ToyNews reports that Jakks Pacific will lead the US and EMEA toy roll-out for the new Sonic the Hedgehog movie. And the initial wave of toys is coming in January 2020.
Build-A-Bear will also join with special plushies at select Workshops. SEGA is also going to release several children’s books in a partnership with Penguin Publishing.
The initial wave of toys will feature stuffed animals, play-sets and more. They will arrive before the movie’s debut on February 14th, 2020. The live-action feature film will also come along with a second wave of Sonic toys.
Among them we will see more collectibles, apparel, books and more. Action figures should also be on the cards. “We’re thrilled to commemorate this momentous event in Sonic’s history by releasing a special line of merchandise tied to the Sonic the Hedgehog film,” says Ivo Gerscovich, chief brand officer, Sonic the Hedgehog & SVP Sega of America.
The Sonic toy waves will continue in the Spring of 2020, as well. Especially if the movie is successful. Then we will all see even more toy and stuffed animals coming our way.
