This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.

As part of NCI's souvenirs collection, we present to you some MUCH nicer looking collectables based off of the popular annual short movies created by Balena Productions, seen HERE. Below are comparisons of the pictures. One from the movie, and one from the picture in-game.

Because these pieces are MUCH nicer with the mahogany wood frames, these pieces of memorabilia can be your Sim's for the higher value price of 500 simoleons each. They are "signed" by the sketcher of the stills in digital ink. They can be found in your catalog's Wall Hangings sub-section. There's no Certificate Of Authenticity as was the case with the previous Sonic collectable. The sketches were shaded & interpreted by the folks at NCI.

Place these pictures anywhere you'd like in your Sim's home. They are 2 tiles wide, and so having it prominently displayed is an option. Incidentally, the painting comes as only 1 object in the game. The other stills are from the recolor option in the buy mode catalog. So don't go crazy finding where the other 3 paintings are, because they'll never appear!

Credit goes to SEGA for creating Sonic The Hedgehog, Miles "Tails" Prower, Manic The Hedgehog, and Sonia The Hedgehog.

Credit goes to Balena Productions for creating their movies. You can see the latest of the series on YouTube here, for those of you Sonic fans who haven't seen it before. You'd probably want to start with the first of the three movies ("Christmas With Sonic") to understand the progression of the stories. Don't worry, it's between 15 to 20 minute long per movie.
