The Sonic LEGO idea from Viv received 10,000 votes from fans on the LEGO Ideas platform – passing the threshold it needed to go into full production.
Speaking about the winning idea Viv said: “I’ve been invested in the world of Sonic for almost my entire life, and it’s such a perfect fit for the LEGO system that I spent about a year rallying support for it to happen.
“Having 10,000 people back my design was overwhelming enough, even with friends and family behind me, but having it be selected for further development was the most exciting secret I have ever had to keep!”
The Sonic Mania Green Hill Zone LEGO Ideas design is now going into the product development phase, in partnership with SEGA. Once it is finalised it will be available worldwide.
Jason Rice, director of brand licensing at SEGA Europe, said: “At SEGA, we’ve always encouraged fans to take part in the legacy of the Sonic franchise through their own creations and it’s wonderful to see the tradition continued through the LEGO Ideas programme. We’re thrilled to partner with Viv and the LEGO Group, and hope to inspire fans to continue creating their own unique Sonic the Hedgehog experiences for generations to come.”
