    predictions in the theme...
    One prediction is that LEGO Minecraft will end and be replaced by Overwatch, which we already know is coming.

    It's been rumored that we'll get buildable figures Build-a-bob/ construct a zurg style featuring printed 2x4s that were seen in the same database as the 2019 Ninjago part leaks

    CCC honestly that could be the case... well although I’m a fan of the Minecraft theme, anyway they could cancel it...
  • MiubouMiubou USAs hand...Member Posts: 19
    all right... first idea for the 2019 spring wave!
    THE TRIDENT SHRINE 
    cost: 15.00$
    this idea set includes drowned, Steve, and tropical fish...
    main action feature: hidden sponge and trident holding shrine 
    this set would require a new trident but the one in the picture is the Atlantis gold trident, a bigger head for the drowned, and a new fish mold,

    Pfff...Overwatch...who plays that anymore? That's like sooo several years ago! Fortnite is like totally in right now!

    Although it probably won't happen, it would be cool to see a larger build with a "redstone contraption" play feature. Like a hidden technic and levers thing that you could make a figure fall down a hole or control a door (kind of like the temple set but more) by triggering it somehow and it would click the button on the back of a light brick to represent a redstone lamp (lighting the set). It wouldn't have to be too complicated, but something more like a larger play feature.

    I don't know. But LEGO are buying into it.

    I assumed they were joking, considering how many comments to that effect I remember seeing when Lego Minecraft itself was announced.

    An Overwatch theme seems like a fairly smart bet not just because of being colorful and approachable but also because it stands a good chance of being a big hit in east Asia, a market Lego has long desired to gain a stronger foothold in. South Korea in particular is hugely into Overwatch from what I've seen (and Japan to a slightly lesser extent).

    Lyichir that explains a lot with the recent burst of overwatch toys like Nerf and of course Lego

    Next year is Minecraft's tenth anniversary. It'd be strange if they ended it there. That'd be like giving your spouse divorce papers as an anniversary gift.
    I think we'll see Minecraft sort of slow down and fade away rather than suddenly go out with a bang. At this point it'd be wiser for Lego to just release fewer sets if they think their audience is shrinking rather than quit altogether after this big year.

    I love the Minecraft sets. The latest wave had the Bedroom adventures really over priced although it is a good set for kids. I love building Minecraft sets - they are just really nice and easy to build, and go together pretty fast (owing to real actual bricks 2x4`s being used). It will be sad if they stop the theme as its the only theme my son asks Lego for and we enjoy playing together. 
  • MiubouMiubou USAs hand...Member Posts: 19
    Baby_yoda yes that could be the case... but remember Minecraft is YouTube’s 2018 most watched videos... well fortnight did get close but still to this day Minecraft is 2nd most played game

    I agree, I love this theme and will probably never stop buying unless they stop production... which won’t hopefully happen for another decade...

    That's kind of what I meant when I said "It'd be strange if they ended it"

    Really? I would thunk something called "Bedroom adventures" would be more adult-oriented...

    i hate spell check in general but every now and then...
  • msandersmsanders Member Posts: 839
    Lol. Just seen the comments. Yes, spell check can be annoying sometimes (and its made even harder sometimes when you live in a foreign country and the settings keep going back to French!). In this case, I find the change in spell check funny!! Bedroom adventures would be a great Minecraft set!!!! :-)

    Bedroom adventures would be the battle minigame map Shrunk. It looks like a massive bedroom that you have to fight in. I would actually love some sets based off the minigames.
  • Baby_YodaBaby_Yoda The world's backsideMember Posts: 683
    ^ We do already have the newly released #21145 Skull Arena, and honestly the official images don't do it justice. It looks a lot less messy in real life.
  • FowlerBricksFowlerBricks USAMember Posts: 1,399
    ^That one is definitely going the right direction. The new skins look amazing! The arena isn't half bad either.
  • Baby_YodaBaby_Yoda The world's backsideMember Posts: 683
    Yeah, I only got it to complete my collection of player skins, but the build is pretty cool. It's clearly designed for play, but it does surprisingly well on display too in my opinion.

