Whenever I put together a review of a building set based on a character or series, I like to include a description of the franchise. This set is not an exception to my rule.
The Popular Video Game For Sega
Sonic The Hedgehog is a Japanese video game created and owned by Sega, and it was released in 1991 on the Sega Genesis console. The game stars Sonic The Hedgehog, who is known as the Sega mascot.

The object of the game is to collect the six Chaos Emeralds and free the animals that are trapped inside Dr. Robotnik’s robots and metal capsules.
The popular character travels through levels such as the Green Hill Zone and Marble Zone to find the emeralds and free his friends. The game is complete when he has collected all six emeralds and defeated the final boss.
Sega has released many additional Sonic The Hedgehog games. In addition, the franchise has released toys, comic books, an animated series and a live-action movie. The franchise is still popular today.

“As for the designs, each one is about 66 mm tall, though Tails is a bit shorter than both Sonic and Eggman and is only 61 mm.”
