Minecraft official LEGO set ready for pre-order

More than 5 million people have been playing with virtual building blocks in Minecraft. This summer, they’ll get the opportunity to manually assemble 480 physical pieces with LEGO Minecraft Micro World. The $34.99 toy set comes with four customizable vignettes of Minecraft-themed LEGO pieces and two adorable figures, game character Steve and a Creeper (this monster’s tendency to spontaneously explode remains limited to the computer game).

LEGO Minecraft sets to become a reality, as project gets green light

Seemingly a match made in heaven, a proposed collaboration between LEGO and hit indie game Minecraft has now been given the official green light.  A proposal for the idea was submitted by Minecraft developer Mojang back in December, and LEGO has now announced that it is “developing a concept that celebrates the best aspects of building with the LEGO system and in Minecraft.”

Hands up for Lego Minecraft

The indie game sensation Minecraft may soon be immortalized with its very own LEGO sets, if developer Mojang gets its wish. Mojang has submitted a proposal for LEGO Minecraft on the Cuusoo community site, which could see the dream collaboration become a reality.