    Idea 2
    the pillage
    set includes: new skin, villager, pillager, and beast
    mainbuild is small villager house
    newparts would be, new player skin, crossbow, and beast head...
    action feature is breakable Wall...

    ^ That does sound interesting. I think a lot of Minecraft sets try (and fail) to conform to the goodies vs baddies model that many other Lego sets for that audience follow. This last wave with #21145 Skull Arena and #21146 Skeleton Attack is getting closer. It's really nice that into the game's tenth year the developers are still adding content. I'd be flabbergasted if we didn't see a shipwreck at some point - it'd be super appealing to kids and it wouldn't need to be at all big.

    my guess is that we would get a shipwreck for 30$ in a wave, we aways get a natural spawning structure, so we could...

  • MiubouMiubou USAs hand...Member Posts: 19
    with the last wave getting 2 minisets, we could get a polybag that contains a mob....
    wait
    SET IDEA 3
    minecon vote  668 parts, 48,99$
    comes with a alpaca, Llama, mob a, mob b, mob c, and mob d, ostrich, fox, and merekat...
    3 different biomes each with there special inclusions, savanna with small baobab tree and a termite, taiga with spruce tree and campfire and a berry bush, and desert with palm tree and oasis...
    each mob comes with stand
    [only available during minecon 2019 week at target]

    I expect we'll see some sets based on the Update Aquatic. It provides a good opportunity for separate sets that incentivize buying related sets. For example: An underwater ruin set in the ~$30 range, with a ruin, a hidden chest with buried treasure map, one or two Drowned, nautilus shells, a trident, and a dolphin. Then there could be a larger ~$60 beach/island set with a small base, maybe a sugar cane farm, a couple turtles with a nest, a turtle shell helmet, a couple Drowned, and a buried treasure feature with a heart of the sea.

    As for other sets, I'm surprised we haven't yet seen a desert temple. I suppose the reason is it would need to be relatively large, and could reasonably have only a couple play features. I'm also surprised there hasn't been a beacon in any of the sets with bases. A small one wouldn't require too many pieces.

    Very true... I’m still confused why there is not a desert temple set... in fact it is the most underrated biome, only 2.5 sets that are centered around the desert... the .5 is the village.
    Good idea with the ocean themed sets!

    I want a savana biome village to happen just to get a dark orange tile part pack from the roof.

    I think Minecraft in general is moving to smaller, more kid-friendly sets. Five sets this year have been equal or lower than all previous sets in price, some of which are among the theme's best yet in my opinion. I suppose the concept of Lego Minecraft doesn't appeal to AFOLs in the same way Star Wars does, and so larger sets simply aren't as popular. Minecraft hasn't really been a game for adults for many years now. The Village must have done reasonably well for Lego to go ahead with The Mountain Cave, but I wonder if the latter's been selling well.
    On the topic of a desert temple, I can think of two viable routes for Lego to take:
    1. "The Treasure Room" (or whatever). Price point of $20-$30 USD. Depicts the bottom of the treasure pit in a desert temple. Similar size and shape as The Dungeon. Features include an exploding floor. Comes with Alex/Steve and a relevant hostile mob
    2. "The Sand Temple" (or whatever). Price point of $60-$80 USD. Super-compressed desert temple with a bunch of not-entirely-relevant features: think The Ocean Monument. Comes with Steve, Alex, and a few random mobs.

    good idea! an additional idea is you could make them stack to make a full version of the desert temple...

    Set idea 3
    the parrot party!
    parts 890ps and 80$
    contains 5 mini-figs, Steve with elytra, creeper, and 2 parrots and a ocelot 
    main build is top of a jungle tree with a elytra launching feature
    has 2 new blocks, jukebox, and a filled cauldron of water...
    also a new item, music disk [can contain 3]
  • Baby_YodaBaby_Yoda The world's backsideMember Posts: 683
    That sound like it would be too similar to The Skeleton Attack. However, the general idea might work on a smaller scale.
