Cool sonic fan to come here
16! Years and still going! Welcome to TESP!, The Emerald Star Post. Here we aim to give you all the stuff you were need for your Classic Sonic habit, and when we say Classic, we mean the Best of the Blue Furred Hedgehog himself, From his first game in 1991 to his last Cartoon show in 1999. Not only do we give you all this information on All his Games, Cartoons, Books & Comics, but we are collecting a database of information on all merchandise for him, from T-shirts and Jigsaws, to badges and Modern 'Retro' gear.
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! Something here we don't have that you want? Check out the Contact Page and tell us! we will be happy to do our best to help out! Just put your mouse cursor on the menu bar above to see the sub-menu of all the pages in that categorie has. Or check below for the site news and updates!
It's about time for a new poll..<br /><br />When you first come to the Site, by whatever address (we have three ^_^) you are shown flash image of Sonic through the years from Sonic 1 Game, to Cartoons, to Sonic R, to Ending with Sonic Underground showing his small changes in style between 1991 to 1999, the Era of our True Blue Hedgehog!<br /><br />I have been wondering if people would like more? Maybe a bit random so it features Other Characters like Tails, Knuckles, maybe Robotnik etc. Different Characters will probebly have different level images in the background too.<br /><br />So.. what are your views? Here's the Poll!<br /><br /><strong>Should we do Mutilply Intros?</strong><form action="http://www.TESP.co.uk/Poll/vote.php" method="post"><input type="hidden" name="poll" value="38670740281e.cgi" /><input type="radio" name="pollanswer" value="3" /> Yes<br /><input type="radio" name="pollanswer" value="5" /> No<br /><input type="radio" name="pollanswer" value="7" /> Don't know<br /><input type="radio" name="pollanswer" value="9" /> Don't know what you are talking about<br /><input type="submit" value="Vote" /></form><br /><br />Oh and i send my harddrive away the other day, i should hear about it within a few days.
I have recieved word from the Company 'First 4 Figures' that their First Classic Sonic Statue (of Sonic himself) will be shipping from the factory soon so at Distributors in about a Month. If you have ordered from the company directly, you might get it earlier i guess.. I'll let you know when mine turns up ^_^<br /><br />Also, after there 3 Piece Sonic Vinyl Set (Featuring Sonic, Tails and Knuckles) They have comfirmed with me that they WILL be doing a Second Series. When this will be or what the next Sonic 12" statue will be (Probebly Tails though) is unknown and i'll keep you up to date with news as i get it.
sorry about things. I'll be sending my Harddrive to be recovered this week, and i don't expect everything to be all done before next week, so i'll carry on with the first of the Virgin Novels then Okay?
At the moment, there will be problems..<br /><br />I had a major problem and lost my computer. I got a new one but i'm having a little trouble with the data (bloody Backup says it is damaged and only has a small amount ¬_¬) plus i lost that weeks worth of stuff and right now i can't access that drive..<br /><br />So book update will be late.. had it already too -_-
Added Information and Covers on 3 new DVDs, two AOSTH ones and one SU one..<br /><br />Boy, I'm getting a little fed up with all this cheap American 'So many episodes' after they release the complete lot.. Mosty in the UK, we get the few 'best of' collections first, then complete series, then the complete lot.. not the other way around. Well.. not often. But at lest the US have a bit of money to put into original covers.. some aren't too bad.
Some people are sure stupid.<br />There are a number of Collections of Sonic games for PC on eVilbay (eBay to people that don't know how bad the place is) and even CD sets of games.. Very few are Official. in Fact, the only Official Classic Sonic games for PC are:<br />Sonic CD (with American Soundtrack)<br />Sonic's School House<br />Sonic & Knuckles Collection (Sonic 3, Sonic & Knuckles, Sonic 3 and Knuckles) (Non-Japanese Version comes with Sonic the ScreenSaver)<br />Sonic R<br />Sonic 3D (PC version has a mix of Saturn and MegaDrive versions)<br /><br />Any thing else is against the law, the seller is braking the law selling it and you are breaking it by buying it! Don't be bloody stupid, this bootlegs are a reason why more official versions AREN'T coming out.<br />If you are thinking of buying something like this on eVILbay and you are not sure if it is official, well, why aren't you? for one thing and you can check with TESP. If not me, or the site, then someone around here will help you out by checking it.<br /><br />EDIT: Before you start all e-mailing me, i forgot Sonic Mega Collection Plus.. a Collection of Old Sonic games with Neo Features and boxart... if they changed them features and boxart, it might have half way good.. as it is, you are better off buying an old saturn and Sonic Jam.. probebly cheaper for what you get too.. But that's up to you guys.
Yes, It's Back ^_^<br />after a pretty bad weekend for me, i have started on the virgin Sonic Novels. Sorry the Cover for this first one (Robotnik's Lab) isn't great but i got few problems with my copy.. anyway..<br />The sample is the first Chapter.. well, 'The Story So far' and then the First chapter. Sorry it's not all selectable text but these ones (and probebly the fantail ones) won't be.<br /><br />Oh and i'll be updating the page on Robotnik's Lab cause i do know that the cover i show isn't the final version, it's a prerelease cover.. But then, i said i had problems with my copy didn't i..<br /><br />Enjoy!
Sorry, i had hoped to be able to work on it so it would altest be today but no.. Let me explain the current problem with doing Book Samples:<br /><br />I'm running out of Books! Most of the Released Books have samples now. there are a couple of books i don't have. The rest? well, the UK Novels i'm trying to type up the first chapter or two but since i want them typed and still as true to the oringal print (same amount of words per line etc) it's a pain and takes time.<br /><br />The UK Adventure Game Books by Fantail... Tricky to work out a good way to do samples of them and again, alot of typing. The UK Adventure Game Books by Ladybird.. Due to Spine problems, i'm unable to scan the first two correctly without taking the books apart (and i'm not going to do that!).<br />What's left? the Guide Books... Very Tricky to do then so they won't be editable text but some run into either Spine Problems or size problems (see next item)<br />US Look and Find Book.. Major Size Problems.. each page is bigger then my scanner so to get a preview (which, since of the book size, will probebly be the whole book) Would take a while since each page would need a couple of scans, and i would have to do alot of work to line them up just right.. very tricky..<br /><br />And i have time problems.. i gotta do ALL this PLUS TSW, Other TESP, and other work... Time is not a friend... oh well. You have to admit, TESP is already one of the best sites around due to our content ^_^
Wow! Big Day! TESP is 9 years ago.. That's almost a decade.. And what do we have for you?<br /><br />erm.. well.. How about Amy Rose Dancing?<br /> <img border="0" align="none" alt="" src="http://www.tesp.co.uk/cutenews/data/upimages/AmyDance.gif"><br /><br />not good enough? Oh well.. We also have information and cover shot on Archie Archives volume 11 and a Pre-SatAM Sales Flyer which shows some nice stuff of the canned 'Pre-SatAM' Series and was also meant to sell AOSTH too. That's in the Articles section... Sorry, but for now, that's gonna have to be good enough
I have added a Sample of Ladybird's "Sonic the Story".. Sorry the quailty isn't up to par but this was a pain to scan and my copy is a bit damaged.. i might try to get a better copy sometime..<br /><br />Oh, and i have added some icons to Manic Search which makes it look nicer. Enjoy
