    ^ The Crafting Box 3.0 is really weak, the build looks ok but it really needs a new colour horse or something.

    Didn't know about the Minecraft Dungeons game, thanks for that.

    With Mario adding to all the other themes surly something has to give and I always thought it would be Minecraft but I have been writing it off for years.

    What ever happened to the film which kept get putting back?
    Yeah I can't find much of a hook on the 3.0 box. The alternative models are decent and varried though so I guess that would be it. Too bad they dont have anything to coincide with the new Nether update. They could do a lot of cool sets for that.

    The Panda Nursery is nice for the Panda's...
    I added them to Bricklink as minepanda01 and minepanda02.

    Hopefully next year we get a couple Nether Update sets. I would particularly like to see a blue forest with teal/azure trees and maybe a piglin Bastion set. Would also really like to see a Lego Strider.

    What are they still missing? I can think of:
    * Bastion Remnant
    * Desert Temple
    * End City
    * Mansion

    And arguably (not all that interesting as sets):
    * Oasis
    * Underwater Ruins

    And the new biomes:
    * Crimson Forest
    * Warped Forest
    * Soul Sand Valley (maybe a fossil?)
    * Basalt Delta (probably not terribly clear in a LEGO set)

    I'm honestly surprised that Minecraft's been going strong as a LEGO theme for 7+ years now, and so far hasn't seemed like it's going to end anytime soon.

    I still want a llama but I'm not holding my breath. Supposedly Mountains are getting the next revision in the game and we could finally get a return of goats to Lego.

    Minecraft goats won't look like real goats though.

    Oh I know, I didn't explain this thought fully. I was enjoying imaging everyone reacting to goats coming back but not the ones everyone really wants.

    The sets posted earlier came a bit out of the blue, but I'm really looking forward to the bees and the trading post with llama.
    The "Abandoned" Mine looks a bit basic and bland, to be honest. I'm not sure what it brings to the table really, but getting another slime is nice.

    Looking at Minecraft in general, we've had some recent sets for the major releases and it looks like plenty coming in the near future as well:

    1.13 Aquatic: #21152 Pirate Ship with Turtle, Turtle Eggs & Dolphin. No Drowned yet though, which is a shame, but may well appear in the rumoured Coral Reef set.
    1.14 Village & Pillage: Loads! Pillagers, Illagers, Ravagers, Panda, Fox and upcoming Llamas & Traders.
    1.15 Buzzy Bees: Upcoming #21165 The Bee Farm with Bees, Beehives and Honey
    1.16 Nether Update: The Warped Forest coming next year.
    1.17 Caves & Cliffs: Plenty of new blocks, which may possibly appear in future sets, but I'll keep my fingers crossed for Goats, the Glow Squid, some kind of Axolotl and, most of all, for a Warden!

    Well, it seems we are going to be getting a Drowned figure as part of #21164 The Coral Reef, which looks great. Also comes with a normal and "inflated" Puffer Fish, a couple of Sea Pickles and Kelp. The Kelp looks a little short, but will be easy to "grow" with a few extra parts. I'll definitely grab a couple of these, at least. The other officially revealed set is #21170 The Pig House, which has been discussed before . I can't see anything new in the set, but it does look like a nice addition to the player-built, themed dwellings that have been released. #21168, #21169 are in the database without details so far.

    Drowned has a printed nautilus shell which is nice. I assume the teal 1x1 round in the chest is meant to represent the Heart of the Sea

    ^Yes, absolutely, I meant to mention the Nautilus Shell and forgot! Thanks for pointing it out.
    Teal 1x1 Heart of the Sea? Possibly! I'll have to think of a way to create a convincing Conduit in Activation Frame.

    Oh! Just realised that Alex is wearing a Turtle Shell helmet in #21164 The Coral Reef!

    Obviously, this is just a recolour of the standard Minecraft helmet, but nice to have.

    I don't think these class as leaks, due to the 2021 catalogue being available online, but please remove this, if they do.

