We also try to give you more like Articles from comics and Mags about the Blue one and his friends, and Articles made by TESP Staff members, to Our own Oringal games and works!

Alot of forum members have ... dispeared.. why? i've been working on cutting down on Spam bots that have joined over the years.. most of them never did anything, but a few did post and i was 'unsure' if they were spam or not.. well, thanks to the one great Spambot database site, i've checked them out and got rid of the spambots.. the posts are still there though.. might get around to deleting them.. but most you can't really 100% tell are spam..
Oh and if your account got deleted by mistake (not likely) or you try to join and i don't let you and you think this is a mistake, use the contact form to contact me ^_^
Okay, I've started the overhaul of the Merchandise page. I've remove some of the information from the main page of it, so you can always click on an item for more information. I've also tied Series together so it'll show you the over items in that Series, which you can click on for information on them.
Also, again, I have updated the Search engine to feature search the merchandise to an extent. Also I have added more stuff on the Help Pages
I've added 5 more items to the Merchandise section and.. well, there isn't much more i got of this set, most of them i have even less information on.. I'll have to work more on the restructure of the section next.
Instead of doing something else, i worked a bit more and removed 1 item from the merchandise section, to replace it with 11. yep, 11 of the 10 inch Sonic the Fighters Plushies! So, that's the 10 inch set and the 4.5 inch set.. i'm sure there was another set that was bigger then the keyrings, but smaller then the 10inchers.. well.. maybe, maybe not ^_^
Also, I hope to be able to sort out the Merchandise section soo.. I'm already linking stuff together via 'Series'. I hope to add a search feature that is partly tied in with the 'Manic Search' Search engine ^_^
37 New Items have been added to the Merchandise Page.. Most of them are Plush Toys! Sadly, only 34 of these have images. I got a number more to sort through and add, probebly tomorrow..
Also, i'm gonna start putting stuff like this on the site in sections (Maybe) but if you have a Photo or better photo of any Item here which needs one, Or if you have an item that isn't listed here, please get in contact so we can help add to this guide of all Sonic Merchandise! Thank you
I was messing about a bit with the updating of the Board yesturday and well.. it didn't really work but i got a couple of things dealt with and i have turned off commenting for these news posts.. Comments weren't made anyway..
Also, Something I want to point out. On TESP, in the game information, we feature Character Heights.. This are the ORINGAL heights of the characters. We do also give source information for how we worked out the height. Now, Sega's Current 'Offical' Classic Sonic data isn't right. Yep, Sega are in the wrong. Why? Well, there size charts for the Classic Range use the same heights as the Neo Characters. So, for example, Metal Sonic (which the Oringal CD Japanese manual said was about 75cm tall) is now 115cm Tall. Yep.. Neo Characters are about 40 Cm taller. This was probebly done in the Neo range because of all the Humans around, but Wasn't true for the REAL Classic Range.. why they have retroactively tried to Change the old character heights is a bit unknown.. there also seams to be some small design tweaks (I won't talk about Amy Rose, because i have already dealt with that in the Article about her Design). True, they always tweaked designs in the first place, a bit (like from Sonic 1, to Sonic 2, to Sonic 3 etc) but Tweaking the Design after the fact is a bit annoying.. though no real problem.
I have writen this all out anywhere yet but a new forum rule (due to spamers) is that if you don't have a vaid E-mail address, you don't join... in a way, that's been there for a long time because you needed to active your account via a e-mail, but now i'm 100% in charge of that, you REALLY need a vaid E-mail.. also, if you have anything as a site address or sig or whatever which isn't "okay" for the site (like too adult), you will not be able to join either.
