Following last week’s leak, the LEGO Group has set a release date for the new LEGO Ideas Sonic the Hedgehog Green Hill Zone set, which was conceived by 24-year-old, UK based LEGO superfan Viv Grannell through the LEGO Ideas platform. Fans will be able to pick up the product starting on January 1, 2022.
LEGO Ideas Sonic the Hedgehog Green Hill Zone has 1,125 pieces, including five minifigures. It features an updated version of Sonic, Crabmeat, Moto Bug, Dr. Eggman, and the Phantom Ruby. Buyers will also receive ten boxes of golden-colored Rings and a Technic lever to spring Sonic and friends into the air. Additionally, you can earn a gem reward as you build the set.
LEGO designer Sam Johnson was responsible for turning Grannell’s concept into a proper set. He had this to say:
“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 colorful 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.”
The LEGO Sonic the Hedgehog Green Hill Zone set will be sold via LEGO Stores and the official site. Pricing is set at $69.99 / £59.99 / €69.99.
