Sonic the Hedgehog is set to be the next video game superstar to receive his own LEGO set. A cool diorama featuring Sonic, Dr. Robotnik, and other series icons has been approved by both LEGO and Sega, and is set to go into production this year, just in time for the blue blur’s 30th anniversary.
The new kit, inspired by the Sonic Mania interpretation of Green Hill Zone, was submitted to the LEGO Ideas initiative by British Sonic the Hedgehog fan Viv Grannel. The neat looking setup received the requisite 10,000 votes by the LEGO community to be taken into official consideration, and as such Grannel’s design will now become a fully-realized release.
