Sonic gets his own Lego set complete with item boxes, rings and Dr. Robotnik.
When a series or franchise has been immortalized through an official Lego set, its creators, fans, and everyone else involved can be sure to say they made it. Star Wars, DC, Marvel, and even Mario all have multiple Lego sets that fans can use to recreate iconic scenes, vehicles, and characters. 30 years after it was first introduced to the world, Sonic has not yet produced an official Lego set.
As Lego revealed today, Sonic is getting his own Green Hill Zone set. The even better news is that it will only be a matter of days before you get your hands on it. The Green Hill Zone set will be available in Lego stores and through its online store starting January 1, 2022, just four days after this item was posted, and will retail for $ 69.99.
The set was actually inspired by Sonic and Lego fan Viv Grannell. Viv submitted her vision for a Sonic Lego set to the Lego Ideas platform earlier this year. As soon as a submission reaches 10,000 votes, Lego will consider it. Viv’s Sonic design achieved this goal very quickly and Lego clearly loved the idea. The original design has been tweaked and the set that goes on sale on New Years Day can be found below.
The set consists of 1125 parts and of course includes Sonic, Dr. Robotnik complete with an Egg Robot to sit in, as well as the Crabmeat and Motobug enemies from the very first game. The set also includes interactive elements similar to the Mario sets, including a spinning control point, various item boxes, and ten boxes with rings that you can carefully place so Lego Sonic can rush around collecting them all.
Also included in the set are Chaos Emeralds, which you can see in the picture above, and a Technic lever that Sonic can use to jump in the air. It should also be noted that the Green Hill Zone set is a modular build that can be linked with other architecture sets. No confirmation yet, but that would suggest Sonic will get more Lego sets in the future. Perhaps a chemical plant zone set that connects to this and allows him to switch between the two sets with ease.

NetEase called it a bug, others called it a feature.
