Here it is. The first official LEGO set to be approved and manufactured via the Cuusoo voting system: LEGO Minecraft. It’s the real deal, and it’s available for pre-order now.
Entitled “LEGO Minecraft Micro World,” this 480-piece set is available for pre-order now at Jinx.com. It will run you $34.99 (or €34.99), and will ship sometime this Summer. It will also be sold in the LEGO online store this Summer, and some LEGO retail stores.
The set includes four “cubic modular vignettes” that can be combined to form a larger vignette. Surfaces of the modules come off to reveal the mines and resources underneath. One Minecraft block is represented as a 1×1 LEGO brick with a flat tile on top. The set also includes two “Micro Mobs” (the Minecraft version of minifigures), Steve and a Creeper.
Here’s LEGO’s official description:
Help Steve survive his first night in a strange new world. Avoid the Creeper and start mining for resources that will help you survive and thrive. Configure your four micro-scale LEGO Minecraft modules any way you like. Build your own mines and hills, and expand your world with multiple sets. Includes four LEGO Minecraft modules, hidden resources, extra pieces for wood, dirt, & stone, and two “Micro Mobs”: Steve and a Creeper.
As part of the LEGO Cuusoo terms, Minecraft creator (and this toy set’s sponsor) Mojang is entitled to 1% of the proceeds from every set sold. Mojang has pledged to donate its proceeds to charity.
