A very interesting development of the LEGO Minecraft product-line is LEGO’s recent announcement that they are planning to release standard minifigure-scale LEGO Minecraft sets. 🙂
I find this news particularly noteworthy because the original idea for LEGO Minecraft that came out of LEGO CUUSOO was actually for minifigure-scale sets. Although LEGO gave green-light to production, they changed the sets to micro-scale. Initially LEGO and Minecraft fans expressed some disappointment, but nonetheless the LEGO Minecraft sets have been hugely popular. I myself have all three sets and I like them quite a bit – if for nothing else, the excellent selection and unique colors of small LEGO elements.
I guess after realizing that LEGO Minecraft is indeed a winner, LEGO decided to upscale the sets to minifigure size. Right now the LEGO design team is still in the middle of development, and here comes the second interesting piece of news; LEGO is reaching out to the LEGO and Minecraft community for input. They call this the LEGO Minecraft Co-Build Project. Take a look at the video-announcement below:
So if you are interested to share your thoughts with the LEGO Minecraft design team, head over to the LEGO Minecraft Facebook Page. Right now they are taking suggestions for developing the Creeper. They share some early explorations of the character, and they would like to know which one of their Creeper interpretation you like the best. 😀
