The first images of Lego figures of Knuckles, Shadow, and Rouge have appeared online.
Thanks to Instagram account 1414falconfan, we have the first look at the characters that will appear in upcoming Lego Sonic the Hedgehog sets.
It’s unclear which sets the characters will appear in, but it seems to confirm an upcoming wave of Lego from the Sega franchise. Following traditional Lego release dates, it’s possible that the sets could be released in early January.

Four sets in the Lego Sonic line were released in August:
- Sonic’s Green Hill Zone Loop Challenge – £99.99 / £94.99, contains Sonic, Amy, a loop, Eggman, two Badniks and four animals
- Sonic’s Speed Sphere Challenge – $34.99 / £24.99, contains Sonic, a spring, an arch, a ramp, one Badnik and one animal
- Tails’ Workshop and Tornado Plane – $39.99 / £37.99, contains Sonic, Tails, a workshop, a plane and one Badnik
- Amy’s Animal Rescue Island – $49.99 / £46.99, contains Amy, Tails, a piece of Green Hill Zone scenery, one Badnik and three animals
These sets are largely playsets and are meant to connect with one another, however fans have been vocal in their desire for more complex sets from the theme, much like Lego Super Mario Bros. theme which has seen both playsets and complex adult-aimed sets.
“At Sega, we strive to create memorable experiences with our licensing partners that fans will cherish for years to come,” Sega of America chief business and brand officer Ivo Gerscovich said in a statement.
“The Lego Group is the leader in play, and the perfect partner to bring exciting stories, iconic characters and environments from the Sonic universe to life in fans’ living rooms globally.
“Through our creative collaboration with the Lego Group, Sonic fans of all generations can use their imaginations to play out their favourite Sonic moments, and we can’t wait to see their awesome creations.”
