First Look At LEGO Minecraft, Available For Pre-Order

February 16, 2012


Here's the first official look at the upcoming LEGO Minecraft set and, SURPRISE!: It's every bit as blocky as you imagined. Unless you imagined it round like a balloon, in which case you're a very special person. Like, probably should have repeated a grade special. The 430-piece set actually divides into four smaller sections so you can see inside your mine or whatever and use it as a hiding spot to stash money/drugs from your roommates.

Help Steve survive his first night in a strange new world. Avoid the creeper and start mining for resources that will help you survive and thrive. Configure your four micro-scale LEGO Minecraft modules any way you like. Build your own mines and hills, and expand your world with multiple sets. Includes four LEGO Minecraft modules, hidden resources, extra pieces for wood, dirt, and stone, two "Micro Mobs" Steve and a creeper.

The set ships this summer, but is available for $35 pre-order now to guarantee you get your hands on one. To guarantee you get your hands on me? Nothing, I'm not for sale. "Really? Because your tag says CLEARANCE". a terrible slave.

  • Wait, so it's just a set of those impossible to separate flat pieces? Count me out.

  • Cliffto Floyd

    will these be avalable in stores?

  • Steven Clark

    Isnt Minecraft just Lego for a PC?

  • I'm disappointed the chunks are 12x12 instead of 16x16

  • So in other words, they're taking regular old Legos, slapping the name "Minecraft" on the box they come in, and selling them as though they're something special? I was using Legos to do the things I do in Minecraft years before Minecraft was even developed. As a matter of fact, when I first played Minecraft, my initial reaction was "Oh, this is kinda cool. Its like playing with Legos on the computer, but on a larger scale and without all the physical clutter." Now they're just taking Minecraft, shrinking it down, and adding the physical clutter back into the equation. Definitely worth paying for.*

    Does STEVE even fit in the house?

    when you scroll up and down steve and the creeper look like they move

    Why not just PLAY Minecraft?

    Congratz for not being a firstard.

    Also you can see why Lego dived on this. Didn't exactly require much in the way of innovation, really, considering it looks just like that fan-made one that GW showed us when this upcoming set was first mentioned. 

  • wonder what that creepers up to...