    #21168 The Warped Forest - As expected teal bricks for the trees and, slightly different to @veyniac's MOC, has purple trunks and I'm disappointed they haven't used the Plant, W/ 3.2 Shaft, No. 2 in teal to represent Twisting Vines or Warped Roots. The big ones here are the new Player Skin figure, Piglin minifigs and the Hoglin build. The Piglins look great, while the Hoglin is okay to my eyes. Not brilliant, but not bad.

    #21169 The First Adventure - Looking at the mobs, this set is definitely themed to Minecraft Earth, with a new Moobloom build, a Dyed Cat and a Horned Sheep, all of which are unique to Minecraft Earth and not present in the standard game, although the Dyed Cat is not even confirmed in ME, I believe! The set looks good, with a couple of play features, including some falling sand, a water elevator and something to do with lava bursting out of the rock, as well as some rails. It reminds me of #21147 The Bedrock Adventures in some respects.

    I'm really looking forward to getting all of the new sets, though #21166 The "Abandoned" Mine is a little lacklustre, as I mentioned above.

    So a little catching up for me:

    the new sets definitely sound great, who would of thought 2021 legos would have bees, hoglins, drowned, and strangely familiar flashbacks to old sets*

    *(seriously, abandoned mine has a strange feeling around it, just can’t shake it)

    And also the introduction of Minecraft earth is definitely going to be a major move for lego, just like the dungeons set, it’s going to get interesting to see how lego is going to handle these spin-off stuff....

    I'm not sure that Minecraft Earth is going to have a major impact in Lego Minecraft. We've had only the one Dungeons set so far and, although someone commented on the main site that Minecraft Earth is a "dead" game, which I feel is a little premature, it is *still* in early access and I don't think that it'll have the same reach as normal Minecraft.
    We'll see, but the bulk of the sets are still definitely related to the main game.

    99 times out 100 a comment saying 'dead game!' is a cry for attention by people who have crafted Not Liking Things as their personality type. Unless they also include data to support that theory it's not worth paying the slightest attention to. 
  • Waterjedi17Waterjedi17 Member Posts: 76
    So it appears some versions of the 2021 Retail Catalog have what I assume are preliminary models of 21168 and 21169. Of note is how 21169 had more mobs, including an exclusive Cluckshroom and a different hoglin build in 21168. 

    We rarely get a clear look at these versions of models so it's nice to see what could've been...

    Summer 2021 minecraft sets have been leaked. Looks like we will be getting a Ruined Portal, a "Tower to Heaven", a "Jungle Abomination", and a "Modern Tree House". I am the most interested in the Ruined Portal, although TBH it will probably be a couple steps below my MOC.
    BumblepantsJudgeChuck
  • JudgeChuckJudgeChuck UKMember Posts: 1,531
    Interesting...

    Yes, the Ruined Portal is likely to be smaller that yours, @veyniac. The Jungle Abomination is another Minecraft Dungeons mob, but I have no idea what the other two are likely to be, other than something related to their titles! I can't think of anything Minecraft-specific that they could refer to, so a couple of "player-built" structures seems likely.

    On a separate note, but because I was trying to see how many individual parts were in your MOC, @veyniac, is there an easy way of getting the total number of bricks for a given BL wanted list? It shows the number of different parts, but not the total and I can;t spot where to look!
    veyniac
  • veyniacveyniac Northwest MinnesotaMember Posts: 300
    @JudgeChuck I have no experience whatsoever with Bricklink wanted lists, as I haven't had any reason to use them so far. I am usually to busy designing my own MOCs to build someone else's. Maybe I should remedy that this year :)
    However, I do know the total number of parts in my Ruined Portal is 173 (according to Rebrickable). I would guess that the official one will be about the same part count, but with more landscape and a less detailed portal.

    Thanks to Promobricks, we now have set numbers and part counts too...

    21171 The Horse Stable 241 pcs ($20?)
    21172 The Ruined Portal 316 pcs ($30?)
    21173 The Sky Tower 565 pcs ($60?)
    21174 The Modern Tree House 909 pcs ($100?)
    21176 The Jungle Abomination 489 pcs ($40?)

    Hope we get some netherite armor in these sets, though I'm guessing they'll throw a full set in the most expensive set...

