Import Guide: Want the Sonic Colors Ultimate 30th Anniversary Pack or DX Pack? Here’s how to import!
Back in 2001, SEGA announced that copies of Sonic Adventure 2 would be bundled with a Birthday Pack celebrating the 10th anniversary of Sonic the Hedgehog. Available worldwide, the pack was only available in limited supplies in stores for two days. I myself recall pre-ordering Sonic Adventure 2 from FuncoLand, my first ever pre-order, with the idea that it would secure me a Birthday Pack. Turns out, the store never set packs aside for pre-orders and they were all given out on a first come, first served basis. Arriving after school, I was crushed to learn there wasn’t one set aside for me which led to me ordering a pack online from, I believe, NCSX or SEGA-Parts.com. The pack contained a coin sporting the 10th anniversary logo, a gold music CD featuring select tracks from the franchise and a small booklet containing a real world timeline of notable Sonic events as well as some really bizarre revelations concerning Sonic’s origins.
