while christmas does seam to be getting early again in the UK, we are just entering bonfire season first. But never the less, i have 354 Screenshots from Sonic Christmas Blast now up. I hope you enjoy. There was really no reason for the company to interlace the DVD, but like most companys, they do.. true, you won't really notice on TV or PC these days, but you will if you take screenshots the way i do. Oh well.. Enjoy them anyway. I had to go thought about 2700 screenshots I took today to get this ^_^
Added a new article to the SatAM section cause i don't have an AOSTH section just yet.. kinda.. it's taking about the two shows with alot of pre-SatAM stuff which is pretty intresting. This is from the Sonic Poster Mag #1. No clue as to who the scanner is but it was a bit sub-standard.. text was pretty out of focus in places, the whole thing needed cleaning a fair bit and stuff.. alot of work but it's done ^_^ It's not in the PDF Archive.. none of the ones from the Articles section are yet.. Enjoy
Oh, and the Sonic Christmas DVD is out yestureday, mine turned up today. The Double DVD is (as i thought) a card box with the dvd case and everything for Christmas Blast & one of the AOSTH DVDs as a bonus. So it's really worth getting that 2 disc for the sake of it while Amazon for just 10p difference
Hey I have uploaded a short 6 page comic from Sonic the Poster Mag #8, a spinoff title from the Main 'Sonic the Comic' by fleetway. The idea at first, it was a mag which had a couple of large posters and a short bit of information. The first issue had some nice information on the new sonic cartoons (Also featuring information on the unmade cartoon.. I Hope to have this info up at some point), Issue 2 was a walkthrough for Sonic Chaos. Then they decided to do oringal short storys (only about a page shorter then normal. issue 3 had a Sonic story called 'The Kid Cruel Caper'. Issue 4 was a Shinobi Story and posters as in the old Days, STC was a Sega comic and as well as Sonic stories, featured pretty good ones based on other sega games (with a form to fill in if you wanted to see a Sega game turned into a series). Shinobi was a popular one and so he had an issue of the poster mag. Issue 5 was back to sonic with the story 'Ocean of Horror!', issue 6 was the Sonic story 'Marble Garden Menace', Issue 7 featured a Streets of Rage story as they were another popular series (though very VERY Losely based on the games.. it would have been better if it was more true to the games), Issue 8 was a Sonic & Knuckles story 'The Chaos Emerald Thief', and issue 9 was a Sonic & Tails story 'Trapped in the Vortex'. Now, the STC Summer Special 1995, stated it was a collection of Sonic storys you might not have seen (the poster mag was a bit of a flop) and one new story. It printed the storys from issue 3,5,6 & 9. that left only issue 8's story NEVER reprinted at all. It's really weird. So I have uploaded that story from issue 8 along with a little notes page.
Anyway, it's up in the STC Comics page, and in the PDF archive page.
Well, minor note, i have just done a complete reinstall upgrade of my System to Windows 7.. If you have Vista, It's a MUST to upgrade ^_^
anyway.. cookie Jar are bringing us two nice DVD sets this year. Both coming out 26th of October. The first is a single disc UK release of 'Sonic Christmas Blast'. I'm not sure there are ANY features at all, apart from the disc. Amazon are selling it at £5.89 instead of £5.99 RRP. The other one is a 2 Disc version of 'Sonic Christmas Blast'. Disc one seams to be just the same as the 1 Disc version, and disc two comes with Bonus features of 4 AOSTH episodes, these are 'Over the Hill hero', 'Blank Headed Eagle', 'The Mystery of the Missing Hi-Tops' & 'So Long Sucker'. Amazon have this one for £5.98 instead of £9.99 RRP. If you already have the AOSTH Boxset, the question is 'Is it worth playing an extra 10p for what i already have?'.. well.. I went for the 2 Disc version for the sake of it. I need to update the TESP Amazon Shop but if you order either of them via the links at the bottom of this post, TESP gets a bit of money to help pay for hosting bills (which is about £240 a year! Whoa).
Since this now has a UK release, i will No longer be putting the episode up online for the christmas Period. Simple as that. Enjoy ^_^
I have added some new character profiles to the STC page.. about 12 i think..
Oh and before you ask, the reason why Sonic, Robotnik etc seam to be missing profiles pretty often is cause as main characters, it takes time to go though all there stories/games/etc to make a nice profile..
Updated STC Cover Dates, Cover artists and a couple of story credits. What's a pain, is there is one issue that CLAIMS that Cover and main story is done by Mick McMahon... Not a chance that Hack did them..
This is news Post 501! Why didn't i comment when it was 500? cause i didn't notice.. ^_^;
anyway.. added alot of info on the STC Poster Mag and i have been able to comfirm a couple of credits. Isn't that nice? I hope to get some intresting stuff that's in the works done soon so watch for them ^_^
Added the Bastei Poster mag.. I only got 1 cover and.. well, that's it.. Of course, the badnews is i have SOO little on it.. I believe it MIGHT have gone for 3 issues, but since it seamed to be advertists as a 'free gift' right near the end of the comics life, it seams unlikely there was more then 1 issue... but i'll check and find out.
Added more information for the Archie Comics, mostly cover credits for the Mini Series and specials and i have added the Cardboard tag from the Talking Sonic Plushie in both Merchandise section and Download Archive.
