Ten New Merchandise Items added, these are the McDonalds and Burger King Sonic Toys. Though i have a question, i know the McDonalds ones were released around the world but the Robotnik one was changed (for the better really) for the Japanese Release for.. clear reasons but i don't know if the Burger King toys were released outside of England. Sometimes these places have different toys for different areas, sometimes not so if you know if the Burger King ones were out outside of England, please let me know. If there was a Japanese release, maybe there are different versions for Robotnik too? probbly not though. A couple of the Burger King ones i don't have so i have had to use the Advert checklist image.. still works though ^_^ Intresting note, a couple of years back at a bootsale, i found a guy selling a WHOLE Lot of Burger King Toys. So i was able to get all but the two am missing Packaged twice (apart from Tails, because i already had one open.. but without Stander). I would have gotten more if he had them.. but atlest i got one open, and one closed now ^_^
Just a small update to the AOSTH Character profiles. I really need to go though things with a spell checker.. the problem is i can't spell too way so it's pain if the word i put is not close enought for the spell checker or it's a made up word, or even if it is one of these words that has alot of words pretty much the same or just different spellings of the same word..<br /><br />anyway.. AOSTH Character Profiles update.. that's it right now.
A while back, when i first got paid webhosting, the site is set up the Address- <br />http://www.TheEmeraldStarPost.co.uk<br />This still works of course but i felt it was a bit long and hard for some people to remember or get right so the more common use one started-<br />http://www.TESP.co.uk<br />Then, the other day, i was looking around and though.. mmm, maybe something Sonic related would help get people to the site? Something people can remember and would link to Sonic no problem.. So now, you can also access the site via-<br />http://www.SonicHedgehog.co.uk/<br /><br />not bad huh? At the moment, that address might create problems if you want to add a global highscore on some of TESP's games but i'll get around to fixing that soon. I got a bit of a busy day today ^_^
6 New Merchandise Items have been added to the Merchandise pages. Not bad huh? Well. also i have been FINALLY able to tidy up some stuff in my room which isn't mine (long story) and i have access to some more of my sonic Stuff so expect some more merchandise soon ^_^<br /><br />EDIT- Opps.. 7 sorry ^_^
It make it faster to load and some other improvements, i have cut up the Merchandise section. When you go there now, instead of it all in on one page with section links, now it will display the section links. Each will take you to a different page with the same links and then the merchandise from the database for that type. It is now Much faster loading then before which is a good thing so you can find stuff and learn about stuff faster then before ^_^<br /><br />If you have anything to add to our Database, please let me know about it ^_^
Okay, Today is the little surprise. For those Outside of The UK, i'll explain. Back in.. well, last year, Delta Entertainment got the rights to the English Sonic DVD Releases. Since Anchor Bay Entertainment release the complete SU boxset, The Americans saw there WAS intrest in Sonic DVDs and decided to pick up there act and release Complete DVD sets. After these were released by Shout!, Delta Entertainment got the rights for the UK DVDs. Since the Americans had much more money, they were able to film and get stuff for special features. So Delta were able to include them in there DVDs. There first one was the Complete AOSTH Boxset. This had no special features but they included a sheet of 10 stock art and pretty cheap stickers. When they then Released SatAM with Special Features, they releases Better Stickers this time and a little sticker on the front telling buyers about this stickers. Then they released a New SU Boxset which included the features which were not made at the time of the Oringal SU Boxset. Again, they included stickers which were the best of the lot because of showing good art of different characters from the show, more then cheap oringal art or stock art that doesn't really even work for the series.<br /><br />Well.. i don't think i need to say all that but what the hey, anyway. I now have for you guys all the English Stickers scanned (Including the Exclusive inside stickers which wasn't on the AOSTH Set). After a bit of debate, i put them in the Animation Characters & Images section. I hope you enjoy them, the scans are pretty good ^_^
Well.. I have gone though the STC Character Profiles in the Comic Section and i have updated alot of it and added a couple of characters and images. Also now i have openned the Shogaku Yonensei Comic Section..<br /><br />There is good news and bad news on that.. Right now, it is only a Character Profiles section with about 12 characters. Out of them 12, only 4 have images. This is because i have very little information on this series, even though it meant to have gone for about ten years. Now, My Links in japan were basicly cut a few years back (and what links i had probbly wouldn't have been very helpfull). I have tried to link up with some older Japanese Sonic fans but they don't wanna be very nice to me at all... So this is probbly the most information you will currently be able to find on this series. Hell, i even have a problem with the credits names. The Series was writen by Kenji Terada but the Artist was never Sango Norimoto or Sango Morimoto.. one letter makes alot of difference. If you know anything more then let me know. And Quoting Wikipedia is just showing off how little you know so don't bother if that is your own refence source.
Well, all good things come to an end, so here are the last two Sheets i have, Sleet and Dingo's Ship from Sonic Underground of course. Tomorrow is a bit of a suprise ^_^<br /><br />anyway.. There are only two sheets again but they are intresting shots of external and internal views. Enjoy
Okay. Today we have some refences of the SU Van. This images, i hate to say, really show the poor grade of how they displayed the images on the DVD set. I hate when ever they do things like they did, images are cut off (and no, it's a movie clip so there is no fuller version on the disc). This ones have the text a little tricky to read.. Oh well. Anyway.. these are 2 sheets. Tomorrow is the Final one showing Sleet and Dingo's Ship and the day after (Sunday) is something that is pretty good for our non-English visters.. even good for the English ones i guess. Enjoy this and look forward to sunday ^_^
Well.. no..<br /><br />Impact Innovations, a UK/China company that release Retro Sonic Stuff had entered into a relationship with Amazon.co.uk and you can now Pre-order some of there upcoming stuff. There are a couple of bit behind the scenes going on by Impact have comfirmed the Products are pre-order for September/October. The Items on the site which you can get are:<br />Radio Controlled Tails (£9.99)<br />Radio Controlled Sonic (£9.99)<br />Sonic USB Flash Drive (£19.99)<br />Sonic and Tails TrackSet (£9.99)<br />Sonic 30cm Plushie (£9.99) <br />Tails 30cm Plushie (£9.99) <br />Knuckles 30cm Plushie (£9.99) <br />Sonic 10cm Beanie (£4.99) <br />Tails 10cm Beanie (£4.99) <br />Knuckles 10cm Beanie (£4.99) <br /><br />now, i have listed some of them as 'Should be out now' because these have been in shops for a while. I have the Sonic, Tails and Knuckles in both Plushie and Beanie form and, yes, they are worth it! I have seen this for Sale in Game and GameStation stores but there range can be limited.<br /><br />no images of the current versions are out (apart from what is already for sale) so the best i can give you is the Production tests shown on the Merchandise page. There is also a Sonic Webcam (£19.99) but when i saw the Production test, it was Neo Sonic so not worth talking about here.<br /><br />I have my order booked so i'll let you know when something happens. I do have an affiate account with Amazon but due to... problems i don't use it.. since these classic stuff has come up, i might think about doing some more work with it huh? help pay the hosting bills (Look, am not rich and this hosting might be a good deal, but it's still a fair bit!)
