Are you ready for some LEGO Sonic the Hedgehog fun? Buckle in as we take you through LEGO’s new releases!
Sonic the Hedgehog is a classic gaming icon and mascot of Sega, inspiring generations of gamers around the world. He has been around since 1991, when he first appeared in the game of the same name. Sonic is an anthropomorphic blue hedgehog who loves to run fast – really fast! Not only can he outrun any creature on two or four legs, but he also has the ability to curl up in a ball and spin across the landscape at supersonic speeds. In his adventures, Sonic has often come up against enemies such as Dr Robotnik and his robot army. With help from his friends Tails, Knuckles, Cream and others, Sonic is always ready to take on whatever challenge comes his way with a smile and a quip!
In 2022 LEGO released a Sonic the Hedgehog set under the LEGO Ideas theme. Set 21331; Sonic the Hedgehog™ – Green Hill Zone was a hit with fans, leading to LEGO now releasing a new LEGO® Sonic the Hedgehog™ theme! If you are looking for some speed-fueled fun that’ll make your head spin, then LEGO® Sonic the Hedgehog™ playsets will offer an awesome combination of fast action and creative play! You will be able to put yourself in the shoes of Sonic and friends – Tails, Amy, Dr Eggman, Cubot, and the Badniks – as you recreate scenes from your favourite adventures. With a speed sphere included in some, you can launch Sonic through the zones. When it’s time for a break from high-speed action, grab some of Sonic’s animal friends and have fun with imaginative play.
