Five new Sonic the Hedgehog Lego kits are rumored to be released in August 2023.
The five sets are said to range in size from 292 to 802 pieces and cost between around $30 and $100. They are believed to be available in the first wave in August 2023, although exact release dates and designs have yet to be confirmed.
As disclosed in advance by the Lego site Promobrics (opens in a new tab) (Thank you, VGC (opens in a new tab)), the five new sets – codenamed “Lemon” at the time – will feature different levels from the iconic game that can be combined with the existing Green Hill Zone set. Unlike the Mario sets, they are believed to also sell with the collectible minifigs included.
“Another special feature of the LEGO Sonic 2023 novelties should be some kind of launch device, which is included in each set,” the site teases (translated via Google Translate).
“With this, the Sonic figure, which you have to ball up, can be pulled through the corresponding level. What exactly the sets will look like and which figures will be included is not yet known.”
This isn’t the first time Sonic has been immortalized in Lego, of course. At this time last year, Lego has announced a brand new set based on the iconic Green Hill Zone (opens in a new tab) from 1991’s Sonic the Hedgehog.
Designed by ‘superfan’ Viv Grannell – who submitted her idea through the Lego Ideas platform and received 10,000 votes from other fans to propel her dream into reality – this new ‘analogue version of the Green Hill Zone gives fans the ability to build and display a piece of in-game history”.
Have you seen the festive Lego version of the iconic movie Home Alone? It’s been a while, but the Home Alone set is finally here, and we’ve revamped it so that – unlike the Wet Bandits – you’ll know exactly what you’re getting into before you take on Kevin McCallister and the iconic home McCallister.
“If you love Lego and Home Alone, it’s hard to fault this product,” we wrote in our review (opens in a new tab)who gave the kit an impressive 4.5 out of 5 stars for its extensive Home Alone references, dollhouse functionality, and brilliant trappings.
“In my opinion, it’s worth the money not only for the amount of Lego you get, but also for the joy and nostalgia the building brings. Now all I need is some Kevin’s Uncle Rob and Aunt Georgette’s 95th Street New York townhouse, or maybe Duncan’s toy box, to complete the set.”
