The turbulent production of Paramount's Sonic the Hedgehog movie is well documented. The titular creature had to be completely redesigned after the reaction to the debut trailer, which pushed the film back to 14th February 2020. Of course, the movie is almost upon us now, and the fresh faced Sonic is looking much better, but what has this hiccup meant for merchandise?
Visiting Amazon seems to prove that the changes to Sonic's look came a little too late for the people making toys related to the film. There's some pretty odd merch available for purchase. For example, this Baby Sonic plushie looks closer to his original look than his revised one:
And here's another toy in which Sonic isn't looking too hot. This one allows you to launch the blue blur at high speeds using a ripcord, but just look at the poor creature.
Less strange are two books based on the movie. One is a novelisation, while the other is a Mad Libs book. We said less strange, not completely normal. That godforsaken halloween mask is still up for grabs too, by the way.
