Lego Sonic the Hedgehog (stylized as LEGO Sonic the Hedgehog) is a Lego theme based on the Sonic the Hedgehog video game series created by Yuji Naka, Naoto Ohshima and Hirokazu Yasuhara. It is licensed from Sega. The theme was first introduced in 2023.[2]


The product line focuses on Sonic, an anthropomorphic blue hedgehog who battles the evil Doctor Eggman, a mad scientist. Lego Sonic the Hedgehog aimed to recreate the main characters in Lego form, including Sonic the Hedgehog, Miles "Tails" Prower, Amy Rose and Doctor Eggman.[3][4][5][6]


Prior to the theme's official launch, Sonic the Hedgehog was included in the Lego crossover video game, Lego Dimensions, with a level pack being released in 2016. Lego Sonic the Hedgehog began with the release of a user-designed construction set based initially on the video game Sonic Mania and the final product was based on the first level from the first game, Sonic the Hedgehog. The design was submitted to Lego Ideas by Lego superfan Viv Grannell. The design achieved 10,000 votes, after which it was selected for production. Viv Grannell said, "I’ve been invested in the world of Sonic for almost my entire life, and it’s such a perfect fit for the LEGO system that I spent about a year rallying support for it to happen. Having 10,000 people back my design was overwhelming enough, even with friends and family behind me, but having it be selected for further development was the most exciting secret I have ever had to keep!". The set was produced to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the original 1991 video game.[7]

Lego Sonic the Hedgehog was inspired by the Sonic the Hedgehog video game series. The Lego construction toy range was based on the classic video game series and developed in collaboration with The Lego Group and Sega. The construction sets were designed to recreate the story and characters of the classic video game series in Lego form.[2]


Following the released of Sonic the Hedgehog Level Pack (set number: 71244) for the Lego Dimensions toys-to-life video game in 2016 and Sonic the Hedgehog - Green Hill Zone (set number: 21331) for Lego Ideas in 2022. Lego Sonic the Hedgehog theme was launched on August 1, 2023.[8][9][10][11][12][13] The Lego Group had a partnership with Sega. As part of the marketing campaign, The Lego Group released the four sets based on Sonic the Hedgehog video game series. Each set featured different Animal Rescue Island, Green Hill Zone Loop Challenge, Speed Sphere Challenge, Workshop and Tornado Plane. Included minifigures of Sonic the Hedgehog, Tails, Amy Rose and Doctor Eggman were released as well. The sets were designed primarily for children with an age rating of 6+ or above.[4][2][14] In addition, Sonic Central revealed Sonic vs. Dr. Eggman's Death Egg Robot (set number: 76993) will be released as well.[15][16]

Video games

A Sonic the Hedgehog-themed pack for the toys-to-life video game Lego Dimensions was released on November 18, 2016. The level pack contained a playable Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic Speedster and The Tornado, and unlocks an additional Sonic the Hedgehog-themed level and world.[8][9][10][11] In the level (titled "Sonic Dimensions"), Doctor Eggman has stolen a Keystone Device, which allows him to control other dimensions with the use of the Chaos Emeralds. It is up for Sonic to retrieve the emeralds and the device out of the evil doctor's hands in order to save the world. Along the way, Sonic must also search for his friends, battle his metal counterparts, and face off against Chaos, who absorbed the device and used its elemental abilities.

Lego versions of Sonic, Doctor Eggman, Tails and Amy were made available as playable characters for a limited time in the Sonic Forces: Speed Battle and Sonic Dash mobile games, added in August 2023 to coincide with the launch of the theme.[25][better source needed]

To promote the theme, a cosmetic skin for Sonic based on his Lego minifigure is available as free downloadable content for Sonic Superstars, released alongside the game on October 17, 2023.[26] Additional Lego-themed skins for Tails, Knuckles, and Amy are available as part of the game's special edition, along with Lego-themed arenas for the game's multiplayer mode.[27] A similar Lego-themed skin for Doctor Eggman was also offered as a pre-order incentive.[28]


The Sonic the Hedgehog - Green Hill Zone set based on the first level of the original 1991 video game was released on January 1, 2022, to mixed reviews, such as that of Alice Clarke from Kotaku, who called it "not the most thrilling build", remarking its costly price, but went on to state that Sonic fans would love it.[29] Mike Harris of GamesRadar gave the set a 4/5 rating and commented, "Sonic-themed presentation will delight fans."[30]
