Over the last decade or two, the DIY LEGO community has gained an enormous amount of traction, as evidenced by the plethora of bustling online message boards where at-home builders share their own custom brick-built creations. Well aware of this phenomenon, LEGO has leaned into this trend with its LEGO IDEAS program, which invites users to submit their own LEGO designs and kits that the online community can vote into production.

The program’s latest kit that’s just been green-lit for production comes from UK-based brick building enthusiast, Viv Grannell, who has recreated the iconic Green Hill Zone level from the 1991 Sega Genesis game, Sonic The Hedgehog, from the Danish toy bricks. After originally debuting her first version of the first level of the hit video game franchise in 2017, Grannell has since treated the 700-piece kit to numerous updates including improved modules, a more detailed Egg Robot mech, and the ability to use the same pieces to create an alternate “Encore Mode” track. LEGO has yet to reveal pricing or a production date beyond stating that it expects to LEGO Sonic Mania Green Hill Zone kit to go on sale later this year.
