Lego is asserting a brand new video game-themed set that includes Sonic the Hedgehog and characters from Sonic Mania. (When you may have advised six-year-old me that sometime there could be a Sonic-themed Lego set, he’d cry tears of pleasure.)
You will get a have a look at an idea design for the set, which is themed round Sonic’s traditional Inexperienced Hill Zone stage, on the prime of this publish. I really like how ridiculous Sonic seems in Lego type, and Physician Eggman’s towering Loss of life Egg Robotic is simply superior.
The idea for the set was submitted to Lego by Viv Grannell, a Sonic fan primarily based within the UK, by means of the Lego Ideas program. Submissions have to obtain 10,000 votes earlier than Lego will take into account making them an precise Lego set, so it’s no small feat that Grannell was capable of get the required help for the concept to grow to be a actuality. If you wish to see extra footage of the idea, take a look at Grannell’s web page for the venture on the Lego Ideas site.
Lego says the set is now getting into the “product growth section,” so it looks like we could be a methods away from really having the ability to purchase it.
Final 12 months, Lego dipped its toes into online game crossovers with its Mario-themed sets. These have an interactive component to them. The Lego Mario determine will play a sound when it’s positioned in a pipe or once you made it leap on a Goomba, for instance. Sadly, it doesn’t seem to be Lego Sonic will be capable of make any noises, so don’t count on to listen to any of his snarky quips. Perhaps Lego can add these in a future set.
