As we have discussed recently (see: LEGO & Minecraft Extend Partnership), LEGO has been working on a series of minifigures-scale LEGO Minecraft sets, and now we finally have pictures, thanks to a LEGO retailer, Brichsop.nl who posted them early. So let’s take a look! 🙂
➡ #21113 LEGO MINECRAFT THE CAVE – This set includes Steve and a Zombie in minifigure form, a brick-built giant Spider and a bunch of basic elements to build up the cave. Also note the “Build your own creations – inspirations included” sign on the box (and all the other boxes). All of these sets are going to include alternate building ideas, and a lot of basic LEGO elements, so those who prefer old-school LEGO Creator-style building should be very happy. The price of this set should be around $20.
➡ #21114 LEGO MINECRAFT THE FARM – There is so much to like about this set; the brick-built Sheep and Cow, all the veggies and other food, and the colors are really nice too. Of course we also get Steve in minifigure form, and a Skeleton. As in the previous set, LEGO fans who get this set are encouraged to experiment with free-building and inspiration for alternate models are included. This set should be around $30.
➡ #21115 LEGO MINECRAFT THE FIRST NIGHT – This set includes Steve, a Creeper who seems to be brick-built (I’m really not sure on who the legs are attached), and a brick-built Pig. Cute. The house opens up dollhouse-style, and like in the previous sets, alternate building is encouraged. This set should be around $40.
➡ 21116 LEGO MINECRAFT CRAFTING BOX – In my opinion this is one of the most interesting sets in the bunch. This is an 8-in-1 set, meaning there are instructions for eight different models included! I can’t make out everything that’s in the box from just this one picture, but there is definitely a Steve minifigure, a Skeleton and some brick-built creatures. This set should be around $55.
➡ #21117 LEGO MINECRAFT THE ENDER DRAGON – This set includes Steve with Diamond Armor and sword, four brick-built Endermen, and a brick-built Ender Dragon. There is also a LEGO light-brick, and of course inspiration for alternate models like in the other sets. This set should be around $70.
➡ #21118 LEGO MINECRAFT THE MINE – This is the largest of the minifigure-scale LEGO Minecraft sets, and it includes Steve (with armor and sword), a Zombie, a Skeleton, a brick-built Creeper, and a brick-built Spider. This set should be around $100.
When I saw preliminary images of the minifigure size LEGO Minecraft sets I was kind of skeptical, plus I’m also attached to the previously released micro-versions. But now I’m starting to like these larger sets as well – especially the first four on the list. I can’t wait to see them in person. The new sets should be available in November, and in the meantime you can check out the micro-versions at the Online LEGO Shop.
So what do you think? How do you like these larger LEGO Minecraft sets? Are you looking forward to them? Plan to try them out? Feel free to share and discuss in the comment section below! 😉
