I feel so bad for kids who grew up after Sonic the Hedgehog was a thing. While the 16-bit games don't seem like much today, the games' breakneck speed was mind-blowing at the time, making Super Mario look like he was limping through stages at a snail's pace. The Blue Blur is celebrating his 25th anniversary this year and Kidrobot have just announced that they're helping to celebrate with a series of Sonic the Hedgehog products. There are no details at the moment, but a blindbox series and some medium or large sized figures seem like a sure bet and some plushies wouldn't sound out of the question. And with Kidrobot's return to the apparel world, we might get a few t-shirts, too. The big question is whether the designs will stay very close to the original character illustrations or if Kidrobot will put their own twist on them!
