New Lego Minecraft Summer 2015 Sets

New Lego Minecraft Sets 2015

There is going to be a new Lego Minecraft wave of sets released. The summer 2015 sets will arrive in August (although you will probably see them pop up a week or two early). It looks like there will be 2 smallish sets, and 2 large sets. It is interesting that there are no small impulse buy sets. The Lego Minecraft line is not the most affordable, and this release continues that trend. Two of these new sets will see the first Minifigures of Alex. The female counterpart to Steve. Maybe someday she will be able to sell a set all my herself. The new Snow Golem looks extremely goofy, and it’s good to see the famous Minecraft Wolf represented. The big mystery (at least for me) is the 154 graffitied all over the Nether set. If you know what it means, let me know in the comments.

The Dungeon (21119) is the smallest set and comes with Steve and 2 Zombies.

The Snow Hideout (21120) is a medium sized modular set with Steve, a Creeper and the all new Snow Golem.

The Desert Outpost (21121) is a large modular set, with Alex, Steve, a Wolf, and 2 Skeletons.

Finally, the big set this summer is The Nether Fortress. Featuring Alex, Steve, a Zombie Pigman, a Ghast, and Blaze.Lego Minecraft The Nether Fortress 21122

Be on the lookout in August for these new Lego Minecraft sets.

Lego Minecraft, The Cave (21113) Parts & Set Review

newelementary's Lego Minecraft 21113 TheCave Review

The new Lego Minecraft sets are almost here, and a bunch of early reviews are showing up. The sets look fun and are somewhat accurate to the video game. But, do they bring anything new to the crafting table? Thanks to New Elementary we know the answer is yes! New Elementary specializes in writing about new and exciting Lego pieces or elements. Their new review of Lego Minecraft (2113) The Cave goes into everything new about the set. They theorize that: “If these Minecraft sets ever go on offer they will disappear before you can say scalper.

The most obvious of the new pieces all revolve around the Minifigures. In The Cave, you get new square Minecraft themed heads for Steve, the Creeper, and the Spider. For some people the new design is extremely weird, but it is pointed out that the standard round Minifigure head is weird too (when you think about it). Most people will get used to it over time.

The most exciting thing about The Cave, according to New Elementary, is a single new Lego piece. A Black Pneumatic T-Bar (6102782, 4697). For many years now this piece has only been available in gray. The new color allows the piece to be used in many more builds, and will blend in much better in most situations. For some people the price of this set will be worth it just for these 3 T-Bars.

Lego Minecraft 2015 Unboxing, Review, and Building Videos

Evantubehd's Lego Minecraft 2015 Crafting Box Review

Lego seems to be doing something a little different this time around. With their new Lego Minecraft 2015 (Minifigure Scale) theme they have been releasing sets early to the fan community for reviews. That is completely normal. What is different is that instead of the usual sites getting the exclusive reviews (which normally focus on the AFOL scene), Lego has sent sets out to sites that target to a younger crowd, and famous Minecraft fans. It seems that Lego understands there are two completely different markets for Lego Minecraft. What is also cool, is that these lucky people are creating really slick video reviews. Here we have EvanTubeHD reviewing most of the upcoming Lego Minecraft 2015 sets. It seems that The Ender Dragon (21117) and The Cave (21113) are still pending review. These sets look a lot bigger when they are finished then expected. I have a feeling we will be seeing a lot more Minecraft stuff from Lego in the future…

Check out these fun video reviews:

New Lego Minecraft 2015, Minifigure Scale Sets

New Lego Minecraft 2015 The Farm and The Cave

The Lego Minecraft theme has been one of the most successful lines. The first few Micro World sets capture the spirit and look of the super popular video game, but the tiny Lego pieces and small size were deterrents to the smallest Lego Minecraft fans (and people with large fingers). The good news is the there is a whole new theme for Lego Minecraft coming in 2015. There will be 6 sets in this release, including a super interesting Crafting Box. This new style of playset reminds me of the more imagination friendly Brick Boxes. This is a really interesting direction to explore, and it will more then likely prove to be very popular.

