Last week I asked our Photoshop-savvy readers for live-action Sonic The Hedgehog. They gave me gold.

Sorry, Sony, but there's no way your live-action/animated Sonic movie will be half as entertaining as these winning entries. I've not laughed out loud this many times since I started running the weekly Kotaku 'Shop Contest. Seriously, my sides hurt.

The overwhelming hilarity and absurdity made it incredibly hard to pick a winner this week, so I gathered a group of potential winners, and let my wife decide. My wife, the Wes Anderson fan. Antoineandtheblows really lucked out with that decision. Just a simple word swap, a few pasted bits, and bam.

As for the rest of this week's winners β€” I'm sure I'd enjoy each of these more than whatever Sony comes up with. Excellent job, my friends.
