Over here in the UK, a yearly tradition is coming along soon. A time for generosity, thanksgiving, charity and a giant yellow bear with a white and red bandage over one eye. Yes – it’s Children in Need time once again, and this time SEGA are helping out this fantastic charity.
SEGA are offering one lucky person a 20th Anniversary Limited Edition figurine. All you need to do to win it needs no art skills or witty one-liners, but to simply win the eBay auction it is on. All you need is an eBay account and a lot of generosity. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime chance to not only nab a very rare statue, but to also help out those in need. We at SW will keep you updated as to how the auction is going, as well as if our local collectors of rare toot are getting involved.
From the eBay page itself:
We’re excited to reveal the 20th Anniversary figurine for Sonic the Hedgehog! These are extremely limited edition, with only 1,000 made in the world. They feature modern Sonic with classic Sonic in the monitor, the 20th Anniversary logo, and a base modelled after Green Hill Zone.This particular figurine was given to a journalist who is donating it for auction in aid of Children in Need.
