Yog Force - Assemble!

Postby Cullsoft » Wed May 06 2009 6:58pm

Some of you may remember that near the start of the century, around the time of SS2's release, Moogie made a number of Yog plushies, in repsonse to the official ones Sega had released (which I understood were a little subpar). IIRC there were a dozen little plushies, a few medium sized ones and one huge plushie. They were made in limited release, and the lucky members who were able to get their names on the list were able to become proud owners of their own official SFC Yogs (complete with tags and certificates).

Well, I thought it was time to see how all the little blighters were doing - as well as get a reminder for who had which plushie.

Well, here's the tale of how Lil' Yog #08's doing! :D

--------

I meant to do this thread since back in March, and yesterday would have been an ideal time to conincide with SFC's birthday... sadly my new work contract got in the way so I never got round to it until now... though funnily enough it's because of that contract that I was able to find him!

You see, with all the bits and pieces in my room I seemed to have misplaced him ages ago... I knew I'd had him sitting on top of my wardrobe, but at some point he must have fallen down and I couldn't seem to find him for ages.

That was until last March, when I was clearing up the corner of my room to get rid of some junk, rearrange/tidy the various CD & DVD racks there, and on the whole make room for a computer I'd be given for my work contract and make a generally clear enough area for working form home (And having access to two computers at once).

The major event that's relevant to this thread was when this lot fell on top of me.

Image

In case you're trying to work it out, that includes a case with four drawers of 12 VHS tapes each, a DVD rack with at least two dozen DVDs (including box sets), and a CD rack with the best part of 100 CDs. Not pleasant, and bloody painful.

However, a badly bruised and sorely numb right side of my body didn't seem so bad when I found that the little bugger had been hiding behind them all along!

Image

And so, he's now safely sitting on my brother's old desk on the other side of my room with the singing & dancing dog I got last Christmas. Plus I've given him a Yog badge I also found during my tidying, having been missing since I got it at one of the Shining Only events.

Image

--------

So who's got the others and how are they faring? Any exciting adventures they've been up to over the years? :)

There were 15 each of large and small... and one of these days I'll be making the pair of giant Yogs, one of which will probably go on Ebay or to the best offer here. But that's for later.

I still have Large & Small Yogs #1.

I recall a couple went as contest prizes, can probably hunt out the winner names on SFC somewhere. Think I gave one away to my friend Rei in Japan, though I forget which number. I know Wildrosebc had #13, can't recall if it was small or large.

I'll have to take a photo of mine later. Meanwhile, here are some of the old Yog photos:

Image
Unstuffed, unarmed Large Yogs... prototype Large Yog also in the picture. Don't know what happened to him, he must be around somewhere.

Can't find photos of the original prototype... oh well.

Wonder if I still have the list of owners around? I've certainly got all the adoption cert files & photos of each individual Yog by number...

Slightly off topic, but I don't care ;P
I didn't actually get one of the plushies (didn't have the money at the time).
Moogie did however kindly send me this a while back, after some of the SF1 info collecting I did

It still happily sits on my desk :)

Large Yog #10 has been guarding my media shelf for many years now :) I thought about tidying up the shelf, but I thought you should see Yog in his natural surroundings.

I'd buy one as well if I wasn't completely broke... looks like I'll have to win a contest if there is a second coming of the Yog Force.

Yup. I do indeed have number thirteen. I believe he's a arge but not 100 percent sure. Right now my little guy is sitting in a box in my closet because my new kitten likes to chew things.

But boy am I glad I decided to gfet one. I remember we were pretty strapped for cash at the time. But I had to have one.

But then a friend of my husband had come back from Europe and had some foreign money he gave to my husband because he was too lazy to go to a bank and exchange it for US money. (Ah rich people).

So I sent Moogie the UK money, which turned out to be a bit more than the actual cost. But when he arrived (pretty fast for overseas) he was the cutest thing ever.

Hey Moogie- You had talked a bit at the time about possibly expanding the line a bit with Domingo and\or Kiwi. Can I get number 13 for them too if you do them??

If Domingo and Kiwi get made, at least one Penn plush needs to be made. LIVE ACTION MASCOT FORCE!
