Original story: Last week a Sonic the Hedgehog Lego set was leaked online. Now, Lego has made it official - announcing the Green Hill Zone Act 1 set will be made available on 1st January 2022 for $69.99 / £59.99 / €69.99.
This set was conceived through the Lego Ideas platform by the 24-year-old UK "superfan" Viv Grannell and adapted by Lego designer Sam Johnson after the submission reached 10,000 votes.
"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.”
All up, this set contains 1,125 pieces and includes five mini figures: Crabmeat, Moto Bug, Dr. Eggman and the Phantom Ruby as well as an updated version of Sonic. Along with this are 10 boxes of golden Rings, a Technic leaver to spring Sonic and company into the air, gem rewards, and a lot of other easter eggs to discover.
