Sonic the Hedgehog Action Figures
Jakks Pacific Small Line Sonic Action Figures 3
Jakks Pacific got the license in 2019, and continues here in 2020 and 2021.
This page will have their 2020 & 2021 articulated SMALL figures only. They have both modern and classic license, so any figure that falls in the "Small 2-inch Articulated Action Figures" category will be on this page if it was in 2020 or 2021. Bendy type figures will go onto a separate page. But if it's by Jakks Pacific and it's an action figure, check them out here.
UK NEWS: These & other JP figures CAN be at Smyth's Stores!

Crabmeat Badnick Small Line Figure Jakks Pacific has a good focus on variety as they add...Crab Meat the Badnick robot figure!
But which version of it is this supposed to be? This popular robot appeared in several games...but the eyes look way too big for it to be the one from Sonic 1? The giant eyes make the figure look both silly and a bit front-heavy.
The little 'shooters' (where an energy ball would pop out of the claw) are indeed sculpted into there, though you can't see it in the photo. The box back says it has 6 points of articulation which is...more than the actual characters? Hm. You can also note that probably a lot of these the 'blurb' on the back (at the left there) is wrong in all the languages. They gave it Tails' blurb by mistake.
The box back also reveals what's supposed to be released/re-released on the 'wave' with this, which is a modern Sonic, Metal Sonic (again, good), Classic Tails (who is new to the wave of singles), and a re-release on Moto Bug, which makes sense.
Given the sell-outs at Target and Walmart kind of...barely getting anything...it's really positive that they keep releasing popular figures over again for anyone who missed them.
Adding another badnick to the line is really fun. If you get more than 1, you could even set up a Green Hill type scene for figures. This item is in the SonicGear colleciton.
5 Below Stores Figure Accessory Cards Bargain alert!
Get to your 5 Below Stores in 2022! Or, send your 'send friend' in there to buy these if you don't have a store close by. 5 Below is bringing 5 dollar bargain figures your way, and it's a great way to accessorize your Jakks Pacific line.
As you know, Target has the Jakks small line modern figures for 4.99 each. However, they DONT come with anything at Target. But at 5Below, they cost the same (5 bucks) but you ALSO get an accessory from their larger line packed right in. (so the item is a bit big for the small figure) Knuckles and Tails come with the emerald and Shadow & Sonic come with the 10-Ring Icon. Oddly, the Sonic is classic on this batch, while everybody else is modern.
Why is this good?
Add more emeralds to your collection without spending on duplicate big figures. Get emerald colors you didn't already have. Accessorize your playsets with the ring icons. It's cheap figures to customize or to use to fix other figues. Be sure to comb the shelves and ask the store for more. A nice surprise in a good deal.
Gold Chao Figure Turn Arounds Here's what the gold chao looks like out of the package. It reveals that the head can turn and the arms can be raised and moved. But, that's all the articulation it has, as it's quite a small figure. The gold color is kind of a satin-finish gold, but it is still nicely metallic. This does quite resemble the one that would hatch out of the special color egg you could get in
Sonic Adventure 1.
It is a 'small line' item, but the size is actually pretty good to go with the larger 5 inch figures! It's an all right figure for the price of about 5 dollars. You can also get this as an "open card" figure in Walmart (near the registers always) Beware of it on the open card though: The paint chips easily off the head ball and the gold can also be scuffed. Try to pick up this one only on the bubble card, if you can.
Small Line Super Shadow Turns Small line figures gets Super Shadow as well, and he's decent for the size. His paint is nicely applied, but they do miss the detail under the shoes. They don't miss any of his cuff or arm/leg stripe detail. One hand is a fist, the other looks like it could hold something.
This is another figure that can be in the bubble card OR the open card (at Walmart) again, avoid open card unless you can't find him in the bubble--because the nose paint and shoe tips can chip in the store.
His articulation is their usual: shoulder, hip and neck, that's it. Some of these though the hip can be super stuck (as is the case here) and the legs won't move at all for fear of breaking it. It's still ok for 5 dollars.
