Espio & Vecor to get Action Figures

Since the last blog post was so lame...
(Mostly just complaining about how stuff doesn't work, and letting everyone know there's an attempted fix going on on it) Here comes some good news:

JW will be making official Espio & Vector Figures
as reported by

who interviewed Joe Amaro from there. The interview is long and has personal details (ie who does he collect & etc) but those 2 were the main announcement. Chaotix fans (and there are a LOT of those) will rejoice for sure if they do a good job. And they've done darn good so far on ALL sculpts, so no problems there. This will be the next in line for 'fresh figures' for them, where no other company had made one before. They seem to have no problem with this, and even someone really detailed like Espio (buckles all over, etc) should do great.

They also confirmed a REAL Super Sonic Figure.
They label it as 'the correct version'. So they ADMIT that the super poser was a mistake? Who gave that thing the green light? It clearly states in the interview that they work closely with Sega, so who at Sega said "Yes, let's fleece the fans by releasing this yellow Sonic! We know it's not correct at all, but let's go ahead anyway and see who will give us money."

The whole issue of that figure is just really strange. The truth may never come out because it's getting to where no matter how it's phrased, it's not going to sound good. "Hold onto shelf space" might be ok, but still, it's a wierd move. I know it made a lot of people mad too, but in the end, it likely won't matter too much. Esp. if they set everything right with a really great REAL SS finally, because everyone has (clearly) wanted him for years, yet no one ever seems to deliver. No one got so mad that they'd turn down the real deal.

In all, it's a great news interview, and demonstrates that JW is going to keep doing new cool stuff in the future.
