Sonic x Sanrio merchandise shown off at San Diego Comic Con | Nintendo Wire

San Diego Comic Con is currently well under way, and as a result there’s a constant barrage of new merchandise being announced and shown off. One of the cutest cross-overs is finally expanding over at the Sanrio booth, where several Sonic the Hedgehog x Sanrio products are on show.

Hello Kitty has dressed as Sonic once before, way back in 2012. More products were in the works back then but they never came to fruition, but now the collaboration seems to be back in full force.

First up is a selection of plushes,where several Sanrio icons are dressed up as classic Sonic characters. Even the Amy cosplay is decidedly retro, borrowing her Sonic CD outfit.

Comic Con attendees can also grab a limited edition Golden Sonic x Hello Kitty, which, for some reason, isn’t called Super Sonic. There are only 1000, but the release will be staggered across several days at the convention.

Those at Comic Con can also pick up a few other limited edition items. These include a Sonic x Sanrio themed skate deck, pin set and a silver pin.

Always excited to see something a little bit different, Tom is ready to report on games of all shapes and sizes, whether they be wonderful or weird (or, better yet, both.) Rest assured, if Nintendo ever announces Elite Beat Agents 2, he’ll be there.

    Limited edition items are usually staggered throughout the convention (as in each day a part of the full LE run is available). That said if anyone wants to be able to snag one there (and not eBay), you’ll have to line up early in hopes of getting a chance to purchase from Day X’s allotment.

    You’re welcome! 😀 On the rare occasion a booth may not do this, but the last time I saw that happen at SDCC specifically was back in 2009 (and no limits, ugh, that was fun – so much grief was given by many disappointed fans). Sanrio has been pretty good about their merchandise there though (and spreading it around at different locations too).
