Sega’s “Sonic the Hedgehog” once got LEGO representation via character-level pack in the now-defunct “LEGO Dimensions” videogame. LEGO Ideas member Viv “toastergrl” Grannell sought to change that with her product idea. Her “Sonic Mania – Green Hill Zone” passed the Second 2020 Review Stage earlier this year. Afterwards, the now soon-to-be-official set became a prime subject for various rumors. The last big batch of speculations since September included set number (21331), price (€69.99/$83.08) and release date (January 1, 2022). This previous weekend, one new little rumor was caught by Brick Fanatics.
They cite this new info from brick_clicker on Instagram, with his weekend post regarding this heavily-anticipated LEGO Ideas set. According to him, the set may now just be called “Sonic Mania” (dropping “Green Hill Zone”). Next, set 21331 will apparently be comprised of 1,125 pieces. Interestingly, while earlier rumors (care of Promobricks) pegged the set’s retail price at €69.99, the US$ pricing’s roughly similar. Other than that, brick_clicker again reiterates the New Year’s 2022 release. Barring new possible changes, the set will still comprise parts to build Green Hill Zone. Brick Fanatics did its own speculation on additional characters beyond the Sonic minifigure and buildable Dr. Robotnik/Eggman. Nothing’s concrete though.
And with that, we leave you with the reminder that the above info is mere rumor for now. We just hope LEGO will soon give concrete details on their Ideas Sonic Mania set for everyone. Oh, and the above photo is from toastergrl’s original product idea, just for possibility reference.
