Hello gamers and collectors! I bring you another Funko Pop haul post. I haven’t been collecting much lately because I am trying to do some late spring cleaning and organize my collection. For this post, it’s going to be really short since I only bought one rare figure.
148. Sonic the Werehog (Sonic the Hedgehog series Hot Topic exclusive)
As soon as I saw this on the Hot Topic website, I just had to get him. As a Sonic fan, this was an offer I couldn’t resist. This version of Sonic is him in his Werehog form from the game Sonic Unleashed. Sonic Unleashed is one of those Sonic games that most fans recommend if you want to experience the speed of Sonic and an epic story. This game was made in 2008 and it came out years after titles such as Sonic the Hedgehog (2006), Sonic and the Secret Rings and Sonic Riders. According to Wikipedia, Sonic Unleashed was going to be a sequel to Sonic Adventure 2 and it was titled Sonic World Adventure, but the team at Sega decided to take a different path for this game. You can play this game even today for for the Xbox Series console and use the backwards compatibility feature. So far there is no update for this game for the PlayStation, PC or Switch unless Sega decides to give this the “Ultimate” treatment like Sonic Colors.
What do you think of the Werehog form? I wish this figure has a flock fuzzy texture.
