A look at the Sonic 25th Anniversary Party Swag Bag

The Sonic 25th Anniversary Party is a mere days away and Aaron Webber along with Matt from Tails Channel have showed what you can expect to get in your very own  Sonic 25th Anniversary Party swag bag. If you attend the Sonic 25th Anniversary Party don’t forget to grab your swag bag, you won’t want to miss the collectibles inside. Can’t attend? You can watch the party via the Sonic the Hedgehog twitch channel

Can’t play the video at work? Don’t worry, hit the jump for a detailed breakdown on what you get.

Sonic the Hedgehog 25th Anniversary bag


What better way to hold all your dank Sonic 25th Anniversary Party swag than a Sonic the Hedgehog 25th Anniversary bag? The bag comes in a dark blue, to represent Sonic’s attitude or something like that? The Sonic 25th Anniversary logo is printed in silver, to represent the 25th Anniversary (25th Anniversaries are silver, bro).

Sonic the Hedgehog 25th Anniversary coin


This was posted around online by Yuji Naka, who recieved one of these coins early. The Sonic the Hedgehog community was foaming of the mouth hoping to get their white mittens on one of these. Guess what? If you attend the Sonic 25th Anniversary Party you will get your hands on one! They are limited to 2,000 copies and each one comes numbered on the back.

The one shown on the video is 0047. Which number will you get?


Sonic the Hedgehog 25th Anniversary USB thumb stick


This is also part of the Sonic 25th Anniversary Party swag pack, a 2gb Sonic the Hedgehog USB thumb drive. What is on the stick? That remains a mystery to all of us, since they said there IS something but won’t tell us till the event. I will assume its PR assets for the announced Sonic the Hedgehog game at the event. Should we bring our laptop and spoil it? Probably not.

Also one of my favorite things about this thumb drive is if you flip it to the back, it has a SEGA Genesis design. Yep, the console that Sonic the Hedgehog premiered on in 1991.

Sonic: Mega Drive #1 variant comic


Did you pick up the first issue of Sonic: Mega Drive #1 when it came out? Well, its going to be given away at the event but not just any version of the comic book. This version is a special variant just for this Sonic 25th Anniversary Event. The artist for the book, Tyson Hesse and Archie comic book writer Adam Stanley will be at the event signing books!

If you are wondering what the difference between the retail and this version is, its basically just a white background while the retail version has a red to yellow gradient background (plus other color changes). 

Sonic 25th Anniversary New Era Hat


What do kids call these things? Caps, hats or snapbacks? Whatever you wanna call it, you can get your topper for free at the Sonic the Hedgehog 25th Anniversary party. As you can see the cap comes in black and silver (or is it white?) and has a sewn in Sonic 25th Anniversary logo. Looks pretty spiffy.

Sonic, Tails and Eggman Plushies


While the video only showed off the Sonic the Hedgehog and Eggman plushies, they did confirm there will be a Tails one as well. But do you get all three? Nope, everyone at the event will get one randomly selected plush doll and you are encourage to trade with other people at the event to get your favorite character. Honestly, if you guys get Eggman and don’t want him, come trade because he looks so damn cute.


That is all, what a swag pack, huh? What are your thoughts on this whole event and do you like that SEGA is now being more ‘fan focused’ instead of revealing these sorts of things at events like E3 (or before it to the media)? Let us know in the comments below.
