Via Treasure Hunting Sonic comes news that a new Sonic product from Numskull is on the way just in time for Christmas: a Sonic the Hedgehog Advent calendar! Each day in December, leading up to Christmas, fans will open doors to reveal pieces of a buildable statue featuring classic Sonic riding a snowboard straight out of Sonic the Hedgehog 3‘s Ice Cap Zone. The product is currently up for pre-order on GameStop for $49.99. Will you be building a Sonic this holiday season?
There has been a serious uptick in quality of SEGA products over the past year, and UK company Numskull is one of the offical SEGA licensees to thank for this. In the past month they have released a variety of cool everyday and formal accessories that pay tribute to classic SEGA hardware. Products include keychains, wallets, and cufflinks that feature SEGA Mega Drive, Genesis and Master System designs. They also have notebooks that are in the shape of the Mega Drive, Game Gear, Saturn and Dreamcast. Numskull were nice enough to send us some samples, which we will detail in a soon to come video.
The quality is top notch, and I especially love how the products are both true to the original hardware and stylish enough not to make you look like a little kid. I mean, only a real sophisticated man wears Mega Drive/Genesis controller cufflinks. I took some time actually using these to see how durable they are day to day, and am happy to report that they stand up well to everyday use.
If you live in the UK, you can check out their line of products at the Numskull online shop. As an added bonus, using the promo code SEGABITS10 at checkout will knock 10% off all non-sale items.
If you live in the US, you can find the Genesis controller cufflinks on Amazon.
