Official Lego Minecraft set ships this summer

This summer, Lego will ship an official Minecraft "Micro World" set, with blocks designed to look like the primitives used for construction in the popular game/virtual playset.

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.

J!NX : Minecraft LEGO Exclusive


  1. lame. This is like selling Cheerio themed Cheerios. Shame that this beat out awesome ideas like Back to the Future Lego sets, Shaun of the Dead Lego sets, or Legend of Zelda sets which were all submitted ideas.

    1.  I hate the direction LEGO has been going for the past couple decades, but I would totally buy a Legend of Zelda set if it was based on the old, blocky NES Zelda rather than the newer games that wouldn’t fit the style as well. Minecraft, though… not only does it seem like a redundant idea, it doesn’t even look like they did a very good job of it.

  2. The obvious joke is that Minecraft Lego already exists and is called Lego, but it’s always good to see sets that allow for actual building rather than just assembling huge plastic components to make two kinds of robot.

  3. In this particular picture, the thin dirt layer everywhere plus the grass capping a stone block spoil it for me.

    If you’re going to try to sell Minecraft Lego, make it look like a world that could be generated in Minecraft! Attention to detail is always important in all things.

    Still a cool idea though.

  4. Just another whirr of the (sub)cultural blender. After all, everything should be mixed with everything else and because you can do something definitely means that you should, right?

  5. Lol, this just demonstrates how misguided the whole mainstream gaming industry has become… When Lego Online was first announced we naturally expected a game where you can build your own virtual world and share it with friends.
    Instead we got lego-themed Wow with levels and quests-on-rails. Of course, it flopped.
    And then came Minecraft which IS Lego online. Done by one guy in a basement.. and based on what? Lego.

    And now Lego is using Minecraft for inspiration… Duh?

    Jeez what is wrong with those big IP corps? They could have had the stars, one of the strongest IPS in the world, they basically INVENTED pre-PC sandbox toy genre and then … did a WoW clone? Pissing on everything Lego stands for? The creativity, the openness.. Everything? For a myopically directed storyline “product”? Makes me sick. Really.

    Draw your own parallels with another big IP storyline-based mmo “product” that has come out recently.

  6. Just showed this pic to my former Lego-building, now self-proclaimed Minecraft addict 10-year-old son. He burst out laughing. I asked him if he would play with the Lego kit and he said he’d rather play “real” Minecraft.  

  7. Surprise…

    Except the random iron crosses, isn’t this minecraft  lego set just the thing lego has been in the first way?

    Looks suspiciously like the basic legos that were all that was available when I started playing lego. 50 years ago…

    Next came windows (not the OS) and the whole thing got out of hand.

  8. I like how the set is divided up into four ‘chunks’. Some make fun now, but you KNOW this will lead to massive Minecraft-based Lego creations. I want to see a Lego derp-tower. Or a Lego landscape with a missing chunk error.

    I’m just disappointed there are no redstone pieces which let you construct simple working circuits.

  9. I was actually holding out on spending my 70 bucks worth of lego store gift card which I had intended to use the brick store to make my own minecraftian set but I can see now that there’s no point waiting for the “official” set.  If they had used the game’s default textures on the bricks that would be worth it definitely but this just looks like crap. :/
