that's about the only way i could see minecraft working, but that is a lot of parts; very expensive. maybe they would make these; it would probably be a lot cheaper.

I really hope I have money when this comes out! I play the game and love it. :)

My only question is what the heck is that giant yellow guy?? There's no such thing in game.

You also have to fight monsters and kill animals for food. In Creative mode, you have unlimited resources, so you can easily build pretty much whatever you want to. You also can't die in it.


You can die in creative mode. look down and keep destroying bricks. Eventually you will fallow below world. If you don't fly soon enough you will die.

Ah, right. I had forgotten about the Void. I meant that you couldn't be hurt by enemies, explosions, fire/lava, falls, or drowning.

Apparently it's official. Lego Minecraft has been approved:

From my comments on the Front Page:
I can't shake the feeling these sets will be limited, perhaps to online outlets such as shop.LEGO.com. I realize Minecraft is fairly popular, but is it popular enough? Or, better yet, will it remain popular over the period of time it takes for these potential LEGO Minecraft sets to see the light of store shelves?

I honestly don't see this being a home run for Lego, but I love the idea (well the idea of people rallying behind a product idea rather than Lego Minecraft itself). Maybe that will change once we actually see the sets.

LEGO Minecraft?
That sounds like.. the worst idea ever. Ironic as well.

Build a construction toy about a building game.. yeah, right-o. LEGO LEGO would basically be the same thing.

Here's an email conversation I recently had with a fellow LEGO enthusiast who also plays Minecraft:

> It just feels redundant, unnecessary, and weird to me. Minecraft was
> basically doing LEGO in a virtual world and now LEGO is going to do
> Minecraft in the real world, which was doing LEGO, from the real world, in
> the virtual world. Is it just me, or are we slowly and unconsciously
> slipping into some kinda metaverse?

>>Yeah, minecraft legos... that's just an obvious attempt at repackaging for
>>money... I want them... I'm not proud of that. But I wouldn't say meta,
>>just circular. Meta will be when they inevitably make Lego lego sets
>>where you use legos to build lego bricks.

I guess I should reply with this:

What I'd love to see:

Minecraft minifigs - Creeper (!!!!), zombie, skeleton (normal LEGO one is fine), spider, cow, pig, chiken

Minecraft tools - Pick, Axe, Hoe, Sword, Shovel

Iconic Items - Crafting table, Forge, Armor

Then just some blocks so I can make something like the scene Solo posted.

Yes, its redundant. Yes, its a little stupid since Minecraft was borrowing from LEGO but with its own distinct art style. I think a LEGO homage to Minecraft, without needing to exactly copy the style would be kinda cool.

In any case it should be the other way around - LEGO should have jumped onto Mojang and used Minecraft as the kick-off point to create what would have been an amazing LEGO game.

I think the model at the beginning of the topic looks great. If only Lego would invest more time into sets for that intermediate builder who wants to have fun with bricks. Give the young and inexperienced the sets with pre-constructed bits and the fan-builders the 10,000 brick mega-models... and inbetween, give the average builder the chance to experiment with colour, texture and shapes, bestowing them with a wealth of bricks of all sizes and shades. Brilliant idea.
