Check Out the Sonic Figurine You Get for Preordering Boom at GameStop

Articulated joints? The Ancients' Crystal? Sign me up!

Sega has announced preordering Sonic Boom at GameStop will secure you the exclusive figure shown above. Canadian gamers can also grab the preorder bonus exclusively at EB Games.

Two Sonic games are coming out this year, Sonic Boom: Rise of the Lyric and Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal. Featuring Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Amy, and new team member Sticks, the group battle against their new opponent, Lyric.

Sega said both games will feature traditional Sonic elements (speed) alongside exploration, combat, and a tethering mechanic. The company described Sonic Boom as "a new branch of the Sonic universe" that includes a video game, a new CG-animated TV series, plus a range of toys.

Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric will launch November 18 for Wii U, while Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal will launch November 11 for 3DS. Europeans can expect both games to launch November 21, confirmed today by Nintendo's European Twitter account. Check out our preview coverage on both Sonic games for more.

I wish it would have been called Sonic BOOM because Sonic was finally taken behind the shed.

Well, at least we know what age demographic the new Sonic games are being made off. They're so kiddy, especially that terrible voice acting and localization.

I love how it says "Inspired by the video games" as if its some sort of Chinese knockoff

Daily Gamestop article. Yay.

And that figurine looks like something you would get out of a cracker. A cheap cracker.

I was under the impression it'd be nice, but no, that looks like a cheap $10 Wal Mart product.

Yeah, not seeing this really shoddy looking figure worth a pre-order for a Sonic game.

@HonorOfGod Well, this game does look like crap, so it's only appropriate that Sonic is wearing a turd.

@immortality20 Were you expecting something that's free to be the same quality as a high-end figurine?
