Average Update...With Question

As stated...the update was a tad late.
However, it still managed to be average, and the mail count DID go down a little bit. A few of the things were 'older things' too which got on from back in...2010! The mail does go back further than that, so it'll be quite a while yet before the whole back-log is cleared out.

Jazwares General Announcements:
Amy Classic stuff starting to appear in the USA as of this/last week so now's your time to start hunting
Australia is firing up the 20th line in (presumably) all TRU's that exist there, so again start hunting...since they're later to the game they probably wont have the "staggered release" that the US and some of UK did so who knows what they're going to do with the zillion figures vs peg-space

NEW Thing:
"Multi Modern Figure Mega Pack"- Yes this did go in "Wanted Gear" but had to throw it on here too. It's pretty darn redundant, as it's just a big long box with every modern figure they've done so far (except eggman & Super hedgehogs) for about 35 bucks. Not sure how well this'll do...everyone likely already has a majority of these guys already making it a forced rebuy if you were only missing say...modern Amy. (yeeea....because she magically never ever single-carded nor bothered to appear with a badnik)

Item of the week:
Sitting Sonic bag. That stock art of him is positively charming. Why it wasn't used more is beyond me. It is not only well done but it is extremely appropriate for the classic look and era where he was 'cool' sometimes and 'cute' others.

Annoyance of the week:
Xbox Live Avatar Sonic costumes are LIMITED AREA RELEASE? Are they KIDDING? These are downloads! There is no shipping, no manufacture, no licensing, no import duty, no export, no NOTHING to stop these things going everywhere. But no. Somehow you can only get like 1 costume per country. USA got SS, but if you wanted Amy you needed to live in Australia or something. WTH? It's like they're irritating the fans on purpose with this arbitrary nonsense.'s not like the costumes are a huge deal or barring an entire Sonic game from release in Canada because "____" but it just seems to throw mud on people for no reason. Hopefully they un-region-lock these things later on. The real bummer is not having the actual physical preorder bonus be world-wide. Europe got a sweet kit but no-one else did. (often it's "USA got a blah but no one else did" or "Japan" or any 1 place. Why can't they worldwide actual items?

These may be questions but they're not "the" question. Which is...

Has anyone actually found the EasterEgg on the site?

No you can't get a hint because I forgot where I put it. But I got all reminded because it went up around Easter and its now like Halloween. If someone ever finds it I'll put up another.

Next week:
May contain the classic Amy. Hopefully more old stuff too, if the mail continues along this good trend. A couple new pages may be needed as well, there's some sorting to be done yet that'll make it easier for navigation/finding of stuff. Also another Generations (part 2) review may happen.
