|Sonic Statues are a very unique catagory.
These aren't the small things you can collect, these are the big real deal! Statues such as these tend to appear in SegaWorlds or at game shows such as E3. These are usually made of hollow fiberglass, with resin coating. Some of the older ones may have been plastered over, and then painted. This method of design makes them light enough to move around place to place, and also so that their large heads don't squash the rest of the figure.
Statues such as this are a very mysterious item. Since they belong directly to Sega in most cases, you'll likely never ever see one for sale, unless the place it was located in goes out of business. Some of them were used as point of purchase displays in big retailers. Still, they are intregueing to look at!
Statues such as this are especially wonderful because, if done right, they can be like looking at the charachter if it were really here right now! Because they are rigid, not like a plush, the accuracy can be very high, as well as life-size!
Statues on this page can be from anywhere in the world. Each entry will state where it was seen.

|This larger-than life statue is fully 3D and can be seen at the HMV store in England. It has nice detail, as seen with the shading on the eyes. You can tell this is really an improvement over older statues. Photo by:|
|Something looks to have gone awry in this picture!
Did Eggman finally get the best of Sonic by running him over with a compact car on a rainy day?
Not likely. Clearly, someone has gotten a hold of a Sonic statue and is going to transport it somewhere. It is laying down aside/behind the car, but the photographers' perspective makes it seem worse than it is. Wonder which statue this could be, and who got it! Photo by Iambored.
|Here is an interesting & possibly new type of statue: the 'hanging statue'. As you can see here, this statue would never stand up, or work with a base. It's Sonic, but he's shown jumping through the air. This makes for an interesting & dynamic large display...however he's got to be hung from the ceiling. (See the wire on his head there)
This statue seems to use a new & fresh approach. But where can you see it/where was it used? It seems nice & on model for Modern Sonic. Photo by:
|This statue appeared at E3 in 2012. As you can see, it was there to help promote Sonic & Sega All Stars Racing 2: Transformed. (You can see the boat-cars on the big poster thing) This statue is kind of strange. It looks like an odd mixture of modern & classic Sonic. Look at the spikes and sphere style head. Those are classic type, along with the super huge hands. But then the body & back spikes are sort of modern shaped. Plus, he also has no "chest top/neck area" at all...which both classic & modern Sonic should have. This gives the statue a sort of squished feel. The eyes are green (hard to see in the lighting) This is rather unusual. Photo discovered by Goclone999|
