Where did the thong go?
There may be a single casualty item of the 'bad golive days'...
And that's the Sonic themed thong underwear. It's fake, of course, one of those terribly generic things where they iron on some of Sega's art to their own boring object and hope to get people to buy it over ebay or wherever. I know someone sent it in, I know it got onto the site, and I clearly remember the description for it. However, it seems it's totally gone now. It will be wonderful if it's the only item that thing erased completely. This week it returns, though submitted by someone different.
Interesting to see that JW can mis-tag as well as mis-card on the rare occasion. I suppose I am a paragon of virtue by resisting writing into the description "tag may be appropriate for what some people think should be done with this doll's design...the trash can!" It's no secret that I don't like the design on any of the current JW plushes, even their so called 'fixed' ones. I think they're off model, werehog included.
Did you know that Internet Explorer 9 is not compatible with Blogger where this blog is written? Well it's not. The publish button doesn't work and theres nothing anyone can do until MS decides to fix it. I use different browsers to stay logged into different things so I'm not logging in and out fiftymillion times a day in all that I have to do so it's no joy to have to crank chrome open to push 1 stupid button. HURRY UP MS and fix your dumb thing. So this is just a public service warning. It also explains why the dates of the posts are not correct.
Abolishing a Section of Gear?
For a while, I have thought of getting rid of a section of SonicGear: MyCollection. It's the only part that doesn't get updated, because the 'in collection' now changed into a footnote on items instead of double-adding them to that old, obscure stale section. Naturally, the items found there would be dispersed onto the regular pages as it was eliminated. It adds confusion & disorganization to the site.
Item of the week:
Sonic 3 promo cup. I own this. I don't know how the photo for it got missed a billion years ago when Gear was started. I can't believe it's been unseen ever since. It's a nice cup, especially in an era where free promos weren't super common.
Double mystery tin. Usually the mystery is 'where is this from' not 'what is this thing', making that item quite special for the week. No one knows the use for this embossed tin full of smaller tins. It doesn't help at all that the set is totally rare/that's pretty much the only photo of such a set that anyone's seen.
Unknown. Whatever was scheduled for this one (bootlegs) took a hella quick back-seat to the party supply bonanza that erupted this week. See, you never know what sort of interesting surprises can crop up with Sonic stuff!
