Officially cool

North American hedgehog fans will be able to keep their heads warm with this pre-order Sonic hat, but gamers Down Under are heading towards a warmer time of year. What will they get to honour the release of Sonic Colours? Some figurines, that's what.

EB Games Australia lists special editions for both the Wii and DS versions of Sonic Colours, both of which include special figurines in various combinations. Both versions come with an articulated Sonic figurine, with Wii owners getting the Cyan, White and Orange Wisps, while those who plump for the DS can get their hands on Yellow, Red and Blue Wisps.

The special edition is also set to find its way to Europe via as-yet unspecified retailers. Sonic Colours is released in November.