    LOL! Sorry, it wasn't meant to be a question aimed at you specifically but, re-reading it, my phrasing certainly makes it sound that way! :-)

    @Waterjedi17 Yes, some Netherite Armor would be nice. Possibly in The Ruined Portal? Fingers crossed! :-)

    The Minecraft theme is certainly showing no signs of slowing down. I wonder: Will 2012 or 2013 be classed as the 10 Year Anniversary and will we get another large D2C set to celebrate?

    The new Minecraft set official images are out, so we can discuss them openly:
    21171 - The Stable - skeleton horse, blue & black horses, TRIDENT!, Golden Carrot, Spruce Wood structures & new player skin
    21172 - The Ruined Portal - Though it doesn't look particularly ruined, unless there's a transformational play-feature. As @veyniac mentioned in another thread, it doesn't really match up with the in-game structure at all, but I quite like it overall. Purple Baby Sheep, Wither Skeleton, Baby Hoglin, a block of Ancient Debris & a full set of Netherite Armour.
    21173 - The Sky Tower - Player-built structure, another TRIDENT!, new player skin, Elytra, firework, Ocelot & 2 Phantoms. The structure looks odd to me.
    21174 - The Modern Treehouse - Another player-built structure, by the look of it. Looks a little odd as well, frankly! Two new character skins, two Chickens, a Charged Creeper, a Cat. The structure looks like it is meant to be made of various concretes, perhaps, and there are 4 large window parts.
    21176 - The Jungle Abomination - Minecraft Dungeons set, large brick-built Jungle Abomination, Iron Golem, Brick-built plant (Poison Quill Vine?), 2 player skins & a creeper of some kind. Not sure what it is, exactly, as it doesn't look like an Icy Creeper.

    Overall, I'm not too impressed by the builds themselves, though they may grow on me. There are some nice new elements and all the new player skins are appreciated though.

    My Minecraft Story…
    I purchased my first LEGO Minecraft set in 2017, I think it was #21129: The Mushroom Island. Little did I know then about Minecraft, I only knew it was a computer game and I had seen screen shots from it. These reminded me of the first computer games that I played in the early eighties of the previous century on the ZX Spectrum from Sir Clive Sinclair. Still have my Spectrum somewhere and also it’s predecessor ZX 81 (with 1k RAM memory!). The games that were available in the early eighties were all very blocky and basic and ‘sprite’ driven.
    Therefore I was very much attracted by the blocky design of the sets produced in the Minecraft theme. But having virtually no knowledge of the Minecraft world, the sets didn’t make a lot of sense to me. Nevertheless I bought quite a few of the sets and also started to collect all brick built animals and mobs. I even started to add not yet catalogued animals to the Bricklink inventory, which is fun to do.


    Last month I downloaded the Minecraft game and started playing. A whole new world opened right before my eyes! Suddenly everything I came across in  LEGO Minecraft sets made sense. I also became aware that the set designs are very close to the looks of the game. Now that I’m playing the game (and looking up many elements in the Minecraft Wiki) I can safely say that I’m addicted to LEGO Minecraft.
    Well, that’s my story in a nutshell. I hope you liked it.

    Thanks for your story @Brickfan50!

    There aren't a huge number of us Lego Minecraft fans on here, so any additions are more than welcome!

    Check out @veyniac's posts in the MOC thread, for some excellent Minecraft MOCs, some of which I have built myself. Instructions are also available on Rebrickable.

    I quite enjoy playing Minecraft myself, as I enjoy the freedom that "Open World" games can provide and still play regularly with my two daughters in various worlds that we have created. They prefer building, while I much prefer adventuring, so I usually end up losing all my valuables to them! ;-)

    I haven't had the time, or space, to rebuild my Lego Minecraft world for quite some time, so I am looking forward to doing so at some point and adding all the new sets that have been added over the last few years.

    This is what it looked like way back in July 2016 (heavens, was it *that* long ago??!!):





    This did contain all of the released sets up to, and including, 2016, plus a load of added bricks for basic scenery, so there's obviously a lot more to add next time. I'm especially looking forward to building something around #21137 The Mountain Cave!

    @Yellowcastle @Bumblepants Perhaps it would be a good idea to rename this thread as a general "Minecraft Discussion" thread? Would that be possible?

