Only further hyping the upcoming release of Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, Sega has paired up with the construction toy makers at Erector to release a new line of licensed Sonic the Hedgehog Erector sets. How frickin’ sweet is that? I would have killed for these when I was younger. Oh who am I kidding, I want them right now!

Available now exclusively at Toys ‘R’ Us, Erector’s Sonic the Hedgehog collection includes three play sets and two vehicles inspired by the previous Sonic racing title, ranging in price from as low as $14.99 up to $79.99.

Each set comes with character figures, pull back motors, easy-to-follow instructions, stickers, tools, and a collectible Chaos Emerald. The individual sets can also be combined together to create even larger tracks for Sonic and Knuckles to cruise around on.

The available play sets include:

- Sonic and Knuckles Chemical Plant Racing Tracks – Sonic and Knuckles go head to head in a race against one another at the Chemical Plant.

- Sonic and Green Hill Ramp Playset – Fans can cruise into the Green Hill Zone with Sonic and his Green Hill Ramp Playset as they construct Sonic’s car and playset to perform amazing stunts. The Sonic racing car features pull-back action to race along the buildable track and launch through a challenging stunt ring.

- Sonic and Casino Street Playset – Kids can enter into the Casino Zone world to perform amazing stunts as they build Sonic and his incredible Casino Street environment.

- Sonic and Speed Star – Now kids can build the iconic Speed Star car for fun and adventures of their own with Sonic the Hedgehog from the Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing video game.
