Sonic the Hedgehog - 2.5" Series Wave 10 -  Rouge the Bat - Jakks Pacific 2022

In my experience, Rouge the Bat has always been one of the more obscure Sonic characters. As a non-gamer who instead monitors merchandise like a superfan, I've been aware of her since shortly after her first toy in 2005 (she debuted in Sonic Adventure 2, 2001). As the second Sonic female to be immortalized in plastic, and as one of my favorite animals, I have often proclaimed her as my favorite. But casual fans (and even some frequent players) of the Sonic franchise have looked at me blankly when I speak of her. But I just saw images of new product for the 2022 Sonic Prime show on Netflix and it looks like Rouge is a core character. Granted, her initial toys have her in a black bodysuit with a beret (and perhaps going by the name Rebel Rouge), it still looks like she will be decently featured in the toy aisles for the next year or so. This 2.5" classic Rouge essentially seems like a scaled-down version of her 2022 version (with new hands), but I think she's great. Let's check her out below!

Rouge's wings are hinged like a butterfly and can be moved backwards.

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here is Rouge with her 4" version from Jakks and her Toy Island figure.

And here she is with the only other 2.5" Sonic lady (at the time of this photoshoot), Classic Amy Rose
The 2.5" Modern Amy figure is technically released, but I have yet to find her.

And with the recent Jakks Birdo figure from the Nintendo line.
