Jakks will have the opportunity to manufacture and sell a huge range of Sonic the Hedgehog toys. This includes action figures, play sets and plush toys.
Yes, there are new Sonic plush toys coming. Yay. Also on the list are collectables. Of course, it won’t be just Sonic, but there will be toys for his friends and other characters in the franchise. All of them will be sold almost globally with the exception of Asia.
“We are incredibly excited to work with SEGA of America to bring this iconic property and character to life,” says Craig Drobis, SVP marketing, Jakks Pacific. “The Jakks line of toys, role play and dress-up extends the Sonic experience from screen time to play time.”
The new deal is for several years. While, there might not be any date revealed yet for the new toys, we have a good indication of when they might pop up. In November 2019 a new Sonic the Hedgehog movie will hit the cinemas. And Jakks will showcase its first Sonic toys during the New York Toy Fair. So, it’s safe to say, that the first Sonic toys will debut very, very soon! Keep your eyes peeled for them!
