ROBOTNIK'S TOY CHEST!
Since the term 'off-model' (once used as a weapon only
in professional circles) has trickled into fandom, their own standards
and drawings have become much less imaginative. I myself fully and joyfully
subscribe to the words of AOSTH's producer/director Kent Butterworth:
"If you can recognize the character, it's 'on model'."
And I am delighted whenever I see a character of
mine adapted into another form. Drawings and sculptures are designed by
human beings, and should look like it!
Apart from the American McDonald's car, the dolls, hoodie
and sipper pictured below are Australian. (Images from sonicgear.org)
This version of Robotnik is the one most often chosen for licensing throughout
the United Kingdom!

two below: British images sent
by Aaron Foster.
||Robotnik's looking a little "Asterix-y" here.
||Aaron writes: "In the British comic book series, Robotnik
went under a transformation from his video game look into your design by
hatching out of a giant egg! He wasn't a silly buffoon with a sexy arse
like in the cartoon, though."
||7/16/09: Lovable DVD box incorporating a tracing of one
of my layout drawings for the show's pilot film.
