new DVDs
printable version
Lets see.. Atlest 3 New Sonic DVD sets have been announced for Next year. again, Since the Boxsets are out, these are just collections of about 4 episode each. Information should be added to TESP (along with Cover shots that have been released) later in the week but for now, here are the ones that are known:

AOSTH - Sonic Who?
-16th March 2010
This one seams to deal with Episodes where Sonic has been dressed up or something. From the Cover, Episodes appear to be 'Birth of a Salesman', 'Musta Been a Beautiful Baby', 'The Magnificent Sonic' & 'Robo-Ninjas'.

SatAM - Sonic Forever
- 16th March 2010
Cover shot is out but seamly impossible to work out what storys might be on it. However, a description hints the Episodes are, "Fed Up with Antoine / Ghost Busted", "The Odd Couple / Ro-Becca" & Either "Game Guy" or "No Brainer". No idea about the Three.

AOSTH- Let's Race!
- 1st June 1020
No cover shot has been released so from the title, we can guess it is about racing, so a guess would be that it contents 'High Stakes Sonic' (he has to Race grounder at the end, and Lose!), 'Mass Transit Trouble' (He has to travel to round the world to three different ends and then do it again to be in three places at nearly the same time), 'Robo-Lympics'.. (there is a race as part of them) & 'The Mobius 5000' (where he needs to enter a race car in order to save an orphanage).

Also, a small note, about this year or last, a Latin American (odd term since it's really mexcian which is spanish not latin.. ¬_¬) released a Sonic SatAM DVD spoken in Spanish. Volume 1 is all i know was out and it was renamed 'Sonic the Adventures' even though it was SatAM. Go figure. Any one here know much about Spanish spoken Sonic?

Add and fix

Okay, Manic Search (The TESP Search Engine) has been improved again.. First, no-one told me about a small bug in it once i added Comic download options which meant you couldn't search for Comic artists or Writers that well. Nevermind, that's fixed now And i have also added Comic Characters so if you search for 'Amy' you will also find the Character Profiles for her in each comic she was in.. well, out of the main 3 since most others were translation/reprints of them (even though it's only Amy Rose in two of the Three Comics).

Enjoy

Gotten ... well, that's about all i know
printable version
I must admit, i was holding on to these in the vain hope of some help.. but oh well.. I'll run with this and still carry on looking around for help.

Oh dear, i better explain what i'm talking about huh? Today, i have uploaded Volume 1 and Volume 3 of the German Sonic Audio Series. Volume 1 'Auf der Insel der Robotertiere' (On the Island of Robots) starts the story of Sonic fight against the evil Doctor Ivo Robotnik.
Volume 3 'Dr.Ivo Robotnik dreht durch' (Dr Ivo Robotnik Revs Up) deals with the end as Doctor Ivo Robotnik has Hanni and Sonic has to save her and put an end to Robotnik once and for all..

I won't give much away but WHOA! What a shocker ending.. Can't understand too much of it though.. which is WHY i want the help of anyone that speaks german. If you just know german and you are reading this via a translator, don't worry, that's fine. All i need is for it to be writen down.. yes, in german is fine! I'll take it from there. Oh well.. I'm looking around for help but so far.. No dice..

Oh, if you didn't know, i already have part 2 up so that's all 3 parts now. I don't know where the rips for parts 1 and 3 come from since i can't get hold of the oringal tapes, but they are good and thanks to who ever was able to rip them ^_^. I kinda wish i knew who it was.. not only could i get a good cast list from the case but maybe they could help with translation work..

Card Time
printable version
The File size is a little larger then normal but our 6th Annual Flash Christmas Card is now out! You can click on all 4 characters in it for something different to happen (I would suguest clicking on Sonic last, but it doesn't really matter). Find that in the Christmas Cards Section under 'Site' on the Menu. I hope you guys enjoy this. Bluedude helped with the layouts by filling in a little storyboard for me (3 panels) and i took it from there.

