Have you ever wanted to burn an image of Sonic the Hedgehog on your toast? No? Well, Sega is crowdfunding a toaster that burns the blue blur into your bread anyway.

The Sonic the Hedgehog Twitter noted that, while most companies are announcing big new game titles for E3, Sega is bringing out this toaster for all the Sonic fans out there.

It appears that the toaster only toasts Sonic’s image on to the center and the edges of your bread, which is... not the best. Only the middle part of your toast will actually be toasted, so hopefully you really love un-toasted bread. I guess it’ll be okay if you heavily jam it? Or use the poorly toasted bread to make a sandwich?

The toaster costs $34.95 and 1,000 of these babies need to be sold before July 12 in order for them to be made. According to the listing page, the toaster is only available to be shipped to the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Mexico, Argentina, Belize, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama and Peru.
