Sonic the Hedgehog gets its own Lego set thanks to a dedicated Sonic fan and support from the Lego community. Lego Group and Sega have given the green light to produce an official Sonic Lego set – officially known as the Sonic Mania Green Hill Zone Lego Ideas design – conceived by 24-year-old tab Viv Grannell.
The picture above shows Grannell’s idea, which was sent to the website Lego Ideas. Lego Ideas is a test area where brick enthusiasts can suggest new sets, which are then voted on by the community, and can eventually become official Lego releases. Grannell̵
“I’ve been invested in the Sonic world for almost my entire life, and it’s a perfect fit for the Lego system that I spent about a year supporting it,” Grannell said in a press release. “Having 10,000 people back designed was overwhelming enough, even with friends and family behind me, but having chosen it for further development was the most exciting secret I have ever had to keep!”
A finished version of the Sonic Mania Green Hill Zone is under development. Price and release date were not announced.
Sonic the Hedgehog got the Lego treatment back in 2016, when he appeared in Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment Lego Dimensions. The toy-for-life game gave fans a Sonic minifig, Sonic Speedster and Tornado biplane, all in Lego form.