Oh sorry
printable version
Sorry about this but i noticed the other day and i just got around to doing something about it.. Japanese Characters now display.. there was a bit of problem with the Text encoding so they wouldn't come out at all and it came up errors.. All fixed now, though watch out if you don't have japanese text support installed (why not?), then it'll look like junk symbols. but you should be fine.

earlyer then planned
printable version
A Bit earlyer then planned, but another Craft bit has been added. the Christmas Tree Topper - CheckBoard Edition.

What is the CheckBoard Edition? Well.. the Topper as released had a bit bar bit on the bottom with a slight rise to the feet. However, on the Cover of STC #14 (which it came with, remember?) the image was a fancy background with the topper (which the real one sat ontop of it) but it was different. The difference that mattered? instead of the Blue bar, it was a Checkboard (GreenHill) design yet this wasn't what was released. So, what i have done is put up this second version of the Topper with the Checkboard pattern so you have a choice of the two now!

Why this checkboard design on the cover? well.. one of two reasons really. Either it was the oringal design which might have been changed to lower printing costs (yes, back in 1993 (as sometimes today) if there were two less colours, it was cheaper for this kind of printing) or some other reason, OR the second reason might have been they thought it looked better for the cover. Since the inside instructions don't show any colour or design on that bottom bit, it's a little tricky to tell which. Either way, doesn't matter if it was never made to be released, here is a version! See it in the Crafts Section. I should have some more crafts up soon.. maybe later today..

EDIT: Added the Green Hill Zone Paper Craft model from the Sonic Channel Official Website.

Whoa?

Well.. Well.. The Badnik information has been updated to feature the Japanese name (in both Kanji and romaniziced version.. note, i might have the odd symbol wrong, but i was a bit surprised how some symbols translated when i knew they were the right symbol.. ( �o is a Ba yet a number of people seam to say it's Va .. odd but all my langage sheets say Ba, and so does the character map).

Of course, if you don't have a japanese character set install (you should have) or there is a bit of a problem with your browsers text encoding then you might not see the japanese characters right. But that's only really a small problem.

So far, they are only up for Sonic 1, Sonic 2, some of Sonic 3 and some of Sonic & Knuckles. Shame some of the Manuals don't have full infomation for all the badniks.. that's going to be the main problem.

Oh and i hope to have a new badnik bit up soon to rival the boss guide bit.. I'm already get trivia together for the badniks.. Of course, you guys know what Sonic 1 Badnik is named after the german Fieseler Fi 103 Right?
if not, you will have to wait..

Is that all? NO! Not by a long shot. If you go to the 'Fun' menu you will now see 'Arts & Crafts' section. This is where we will put fun little arts and crafts relating to Sonic and friends. So far? Well, today i add something which has taken alot of work.. a Sonic the Hedgehog Christmas Tree Topper! This was first given out in STC issue 14. I could never get mine on my Tree, so i had a little tree i had it on, and ever since 1993 (when it came out) it was sitting on that tree every year until, sadly, a few years back i think my parents decided to be a bit stupid and get rid of the old little tree for no reason so now it doesn't have a home (though i did get it on my tree one year since then (last year i had a plushie garfield.. that was a big job to get it to sit there (Note, use string and attach it more to the wall and ceiling))).. where was i?

Oh, right.. for a long time, i have been wanting to scan it in but never got around to it. Well, i finally got round to it and kinda wish i hadn't.. it was a major job.. Basiclly, i had to strip the whole thing down to it's lines and clean them up, recolour, restore, go though a bit of paper getting it so i'll line up for double sided printing, scanning and do a bit of a clean up job on the intructions from Issue 14, and anyway.. It's out now! You can download this, print on card (or print two pages on paper and stick to card, what ever), cut it out and have it on top of your tree ^_^

There might be another version of this coming out soon, but either way, it's a nice little christmas update huh? i hope to have more and more arts and crafts stuff to come in the future.

Well now.. Enjoy all of that!
