LEGO fans have had a wide swath of licensed sets to choose from (including a certain Italian plumber), today we learned a familiar IP will be racing to store shelves this Fall. SEGA?s blue speedster Sonic the Hedgehog will receive 4 new sets when the leaves start changing.
The first Sonic the Hedgehog set started as a fan designed creation from the Danish toymaker?s LEGO Ideas platform and it seems like sales must have been sufficient for the storied brickmaker to seek out the Japanese game maker for larger collaboration.
