Lego to launch Mojang-approved Minecraft set

By on

Well get ready for some mind confusion.LEGO has announced that it will sell a Minecraft licensed construction set, meaning that you can build items now in the game and now in the physical world. Yes, the game that was based on the toy is being built by its maker.

My head already hurts.

Anyway, this was made possible by LEGO’s CUUSOO project, which lets you build your own LEGO sets. The Minecraft model is called the 21102 LEGO Minecraft Micro World kit, where it features four cubic modular vignettes that can be connected to recreate the game. One Minecraft block is equal to one 1×1 ‘square’ on the LEGO plate. You also get two “Micro Mobs” – Steve and a Creeper.

The product will be sold via Mojang’s partner J!NX for US$34.99. You can preorder now, and it will start shipping from Summer 2012. You can find your gallery here.

Thanks for coming onboard!
We're excited to have you.
