‘Sonic The Hedgehog’ fans are in love with this new limited-edition LEGO set
Fans of the original Sonic the Hedgehog videogame on Sega Genesis, and all the speedster’s subsequent appearances on consoles throughout the years, are getting a special blast from the past from none other than toy company Lego with a brand-new limited edition set of the colorful bricks.
The company made the announcement with a nostalgia-filled video on Twitter, inviting fans to go “from player to builder.” The video further invites fans of every generation: “adults welcome.” Check out the announcement right here.
The set features a diorama of the classic first level, Green Hill Zone, complete with a loop-de-loop, multiple rings for the Blue Blur to collect, a palm tree, Badniks, items, a save point, the chaos emeralds, Dr. Robotnik himself in his hovercraft, and of course, a Sonic the Hedgehog in Minifigure form.
One of the co-developers of the set, Viv Grannell, expressed their excitement on social, alongside many fans

Gaming content creator Lara Lunardi said the set looked “goddamn perfect.”
And at a price point of $69.99, according to Lego’s website, one fan was just happy the set wouldn’t break their wallet.
However, not everyone was happy to see how Dr. Robotnik turned out, looks-wise.
According to Lego’s website, the set style is meant to emulate the pixilated graphical aesthetic and quirky characters of the original Sega Genesis games. And with a toy built around square brick-building, we’d say they’ve more or less nailed that look!
The Sonic the Hedgehog Green Hill Zone Lego set is available beginning Jan. 1, 2022.
