Merchandise, Buzzbombers & A Bit More On 9am Entrance Slips

Guys, a plea from us: if you have questions regarding the early bird entry registration PLEASE READ THE FAQ. That’s why it’s there, we’re still dealing with questions regarding “where is my slip” and “what if I didn’t register in time” some of which are actually coming in on the FAQ itself.

Please read it first, because somewhere Picard is triple-facepalming.

In much better news you may or may not have noticed the Event section got an update with various things including the confirmation that Never Mind The Buzzbombers would be returning for a final showdown between Team Dreadknux and Team T-Bird.

I can also confirm that no, there will be no goody bags this year. There will be a couple of little bits for you which we will confirm at a later date but no goody bags exactly. This comes following feedback from SOS 2010 where you guys said to us you’d actually prefer some more limited edition merchandise on sale at the event over smaller freebies.

So on that basis, guess what I can confirm?

We have teamed up with SEGA to make you some kick-ass limited edition Summer Of Sonic branded items for sale at the event!

I can’t tell you exactly what at this moment as we’

re still confirming all the details but certainly multiple-items (I think its fair to say you can expect limited-run SOS branded t-shirts for instance) exuding Sonicness and the sort of coolness that can only come from something born in the nineties.

SEGA will be there with the goods in hand (and seven rings as well I guess) and you’ll be able to find them over as part of Wentos’ Trading Station.  Apparently business was so good for the salesman over the past two years he’s upgrading into full on store there!

We’re talking with SEGA daily to try and pack as much into this event as possible and nail down all manner of surprises, so keep checking in on the website!

    Cool! You guys are working really hard. Wonder if we’ll see the return of the people who were selling the plushes and other rare stuff like last year.

  3. avatar Tru AKA CapnCloudchaser says:

    Oh maaan, I wish I wasn’t saving for a mortgage xD The stuff I bought last year was awesome (Thanks to Ciara and T-Bird for my Chao Plush ^__^) but this year is really gonna blow everything out the water, I can tell!

    Suppose I better go apologise to the hubby in advance >_>

    SWEET! Thank god I’ve got plenty of cash to go nuts with on the day.

  5. avatar Fullmetal Fox says:

    Sweet, I’m gonna get straight off my 8hour bus at 7am and make my way to the centre to be there for opening, I’d hate for all the merch to sell out before I got a look at it.

      Heh, I used to do the same thing Fullmetal Fox!

      If you’re arriving at Victoria coach station, my advice is grab food and drink (Coffee is my personal choice) From Victoria train station, BEFORE the underground :) Gotta give time for the energy to kick in ;D

  7. I have already spent alot of money this year so i’ll see what money I got

  8. avatar KrazyBean says:

    Uhhhhh Yeah Buzzbombers! Woo Buzzbombers is back! Hooray! Buzzbombers /trying to build hype for his own segment.

  11. avatar Simon h says:

    Wrecks factor has been announced in the events section. Good luck to those who are going to sing on the day. Males will have to sing my sweet passion or fly in the freedom. Females will have to sing unknown from me or throw it all away.

  12. avatar Becky says:

    I know that this is random… but I have a question, and its not related to the tickets.

    It’s to do with the art, in the past, I remember that you had a showcase of them on the website. Is that going to happen this year too?

    • Quite possibly, we’re having to concentrate on the event logistics this year and myself and Svend haven’t havd the chance to update the website as we’d’ve liked. However, the hope is we will be able to do something nearer June 25th.

      • avatar Becky says:

        No prob! It is understandable, because of the soar of demand for slips and the information regarding them. Thanks for your help.

  13. avatar Ranger says:

    This is going to be the first time coming to the Summer of Sonic, so can someone tell me, what is Never Mind The Buzzbombers?

  14. My junk page cleared itself but at least I know i got my reservation slip

    • avatar DrEggdan says:

      When you say you actually got the slip are you referring to the confermation email or the actual offical product? i just checked my emails and my junk deleated my confermation email so does this mean it could have blocked me recieving emails from SOS in regards to my signing up for a slip?
