Sonic Easter Series - AMY ROSE!

Sonic the Hedgehog 2.5" Series (Easter Wave) - Amy -  Jakks Pacific 2024

I think we can officially call the Holiday releases of the Jakks Pacific Sonic the Hedgehog figures a trend now. A surprise Christmas assortment showed up at Target back in December and sent me on a wild hunt for weeks until I found the sole female character, Classic Amy Rose in a red and white deco. There had been Advent Calendars released in 2022 and 2023 from Jakks that featured these figures (notable because some characters have unique accessories, like Tails' reindeer antlers), but these single-pack releases sported different decos. Soon after there were leaked listings of an Easter assortment, and I was excited as the prospect of this being a new seasonal trend to look forward to. This Easter deco of Amy Rose is easily the least "Eastery" of the group. The maroon and pink combo looks good, but doesn't make me think about Easter or Spring at all. I expected her to be decked out in pastels with an Easter egg deco or something.  Let's check out Amy below. Happy Easter to those who celebrate it!

Here is the rest of the Easter Assortment. I'm tempted to buy a Sonic or Tails to give Amy their bunny ears.  When they eventually make a 2.5" Cream the Rabbit, I bet they'll include her instead just to make use of the bunny theme. And on that note, if they do a Halloween assortment, it would be cool to get a black and orange Rouge the Bat.

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here is Christmas Amy, Easter Amy, and Classic Amy.
