New official chao figures and plushes coming in 2018

Post by Chao Professor » Sun Dec 17, 2017 1:33 am

You heard me. Finally, Tomy is blessing us with some new chao merchandise next year. Their 2018 catalogue has shown off some pretty great things (classic super Sonic doll, Vector plush, new comic pack figures) but holy heck, this is definitely the best part imo.

First up are these interesting solid blue chao figures, expected in April. These chao come in a 3 pack with Sonic, Tails and Knuckles. And they're to scale! It's a little strange that they're missing their yellow highlights, but I can only assume this is due to them being in the prototype stage (A Shadow doll shown in the catalogue completely lacks any shoe detail for the same reason) I really love their cute expressions, and I can't wait to get ahold of these!

Next, we have this amazing 8 inch neutral chao plush! Looks way nicer than the GE plush in my opinion, and it's twice the size! I really love the expression here. It's not coming on too strong, and looks really cute. I can't wait to own this cutie! Expect him in March.

And finally...

oh my goodness.
You're not seeing things. This incredible dark chao plush will be available to purchase in the Fall of 2018! And just look at it! Who could've seen this coming?! I am so excited to add this guy to my collection! Part of me is hoping a hero chao might be released too, but honestly, what more could I ask for here? It's been so long since we've had any official chao merch (minus that hot topic Shadow chao, which I still haven't gotten around to buying) Believe me, I will be wasting no time buying this plush the second it's out. And you shouldn't either. A plush like this will become extremely valuable in the future, so make sure you don't miss out!

I know this probably belongs in the merch thread, but it's so exciting to receive all this news at once, I felt it deserved its own thread. Seriously, this news will excite any chao fan. I'm so glad chao haven't been buried :chaohappy:

This is great news.

Really want that neutral chao plush before it fades into the abyss of eBay some number of years later.

^Apparently. Let's take a look at the 2018 Tomy catalog, shall we?

And oh dear...

Well, that's an exploitable image if I ever saw one. There's a use for that oddly proportioned Amy as well, but I don't know what.

I'm hoping that Vector's only looking strange both because it's a prototype and the angle of the picture.

...Also Modern Vector?

Lest we never forget the days of yore, where Vector was extremely unsettling to look at.

Someone please tell me these will be available for pre-order on Amazon and that they'll be posting Amazon links as soon as pre-orders go live.

It probably looks better in profile. Besides I think the funny proportions are charming.
