After the recent announcement that First 4 Figures (F4F) was launching a new series of SEGA All-Star statuettes, the company teased Ryo Hazuki as its first figure. F4F then asked fans to vote for their favourite SEGA characters on its forums – this wasn’t a promise, but it did allude to the idea that the winner of the vote would be the next character to be released.
Well, now the company has teased its next release, but it might not be what people thought.
As you can see from the above video, the next statuette will be Shadow the Hedgehog. Now, I know that alot of gamers and some SEGA fans might not be too keen on this release – however, I also know that within the Sonic community, Shadow is a very popular character. So there are definitely going to be a lot of people excited about the news.
No information on the release of the Shadow statuette just yet, but F4F started pre-orders for Ryo soon after the teaser went out, which is due for release from Q4, so I would expect Shadow to be released around the same time.[Source: Sonic Stadium, via Radio SEGA]
