Sonic the Hedgehog LEGO sets

The iconic speedster, Sonic the Hedgehog, continues to skyrocket in popularity through forthcoming film sequels, a TV series, and now, five fresh LEGO sets showcasing legendary characters and landscapes. The Sonic-themed LEGO sets, with prices ranging between $34.99 to $99.99, are set for an August 1 launch. Fans can pre-order on LEGO’s website or grab them from Target and LEGO stores. Sonic’s enduring charm as the second most beloved gaming mascot is on full display with his widespread multimedia presence, including movies, TV shows, and a series of video game adventures.

Sonic the Hedgehog, one of the most cherished brands across all mediums, continues to sprint towards major success, particularly in cinema. As the merchandise for this favorite videogame hedgehog reaches unprecedented heights, LEGO is set to release five new Sonic-themed sets in August.

These LEGO sets include Sonic vs. Dr. Eggman’s Death Egg Robot, Sonic’s Speed Sphere Challenge, Tails’ Workshop and Tornado Plane, Amy’s Animal Rescue Island, and Sonic’s Green Hill Zone Loop Challenge. The sets are priced between $34.99 and $99.99, and all will be available from August 1.

The Speedy Hedgehog’s Journey from Gaming to Hollywood

Since Sonic’s inaugural video game appearance in 1991 on the Sega Genesis, the character has secured a special place in the hearts of gamers. Parallel to his competitor Super Mario, Sonic has starred in innumerable video games, TV shows, crossover events, and movies. His 2020 self-titled live-action film debut, released just before the pandemic, was a blockbuster. Its 2022 sequel, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, enjoyed even greater acclaim and financial success, grossing over $400 million worldwide. This led to the rapid approval of a third film and a TV spinoff for Sonic’s ally Knuckles. Sonic the Hedgehog 3 is set to be released on Christmas 2024, while the Knuckles spinoff will premiere on Paramount+ later this year. Sonic’s Netflix animated series, Sonic Prime, launched its second season earlier this year, and the latest video game adventure, Sonic Frontiers, keeps fans occupied as they anticipate Sonic’s cinematic return.

Although the Sonic frenzy hasn’t matched Mario’s fervor this past spring, the endearing blue blur still holds the title as the second most cherished gaming mascot. Mario and Sonic’s Olympic rivalry is well-known, and toys like the LEGO sets in partnership with Sega offer an excellent way to honor Sonic’s exciting history and universe. As if their gaming and movie face-offs weren’t enough, the LEGO sales might serve as the next big battlefield for Mario and Sonic.

Where to Purchase Sonic’s LEGO sets?

All five new Sonic-themed LEGO sets are ready for pre-order on LEGO’s website. The sets will also hit the shelves of Target and LEGO stores starting August 1. Sonic fans eager for these releases can stream both Sonic films on Paramount+ while they wait.
