Sonic the Hedgehog is a popular video game franchise that follows a blue hedgehog who can move at incredible speeds. The blue speedster became a hit when it came into gamers’ homes in 1991 on the Sega Genesis, and it has seen another big success with the live-action movie debut back in early 2020, with a sequel coming in 2021. One of the most popular levels in the game is Green Hill Zone, and Sega has teamed up with LEGO to release the LEGO Ideas Sonic the Hedgehog Green Hill Zone set.

The LEGO set is detailed and recreates the first level in the 1991 video game, which is one of the most popular video game levels of all time. It was conceived by 24-year-old, UK-based LEGO superfan Viv Grannell under the LEGO Ideas platform, and soon fans will get a chance to build that level via the LEGO set. The LEGO Ideas platform allows fans to create designs with the LEGO fan community voting for the best one. It reached the requirement of 10,000 votes to be considered by the LEGO team to make it possible to reach the hands of fans.

In addition, there are 10 boxes of golden-colored Rings and a Technic lever to help Sonic to jump sky high. The set also captures the gem reward in the video game.

The LEGO Ideas Sonic the Hedgehog Green Hill Zone set will be available in LEGO Stores and on New Year’s Day, January 1, 2022. The retail price is $69.99 / £59.99 / €69.99.
