Another page for the list - is "Eggmobile" the best name?
I had a quick skim through the US manuals for the early games - none specifically mention Robotnik's machine by name. The Sonic Bible calls it the Egg-O-Matic as does AoStH. "Eggmobile" and "Egg Mobile" seem to come into play in the early-2000s. Don't yet know about the Japanese, though it's looking like the ship in Sonic R is different at the very least.
Just because it's probably not a good idea to have a captioned image that says "The Eggmobile, as depicted in Sonic the Hedgehog 2", if there was no Eggmobile in Sonic 2 ;) -Black Squirrel (talk) 17:10, 14 May 2019 (EDT)
- As far as Japanese material goes, the machine was originally known as Eggman's Mobile as far back as Sonic 2, whereas it was later referred to as the Egg Mobile (エッグモービル) somewhere around Sonic R. I would say "Egg Mobile" would work for the article name. --BSonirachi (talk) 17:27, 14 May 2019 (EDT)
- The Sonic Drift manual describes the Egg Typhoon as a modified Eggman Mobile (エッグマンモービル), the same term used in the Sonic 2 manual. Most of the Sonic 3 boss names end in "Mobile", and they all originate from the Sonic the Hedgehog 3 Koushiki Guide Book. If anyone owns that book, it might be worth checking if Egg Mobile or Eggman Mobile are used at all - maybe for the section in Launch Base where Sonic hitches a ride. --Pecky (talk) 20:27, 14 May 2019 (EDT)
