As the previously revealed LEGO Shadow set prepares to tear up the road next month, we're finally getting our first look at LEGO Knuckles, and... I don't think anyone was expecting it to come in this form:

Yes, perhaps the character least likely to need a mech suit or have access to a mech suit... or just know how to operate a mech suit... has a mech suit for some reason.
Knuckles Planet Robobot Knuckles' Mech Battle releases early next year and will include Knuckles and Rouge minifigs, a big ol' muscly mech for Knux, a glider for Rouge, and a small Master Emerald shrine for $34.99. Despite the poster finding it early, Shadow the Hedgehog Escape officially launches on December 1.
Though it doesn't quite fit in scale or style, Mecha Knuckles does have a bit of resemblance to the "mech armor" series of LEGO sets for the Marvel and Star Wars lines. So not completely unfamiliar territory.
Now if only we could get THIS as an Emerald power in Superstars.
