Actually come to think about it, Winnie the Pooh actually had a proto-Julian:

Just reminding everyone that Julian Robotnik is back voicing a silly old bear on Thursday. Sadly Princess Sally is not back as Kanga.

Chess is centuries old yet it is still a fun game. It doesn't matter how old a game is as long as the game itself is fun and challenging.

@  Uncle Ben : (13 August 2018 - 08:56 PM)

Game is 20 years old...

@  LogiTeeka : (12 August 2018 - 02:46 PM)

Eh. 64 feels dated and kinda boring to me.

@  Ishapar : (10 August 2018 - 03:01 AM)

I played Odyssey a little with my friends, but I became bored with it right away. Mario 64 and Paper Mario are the only Mario games I can come back and play over and over to have fun.

@  Sunnyfruit : (09 August 2018 - 12:44 PM)

I have a Switch but Odyssey feels too much of a collectathon to me. I agree that the game looks gorgeous though.

@  GamemasterAn... : (08 August 2018 - 07:22 AM)

No reference to Captain N, Sakurai? I am disappoint...

@  Uncle Ben : (08 August 2018 - 06:25 AM)

Just announced for Smash Ultimate: Simon Belmont, Ritchie Belmont, Dark Samus, Chrom, and King K.Rool

@  Uncle Ben : (07 August 2018 - 08:30 PM)

Play Odyssey if you can, it's great

@  Sunnyfruit : (07 August 2018 - 05:49 AM)

Mario died with SMW to me, and even there he was just a boring second. Kirby's the dreaded challenger

@  Ishapar : (07 August 2018 - 03:57 AM)

Sonic fanbase talking positively about the rival mascot. Yeah, I think Sonic is really tapping his foot on this one...

@  RedAuthar : (05 August 2018 - 08:13 PM)

But You should totally make a thread about doing a SatAM styled Mario series.

@  RedAuthar : (05 August 2018 - 08:11 PM)

SatAM was taking a, at the time, rather storyless project that was pretty light hearted in appearance to something a bit more storydriven and darker. Nintendo's would be Advance Wars Days of Ruin compared to the lighthearted Advance Wars series. Metroid doesn't fit as it was already dark.
I mean Samus has lights on her armor for a reason.

@  Quickster : (05 August 2018 - 07:51 AM)

I never saw that movie (thank goodness). I AM, however, hyped for the upcoming Mario movie.

@  GamemasterAn... : (05 August 2018 - 06:38 AM)

Sadly, I think one of the only good things about that movie was Bob Hoskin's portrayal of Mario.

@  Clocktopus : (02 August 2018 - 11:54 AM)

good point

@  LogiTeeka : (01 August 2018 - 10:38 PM)

I'd argue that the SatAM equivalent to Mario was the infamous live-action movie. It's the same general premise, but darker and a generally different interpretation of the source material.

@  Sunnyfruit : (01 August 2018 - 02:20 AM)

Now of course it's entirely different on the other themes.

@  Sunnyfruit : (01 August 2018 - 02:16 AM)

As for a Nintendo equivalent of SatAM, I'd be tempted to say Metroid, since it shares similar themes in its direction: morally gray technology, adventuring in an oppressive techbase, feeling of being alien and outnumbered yet heroic.

Well, that's sad.  And I hate to say this: Sonally is gone. Because Sally has never appear in the mainstream games (Except for Sonic Spinball), she's gone in the comics (Don't know if she'll appear in the IDW Comics), and the Sonamy are now the majority. Sad, but true.

"How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end, it’s only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines it will shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you. That meant something, even if you were too small to understand why. But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand. I know now. Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back, only they didn’t. They kept going, because they were holding on to something."

Not unless the fandom dies off completely. Honestly, I think we should count ourselves lucky that we had her for so very long, despite how little it might've been.

 

And I think one of those blessings is the fact that Ian Flynn loves the character. I mean, every writer before him either despised Sally or portrayed her as an unlikable character. Ian not only tried redeeming the character in the eyes of the fanbase but he also fought for her continued survival in the Reboot. If she and the other cast members have a chance of returning to the franchise (and there just might be one), Ian's probably the one guy who could make that happen.

You may as well build a new one from scratch. It's completely possible to replicate with the photos to work with and the size scale. Just need someone willing to tackle the project. Hell, could even be a kickstarter campaign. Donate x amount of dollars and with perks receive miniature SonSally statue with a t shirt. Statue could be showcased at cons to take photos with.

I can't help but think that if there was a sizable Sally fanbase in Japan, SEGA would care. The Japanese love Silver and that made him survive 06 even though the game is bashed to hell in the West.

Honestly, Silver wasn't that bad of a character, he just got stuck with being attached to arguably the worst game in the Franchise in '06.

 

 

 

Well, that's sad.  And I hate to say this: Sonally is gone. Because Sally has never appear in the mainstream games (Except for Sonic Spinball), she's gone in the comics (Don't know if she'll appear in the IDW Comics), and the Sonamy are now the majority. Sad, but true.

Yeah, as much as i'm not a fan of Ian, he does care about the character. He did everything he could to keep Sally post reboot (and probably did everything he could to try to keep the door open in IDW) and make her likable to the fans, though some actions that he did I do not agree with.

Sal and the other FF may die down from the public mainstream, but the characters and stories can still survive just as older legends from various other cultures have survived over the centuries.  Fandom can play a big part in preserving these characters, but only if the fandom actively portrays these characters into their own works.  If this guy is able to restore the statues or make replicas of them, that is one way of the characters to still survive in the memory of the Western world. 

 

Honestly, I am planning my own way to help preserve these characters through another avenue, but any activity to preserve them is a plus.


Before honor comes humility.

 

The Most High God created this world we live in, and He created man in His image for Himself.  Whether we like it or not doesn't change the truth nor does it change the consequences.

Long story short: the current owner has been convinced to part with the statues.  However, while he won't accept cash for the statues, he will accept Australian automotive memorabilia / antiques from the 1950's and 1960's.  So now the the guy looking to restore these SEGA World statues needs to find someone with the special, specific things this collector is looking for.
