General Sonic / Updating baths

Here is my Sonic stuff, other than games. A few key chains have broken in the past, as they get abused on the trains every day. I regret selling off my official Sonic the Hedgehog Official Yearbook of 1991/92, as I had fond memories of it as a kid. Maybe I'll rebuy that.

As you can see, I'm only interested in the classic Sonic stuff. Sonic died with everything after the Dreamcast era. I get why they changed the design to fit with the times, but the too cool for school aesthetics along with the annoying voice acting and, frankly, dumb story lines turned me off Sonic for quite a while, with only Sonic Unleashed and Sonic and the Sacred Rings being the redeeming titles. It wasn't until Sonic Mania that I was finally properly on board with the franchise again after about a decade of alienation. But I digress, and no offense to anyone who loves those later titles.

Oh, yeah, and I do actually use most of this stuff. I work as a kids teacher in Japan, and I'm well known among my students as a Sonic fan. Kids find me more relatable for having a liking for a character as much as they like their Pokemon, Kirby, Kimitsu no Yaiba, Doraemon, etc.
I have more pairs of Sonic socks too. But can't be bothered to find them to take photos. Not like anyone is desperate to see them.
And, yeah, I find it hard to justify spending money on Sonic stuff unless I actually use it for something. I am tempted to buy one of those Sonic toy sets, as I always wanted a Sonic figurine when I was a kid, so buying one now would be like finally fulfilling a childhood dream. But 6500 - 8500 yen for just a bit of plastic is just a bit too much, especially as my son has just been born.

Anyway, that's enough indulging I guess. Would love if anyone else out here has Sonic memorabilia and has stories to tell for with them.

Also, can't find my rail card holder, but it's basically this one:

Double post. Please delete if possible.

Heh, I doubt I'd be on any charts.

Don't get me wrong, I love the idea of speed running. I think it's incredible that people out there can get so much enjoyment and monies worth out of playing just a single game over and over (mind you, I can go playing little other than Dark Souls for quite a while).

But, for me, speed running means not stopping to smell the roses. I love Sonic half for the gameplay, but also to just inhale in the atmosphere. The visuals and the music. Which is why I love Sonic CD so much. It has / had the best visuals of any Sonic game back in the day, especially considering the more abstract design of the locations and backgrounds, only really matched by Sonic 1 MD. Then there's the music. Speed running means not having the time to enjoy the fecking amazing music on offer in a Sonic game.

I tried speed running Klonoa about a year back. But, having just become a father, and being married with a full time job as a children's teacher, I just don't have the time or energy to indulge in speed running.

Anyways, nice to meet you Spaniel. Definitely feel free to indulge me in Sonic CD related talk. That game is very close to my heart. I was one of the few lucky people to own it when it first came out on Mega CD, what, 1993/1994 was it now?

What's good! I see you are a fellow Sonic CD enjoyer so I already know we're going to get along :P

Always wholesome to hear from longtime classic fans. Hope you enjoy the maps and they're of some use to you. Nothing wrong with casual running, hope to see you on the Sonic CD charts, maybe you'll give me a run for my old money :P

Some of his bosses in the Advance games were pretty mental, I mean Egg Frog in Adv2 could reverse gravity, and Egg Pinball in Adv3 you had to play pinball against the fucker...
I agree with the Rush games having wicked bosses though
few keychains, a rail card holder
I'd be curious to see these if you're able to take a pic :P

I did have a Tails plushie back in the day that I got from one of those claw grabber machines, and also a Sonic t-shirt, those were the days...

Any alcohol-free stuff :^) enjoyed Finnish student life and alcohol from 2015-2020, then decided to quit. Right decision for me :p

Been a Sonic fan since I got the first title on the Master System, I guess sometime in 1991. Favourite Sonic game by a mile is Sonic CD, and getting to be able to play it on the Switch, despite Sonic Origin's drawbacks, has been an absolute blessing!

Will be using this site for its maps. Definitely don't have the skills and time to do speed running, but I like to do, I don't know how you'd call it, maybe 'breeze running', where you've memorised everything, but you're still semi-taking your time.
