Back in 2019, SEGA signed a multi-year partnership deal with Jakks Pacific to create their merchandise. You may remember the line of awesome Sonic the Hedgehog Movie merchandise, including the Talking Sonic Plush, Sonic Baby Plush and Spin Dash Sonic playset.
This week, SEGA and Jakks Pacific announced a new line of merchandise heading your way. This time, it’s for Sonic the Hedgehog 2! Check out their official announcement:
“Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is sure to be a runaway hit in 2022. Given the success of the first movie and performance of our current Sonic the Hedgehog product line, we are excited to continue to develop toys that follow along with Sonic’s next great movie adventure,” said Craig Drobis, Senior Vice President of Marketing at JAKKS Pacific, Inc. “JAKKS brings decades of innovative product development experience to the table and will continue to bring to life these iconic characters in a wide variety of new and unique ways for kids and fans alike.
We’ve seen such a great response from fans to the Sonic the Hedgehog products created by JAKKS Pacific, and we’re thrilled to continue working with them to celebrate Sonic the Hedgehog 2,” said Alex Gomez, Licensing Director at SEGA of America. “We hope that fans of the Blue Blur will see the collection as a testament of our appreciation and create memorable Sonic experiences with the products for years to come.”SEGA
