Themed around Sonic the Hedgehog’s classic Green Hill Zone stage, Lego is making a new video game-themed set featuring characters from ‘Sonic Mania.’ According to The Verge, the concept for the set was submitted to Lego by Viv Grannell, a Sonic fan based in the UK.
Lego’s website notes that any ideas submitted to its Ideas program need to receive 10,000 votes before the company will consider making them an actual Lego set.
For Sonic Mania, Lego says the set is now entering the “product development phase,” so it seems like we might be a few weeks away from actually being able to buy it.
The set will include:
- “Classic” Sonic the Hedgehog minifigure
- “Classic” Dr Eggman, Motobug and three Flickies as brick-built figures
- Heavy Gunner and Heavy Magician as brick-built figures (new!)
- Green Hill Zone “Palm Tree”, “Spring”, “Bridge and “Loop” modules (redesigned!)
- Egg Robot mech (redesigned!)
- Phantom Ruby and Ring accessories
- ~700 pieces, with 8 new prints (excluding minifigure parts) and a sticker sheet
