The LEGO Group announced the final design for the LEGO Ideas Sonic the Hedgehog Green Hill Zone set over the Christmas holidays, with the set officially launching earlier this month on 1st January 2022.
The set was originally designed by 24-year-old Viv Grannell, a 24-year-old British fan of both LEGO and Sonic, through the LEGO Ideas website, based on Green Hill Zone from Sonic Mania. The project gained enough support to be officially reviewed by LEGO, with the Danish toy company announcing last year that LEGO had reached an agreement with SEGA to put the set into full production.
Now, the design of the set has been finalised, based on Grannell's initial concept, and the LEGO Sonic the Hedgehog Green Hill Zone set is available to purchase on the LEGO store. The set includes 1,125 pieces, plus minifigures of Sonic, Dr. Eggman, Moto Bug, and Crabmeat, and even ten boxes of Golden Rings.
“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,” says LEGO Designer Sam Johnson.
