A Lego game celebrating Sonic the Hedgehog has appeared online ahead of an early official announcement.

Listed for resale on the popular Mercado Libre online marketplace, the set appears to recreate the iconic Green Hill Zone from Sonic the Hedgehog, complete with gold rings and Dr. Robotnik.

The set is part of the Lego Ideas brand, which allows fans to create their own dream brick sets and submit them to the Lego website for approval. If the sets receive more than 10,000 votes, they are considered for launch as a real product.

Earlier this year, Lego confirmed that its review board had given the green light to Sonic Mania – Green Hill Zone, a 24-year-old fan of Viv Grannell.

“We are excited to collaborate with Sega and Viv to bring one of the most iconic gaming characters and brands to life through Lego bricks based on Viv’s colorful and fun creation,” he said.

Lego said it was still working on the final product design, pricing and availability for the Sonic set and would share more details in the future.

Ideas’ original design includes over 700 pieces and scenery inspired by Sonic’s Green Hill Zone, as well as an Egg Robot Mech and Badniks from the Sega series.

Speaking about the winning idea, Viv Grannell said: “I have invested in the world of Sonic for almost my entire life, and it fits so perfectly with the Lego system that I spent about a year gathering support to make it happen. “

Earlier this week, German retailer Wagner also briefly listed a Lego Horizon Zero Dawn Tallneck set, though it did not include an image of the product that was no longer listed.
