The results for that round were announced in September 2020…except for the Sonic Mania design, which required further review for the team to determine if it could be made or not. This meant an extra four months to wait to find out its fate.
Now the September 2020 results have been announced, and it has also been revealed that the Sonic Mania design has finally been approved! This means that it will go through LEGO’s own designers to see if there are any changes or improvements they want to make to the design before putting it in production, then it will hit store shelves where you can add LEGO Sonic to your collection (especially if you missed out on the LEGO Dimensions level pack way back in 2016).
A huge congratulations to Toastergrl, who I imagine must be chuffed about her idea being made a reality given her history with both Sonic and LEGO. Everyone else might want to leave some money aside to pick this up when this becomes available!
On this much shorter episode of Sonic Talk, Jason discusses Apex Legends (that other game with Roger Craig Smith) only for GX to suffer a power outage which results in about half an hour of our discussion being cut off. We still have plenty of Sonic news and a review of the first dozen issues of IDW’s Sonic the Hedgehog. So prepare for 45 minutes of Sonic-y goodness!
LEGO and Sonic the Hedgehog. Now there’s two things we never thought we’d see officially put together in the same product. Sure, maybe it’s not as earth-shattering a crossover as the Mario & Sonic series (I mean, who’d have ever seen that one coming, and at the Olympic Games no less?!), but it’s just as mind-bogglingly unthinkable. But, then again, almost anything is possible in the crazy world of TT Games’ LEGO Dimensions. You know what’s even crazier though? This bonkers mash-up of blue blurs and bricks is arguably the best thing to come out of Sonic’s 25th anniversary celebrations this year.
Ever faffed about with those LEGO building blocks when you were a kid? Did you find yourself creating crappy, contorted (yellow) versions of cartoon characters and super heroes you saw on the TV? Well, now that you’re a teenager with nothing better to do (or an adult with nothing better to do, except your job), you can revisit those powerful Danish bricks of creation and make your very own Sonic the Hedgehog!
Gaming blog Kotaku has an excellent post on how to grab a computer game character sprite, size it up for LEGO-ssimilation, and glue your masterpiece together so you can hang it on your wall. The example they use here is, funnily enough, Sonic the Hedgehog, albeit a squishy one that we may take to the gym to get straightened out a bit. If you have kids, it’s also a great way to bond with the little critters. Or, if you’re having a turbulent relationship, create with your wife for some awesome divorce-repellant building fun. LEGO heals all wounds.
