Sonic the Hedgehog (Green Hill Zone)

Sonic the Hedgehog, a classic game series, has entertained gamers for generations.

This game was made by Sega. This set is made by me, but the Sonic the Hedgehog is owned by Sega. There are many maps and levels that could be made into Lego. I chose the most well known and classic level, Green Hill Zone, to represent this project. It is definitely the most iconic level in the game. Even some people who are not fans of Sonic will recognize it. The build is a shortened version of the level Green Hill Zone Act 3.

Although Erector has made a few Sonic the Hedgehog construction toys, it is most likely that they only own rights to the Sonic the Hedgehog Racing Games, such as Sonic and Sega All Stars Racing Transformed, as they have only made sets from this game and the other Sonic the Hedgehog Racing Game. They have not made sets of any of the platformer Sonic games, like the classic one shown here from the original Sonic game. This means that Lego would be allowed, with Sega's consent, to produce a Sonic the Hedgehog Lego set without infringing on any agreement Erector may have with Sega. Of course, there is the chance that Erector has the full Sonic the Hedgehog Construction Toy License, but contracts end, and that is only a small possibility anyway.

Great thanks to Builder1280 for designs of Dr. Eggman and Sonic the Hedgehog, and other design ideas. Special thanks to GRusso for previous picture rendering and support.

Some interesting bits of information about this build is that at 2,095 pieces, it has a relatively high part count, but 1,695 of those pieces are 1x2 plates. If you remove all those 1x2 plates, the project only contains 400 pieces. The price count shouldn't be to high, as majority of the pieces are the 1x2 pieces, which are inexpensive in comparison to a lot of the other Lego pieces.

I made a youtube video for this project. It has a lot more pictures of the project. It shows the whole project and its part from different angles! Check it out here.

Related Projects Deserving Support: Megaman is a popular game deserving to be made in Lego. Alatariel beautifully recreated some classic levels from the Megaman game series. You can check it out here. Another fantastic project is the Pokemon Brick Version project by Kevinhink. He sculpted classic Pokemon from the fantastic game series. Vote here to make this amazing project a set!

A special thanks to Ragaru for the inspiration for me to create this project. His Super Mario World Project is fantastic, but sadly, it was archived because Lego can not get the Super Mario Bros. license. His rendition of the wonderfully classic game looks great! You can find it here.
His Legend of Zelda project is just really well made. This brilliant rendition of the wildly popular game series is extremely accurate, and the sharper, Twilight Princess like look he is using for it is the way to go I think with The Legend of Zelda Legos. It has now reached 10,000 supports! We await the review results! Check it out here.

This is the main area of the build. Sonic must traverse the area. There are many possible

enemies that could be used. I made two Buzz Bombers, common enemies in the level. I

also included two Crabmeats. Behind the bridge, there is a Chopper enemy jumping out of

the water, which is similar to a robotic fish. There are many spike obstacles, with springs

to jump over them. There are trees and flowers. There is a background with a sea, a sky,

and mountains.

This is a boss battle. It is Sonic the Hedgehog against Dr. Eggman. There are platforms

for Sonic to jump on. He then jumps on Dr. Eggman's head a few times to defeat him.

Dr. Eggman is in his flying machine he calls the Egg Mobile. It has a swinging egg. Dr.

Eggman uses this to try to defeat Sonic.

A better look at the Sonic the Hedgehog and Eggman figures. Because they are both

brick built, they would not need any new molds. Eggman could have a shirt and face

design, but no new molds would need to be created. This will keep the price of production

lower, thus increasing the chance of this project passing review. LEGO has already said it

will not be making any new molds for Lego Cuusoo.

The five sections separate. You can connect and disconnect them for maximum play

ability. You can collect all the pieces. There are pins on the sides, so you can attach

them in any order that you want.

Decision on Our Ability to Produce this Project

2014.03.19

First and foremost, thank you for creating this project on LEGO® CUUSOO!

We've looked into the possibility of producing a set based on this licensed property (Sonic the Hedgehog (Green Hill Zone)), and since another company has the construction toy license for this IP, we can’t pursue this further as a potential LEGO set. We're sorry to be the bearers of this disappointing news.

With any IP on LEGO CUUSOO is that there is the potential of a license conflict, either with an existing license or with a competitive licensor. Still, we think it’s better to be open and allow for possibilities, knowing there will be "no" answers along the way, than shut out the potential of IP-based products altogether. After all, just because this project isn’t a possibility doesn’t mean all IP projects wouldn’t be. 

We've archived this project now since we know it isn't feasible. Your project will remain visible on LEGO CUUSOO, but in a status where it can no longer be supported or commented on. This way fans can still admire your creation.

Opening ourselves to new product suggestions invites popular ideas that don't always work. We are grateful for the spirit behind projects like this Sonic the Hedgehog (Green Hill Zone)project and for the opportunity to be challenged. It keeps us sharp and looking toward the future of the LEGO brick. We hope to see more projects from you soon.

The LEGO CUUSOO Team


Note: If your idea is selected, the LEGO Group will make the final decision on how your proposed product should be produced, the final design, applicable licenses, production run size, sales channels, etc. Please understand that our comments here do not have an effect on the LEGO Review that will take place if the project reaches 10,000 supporters.
