    I would have preferred them continuing the Micro Worlds, but I guess they will have more play features and details than the original Micro Worlds. I really hope they also produce more Micro World sets on the side as well.

    How do you feel about this news?

    My nephew will freak out about this, while his twin will probably not like it as he is sick of his brother talking about Minecraft. I have to admit it is kinda neat and makes a lot of sense, LEGO doing this will attract even more kids to the brand I think.

    I thought it was going great as microbuilds. My only worry is how this will be achieved, 1x1s and 1x3s bricks for trees instead of plates?
    Worries me- but could be great if done proper

    Here are some screenshots from the video that give an idea of what they are currently doing.

    Good for generic pieces but not at all interesting. Better as a microbuild in my opinion.

    I realize this is still in a prototype stage, buy boy, those looks really bad. Hopefully the final product will not disappoint.

    I feel like the initial poster of this on Cuusoo is getting shafted. It was "his" idea and only the first set had the cuusoo banner on it. So I'm assuming he doesn't get the 1% of sales for all the other sets? I'm sure that's why LEGO has you basically sign away all your rights when you submit projects on Cuusoo, just seems odd to me.

    I thought the original Minecraft submission was by the Minecraft creators which means they're getting licensing money either way.

    I'm not sold on these either, I really liked the microbuild but well, they've got a lot of time to come up with some really interesting sets.

    The issue with microbuild is that for $35 a set, it is awfully small of a play item. If I by three sets for one of my kids that is $105, and there are much better uses for my money for a toy based item. For that I would jump on Galactic Titan, or many other $100 normal Lego sets, or something outside of Lego completely. My kids like Minecraft, but I simply refuse to buy the microbuild sets. It just isn't worth the money for our family.


    If they get these done right, the potential is massive.

    Ah that would make sense.

    Lego use these as inspiration: http://imgur.com/a/EcBGW

    Or you could just make new Minecraft type Minifigures with rectangular arms and legs as they could be very fragile for kids to play with if they were brick-built. Please don't use the regular minifigure torso and legs as it takes away from the game and wont be as recognisable.

    ^ Why not tell them on the facebook page? They probably don't read this forum.

    Those actually look really good.
