It seems that Sonic the hedgehog 2 toys have poured into McDonald’s Happy Meals. The official website for Happy Meals here in the United States has been updated with information about the toys ahead of the film’s release on April 8. Previously, the toy was available internationally, which makes sense since the film was previously released internationally. The official website has images of seven different toys, but if you know where to look, an eighth is hidden.
Warning: There are possible spoilers for this Sonic the hedgehog 2 below.
If you just look at the pictures of the toys on the Happy Meal site, there are seven of them: two Sonics, two Tails, two Knuckles, and a Robotnik. However, if you click on the individual images, a short video shows them in action. At the time of writing, a video pops up as expected when you click on the first Tails toy in the list, but for an unexpected toy: Super Sonic. Which, given that they’re for the sequel, gives an idea of what to expect.
“After settling in Green Hills, Sonic is eager to prove that he has what it takes to be a true hero,” according to the synopsis of Sonic the hedgehog 2 is reading. His test comes when Dr. Robotnik returns, this time with a new partner, Knuckles, in search of an emerald that has the power to destroy civilizations. Sonic teams up with his own sidekick, Tails, and together they embark on a globe. – trotting journey to find the emerald before it falls into the wrong hands.”
