Remember the LEGO CUUSOO Minecraft project? It was the first LEGO project that made it to 10,000 votes after the CUUSOO website opened, thanks to the support of all the enthusiastic Minecraft fans. (You can read more about the project here: CUUSOO Minecraft First View)
If you have been waiting for the LEGO Minecraft set, it just showed up on Amazon.com, and should also be available on LEGO.com soon. The price listed on Amazon right now is $34.99, which was the price announced originally, so no discount yet. However Amazon charges no shipping and no tax to most states, so this would still be a decent deal if you want to get it now.
If you are not planning to get the #21102 LEGO Minecraft set at full price but you are interested to buy it at some point, I would still put it on my watch-list or bookmark the Amazon page, as Amazon is well known for putting items on sale pretty fast and for deep discounts.
Some people believe that the LEGO and Minecraft combination is a match made in heaven. I can’t comment on that as I don’t play Minecraft, but we should be able to see soon enough if the Minecraft community indeed embraces the actual set just released. If the first LEGO Minecraft set does well, perhaps LEGO will add additional modules to the line, which would be nice for Minecraft fans for the sets, and for LEGO fans for the parts. 😉
If the LEGO Minecraft set doesn’t do well, we should expect prices to fall, which would be really sweet for LEGO fans in general as the set contains some very nice basic pieces any LEGO-builder would love to have.
As an interesting tidbit; LEGO has released some additional images by the LEGO Concept Lab team using six LEGO Minecraft Micro World sets, giving you an idea how much the LEGO Minecraft world can be built up, using extra sets. Looks pretty impressive to me! 😛
So head over to Amazon.com to check it out. It seems whichever way LEGO Minecraft goes (susseccful or not so) we will be getting lots of tiny plates and tiles – a dream of LEGO mosaic and LEGO micro builders. What do you think? Share your thoughts in the comment section below! 😉

Cool. seems small for34.99 though. 😉
(Never played Minecraft before though!!!)
Nace, the price per part comes out to 7 cents a piece, which is pretty standard for LEGO sets. You could say that they are all tiny pieces, but actually small tiles and plates are quite expensive and hard to find. So yeah, as I said; this is a great set for mosaic and micro builders as well, even if they are not into Minecraft. 😉
If it wasn’t for money limitations I’d definitely have this set soon …….( I have got to stop changing my mind about sets to buy right before I order them ). If you have never played Minecraft I feel very sorry for you. It’s basically LEGO in graphic form ( with ten million weird new things ). ( not quite as immersive in my opinion though as having an unlimited pieces and a plan to build something awesome. ) ( I like parentheses )
the price is high but i think it is cool
Oh My brick!!! Is amazing like a lot!!! Wish could have but saving money for 4207.(The lego city parking lot)
Ya, saving my money for LOTR!!!
Sorry for being off subject, but on LEGO.com they have the next movie for the LOTR sets! It’s about the Orc Forge. There’s three more about, Gandalf Arrives, The Mines Of Moria, and Attack On Weathertop. 😎
Oh, that actually looks really great! Would make a nice post for the weekend. Thanks for the heads up! (BTW, we do have a whole LOTR section, so you might post related news there.) 😉
Okey Dokey. LOTR is how I found the website!!! 😀
Always nice to meet another LOTR fan! 😀
somebody get ride of this.
I’m actually a big fan of Minecraft myself. Love the game, and it’s strikingly similar resemblance to tiny LEGOs mashed together to make blocks is stunningly amazing! And for a LEGO fan out there who would like to give Minecraft a try, here are the pros and cons:
Pros: You can use your imagination to do anything you want with it (like LEGOs, except you can’t run out of the building blocks in Minecraft). One day you can build a skyscraper, and the next day you can build a mansion, with the unlimited amount (that is for creative mode, but it’s different in survival mode, you have to hunt and find your resources) of blocks right at your mouses control. You can also have multiple people play with you. You can hunt together, build together, mine together, all sorts of stuff! Oh, and at night, monsters come out and try to hunt you and kill you (if in survival), so you have to make a shelter in this blocky world before that happens! Your imagination makes the limit 🙂
Cons: EXTREMELY ADDICTING. You might not want to leave your computer before you complete your treehouse or castle.
So, if you love building with Lego bricks, you will definetly love Minecraft! (You have to buy the game. Not to get it in stores (like Gamestop or such) but you buy it to download it, once you’ve registered an account)

Anonymous Ninjago & Minecraft Fan, that’s a great review! Yeah, I have read that Minecraft can be very addicting. As far as video-games go, the concept is actually really nice – no blowing things up – which is a refreshing change. 😉
Personally I don’t play video-games because I’m on the computer already for work. So for me to play on the computer also would be like torture. That’s why I like to build with real LEGO. But I do see the appeal of Minecraft and why it has such a strong fan-base. 😀
Maybe you could give it a try one day- I think for a LEGO fan like you, you could really like the gane. Not forcing you to, but just sayin’ 😀

(Also, I’d like to be a contributor to the site. How can I do this?)
Anonymous, sure you can be a contributor! You do have a great writing-style. 😉
Just write up your first post and email it to me at admin@theBrickBlogger.com. Please write it as a plain Word document, and attach any pictures (you can make notes in the article where the pictures go). There should be at least one picture or video included. (You can also use other people’s / website’s pictures and videos as long as you link to them and give them credit.) I will take care of any editing and the formatting for publication.
With your first article you will be a guest-author (you can link your author’s name to your own website, BrickLink Store, Gallery, or wherever you like, or just leave it without a link). With 3 articles you will be promoted to an official TBB Contributor with your own Contributors Page, which will become the hub of your own TBB presence.
Once you do the first article you will see it is not difficult at all. Any questions just email me. 🙂

It is going to be a lego store exclusive.
Tydroid, I don’t think the Minecraft set will be available at TRU. It is an exclusive set, so you should be able to find it at LEGO stores, the Online LEGO Shop, and of course Amazon. 🙂
