Wow-o-wow! What a great surprise, the Sonic the Hedgehog Chess Set has been delayed until the 20th of December 2009. Lets see now.. odds on it coming out by the end of this year.. lets say... 5 to 1? againt that is (I always do the odds againt-for)
Small bit of news but the great Sonic Statue by First4Figures (yes, the one limited to 1500) is now out of stock in Australia and the EU (though some stockists that bought it might have a few in stock) and the North & South america ones are running into low numbers so pick up yours if you can and haven't so far. It would be nice if they would say about the next one (I'll give you 2 to 1 odds that it is Tails, 3 to 1 on Robotnik, 4 to 1 on Knuckles and.. oooh.. 10 to 1 on Amy Rose).
Oh and tomorrow, i'll post on the status of the chess set.. it's time for it's release (again) and i will give you 2 to 1 odds that it is going to be delayed.. boy, i seam in a better mood.. though i will say that i don't bet with money or anything.. just 'game' beting like with fake money and stuff.. Gambling can be easyly taken too far and lead to bad things.. this has been a public service annoucement (shouldn't i get paid for giving them?)
This took a fair bit of time but i now have the full score from SegaSonic the Arcade ^_^
Ripped by myself, you can really tell the limit staff the game had due to that fact that music was often repeated for different levels. I hope you guys enjoy it, i should have something else coming soon as a Beta (cause there might be a couple of small bugs).. look out for that!
Well.. things are a little busy it seams.. or atlest, a little busy when it comes to time to site down and do a fair bit of scanning and stuff so.. well.. the comics wasn't something i said would be weekly ^_^ but i'll be working on them when i can... might be better if i had a bigger scanner.. i wonder..
Anyway.. Today, something pretty small. I have the UK teaser Printed Advert added to the site. Find it in the Articles section OR, i have not fixed a small problem with the articles display in the game information so you can find it in the Sonic 3 game info too now.. Boy, I think i should see if i can streamline some of the php sometime.. using it is GREAT cause i cuts down on alot of work (and seams to help with load times too) but anyway.. Back to work.. i got a little project which should turn out pretty good..
I fixed the zip file for 'hero of the Year' short animation.. i guess when i checked all the files for damage, i not only missed some, but ones like this had a problem.. the zip says it's fine until you try to extract.. i better test some of the others too.
I don't know the full story here but i have added some information on Semic AS's Sonic comic from Norway... Now let me try to explain what i know..
Semic was a company that dealt with alot of different countrys around the area of europe that norway and sweden is in. Semic Press AB did Swedish translation prints of the Archie Comics 'Sonic the Hedgehog' comic. Semic AS did Norway prints of the Archie Comics. That should be pretty much it.. Anyway.. like with most smaller prints like this, i don't have a whole lot of info right now.. but enjoy it anyway ^_^
Today, i bring you the Sonic story for STC issue 2! The Story RoboFox! Now.. the story pretty much follows on from the last one in a way.. Though it has created a small problem for my timeline ^_^;. erm.. forget i said that.. that project has a ALONG way to go before it's ready..
Anyway.. I also noticed that for some reason, i wasn't putting the PDFs in the Download Archive.. So now you can download both issue 1 and issue 2 in the download archive, as well as via the comic information for that issue, or the related downloads for that company.. whew.. that's alot of places.. well.. 3.. oh well.. Enjoy! It's time for me to go back to a number of intresting projects i got on hand.. shame i think a few of them are going to turn out as impossible.. but oh well
My Metal Sonic Action Figure turned up.. I never get the full idea of the size of something until i see it and it's 11". That's press much the Sonic Statue if you remove the base. I have added it to the Site in the Merchandise Section and i have added an Image Gallery on it.
I'll probebly have the Mini Figure set soon but as normal, play is messing up my order (2 out of the 3 figures are the wrong one... don't worry, i'm dealing with it). Enjoy
There are reports being looked into that say TESP may be a few years older then believed. Due to a number of factors, i never kept a bit of paper that said the creation date so the current birthday is taken from the earlyest Proven date for the site. However a bit of thought has gone around and its been worked out that TESP may have started as early as 1998, making it the oldest Classic Sonic site in England as far as i know (and YES! it is the largest Classic Sonic site in England.. that isn't an stupid boost like these sites they say they are the best.. it is a proven fact and i'm very proud of it)..
anyway.. currently, the site is 9 years old as it's creation was 9 years ago (2000) but alot of things are hinted to it being created around 1998 or 1999 which makes it already 10 if not 11 years old.. which kinda means i just missed an anniverary.. shame about that..
