First off, OMG. I have been hoping for Sonic ornaments for years. I literally screamed out loud when I saw these in the 2021 lineup. I feel like I'll need doubles of these just so I can have a set displayed in my house all the time... "Gotta go fast to hang this fun Sonic and Tails Christmas tree ornament on your tree!
