There Will Be Official Minecraft Lego Sets

The most popular Lego-like video game ever is getting official Legos. We're getting Minecraft Lego sets, people.

Back in December, the people who make Minecraft petitioned LegoCuusoo, an official branch of the Lego company, to make some Minecraft Lego. That's what the Cuusoo people are there for. You ask. They count the amount of people who petition.

Today, the people at Lego Cuussoo said there is enough support (more than 10,000 people on board!) and the idea passes muster:

We're happy to announce that the Minecraft project on LEGO CUUSOO has passed the LEGO review and we are now developing a concept that celebrates the best aspects of building with the LEGO system and in Minecraft. We can't wait to show it to you-but it isn't ready just yet. These things take time, so we appreciate your patience. More details are to come.

What'll we get? Hopefully some sets that look as terrific as the concepts that Mojang submitted to get the ball rolling. We've got images of two of them here, one up top from Michael Thomas (suparMacho) and one here from the talented koalaexpert.

Some people hope that their favourite games will be turned into major motion pictures? For others, I think a Lego set will do just fine.

    The highest order of autism right here.


    This is dumb. Minecraft is lego pretty much lol oh well enjoy suckers!

    Lego, not Legos. Do you say Sheeps as well?

      Firstly, there is no grammatical rule that says a proper noun cannot be used to refer to a countable object. “Mac” is a proper noun. It’s a name of a product but it is also used to refer to the individual Macintosh machines, i.e., “Macs”. Think of car companies, like Honda, BMW, and Porsche. When we refer to their cars, we say, “Hondas”, “BMWs”, and “Porsches”. BMW’s own site uses the plural form: “Today’s BMWs are equipped with...” And, Porsche’s own site says, “Barely any two Porsches are identical.”

      So, I would say “LEGOs” is perfectly fine if you are referring to the pieces of LEGO. It is however wrong to say “LEGOs”, if you are referring to the brand/company.

      And, this should be a sparate issue from how the company officially uses the term for their marketing and communication. They could have their own policies but that does not make “LEGOs” grammatically incorrect. The correct use of a word is not determined by the person who coined it.

    Wasn't this announced a while back?

    I think it is smart that LEGO waited until Minecraft reaches gold first. The game had made several changes graphically over the months and years of Beta, and it was best for them to start making plastic after the game stabilises.

    But how are they going to recreate the look of Minecraft in Lego? How are they going to recreate all the identical yet different coloured cubes with lego?

    Seriously, Minecraft IS lego. This is like creating a Lego version of the Lego Batman video game.
