Following the Sonic the Hedgehog 30th Anniversary action figure that launched earlier this year, Jakks Pacific has opened up pre-orders for the Sonic the Hedgehog 30th Anniversary Giant Eggman Robot Battle Set. A catapult is involved.
If we had you at "catapult", know that the set allows you to launch Sonic at Dr. Eggman. The giant Eggman robot also features a chest plate that rotates do mimic damage progression, a jetpack with sliding booster flames, launchable hand missiles, and articulated limbs. Pre-orders are live here at Entertainment Earth with a release date set for July. It's priced at $44.99.
