Sonic the Hedgehog’s look hasn’t changed much over the years and now the Boom8 series from First 4 Figures is putting out two classically posed versions of this speedy protagonist.
This statue shows off Sonic’s spunky yet jovial attitude. Based on the cover of the very first Sonic the Hedgehog game, Sonic is posed with one hand at his side and the other with a pointed finger showing he’s number 1. Standing with one leg propped behind the other gives off a sense of winning confidence that comes together with his eyes looking off to the side and his slight smirk on his face. It embodies everything fans love about Sonic’s assertive attitude in one simple stance and it’s spot on. Standing about 3-inches tall atop a black base, this statue comes packaged in a windowed box that can be used to display him as well. This is a perfect version for any gamer looking to boost their skills only to be trumped by Volume 2’s action posing.
If you are looking to display the spirit of what fans love about this blue hedgehog then Volume 2 might be right up your alley. This 3-inch tall statue features a snapshot of Sonic in a running pose. His arms are spread out and back to show the wind of his speed pulling them behind his running body. With his body slightly angled and head forward you might think a high-speed camera caught this speedster just after charging up to run full speed. It’s the perfect classic look on his face that really brings this statue together making it a perfect addition to Sonic fan’s collection.
They are both available for pre-order and will be officially out in April 2018. Whether you prefer the boasting stance of Volume 1 or the snapshot of speed with Volume 2, both versions speak to the spirit of Sonic that fans love. Make sure to order one or both of these statues today to show off your gaming love before these statues run out of reach.
