Celebrate Over 30 Years Of Sonic With This New Statue

Dark Horse Direct | SEGA

Coinciding with Sonic’s first appearance with the SEGA Genesis, Mr. Needle Mouse appeared in SEGA Visions magazine alongside the publication’s mascot Niles Nemo. At the time, none of us knew that this blue hedgehog would become a gaming mascot on (almost) the same level as Mario. Over 30 years have passed since that day, and SEGA’s icon is still running strong, with two hit feature-length films under his belt.
It’s a cause for celebration! Sonic is in his 30s, and that means he’ll soon be feeling that pain in his joints and have to settle down to start a family with Amy. Maybe he will finally get a restraining order against Chris Chan? What we do know for sure is that Dark Horse Direct is taking pre-orders for a celebratory statue!
The statue is marked down to $479.99 from $519.99. Sonic’s anniversary statue is due out in the second quarter of 2023 and measures 16.4″ tall, 12.4″ wide, and 17″ long.

The highly detailed Sonic statue was made to commemorate Sonic The Hedgehog’s 30th anniversary in the games industry and has since become one of the most beloved video game franchises to date. The design is inspired by the official artwork of the anniversary, where Sonic looks like he’s stepping out of the gigantic gold ring.
The base has a metallic regal design fitting for an anniversary celebration, and each side of the base represents a different zone in the Sonic The Hedgehog universe: the Studiopolis Zone, the Chemical Plant Zone, the Press Garden Zone, and, of course, the iconic Green Hill Zone. And last but not least, the top of the base has a mirror finish to give the entire statue a more grandiose appearance!
