JAKKS Pacific and Disguise announced a new line of toys and costumes launching in spring 2022 in celebration of Paramount Pictures’ feature film, “Sonic the Hedgehog 2.” The new line of merchandise from JAKKS is set to include action figures, playsets, vehicles, plush toys and other collectibles in time for the film’s release on April 8. Disguise, the costume division of JAKKS Pacific, will also be designing and manufacturing costumes and accessories inspired by characters from “Sonic the Hedgehog 2,” which will be available to fans this fall.  

“JAKKS Pacific is proud to celebrate the release of the new feature film ‘Sonic the Hedgehog 2’ with an all-new line of memorabilia commemorating the Blue Blur’s next great adventure,” says Craig Drobis, senior vice president, marketing, JAKKS Pacific. “With new waves of collectible action figures, cool new playsets, multiple sizes of plush toys, and an all-new radio-controlled Sonic Speed RC, there is something for every Sonic fan and collector.”  

Through the collaboration, Sonic and JAKKS will launch the following new merchandise items:

  • Sonic Speed RC Set - The new Sonic Speed RC lets fans recreate the action from “Sonic the Hedgehog 2.” This set includes a ring-shaped controller for forward motion, turns and spinning action. The 6-inch scale articulated Sonic figure is removable.  

  • Tornado Biplane Playset (Walmart Exclusive) - Available only at Walmart is the Tornado Biplane playset with Sonic and Tails figures. Tails can sit inside to pilot the Tornado, and Sonic can ride on the wings as seen in the movie. It also includes a 2.5-inch Sonic figure and an exclusive Tails figure.
