SEGA Sonic Boom NYC Event TV Series, TOMY's Toy Line & Video Game Giveaway CLOSED #SonicBoom
For a while now we've been behind the scenes learning about Sonic Boom, the first-ever CG-animated TV Series which premiered on Cartoon Network, Sonic Boom video games for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS and TOMY's Sonic Boom toy line. This has been a very busy year for SEGA and Sonic the Hedgehog!
While we've enjoyed learning about the different products separately, It was during the recent Sonic Boom Event NYC that we had a chance to enjoy everything together along with other Sonic the Hedgehog fans.
During the Sonic Boom Event NYC:
We joined the fans to have a first look at Sticks, the wild jungle badger who joins the team.
Checked out the new toys from TOMY featuring the Sonic Boom characters
Gamed it up playing Sonic Boom™: Rise of Lyric for Wii U™ and Sonic Boom™: Shattered Crystal for Nintendo 3DS™ which released in November 11, 2014 for North America.
Checked out the meet and greet stations to see lead Sonic designer, Takashi Iizuka as well as some of the voice cast for Sonic Boom.
Joined in voting during the costume contest. This part was so fun. Since everyone had a chance to introduce themselves, some people really came out with some one liners that zinged. But there can only be one winner, who really earned it with their costume.
We ended the night with a special live TV show script reading, which was the best. We saw the team in action delivering their lines and working together. Everyone really works well (with lots of laughs) and it was a nice treat to see the people behind the voices.
As you can see the Sonic Boom world is filled with lots to engage and entertain the fans.
The Sonic Boom animated series provides an exciting mix of comedy and action, with each episode beginning with a small character-driven storyline that explodes into an epic tale of protecting the world, battling robot enemies, and more. The series focuses on Sonic and his friends Tails, Knuckles, Amy and newcomer Sticks, their never-ending search for adventure, and their battles with Sonic’s arch-nemesis, Dr. Eggman. The team’s adventures will bring them to locations both familiar and new as they explore and protect an all new Sonic universe!
The TOMY's Sonic Boom toys, will showcase the new character looks, stressing interaction between core characters, and feature new play patterns based on both the games and TV series. The toy line will be fueled by TOMY innovation and energized with speed, lights, sounds, motion-activation, and action-performance and include plush, action figures, RC, role play, vehicles, and novelty.
In Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric exclusively for the Wii U system, Sonic and his friends Tails, Knuckles, and Amy release a powerful snake-like villain named Lyric from an ancient tomb sealed deep within an island. The group must put aside their differences and work together as a team to save the world from Lyric’s evil plan and his army of war mongering robots!

Like many Sonic the Hedgehog fans, the video games are what started it all for me. After learning about and playing the latest new games, I highly recommend both of them. While the graphics and storytelling are amazing, it's the character play that I really enjoyed. You'll really enjoy playing ALL the characters since they have some very cool power ups and abilities.
