2nd update for the week!
Really trying to get things back in control here by posting as much stuff as possible. Need to fight back against all the stupid technical difficulties & delays that have kept the site weighed down with blah updates and not enough fun stuff.

Annoying item:
Angry wall clock. Seriously? That's like the ONLY picture of Sonic you wouldn't want on some big bold lame analog clock on your wall. Why do you want angry hour, every hour? Rage-a-holic nonsense on whoever designed that thing. Yes yes 'steamin' Sonic' the stock art is not often represented but who wants a grump?

Clearly, one of my favorite collectibles. Inexpensive, useful, show-off-able, stylish, easy to store & easy to display. You can't go wrong with lots of these. Good to see the week getting a nice sprinkling in regular & winter wear. Still need to own several though...hurry up Sears.

Several things moved around behind the scenes this week as well, going off of international unknown and getting info added. Another update IS likely for tomorrow as well, to finally get the new JW stuff up, and the pile of fan items which has accumulated as well. Depending how well it goes, the First4Figures Metal Sonic statue/info will also show up. Trying to move the site into the new year on a good note...

All-Day Update

What does updating the site all day do?
Makes for a lot of fixes, and also a lot of items added. So...into the content!

Sonic Colors Wisp Pack USA-
This thing went up this week, and also into the SonicGear collection. Opinion? Dissapointing! As the entry says, why not just port over the one they released in Australia? At least THAT Sonic would be different. AND you're essentially paying 13 dollars for 2 wisps. You know everyone's got at least 1 Sonic already from their previous releases. (If not, kudos, I guess?) I would have liked to see them release him with the open hands/ability to hold wisps.

Prediction/Hope: WISP PACK. Give us some kind of multi-pack with all the wisps. Either throw in open-hand Sonic or don't, just put out a wisp pack. What's this going to do? Irritate everyone who dropped 13 on the first thing up there, that's for certain. Extra good: resculpt the white one into Yakker, spread the tentacles out so it stands up better. It would be a waste to not use all the wisp molds they made anyway.

Sonic Earbuds-
With just his face sticking out of people's the rest of his body in their head?? I mean this is one of those designs that may look better on paper than in practice. Still, the whole thing is well sculpted, it's just a shame about all the reports of poor sound.

This also knocked out a couple more of the known 'bad code' pages, so future hold-ups will be far less common. I hope.

Trying to plan another update, maybe for tomorrow. The mail is going well, but there's a lot of stuff to go. Expect t-shirts!
