Lego Minecraft

You guys know me, I'm a bit of a LEGO enthusiast. Now that we've got that out of the way, I'd also like to tell you I'm a bit of a MINECRAFT enthusiast. Alright, good. One more quick note before the body of this post: Do you remember my LEGO Zelda post I did? It talked about a site called LEGO CUUSOO, where you could submit ideas to LEGO and try to let them become real sets and themes! It's gaining popularity quickly, and it's the reason you're seeing the image above you. You see, a while back Mojang submitted the idea for a LEGO MINECRAFT theme, seeing as it's a cool idea. They did a blog post about it, and then suddenly... BOOM! 10,000 supporters in about 48 hours. LEGO acknowledged the fan base and said they'd get to work on it, and post an update in 2012. On New Year's Day, It was announced that LEGO approved the project and MINECRAFT would be released in LEGO form. But how would it look? We had to wait a while to find out, but what you see above you is LEGO CUUSOO Product #003, Minecraft Mini World. It's available for pre-order now, so pounce on this opportunity, so they don't run out. The set comes with the materials to build four changeable sets, and a mini buildable creeper and Steve.

How will this sell? Well, from what I can dig up, CUUSOO sells it's products exclusively on it's site, so don't be looking for in your local Toys-R-Us. However, it is possible that they could sell them in official LEGO Store, however, I'm not positive on that either. What I can tell you, is that this is one of the coolest things LEGO's done in a while, and I can't wait to get mine (craft).
