The kerfuffle surrounding the Sonic movie has quieted to a dull roar of late, with only a brief mistake from the official Sonic movie Twitter account that had fans wondering if the release date would again move making the most noise.
There are other movie matters to consider, however. As with most other Sonic initiatives, there will be tie-in merchandise. As the movie Sonic will get an overhaul, it can be assumed whatever has movie Sonic in it will meet the same fate. And that’s what made fans took notice of this Tweet from Russian account Sonic and All Characters:
Вот так бы могли выглядеть игрушки-топперы с Соником из фильма, которые обычно продаются в кинотеатрах. Скорее всего, они так и не увидят свет в связи с решением изменить дизайн Соника в фильме.#SonicMovie #Sonic #SonicTheHedgehog pic.twitter.com/TUahdO7AuA

The account did not cite where the above image is from, but it speculates that these prototypes will likely not see the light of day due to Sonic’s pending redesign. Unclear is whether this tie-in merchandise, in any form, will still see store shelves.
