Based around everybody’s favorite blue blur, the LEGO Group announced that the new LEGO Ideas Sonic the Hedgehog Green Hill Zone set will make its debut on January 1.
This 1,125-piece set includes updated versions of Sonic, Crabmeat, Moto Bug, Dr. Eggman and the Phantom Ruby as minifigures. To add to the experience, 10 boxes of golden-colored Rings and a Technic lever that can spring Sonic and his friends into the air have also been included. As one builds the set, they can also get themselves a gem reward.
To turn the concept into a LEGO set was the work of LEGO Designer Sam Johnson.
According to Sam:
“Just about anyone who has enjoyed video games on any level in the last 30 years, knows and loves Sonic — and has probably sped through the unforgettable Green Hill Zone with him. We have designed this set to be just as colourful and fun as the in-game version of The Green Hill Zone, then filled it with lots of easter eggs and even prizes to help fans enjoy some of their most beloved gaming icons in a brand-new way.”Sam Johnson
