More All-Stars Racing Store Display Paraphenalia

Having educated the community into what a “wobbler” is, something I’ll be going back to in a following post, I’m now going to show you some more Sonic & All-Stars Racing items you’ve not neccessarily seen before.

First up is the All-Stars Racing UK promotional poster, SEGA are giving one of these away on Friday as part of their Free Stuff Friday Twitter shenanagins, I don’t think I’m on @SEGA this week for it but I suppose I might be.

Note the bottom features the Alton Towers and Sonic Spinball ride logos!

Now kiddies do you know what this is? Yes its a standee that you see in store, these combined with those that have games in them are known by the technical term FSDU or “fuzzdoo” short for Front of Store Display Unit.

No doubt T-Bird etc will be pestering game shops for these so you now know what to look for at least.

  1. Yay for SEGA Marketing lesson! Fuzzdoo is a brilliant acronym.

    • Actually thats more of a general retail lesson from someone who used to work in there, you know the magnetic tags that are stuck on products that set off the senoramics (the front of store scan gate things)? Those are affectionately known as “rattlers”.

  2. … The GameStop I’m working in isn’t getting these at all…. it’s not fair 🙁

  3. I’m obsessed with acronyms. Mainly because my boss pronounces all the abbreviated report names as words. We have one called ‘conc_adj’ which he literally pronounces ‘Conk Adge’.
