Mad Catz always seems to be coming up with cool ideas for the sort of gaming accessories that real gamers will love, and they really have surpassed themselves with this limited-edition Sonic the Hedgehog Figure Inductive Charger, which has been released in honour of Sonic’s 20th Anniversary. The charger features a six-inch-tall Sonic, and is designed to complement the Mad Catz officially licensed Sonic the Hedgehog accessory range. The individually numbered, highly collectible Inductive Charger enables you to store and charge up to two Wii remotes as they rest on a green plateau representative of the classic Green Hill Zone. Built-in magnets help ensure controllers and battery packs are aligned in the most efficient* charging position while rechargeable NiMH battery packs rapidly energize to provide up to 15 hours of gameplay.
“Darren Richardson, President and Chief Executive Officer of Mad Catz commented, “We are delighted to be a part of Sonic’s 20th Anniversary with the new licensed Inductive Charger.* Working alongside SEGA, we believe we have created a charging solution which will prove irresistible to Sonic fans and gamers alike and one which continues to illustrate our strategy of bringing premier licenses to market via products which evoke a passionate consumer response.”

The charger is shipping now within the US, and is available to purchase from the Mad Catz web store for an MSRP of $49.99. Me want!
