GNF Toyz' logo as of 2019.

Geek N Freak Toyz (abbreviated as GNF Toyz) is a South Korean manufacturer of licensed collectible products, formed in 2013. In 2015, GNF revealed they would be producing Sonic the Hedgehog toys.[1]

Sonic the Hedgehog Boom8 Series

In 2017, GNF started producing figures for their Sonic the Hedgehog Boom8 series. The line-up consisted of main characters from the series, with the figures being about 8 cm tall. Most of the initial characters were based on the Classic style, reminiscent of First 4 Figures' early Sonic figures, but some characters in the "Modern" style were soon revealed to be in the works.

Many of the figures were first revealed at conventions in Korea, such as several of the figures being revealed unpainted at Comic Con Seoul 2018, and painted versions of Metal Sonic and Dr. Eggman at 2019 PlayX4. Modern Super Sonic and Silver debuted at Comic Con Seoul 2019, alongside modern Sonic, Shadow and the Sonic VS Chopper diorama.[2]
