Quite a few people were interested in the pictures from a 'History of Sonic' video somebody sent me a long time ago. I'm not sure how much of this has been seen before, but I captured all the pictures of supposed concepts for Sonic. YES, the quality is poor, but the quality of the actual VHS itself is quite bad... some of the black and white images are hard to make out even on a VCR. Also, I can't give you any details about the pictures, since the show is narrated in Japanese...

They are in the order they are shown on the tape, which might be the order in which they were devised:

IPB Image

This is the first pic it shows... lousy character. I do not approve of THIS design at all.

IPB Image

However, I DO approve of this design. :D

After that, it showed the wolf, bulldog and rabbit designs that we've all seen before. The pictures are slightly clearer than the ones on the CulT, so they might be useful, however.

IPB Image

Some weird puppet clown thing and a wolf/dragon boy with a slingshot. I think the kid is pretty cool!

IPB Image

A wind-up robot... something or other... I don't know what the double-assed baseball bat wielding creature is, and I do not wish to either.

IPB Image

Poor.

IPB Image

This looks like the original tamagotchi... TOWNIE STYLE. Giz us a fag.

IPB Image

This is very feint... it scrolls along 4 pictures of this warrior-type gent, so I presume he changed costumes or something (like Kid Chameleon?).

IPB Image

The image on the bottom left is the 'Mr. Hedgehog' pic that was recently found. The upper left image is of a more 'furry' looking hedgehog. It scrolls out to show both pictures in full... but it's so small that it's hard to make out when it isn't in motion. This image gives you an idea of the body shape, though.

IPB Image

This is the final design (or close to it) that we all know and love...

IPB Image

I'm not sure what this is or if it's been seen before, but it was shown after the concepts. Could that be the first Egg Mobile design, maybe?

That's yer lot. I will capture the whole video when I can (I'm having big problems... any capture program gives an illegal operation to do with 'ole32.dll'. Apparently it might be something to do with the fact my graphics card is a bit knackered and won't do overlays anymore, in which case it'll be sorted when my new card arrives in a couple of days. If it's a different problem and you have any idea how to sort it, let me know...), but to be honest that art was about the most interesting thing on it! Naka and Ohshima babble, and there is the odd bit of interesting footage.

After that on the tape, there is a Sonic 2 promo video (I think) that shows Sonic tormenting two Japanese guys dressed as Mario and Luigi. I wish I could get some pictures of this hilarity, alas...

Er, feel free to delete this topic if it's all crap you've seen before...

Heh, neat. Kinda interesting to see all of the concepts for mascots.

Sieg Heil. May great health bestow itself on our all knowing leader, George Bush

re-pub-li-can (n) - 1) A wealthy advocate of crony capitalism and supporter
of a totalitarian state benefiting the elite. 2) An inbred redneck or member of a
family with a history of inbreeding that typically falls for any false propaganda
claiming gun rights and lower taxes.


I think this suits George Bush better than Hail to the Chief. There's three meanings to the song. PM me if you think you can guess the three meanings. Hint: Two are fairly obvious (to gamers) and the third will take an astounding amount of digging.

This was briefly covered in another topic recently, where the third image, or at least the pose, was then taken on to feature in a final 'official' art piece (that appeared on various merchandise). The below (cropped) image is from the Sega Video Games Illustrations artbook floating about. Seems the second and third poses/images from the above pretty much stuck.

IPB Image

Anyway, nifty stuff Jessica.

It's probably just my imagination, but in that last image (of the first post in this thread I mean), it kind of looks like Eggman is hanging on to Tails in his left arm, doesn't it?

Also the 2nd concept image/pose, is the same as the final official art to the right of the one you were talking about, looks like it was used too. Not sure if you noticed.

That's a red bird.

That kid with the sling shot is kinda cool though.....

EDIT: Actually, it DOES look kind of like Tails.... probably from something later, then.

Jess, you can send the tape to me to get ripped if you wish. I will pay for shipping back to you, of course.

Eh... sorry, I don't have the equipment to copy the video, and I'd rather not send this original out. It's in PAL format anyway...

It may just be me, but that robot looks like something out of MegaMan.

Oh, yea, nice pics. Hope you can fix the problem with your capture card soon.

Mockery of a certain plumber, perhaps?
