Now that Mario has his own line of Lego sets, his old rival Sonic the Hedgehog has been tapping his feet and griping, “Where’s mine already?” It’s finally here, or at least it will be in a few days…the Lego Sonic set.
This 1,125-piece set contains everything you need to build a recreation of Green Hill Zone, the iconic first level that introduced Sonic to the world. Five minifigs are included (Sonic, Eggman, Crabmeat, Moto Bug and Phantom Ruby) plus gold rings on clear sticks, seven Chaos Emeralds and TVs containing power-ups. There’s even a working spring of sorts….stick Sonic on it, pull a lever and he will catapult into the ceiling. Be gentle with him though.
Most of the Sonic art style seems to have translated well to the blocky, hard-edged world of Lego, with one exception. What happened to Eggman?
Since the Doc isn’t really shaped like a human, you’d think his Lego form would turn out better than this. Our guess is that egg shapes don’t canonically exist in Lego, or something, forcing them to make this weird distorted facsimile.
If you have a good memory of all things Lego, you might know Sonic had a Lego set once before, but it was part of a larger product unrelated to him. He was offered as part of a Lego Dimensions set, back when the whole Toys To Games thing was a trend. That was in 2016 and the Sonic you get in THIS set is modeled differently.

If you’re a JRPG fan, then Bandai Namco’s Tales series needs no introduction. But even if you are, you might be unfamiliar with the title “Tales Of Luminaria” and might be thinking, “When did THAT happen? Did I miss one?” Sort of….Tales of Luminaria is a mobile game. And go
Cuphead and his pal Mugman, they love to roll the dice. By chance they played the devil’s game, and gosh, they paid the price! PAID THE PRICE! Sudio MDHR’s Cuphead is an amazing game, and shortly it will be (hopefully) an amazing TV series. Netflix released the long-demanded trailer this
