Fans often contribute ideas for licensed sets to the Lego Ideas program. The hope seems to be that if there’s enough support, a deal could be arranged. In the case of Sonic the Hedgehog, that’s exactly what happened. Viv Grannell’s Lego Ideas Sonic Mania Green Hill Zone set passed all of the tests. It will apparently appear in stores in June 2021 for Sonic’s 30th anniversary.

The original page for Grannell’s Lego Ideas Sonic Mania set offered more details. The project was originally posted in February 2019. Over the years, it was adjusted and redesigned. For example, as the artist pointed out, the Green Hill Zone elements were redesigned during the project’s lifespan. Also, both Heavy Magician and Heavy Gunner were added. Grannell’s design even offers an Encore Build option.

While it wasn’t at the same scale, Lego and Sega did work together before on Sonic the Hedgehog items. Lego Dimensions included a level pack inspired by the series. It came with a Sonic minifig and pieces to build the Tornado plane and Sonic Speedster car.

Here’s how the level looked in Lego Dimensions.

The Lego Ideas Sonic Mania Green Hill Zone set will be made and appear for the series’ 30th anniversary.
