After garnering enough interest for production consideration on the LEGO Ideas website, LEGO is releasing an official Sonic The Hedgehog Green Hill Zone playset (links to LEGO product site) on January 1st to start the new year running(!). This is that playset. Featuring a respectable 1,125 pieces, the $70 set includes an iconic loop-de-loop, some enemies, a checkpoint, some power-ups and chaos emeralds, a bounce pad, and Dr. Robotnik. I just bought one for my niece, but if my sister doesn’t have one in the next two days I’m keeping it for myself.
Thanks to my dad, for supporting my interest in video games (and pinball) from a young age, and still to this day.
