2022 will be a big year for Sonic the Hedgehog. In addition to a brand new live-action film, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, and a new “open-zone” video game, Sonic borders, Sega’s naughty mascot gets her own Lego set. Lego Group and Sega announced on Tuesday that Sonic’s Green Hill Zone kit will be launched on January 1, 2022 for $ 69.99 in Lego stores and online.
Lego’s Green Hill Zone set will recreate the look and feel of the original the hedgehog Sonic‘s opening level, complete with grassy green hills, rugged terrain and a loop. The set of 1,125 parts includes five minifigures (Sonic the Hedgehog, Dr. Eggman, Moto Bug, Crabmeat and Phantom Ruby) and an interactive technical handle to send Sonic (or his enemies) into the air. Power-ups, including golden rings, Super Speed and shield boxes, are also included, as are Chaos Emeralds.
Sonic’s new Lego set was created as part of the Lego Ideas program, where fans and amateur builders submit their own design ideas for new sets. Sonic the Hedgehog’s Green Hill Zone set was submitted by Viv Grannell, whose submission of ideas was confirmed to go into production in February.
Sonic the Hedgehog also got the Lego treatment back in 2016 when he appeared in Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainments Lego Dimensions. The toy-for-life game gave fans a Sonic minifig, Sonic Speedster and Tornado biplane, all in Lego form. Sonic included in the Green Hill Zone will have an updated design, says Lego.
