In a new exciting development for fans, the LEGO Group has officially unveiled three new iconic LEGO Sonic the Hedgehog 2024 minifigures. The reveal was made via LEGO’s social media, sending ripples of excitement throughout the LEGO Sonic community.
More LEGO Sonic the Hedgehog 2024 Sets on the Horizon
Pricevortex has once updated its listing to include two highly anticipated LEGO Sonic the Hedgehog 2024 sets namely: Shadows Lab Escape (76995) and Knuckles Mech Battle (76996). This not only hints at the thrilling adventures these sets promise but also opens the door to the possibility of more Sonic-inspired minifigures being introduced.
This year, LEGO Sonic the Hedgehog fans were ecstatic to witness the return of the legendary Blue Blur himself after debuting in the now-discontinued LEGO Dimensions theme and making a brief comeback in the LEGO Ideas Sonic the Hedgehog – Green Hill Zone (21331). Alongside Sonic, fans were treated to the delightful minifigure renditions of Dr. Eggman, Amy, and Tails.
Three New Additions to the Sonic Minifigure Family
Adding to the excitement, the LEGO Group has unveiled the arrival of three brand-new LEGO Sonic the Hedgehog 2024 minifigures. These additions have been met with immense enthusiasm from the Sonic fanbase. The arrival of these three new Sonic minifigure characters was accompanied by a teaser that humorously blames Dr. Eggman for their delayed introduction. The trio includes Knuckles, Shadow, and Rouge the Bat.
Take a look at the teaser below:

Thankfully, this teaser allows us to have a sneak peek at what to expect from these latest LEGO Sonic the Hedgehog 2024 minifigures and their distinctive designs.
Knuckles: The Strong Echidna
Knuckles, a red echidna, is not only one of Sonic’s closest allies but also a former rival. His strength, marked by the spikes on his fists, sets him apart from Sonic and Tails, who rely on agility and speed. This unique character has earned the nickname “Knuckles” for his formidable power, and his minifigure version perfectly captures all of these traits as well.
Shadow: The Enigmatic Hedgehog
Shadow, a black hedgehog, lives up to his name by often serving as a dark foil to Sonic. He frequently assumes the role of an antagonist, though he occasionally allies with our beloved hero. Shadow also boasts unique leg printing, right down to his gold-toed trainers.
Rouge the Bat: A Vivid Character
Rouge the Bat, as her name suggests, is a bat with striking purple wings. Her design is the most captivating of the trio, featuring vibrant colors that replicate her distinctive blue makeup and various heart motifs on both her torso and feet.
