The Sonic the Hedgehog movie hits theaters on February 14, but its journey there hasn't been easy. The reaction to the original, more "lifelike" CGI version of the hedgehog was met with widespread disdain, so the studio decided to redo the character to make him look more like his inspiration. The redesign was a hit, though it did push back the movie's release date (the studio behind the redesign also closed shortly after).

Sonic has been a household name since the early '90s, so there was already an endless supply of toys, plushes, and random doodads available for purchase. Nevertheless, the Sonic movie gives Sega another opportunity to push Sonic merchandise on fans both old and new. Seeing as we're only about a month away from Sonic's theatrical debut, you can bet movie merch is starting to pop up in stores. We have to say: The merch revealed thus far is...strange.
