Gamestop Sonic Boom Toy T22511 Render Copy

Any Sonic fans out there might be interested in this; if you pre-order either Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric for the Wii U or Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal for the 3DS you can get your mitts on an exclusive figurine of Sonic holding the Ancients' Crystal.

The model itself looks fairly nicely done, Sonic has articulated arms and legs which makes a nice change for Sonic figures and the paintwork isn't too bad, especially considering the item won't actually cost you anything! It's rather refreshing to see a physical bonus for pre-ordering as so many publishers simply offer in-game bonuses.

This model will only be available with a pre-order of either game as there are no current plans to release it for sale by itself. The offer is exclusive to GameStop in the US and EB Games in Canada, with no hint yet of a similar offer in any other territories.

Are you seduced by this sizzling Sonic sensation? Have you been convinced to pre-order in to get this metaphorically delicious bonus?
