Top 10 Sonic the Hedgehog Collectables of All Time
As you’d imagine, a fair few of us here at Forbidden Planet International are huge gamers. So, when speaking to our friends (and ForbiddenPlanet.co.uk affiliates) at the excellent Sonic Stadium recently, we couldn’t resist asking them to put forth an expert to count down the top 10 Sonic the Hedgehog collectables of all time. Answering our call, Adam Tuff has stepped forth to lay down what he feels are the ultimate prizes for fans of the Blue Blur:
Over twenty-two years ago, Sonic the Hedgehog blasted his way onto screens to make his videogame debut on the SEGA Megadrive, and took the world by storm. With titles demonstrating a tour de force unseen before, an avalanche of merchandise followed soon in their wake to capitalise on hedgehog mania. Here are ten of my favourite pieces of Sonic the Hedgehog merchandise, that range from the amazing to the outright odd!
I’ve put this list together based on three criteria:
- Quality: Probably the most important criteria on my list, items are based on their attention to detail, production value and finishes.
- Popularity: I’ve tried to pick items that were extremely sought after at time of release, or that have garnered attention from fans.
- Scarcity: Limited editions, promotional items and rarities are often fantastic in their presentation, but are often only handfuls are made, therefore as this ancillary criteria I have tried to pick some of the items that are more difficult to come by or are only owned by a few fans.
