Hm... a Mickey Mouse horror could work about kids being trapped in an abandoned theme park. The theme park was closed down due to a lawsuit by Disney (or "The big cheese" to avoid lawsuit from the fictional lawsuit) and it turns out the theme park is home to a serial killer wearing a mickey mouse costume and does the voice.

Theme park is sometimes associated to Disneyland, so I can see Disney would still unhappy about this, lol.

I probably already mentioned this a few pages back on this thread but I was thinking what if Sonic Team made a electronic toy to rival the Lego Mario toys. But given Lego is more for blocks and which fit Mario's style I was thinking they could promote with HotWheels given HotWheels like making race tracks with loops and such just like zones.
Dunno why those ugly coloured cars when they could of used the cars from Team Sonic Racing but oh well.

May be because this was designed in Japan and Team Sonic Racing didn't sell well there so they didn't use the design from there?
Or then again may be they just give the license to HotWheels and let HotWheels do whatever they like.

Team Sonic Racing may not had did well but the cars are still popular and better looking than these ugly cars.

Or they could of at least designed a toy that looks like Sonic while he's running... and not look like he was ran over.


Don't believe me? Check out Jakks Pacific Die-cast car toys.

While these Jakk Pacific toys are not made by HotWheels nor made from the usual metals HotWheel cars are made from, the plastic is still sturdy and they still fit perfectly on official Hotwheels tracks means you can play with them with your HotWheels sets. And IMHO the fact these toys tried to be as accurate to the cars from Team Sonic racing look much more appeal than HotWheels cars that simply have bare resemblence to characters heads.

Price is the issue, the more complex the design, the more expensive they were.
I don't know in western, but in Asia and Japan HotWheels usually are cheap and could be found in mini market or local store, or even on the road.



Jakk Pacific toys are expensive here, sold only in toys store, we won't find them in mini market or local store.

Ouch... I guess buying off eBay isn't an option? 'cus while I am not a HotWheels collector, I'd rather substitute with Jakk's toys over those ugly Sonic cars.

Shipping cost plus taxes usually cost more than the toys alone so it's still an expensive choice.
And usually it takes 1-2 month to reach here.
That's why cheap unofficial botleg toys from China like this exist here :

Ugh, surprising Bootleg manufacturing is still legal.

But then again so is paid commission on fan art which Sega seems to turn a blind eye to over marketing fan games.

It's illegal of course, but SEGA doesn't have office here so they tend to ignore it.
Nintendo suffered a lot more here back then against Spica.

They were the largest illegal famiclones force in Indonesia and Australia.
They even had local offices in Indonesia and even gave a warranty for their illegal consoles.

Huh does the Spica console works?

It reminds me of peoples changed stance on piracy and how piracy could be a positive and contributing factor in preserving and making accessible entertainment and media that the owners cannot or will not distribute anymore.
