Lego has announced a release date and the official pictures for the 6 new minifigure-scale Minecraft sets. 4 sets have been released in the past, but they were not minifigure-scale so no minifigures were included. This is a great step forward in the Lego Minecraft theme, and I expect these too fly off the shelves even faster than the previous 4 did. Here is a list of names and info on the coming sets:
The Cave – $19.99 – 249 pieces – Includes Steve, a zombie, and a spider
The Farm – $29.99 – 262 pieces – Includes Steve, a skeleton, a cow, and a sheep
The First Night – $39.99 – 408 pieces – Includes Steve, a Creeper, and a pig
Crafting Box – $49.99 – 518 pieces – Includes Steve, a skeleton, and a mooshroom
The Ender Dragon – $69.99 – 634 pieces – Includes Steve, 3 Endermen, and The Ender Dragon
The Mine – $109.99 – 922 pieces – Includes Steve, a Creeper, a zombie, a skeleton, and a spider.
So there is your list. These will all be available for purchase on November 15th, 2014. Here is a link to the Minecraft Lego Shop page. (http://shop.lego.com/en-US/Minecraft-ByTheme) The Crafting Box is probably the most unique of the sets. The $50 set includes 518 assorted pieces that can be used to build a variety of ideas and suggestions that are given to you in the instruction/idea book. My thoughts on the sets are that they are for the most part reasonably priced, although The Mine set seems to be about $10 high. I also think that there are a lot of Steve minifigures as he is included in every set. If you plan on purchasing all these sets, plan on having a lot of Steve figs. Overall, this is an amazing wave, and although I am not a Minecraft enthusiast, these sets are very intriguing!
