Back in February, LEGO Ideas approved Viv Grannell’s Sonic Mania Green Hill Zone set featuring classic Sonic, the imposing Eggman Robot boss, the Hard Boiled Heavies, and modular chunks of Green Hill’s iconic landscape, and while we don’t have a release timetable for the set yet, it turns out we missed some small details back when Bits N’ Bricks, an official LEGO games podcast, did an episode on the Sonic Mania set and the LEGO Ideas process in February 2021.
In an interview with LEGO Group designer Samuel Johnson, he notes that the Mania build is a bit simpler and geometric in structure than most Ideas sets, in line with the series itself. Johnson hopes that this relationship with SEGA does give way to more partnerships as it did with Ghostbusters and Minecraft. Although changes normally occur between the original Ideas pitch and the final released product, LEGO Group’s designers work with the original Ideas submitter (as well as license holders) to make sure it maintains the spirit that the designer originally pitched and was voted on. Later, the team interviews John Choon, SEGA’s Director of Marketing, who expressed interest in seeing other characters and worlds represented as Lego projects in the future.
While the podcast episode doesn’t reveal anything concrete about the set itself or any future plans, it does highlight the LEGO Ideas process and all of the parties that need to be involved to fully realize an Ideas set.
For those who do not know, June is known to many as PRIDE month. A month where people unite to promote, stand up for and celebrate the rights and history of LGBTQ people. You may wonder what this has to do with Sonic the Hedgehog, so please let me explain. Continue reading Being LGBT in the Sonic Community ?️?
For those of you who don’t know, SammyClassicSonicFan (Sammy Harbors) was a kid on YouTube who use to have very powerful raging rants on YouTube about our favourite blue mascot. In fact they were so popular he sort of become a “internet meme celebrity”. Ever seen any GIF, or meme with the word frick? That’s him. However one day he just sort of gave up and quit the internet completely, until a year or so again when he restarted his video uploading on a infrequent basis. While the personality is borderline treated as a fictional myth at this point, he is a real person. And even though he is a very introverted person, he once sat down with us for a chat about all these shenanigans from his own personal perspective.
Have you ever wondered if the rants were genuine or played up for camera? Have you ever pondered if he’s seen Chadtronic and what he thinks of him? Maybe you are even curious what he is up to these days or why he stopped originally? Well this will have all your queries put to rest! We also test him on his Sonic trivia in a fun little quiz, because it only seems fair we find out how well he truly knows that fricking hedgehog. This was an interview we recorded a year and a half or so ago, but I think it’s important to remind people that he is just as human as the rest of us. What better time for a throwback Thursday!
For fans living under a rock, Sonic Time Twisted is an unofficial Sonic the Hedgehog game that has been in development as a pet project for 12 years. But unlike a lot of fan game projects, this one was finished!
To celebrate today’s release of the long awaited project, we sat down with the creator to discuss what is needed to push through to the end of such a long running piece of work. Not only that but we also discuss our thoughts on the finished project and if it is worth your time downloading! We also discover that the OST features a track very similar to another fans work in 2010, what does our (half hearted) investigation discover!?
We also cover the last weeks news in Sonic (oh my did a lot happen this week!).
Have you played the game yet? Let us know what you think in the comments!
Is the future at risk? And what is to blame for the downfall of the long running licensed comic? Skip our news discussion (including someone going to court for using a hedgehog as a weapon) and listen to us chat all things Archie at 36:00! Let us know what you think in the comments.
We also get to learning with David The Lurker as we find out if one of our hosts use to visit Sonic Passion!
As you most probably heard from yesterdays article, Dan Sheridan has now left SEGA Europe. At just over a year in the role of Europe’s Community Manager, it is quite impressive what he achieved in such a relatively small time frame. Having spent a trip with him in San Diego after winning last years contest to find Europe’s biggest Sonic fan, it only makes sense that todays opinion revolves around the man and his Sonic hat. (Skip to roughly 37 minutes in if you wish to skip the news and head straight to our Sheridan discussion)
This is also the start of a new season of The Opinion Zone, which brings a whole new range of segments for your enjoyment. In fact, we are looking for you guys to help us with a future show piece! If you think you have quite an interesting Sonic/Sega related fact or anecdote about yourself or something you once did (can be light hearted, dark, funny, strange, really anything!) then send us an email to thesonicshowchannel (at) gmail (dot) com. You must be happy to talk to us on the podcast to be applicable,
