LEGO Ideas 21331 Sonic the Hedgehog: Green Hill Zone is Releasing This Weekend

There’s another set to add to the boatload of new LEGO products releasing on 1st January 2022. This is one we’re particularly excited about, however. The long-awaited LEGO Ideas Sonic the Hedgehog: Green Hill Zone was finally unveiled yesterday. And its release date is only a few days away.

LEGO Ideas 21331 Sonic the Hedgehog was first announced back in February after a delayed decision as to whether or not it would enter production. It’s based on a LEGO Ideas design submitted by LEGO/Sonic fan Viv Grannell. As always, the design has been tweaked somewhat to make it suitable for retail, but the design we’re left with is eye-catching – and will surely be a must for any Sonic the Hedgehog fan.

Made up of 1,125 pieces, LEGO Ideas Sonic the Hedgehog: Green Hill Zone is modular, meaning its pieces can be put together in a number of ways. Or, if you wish, multiple sets can be purchased to make an even bigger replica Green Hill Zone level. There’s a loop-de-loop, various enemies for Sonic to squash, gold coins to collect and, of course, a Dr. Robotnik to be defeated.

There’s a number of interactive elements in the level, too. A Technic lever gives a spring module a realistic bounce, for example. And since this is a realistic replica of a Sonic the Hedgehog level, you’ll find invincibility and super speed TV screens to collect.

Despite looking and feeling like a playset, LEGO Ideas 21331 Sonic the Hedgehog: Green Hill Zone is part of LEGO’s 18+ range. That doesn’t mean it can’t be played with, of course. But it works just as nicely as a display piece. We’re certainly looking forward to having this one on show in the office, that’s for sure.

The set will be available from 1st January 2022, priced at £59.99. It’s exclusive to LEGO stores and Find out more about the set by clicking here.
