Minecraft isn’t a stranger when it comes to Lego, the basis of the game was devised around the idea of Lego pieces, and there have been actual Lego ‘micro worlds’ which offer Lego collectivists and Minecraft fans to play around and create their own mini scaled Minecraft worlds; although it isn’t satisfactory enough for those who want perhaps a bigger scale for their Lego creations.
That’s where these new LEGO Minecraft sets come in; unlike the ‘micro worlds’ these sets provide a variety of pieces from torches, flowers, carrots, fences and a more diverse collection of Lego mini-figures opposed to the ‘micro worlds’ mini-figures.
A Youtube video leaks two images which according to people more qualified in Lego knowledge than me at thebrickfan.com, apparently seems ‘legit’ enough to actually be true and not just fake renders.
Two new sets are expected to come, “The Cave” which revolves around the underground theme in Minecraft, then there’s “The Farm” which is quite self-explanatory. Popular UK toy shop Hamleys‘ provides more detail below:
The Cave (21113):
Venture into The Cave on a dangerous quest for vital resources! Wield the iron pickaxe to dig and battle against hostile zombie and spider mobs. Blast out valuable ores and minerals with the TNT and combine the flowing water and lava to create precious obsidian! When you’re done battling and mining, restore your energy levels with the chest of bread. Proceed with caution! Rebuild the set for more LEGO Minecraft creations! Includes 2 minifigures with assorted accessories: Steve and a zombie, plus a spider
The Farm (21114):
Yield renewable resources with The Farm! You’ll need food to survive, so fence in the livestock and channel the flowing water to nurture the crops. Harvest pumpkins, wheat, sugar cane and carrots. Use the crafting table to create a pumpkin helmet or jack-o-lantern. But watch out for the skeleton with his bow and arrow after nightfall! Rebuild the set for more LEGO Minecraft creations or combine with 21115 The First Night and other sets in the series for an even bigger Minecraft adventure! Includes a Steve minifigure with an accessory, plus a skeleton, cow and a sheep.
Currently there have been a fair amount of complaints of the style for these figures, people have been complaining that there’s something off-putting with each appearance of the blocks and some figures. What do you think though? Does it look good enough to purchase at which Hamleys’ currently lists for £20 and £25?
