LEGO Minecraft has been doing exceptionally well for LEGO, and thus releasing a large exclusive set does make sense. The village setup looks great, and like with all LEGO Minecraft sets, there is a lot of room for reconfiguring the layout. The color selection is very pleasing, and the minifigures are great. The price is on the high side based on the piece count, but you get a good amount of large plates and other very useful elements. Also the villager minifigs look very interesting.

Looks nice, especially the colors. Like a real village. But the price! $50 less this would have been more reasonable. LEGO has been really raising their prices, aren’t they?
Yeah, it looks like that, doesn’t it? 😐
Haha I wish it was just a matter of “picking this up”, the price is a big turnoff for a Minecraft set, not much display value for me but i like the figures. 🙂
I agree about the price. The set doesn’t appear to contain any unique elements besides the new torso piece, so I don’t know why the inflated price. Perhaps it will go on sale. 🙄
Whoa. I don’t play minecraft (except when I’m at my cousins) but this set is so cool!! Looks like a lot of fun to play with and a great addition to line of sets.
UPDATE: The designer video just became available, so I added that to the post. Nice modifications and expansions at the end! 😀
