to be a CD case. The Sonic art is definately Japanese style.|
|Sonic Adventure 2 Battle Beach Towel. This has a great and vibrant design, complete with Rouge, Chaos and Eggman too.|
|A collection of Christmas Tree ornaments, with a little Sonic and Amy Rose in the middle of the selection. A nice addition to the tree for the holidays.|
|And one last shot of the Sonic Collection as a surprise. This is probably the best photo they've taken so far of it. Sneaker Toppers, Soccer Sonic, some kind of running Tails on a post, an Amy figure, a whooole lotta mini Sonic somethings, and a note pad or coaster. Can you spot Metal Sonic? He's on the 2nd shelf. Joypolis didn't discriminate when they collected, there's a load of American and Brittish stuff in there too if you look hard enough.|
|Here is a Sonic lighter. Why?
There are at least 2 lighters with Sonic from Japan. This one is rather plain, with a little attached metal bit with stock art Sonic. The rest is just printing stamped onto the white plastic. Most people right away think 'smoking' when they see a lighter, but smoking is not cool...so why make Sonic lighters? I guess there are other things you might need to set fire to, (camping!) but it still seems like an odd choice of merchandise to associate Sonic with. Part of the problem might be that smoking is popular over there, even though you shouldn't do it and it's very lame. Sonic should be helping people quit!
Even though it's a bit odd, it's still collectible.
