F4F Tails
printable version
I'll put up Metal Sonic Statue images soon, but now F4F has announced and put for Pre-order Tails! On a Mushroom Hill based base, there is yet again two versions, and this is the weakest light up feature yet.. 3 Mushrooms Glow.. a bit pointless that.. I think i said i had fears of them doing this because it's a cheap way of making money, and i felt the Knuckles Light up feature was weak but.. boy.. Oh well. More information to come.

Still Sorry for the lack of updates.

Don't ask

just don't ask..

3 New Pieces of Merchandise Added to the Merchandise guide, and they are 20th Anniversary 'Sonic through time' classic figures..

I will make a couple of comments on these.. First, they are an american item, and i've only seen one UK shop carrying them, and they don't carry much of the line.. Without a checklist on the back, it's even hard to fully comfirm the whole list...

The next bit is.. They are okay.. Not great.. The 1991 Sonic's spines are more 1995/1996 length (which is much less then 1998 length, but more then 1991 length), and that Motobug... I was going to repaint one of mine to be a Sonic 1 Motobug but it would take WAY more then that to fix it.. The face place is not only the wrong colour, but wrong eyes, wrong mouth and it has engraved lines that shouldn't be there, the arms and antenna could just be pretty much repainted, along with the Exhurst, But the shell is well out there. It shouldn't have ladybird spots, and not a 'two piece' split, and should have a raised spot.. Oh well.. The 1992 Grabber? gets off lighty.. I looks a bit smaller, the eyes are wrong, the legs are a bit 'detailed' when they shouldn't be and it needs a full repaint, but that one is probebly possible to turn into a 1992 version via a repaint..

I don't personall own the Eggrobos yet but they look like they mostly just need a repaint..

All in all? they are based on the 2010/2011 'redesigns' that Sega kept showing off and used in Sonic '4' and Sonic Generations.. So.. For Classic Badniks? you still better try to hunt down the Sonic & Knuckles Collection Figures.

Not much
printable version
I'm busy with quite a few things these days and more at the moment, so work for the site has been going slow and the few updates i have been doing, having been worth saying about.. but i might as well say about them to show the site is still going:

1) Adding Sonic 1 Credit Image for Megadrive
2) Added 2 Badniks for Sonic Spinball (MegaDrive)
3) Added UK Title notes and image for Sonic 3D (Megadrive)
4) Minor Spelling fixes on Character Profits

see.. not much.. And while i have noticed it before in the past.. been running though my head is the fact that the two 'badniks' on the cover for Sonic 2 (Master System) do NOT appear in the game, nor do anything like them.. i'm trying to think if they could be bad versions of some form of badnik sprite in the game but nothing so far.. makes you think, eh?

New Credits System
printable version
The New Credits system is up and running. This system makes it easier to update and correct credits, as well as (though only 1 has so far) allowing credit images so that they can be comfirmed as correct. I've had to do alot of credit fixes for Sonic 3 because.. well, small mistake and i credits the Sonic 3 PC credits for Sonic 3 MD ^_^; silly me.. anyway.. That's fixed now and is the only section with Credit screenshots so far.

I hope you guys enjoy!

bits and pieces

A tiny note.. I've fixed the Search engine.. you see, sadly, i'm pretty busy at the moment and TESP doesn't get the kind of people that DO report problems, so after i've upgraded the server from PHP4 to PHP5, i wasn't able to find out that the search engine broke down Now i know, i have done a temporary fix.

More important news.. I'm still not quite sure (but hope to find out for sure soon) if First4Figures Metal Sonic will be avability in the UK but it doesn't look like it will be, meaning mine will cost a bit more ¬_¬ but it seams the next one is going to be a bit of an odd choice.. It seams to be Knuckles... I would have put good money on it being Tails or Robotnik, both of which make sense (Robotnik stuff is pretty rare outside of his AOSTH form, so it would have been great too) but there you go.. Knuckles..

They are also doing a special 'not to buy so many only contest prize' 20th Anniversay Sonic but that's Neo with just a small image of Classic so not really worth saying much about here ^_^

Games Master
printable version
Sorry for the lack of updates but here is something quick.

in the UK at the moment, games Master Mag have a Sonic 20th Anniversary Ultimate collectors special for £7.99. It comes with a set of 'retro' stickers (Sonic 1 MD sprites), 4 badges (1 from american Sonic 1 MD Cover, one of Neo from Sonic Adventure, one of Neo and Pseduo classic from 'Sonic Generations' and one with the 20th Anniversary logo), and a two sided Generations poster (one side is a picture for this new game, and one is a collection of Sonic though the years). I haven't opend my copy yet but it claims to have a list of All the games, Spin-offs, best power ups, levels and enemies, and tons of information and stuff..

I kinda doubt some of the information and alot of it is neo, but alot of classic and worth saying about. interesting to see if the 'michael jackson' information is based on the 'rumour' (and unlikely) idea of him doing Sonic 3's sound track or something else.. i'll probebly pick up a second copy before i open it though.. and i've got some stuff on which is why i've been busy.

NEXT Day Update:
Well.. Not to surprised.. they claim 'Every Sonic Game'.. they miss ALOT of them.. History isn't complete, 'Rare Merchandise' nope. they feature common stuff, the rare stuff is missing, Michael Jackson information is highly flawed, while not TESP, i noticed where some of the scans were taken from (and i doubt with permission of the scanner). Misss out most information on comics and cartoons and Music... I might get around to a full review of it sometime.. okay for the price but wow, aren't some of there claims up for missleading information since they are trying to sell it on the fact of some of the claims on the cover which aren't true?

Minor but nice
printable version
Today, in the Post, a game i ordered turned up, The Japanese Saturn version of Sonic 3D (completing not only my set of Japanese Sonic Saturn games but Saturn Sonic 3D games) and first thing i did? looked at the disc and have 4 high grade Wallpapers to share with you guys. You can find them in the Gallery under 'Wallpapers'.. and i'll say one thing.. 1280x1024 Res for a wallpaper is still a fair size but for back in 1999? these sure are impressive!
