According to rumors, five new Sonic the Hedgehog Lego kits will be released in August 2023.
The five sets would allegedly have 292 to 802 components and will cost between $30 and $100. They’re expected to be accessible in the first wave in August 2023, however exact release dates and designs have yet to be determined.
The five new kits – codenamed “Lemon” at the time – will contain distinct stages from the popular game and may integrate with the current Green Hill Zone set, according to Lego site Promobricks. Unlike the Mario kits, these are expected to come with collectable minifigs included.
“This allows the Sonic minifigure, which must be placed in a ball, to be fired through the relevant level. It is unknown what the sets will look like or which minifigures will be included.”
Of course, this isn’t the first time Sonic has been memorialized in Lego. This time last year, Lego revealed a brand-new set based on Sonic the Hedgehog’s classic Green Hill Zone from 1991.
This new “analog rendition of the Green Hill Zone provides fans the ability to create and showcase a piece of gaming history,” according to “superfan” Viv Grannell, who submitted their proposal through the Lego Ideas website and gained 10,000 votes from other fans to make their dream a reality.
Have you seen Lego’s holiday twist on the classic Home Alone film? The Mansion Alone set has finally arrived, and we’ve evaluated it so that, unlike the Wet Bandits, you’ll know exactly what you’re getting into before taking on Kevin McCallister and the legendary McCallister home.
“If you enjoy Lego and Home Alone, it’s impossible to fault this product,” we stated in our review, giving the set 4.5 out of 5 stars for its multiple Home Alone allusions, dollhouse utility, and excellent booby traps.
“It’s worth the money in my view not just for the number of Lego you get, but also for the delight and memories the construction gives. To complete the scene, all I need is Kevin’s uncle Rob and aunt Georgette’s apartment on New York’s 95th Street, or even Duncan’s Toy Chest.”
