I am not on Twitter. I am not on Face Book. I have no plans to join either or ones like them. There are good things about them, but more bad things then good. Some of what i think are bad things, some might think are good things. That's up to you. But just say, I'm not on either and i never will me.. Dispite the amount of places i'm going to of late they say they have justed started for XX amount of reasons.<br /><br />This has been a public service Annoncement on behalf of TESP
I have noticed yet ANOTHER Illgeal knock-off CD collection of Sonic games. This are normally cheap things were some one calling themselves a fan puts Roms or such like onto a CD or DVD and tries to sell it. A while back, i said about a bad 'Knuckles Chaotix' one very easy to find on Ebay, well, these scum have gotten to amazon with 'The ULTIMATE SONIC THE HEDGEHOG GAME TRIBUTE '. Surely, they don't expect us fans to believe illgealy using good Sonic games to line their own greedy pockets is a Tribute do they? Worse them them bootleg DVDs on EvilBay (Yes! The amount of illgeal items on the place is WHY i hate it sooo much)..<br /><br />So watch out! I have reported the item and i hope to keep on doing so as long as true fans are being conned by these prats.<br /><br />EDIT: Also noticed "Sonic Definitive Music" vol 1-5 as well.. These too are bootlegs. For the stuff which is more allowed to be shared (grey area), you can get the files free from TESP anyway! And if these guys are stealing these from TESP, i for one would not be very happy at all!<br /><br />There is a seller on Amazon called 'loopy967' No not buy ANYTHING from the guy. I can't comfirm all of it, but basiclly EVERYTHING is he selling is bootleg. Illgeal and you are only giving money to him for his own pockets! Almost as bad as when i had to help a charty shop out cause someone gave them a whole bunch of bootleg dvds, which if they sold would put them in MAJOR risk. it is stealing and worse! You can be arrested for selling, Buying and get in trouble for owning these items.
yesturday, Sonic Der Comic issue 7 showed up through my letter box. That is a nice piece of my collection.. it really is.. Though there wasn't too much more information i could get from the issue. Mostly, it comfirmed what i had worked out.. and i updated the side and comfirmed it.<br />I was just fliping though to see what else information and stuff i can find and something REALLY jumped out at me.. It was an advert for a set of 3 Sonic german Audio Drama Cassettes... It was kinda a 'Wow!' moment.. I need to scan the covers (very basic indeed) but i have added a new section to feature stuff like that on the site.. In the 'guides' section, under 'Others. These are done by Karussell.<br /><br />I'm trying to get some more details and stuff, but it's pretty good so far eh?
Big Update huh? as part of work we have been doing to improve the site, See the Whole New Menu!<br /><br />It's the Blue Sphere Menu! I have also moved things around, shouldn't be that hard to use, in fact, should be easyer but if you aren't use to it, it might take a few days ^_^; sorry about that.<br /><br />basicly, just move over the headers, Anything with the Hand pointing, means you can click on it (i might see about changing that icon later). If it's got an arrow, it's opens a sub-menu. and Yes, the Animation, books etc Sections you can click on AND open a sub-menu if you like. a couple of pretty pointless sections have been lost though (like Wallpapers, since it was just a link to the gallery anyway), but i might be expaning bits like the Gallery to include a sub-menu.<br /><br />Anyway, i hope you guys enjoy it! we got more changes in the works.
TSW Seams a bit dead at the moment doesn't it? well.. there are things going on but we have a few major problems. One of Major-ish cast member has left without saying anything & one female member is unable to record for the forseable future. Where does this leave us? well.. Right now, we about 3 comfirmed cast members. There are a few people who have kinda come forward for some roles if/when needed but this still leaves us in some problems.. One major person we need at the moment, is a female to fill in a number of roles. The Main Female role that needs to be cast is Tikal. Other roles would be then mostly one-offs unless needs araise and even then, i would ASK if you can do more, Not tell. We are fan based and small time so we can't order anyone about even if we wanted to ^_^<br /><br />Anyway.. All you need to be able to do is read a script and record into a microphone. If would be good if you have some level of being able to act (but far from being needed ¬_¬) and you should have access to a good microphone, i'm afraid a moblie phone might not be good enought (though, if you wanna try, go ahead).<br /><br />Please seam samples if you are intrested to the normal address of "JoinTSW@tesp.co.uk" Samples only need to be you talking and showing off some stills for a bit. Thank you
I should have posted this the other day but sorry, i have been a little busy (partly) and partly don't quite understand the full situration, but anyway..<br /><br />First4Figures have posted this news on there site:<br />"Our Ocarina of Time Link statues and Sonic the Hedgehog statues finished production last month and are now en route to our distributors in the US and UK. We had hoped to get these statues out to our customers before San Diego Comic Con, but unfortunately they we’re held in customs too long. However, they were released from customs yesterday. As soon as Comic Con is finished, our distributors will go back and arrange shipping. The Phazon Suit statues are just finishing production in China and will shipped from the factory and arrive at our warehouses in late August where they will be processed and shipped out to our customers. We appreciate your patience."<br /><br />Now, the bit i don't understand is how this will effect everyone. Clearly, US orders will take a little longer cause alot of people are busy with the Comic-Con BUT it doesn't quite explain about the UK orders. I can't see how they would be effected but there you go. We shall have to wait and see.
As part of the changes i'm working on, the intro page, you might have noticed, has changed a little.. not much but then there isn't much to change is there? <br /><br />Anyway.. I ordered some new Sonic stuff and it turned up yesturday so i have the info now on the site. 3 New Sonic items which seam to have come out this year.. two keyrings and a keycap. They are pretty nice too.
Just added 5 new Removed bit for Sonic 2. Each of them is a Removed badnik. This are five different badniks that were planned but never happened for the game. A few of them, you will notice were reused, or atlest the ideas were. Others not. What is intresting, and i am toying about with it, is that the Snail one seams to be quite easy to 'remake' by editing the Snail Bot sprite that was also removed. They don't act the same but looks similar.. but then, the Snail from Sonic 3 is similar too ^_^ Ideas live on.
Added Knuckles Picture for the intro, Added 3 new bits of Merchandise and added Title shot for Sonic Underground Handheld game (at last)<br /><br />I got more stuff to work though and add and i'm getting a number of nice items over the next 3 or so weeks so you will have to wait for that stuff ^_^<br /><br />EDIT: I have also added the Bastei Sammelband (Omnibus) issue which was Sonic der Comic. The omnibus they put out changes as to what title from Bastei's range. Issue 1002 happened to be Sonic's turn ^_^
