People love building real-world things in Minecraft. Buildings, works of art, board games, starships. (Okay, those aren't real. Yet.) However, there's a distressing lack of ways to build Minecraft things in the real world. One brilliant solution gets floated here and it's such a patently obvious idea that you'll howl at the fact that such a thing does not already exist.
Minecraft — like many a successful video game franchise before it — clearly got much of its essence from the creativity first sparked by Legos. With the way that adult Lego enthusiasts help sustain the popularity, I think there'd be enough interest for the Leg powers-that-be to at least do these proposed sets as limited-editions. Then, maybe we could get a Lego Minecraft game built by a team-up of Mojang and Travelers' Tales folks. Hey, if we're going to dream, let's DREAM, damn it.