Official set descriptions for two of these new Lego Minecraft sets have been found:

The Cave (21113)

Venture into The Cave on a dangerous quest for vital resources! Wield the iron pickaxe to dig and battle against hostile zombie and spider mobs. Blast out valuable ores and minerals with the TNT and combine the flowing water and lava to create precious obsidian! When you’re done battling and mining, restore your energy levels with the chest of bread. Proceed with caution! Rebuild the set for more LEGO Minecraft creations! Includes 2 minifigures with assorted accessories: Steve and a zombie, plus a spider

The Farm (21114)

Yield renewable resources with The Farm! You’ll need food to survive, so fence in the livestock and channel the flowing water to nurture the crops. Harvest pumpkins, wheat, sugar cane and carrots. Use the crafting table to create a pumpkin helmet or jack-o-lantern. But watch out for the skeleton with his bow and arrow after nightfall! Rebuild the set for more LEGO Minecraft creations or combine with 21115 The First Night and other sets in the series for an even bigger Minecraft adventure! Includes a Steve minifigure with an accessory, plus a skeleton, cow and a sheep.

New Lego Minecraft Sets (2014): First Details

New Lego Minecraft Sets 2014

Lego is going all in with the Minecraft theme this year. The upcoming Lego Minecraft Microworld: The End (21107) was revealed earlier this year, and is set to hit the market this summer. Now, some leaked release details have revealed six new Lego Minecraft themed sets for the future. Some, or all of these sets may be the official release of the Minecraft Minifigure scale theme. For the past year Lego has been posting regular updates on their Co-Build project over on Facebook, which has been focusing on the Minifig scale. So far, only the set names, release date (November 7th!), and price points have been revealed…

Lego Minecraft: The Cave (21113) — € 19.95
Lego Minecraft: The Farm (21114) — € 29.95
Lego Minecraft: The First Night (21115) — € 39.95
Lego Minecraft: Creative Box (21116) — € 54.95
Lego Minecraft: The Ender Dragon (21117) — € 69.95
Lego Minecraft: The Mine (21118) — € 99.95

Lego Minecraft Micro World The End 21107

The first photo of the new Lego Minecraft Micro World: The End (21107) has been revealed. The new set will be available sometime this summer (2014). The set designer, Steen, is showing off the new set. Which will feature the Endermen and an Ender Dragon. This is the forth set in the line, and if Lego were to discontinue the theme this would be the perfect release. Or, maybe there are still other Minecraft Micro Worlds in the works…

I wonder how this set will fit in with the other Minecraft Micro Worlds.

Lego Minecraft Co-build Holiday Update!

Lego Minecraft Co-build Jungle

Lego has been running a Minecraft Co-build project over on Facebook.  The goal of the project is to create Lego sets in a Minifigure scale Minecraft theme. The Lego designers for this project are working with the community. Minecraft and Lego fans get to vote on various details, such as the shape and articulation of the Creeper, the possible biome settings, etc. One of the huge announcements based on community feedback is that the final sets will have no stickers. Pictured here are two of the “in progress” biomes. A desert/sand set, and a jungle set. Steve is looking pretty good, and sporting a pixelated sword.

Lego has recently released a video update. Recapping some of the recent design decisions and such. It is worth a look, and reveals just how much thought and time goes into designing an official Lego set.

Lego Minecraft: The Village & Lego Minecraft: The Nether Available Now

Lego Minecraft is one of those perfect themes. The two come together to create some of the best Lego sets of all time. The Lego Minecraft Micro World set is easily one of the best selling Lego sets of last year. Often selling out of stock once the set had been replenished. Lego has noticed, and has been continually “reprinting” the original Minecraft set. Now Lego has officially released two new sets in the Minecraft theme. Making this the first CUUSOO project to graduate into a full theme. The new Lego Minecraft: The Village and Lego Minecraft: The Nether are now available through Lego and Amazon.

The early reviews are starting to show up, and are generally forming the opinion that these new sets are great. Perfect for anyone who enjoyed the original. Check out the details at Amazon:
