Minecraft Lego sets approved

Lego kits based on Mojang's sandbox game pass review; concept that "celebrates best aspects" of Lego and Minecraft now being developed.

Last month, Minecraft studio Mojang launched a campaign through Lego's Cuussoo label to have a set based on the game enter production. The project gathered the required 10,000 supporters, and was sent to review in late December. Now, the Lego jury has reached a decision, voting to green-light the initiative.

Lego Minecraft sets are soon to be spilled all over the floor.

Though the Minecraft Lego set has been approved, it's not ready to be released just yet. Next up in the process is creating a concept for the project. Writing on the Cuusoo blog, Lego said, "We are now developing a concept that celebrates the best aspects of building with the Lego system and in Minecraft."

According to Lego, "These things take time, so we appreciate your patience." The company said more details about the Lego Minecraft sets will be shared at a later date. For more on Minecraft, check out GameSpot's review.

@nelshrig To buy the actual PC game you have to go to the Minecraft website. As far as I know there is no other way besides the app store for the iphone version.

I got excited when i first heard about it, but after looking at the picture it looks like they're just giving you the same legos you already have...

You guys mess around with this for another six months and release them late summer, and no one will be interested anymore. Miss the "interest window" and sales go to the crapper.

Mineception? lol The whole reason I play minecraft is I don't feel like cleaning up legos after my 4 year old... or myself.

Lego 3D is a really short-sighted name for Minecraft, but ignorance comes naturally to a lot of people, so it's almost excusable in this instance. Almost.

Seems to me they could just sell a freestyle box full of squares with some stickers.. Bu then devious kids might use them to build something not envisioned by Lego's set designers.. So I guess they'd have to come painted from the factory.

Why why why. There is absolutely NO point in this. THE GAME IS ALREADY LEGOS: THE GAME.

Meh. Minecraft is nothing more than a knockoff of Voxelstein 3D. :roll:

I thought the point of the game was that it was like a Lego world you could build and run around properly in 3D... just building it in Lego sounds like a step in the wrong direction.

The previous article about Mojang not being indie anymore is making much more sense...

:o , was my first reaction, I love legos and would love to have a little lego creeper... heh heh; I might have to just pick up a few peices of this set, sweet. @Taix34 most likely they will be lego figures, ;) Edit update: Actually now that I think of what you meant, they may do both, Creeper figures and buildable creepers, both would be sweet.

This is bound to get the xzibit seal of approval. "yo dawg, I heard you like building blocks, so we built your building blocks to build blocks for building, so you can build building blocks while you build with blocks."
