LEGO Ideas 21331 Sonic the Hedgehog - Green Hill Zone Officially Revealed | Winter 2022


The next LEGO Ideas set has been revealed with it being the highly anticipated Sonic the Hedgehog - Green Hill Zone. 21331 will release on 1st January 1st 2022 making it the first LEGO Ideas set releasing in 2022. It will also retail for $69.99 with a total of four figures which include a Sonic Minifigure, a brick-built Eggman, a brick-built Crabmeat and a brick-built Moto Bug.


The set itself is bigger than the original design but it's in a linear 2D form making it more similar to the classic Sonic games rather than Sonic Mania. Sections of the set can still be moved about though, making the level customizable like the LEGO Super Mario sets and you can buy the set twice and attach it to the end of the original set to make the level even longer.

Even with the set being 2D and not being based on Sonic Mania, the LEGO Ideas designers have tried to keep the set as similar to the original design as possible. There's a palm tree built at the start of the level with the interesting use of Nexo Knight shields. Next to it is a wooden bridge with three floating rings and a lever-activated spring.


The set then continues into a classic Sonic loop followed by a spring with more rings. There's also buildable monitors on top of the loop along with a place for an enemy. There's also a sunflower and other natural decorations included making it more like Green Hill Zone to finish off the level.

Eggman's Eggmobil is still included to act like the boss at the end of the course along with Eggman himself in his red suit with his big belly and arms. There's also another side build of a stand to display all the seven Chaos Emeralds and a place to sit Sonic. Finally, a sticker of a lives counter is also included right at the start of the course.
