Lego and Sonic The Hedgehog Combine To Produce The Green Hill Set
Lego has often intertwined with different worlds. Enthusiasts of Lego have built entire sets in multiple games including Star Wars and more. Today, Lego Group has announced that it is working alongside Sega and Sonic the Hedgehog to release Lego Ideas Sonic the Hedgehog Green Hill Zone Set. This set will be a genuine replication of one of the most iconic levels in video game history, as Sonic zips across the map in search of gold rings. This new map gives fans the chance to enjoy, build and display the amazing level.
The Green Hill Set brings a memorable level to life from Sonic’s 1991 launch. The set, made up of 1125 pieces, has various features including interactive elements and Easter eggs, ten ring boxes and 5 minifigures.
Viv Grannell, a Lego superfan, conceived the idea through the Lego Ideas platform and it was later brought to reality. As a Sonic enthusiast, Grannell put the Lego Ideas platform to use and submitted his design. Fans can submit their designs to the initiative, where it is voted upon.
Lego Designer Sam Johnson, who took on the job, discussed the set. Johnson stated, “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.”
The Green Hill Zone Set will be available for purchase from January 1st here at a price of $69.99 / £59.99 / €69.99.
