Lego recently announced that a few new Minecraft sets will be available later this year. Unlike the last iteration of Minecraft Lego sets, these sets will be full minifig sized sets. Lego and Minecraft go together pretty well because Minecraft is pretty much a simplier, digital version of Lego. Minecraft is so popular that it was recently purchased by Microsoft for $2 billion. If you’re a fan of Lego but have never played Minecraft before, I dare you to sit down and play it in creative mode. Just start digging tunnels and building and you will see why this game is so addictive. Here is the descriptions of a couple of the sets. The above picture is of the farm set.
Venture into The Cave on a dangerous quest for vital resources! Wield the iron pickaxe to dig and battle against hostile zombie and spider mobs. Blast out valuable ores and minerals with the TNT and combine the flowing water and lava to create precious obsidian! When you’re done battling and mining, restore your energy levels with the chest of bread. Proceed with caution! Rebuild the set for more LEGO Minecraft creations! Includes 2 minifigures with assorted accessories: Steve and a zombie, plus a spider
Yield renewable resources with The Farm! You’ll need food to survive, so fence in the livestock and channel the flowing water to nurture the crops. Harvest pumpkins, wheat, sugar cane and carrots. Use the crafting table to create a pumpkin helmet or jack-o-lantern. But watch out for the skeleton with his bow and arrow after nightfall! Rebuild the set for more LEGO Minecraft creations or combine with 21115 The First Night and other sets in the series for an even bigger Minecraft adventure! Includes a Steve minifigure with an accessory, plus a skeleton, cow and a sheep.
