Retro Spotlight: The Sonic Mania LEGO Project


About a year ago, we posted a LEGO themed Sonic Mania project from community member toaster. The goal for any project posted to LEGO’s Ideas site is to reach 10,000 signatures, at which times, the project will be reviewed and determined if the licenses can be obtained and if the project will move forward in any official capacity. Fast forward to today, where the project is creeping ever so close to that goal, having been sign almost 9,000 in just a hair under a year! We spoke with toaster at length about the project, including its inception, inspiration, and the reception so far. Hit the jump to hear what she had to say!

Something For The Weekend: Sweet Dream – A Short Film

Here it is again, folks – after skipping out last week (how irresponsible of me!), I return again with a project that I think deserves a bit of time in the spotlight of our front page.

This short film was animated by Sonicpox along with several other names within the community, all of which can be seen in the credits at the end of the piece. It’s particularly well-done for something made in SFM and the first part of it really gives a more ‘real’ sense of how Sonic must have felt floating in space after the destruction of the Death Egg at the end of Sonic 2. It is of course a fully-realised, animated version of the pre-credits ending sequence from that game and while similar things have been done before, this is done extremely well and really holds up.

Hell, even the official Sonic YouTube account decided to comment on it! (I wonder who could have been responsible for that…)

I know it’s not a remix album or something along those lines, but I felt that in keeping with the promotion of creative talent in these collumns, this was deserving of a mention. As usual, enjoy your weekend whatever you’re doing and I don’t know, maybe come hang out in IRC or something.
