Toy Island is an American toy company founded in 1992.[1] From 2000 to 2006, they produced a number of Sonic the Hedgehog Toys, most of them being based off of Sonic Adventure and Sonic X.

Sonic Adventure (2000)

Shortly after ReSaurus, Toy Island released their own line of Sonic Adventure action figures.

Action Figures

This basic 5-inch series of action figures is the main focus of the Toy Island line. These figures were not received quite as well as the ReSaurus figures, due to Sonic and Knuckles having heads that were a little strange in shape. Tails' body was very large and chubby in comparison to the other characters, and his expression was considered by many consumers to be "goofy." This series did, however, release well-received sculpts of Big the Cat and Robotnik. These figures came with accessories such as Chaos Emeralds, real metal Rings and many of the figures came with miniature sidekicks, such as Tails, who came with a Chao, Dr. Robotnik had Kiki, and Big the Cat had Froggy and a fishing pole.

Collectible Talking Action Figures

Toy Island released three 10-inch talking figures which were similar in sculpt to the 5-inch figures, but were not quite as misshapen. They each could speak two lines extracted from the Sonic Adventure video game.

Bendable Action Figures

Toy Island also released a set of 3-inch bendy figures. These were available in a four-pack of Sonic, Tails, Knuckles and Amy Rose. A second four-pack of Sonic, Dr. Robotnik, E-102 Gamma and Big the Cat was advertised, but never released. Dr. Robotnik and Big the Cat were released individually and are very rare.

Sonic X (2004-2006)

After Sonic X made its debut in the US, Toy Island began releasing action figures based on the series. Many of their figures were re-releases from their Sonic Adventure series, just in new Sonic X packages. Many new sculpts were also released.

Re-released figures

After Sonic X hit US shores, Toy Island re-released their Sonic Adventure figures in new Sonic X packages. The sculpts were altered—Sonic and Knuckles' heads were fixed—and many of the accessories were discontinued—no more Kiki or Chao. Dr. Robotnik was labeled as "Dr. Eggman" this time around, however, most of Big the Cat's accessories remained.

Re-released Figures with Keychains

The 5-inch Sonic Adventure figures were re-released this time with each character coming with a small key chain of themselves, except Dr. Eggman who came with Cheese. Big the Cat no longer came with Froggy.

Megabot Series 1

ToyIsland SonicX RBX-D05

The completed RBX-D05 figure

The Sonic X Megabot series is a set of six figures, five of which each come with a piece of the a robot's body. When the five figures are collected, they can assemble the pieces and have a completed Megabot figure. RBX-D05 was the name advertised for the Megabot figure and was scheduled to appear in Sonic X, but didn't make the final cut and only appeared in the original pilot. The sixth figure in this series is a second Sonic in a different pose, which comes with a gunner bot and a big letter "X" from the show's logo.

The figures of the line were later re-released, having updated and improved sculpts. Eventually, they replaced Amy with yet another Sonic, this time he didn't have a new pose but came with Amy's part. This could be due to the incorrect color of her arms on both releases.

Metal Force

Four Metal Force figures were released. These were repaints of the Space Fighters figures, but without the helmets.

Super Posers

Two 7-inch figures were released each having 25 points of articulation. However, their sculpts were not very accurate

Note:

  • These Figures were re-released by Jazwares with improved paint jobs on their eyes.
  • Tails and Knuckles Super Posers were planned for this line. Prototype pictures of all 4 characters were released, but only Sonic and Shadow made it to final production. Jazwares has since released their own original sculpt of Super Poser Knuckles and Tails.

10-inch Figures

The 10-inch Sonic Adventure talking figures were re-released in Sonic X packages. The three figures no longer talked, but still had the buttons on their feet which now made sound effects for Sonic, but did nothing for Knuckles and Tails.

Bendable Figures

The Sonic Adventure 3-inch bendy figures were re-released in Sonic X packages. Many of these figures came with T-shirts to match their characters. One new figure was added, being Shadow. They were also available in five-packs. The first five pack contained Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Amy Rose and a Gold Sonic. The second five-pack contained Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Amy and Shadow. Gold Sonic was only available in the five-pack and not individually, and is just a repaint and not Super Sonic.

Sonic 15th Anniversary statue

In 2006 Toy Island produced a statue to commemorate Sonic's 15th anniversary. The statue was 7 inches in height, made of resin and limited edition as only 2500 were made.[2] It came with a certificate of authenticity that included which number of 2500 it was too.
