A Quick Note About Merch & Goody Bags

Remember what I said about you not getting free things this year?

Well, after I’d publically done this, because it was all set in stone, we had a call with SEGA where they promptly told us they’d gone and changed their minds.

Now I was a mite ticked off about this, especially as I’d been helping to design them and we’d been discussing some verrry snazzy things indeed.  They’d also decided they weren’t going to do multiple t-shirt designs anymore either but just one. Oh, and they were rather likely to just give them to you guys.

Cue eyebrow-raising; they were only doing one t-shirt design and  now they weren’t going to sell them either? Errr, okay.

Then SEGA said what they were actually going to try to do and that was when we got rather excited as it was indeed rather special.

So basically ignore everything I said in that post the other day, consider it Sonic 06′d – it never happened! As for what SEGA will actually bring on the day for you, how much it’ll be for and what else might come with it… er… I guess we’ll have to wait and see!

Besides two can play that game *cracks knuckles* lets see if we can try for one more AAUK miracle, eh?