    To build Minecraft stuff out of LEGO, you just need a lot of 2x2 and 2x4 bricks and some random plates, right? Why buy sets? ;) I'm kidding! @JudgeChuck those look awesome.
  • Brickfan50Brickfan50 Zwolle, NetherlandsMember Posts: 412
    Those are some very nice layouts, @JudgeChuck! One of the main advantages of this theme over other themes is that you can easily connect and rearrange sets. With a little effort you can make something big!
    It's a pity IMO that LEGO changed the concept of elevated plates (by putting one stud high bricks under the plates) in 2019. It was perfect for connecting sets. At the moment I'm putting bricks under the newer sets, which makes them look more Minecraft-ish. They become more sturdy as well. Try to pick-up #21159 and you'll see what I mean.
    I'm following @veyniac on Rebrickable, he indeed has some great sets over there!

  • JudgeChuckJudgeChuck UKMember Posts: 1,531
    Thanks, @Brickfan50!

    I am in complete agreement. I think #21128 The Village was the first set that had a non-raised build and I can understand why they did start to move away from having fully raised sets, due to the number of bricks used.
    However, apart from sets that have water or lava, which are always non-raised, there has been a steady transition from 2017 to around early 2020, where it is very obvious that the bases are pretty much all non-raised.

    I will be doing the same as you and will raise all the sets to the same level in my build. When it happens.

    Admins: thanks for the name change of this thread!
    Seconded!

    Re: #21136, it is a bit of an odd set and got rather slated when it was released, perhaps understandably, as it is a bit of a block!
    The interior, play feature and, of course, the Guardians and Squid definitely make up for its blockiness and, frankly, I'm not sure how Lego could have made the exterior more interesting, given the source!
    I think that it could definitely have done with an least one extra normal Guardian though.
    The other issue is that there weren't very many sea-related sets at the time, apart from #21129 The Mushroom Island, which is a bit tenuous really. Now, however, we also have #21152 Pirate Ship and #21164 The Coral Reef, which at least allows you to create a bit more of an aquatic area. I've got a couple of Coral Reefs and may add another one or two, especially for the Drowned Zombies! I have also added extra bricks to BL orders recently, so that I have some more Sea Pickles and Kelp, which will definitely help any future display.
    Brickfan50
  • Brickfan50Brickfan50 Zwolle, NetherlandsMember Posts: 412
    ^Indeed, #21136 did not receive a lot of positive reviews. The review here on Brickset by @iso3200) was very detailed with great photographs. Jangbricks however was a bit more critical...
    A couple of reviewers complained about the price, but the PPP was 10.7 which is very reasonable for a Minecraft set for this number of pieces. I paid €222 for the set. This may seem expensive but it was the cheapest available on BL within the EU when I checked. And I have no regrets so far. :-)
    The Coral Reef is a great set and I can imagine a whole underwater landscape with multiples of this one. I also plan to buy a few more.
    What are the Sea Pickles and Kelp that you're referring to?

    Being very honest, it is a bit dull and monotone, but I like the set nonetheless. It's not my favourite Minecraft set, by a long way, but it's not my least favourite either! That probably goes to #21151 The End Battle. The Ender Dragon's wings are more accurate than the previous version, but it's a *lot* smaller and I dislike the front legs. The terrain is also far smaller and has less elements, plus no Dragon Egg!

    Yes, definitely more Coral Reefs needed!

    Sea Pickles
    Kelp

    Both are represented by elements in the Coral Reef set.

    At the moment I only have to work 2 days a week, so plenty of time for Minecraft.
    I get a lot of inspiration from Jangbrick's video about his MC layout (you probably know the one that is under his city layout).


    I find myself ordering bulk lots of reddish brown bricks and green plates.

    I do like Jang's set-up and, especially, his Ender Dragon mod, but I'm not quite so taken with *some* of the custom things he has added (Homer? Why? ;-) )
    Overall, it is an excellent display though, the landscaping is really impressive. :thumbsup:

    As I mentioned in the "What are you buying?" thread, I just started my 2nd wave 2021 purchases with #21172 The Ruined Portal and also grabbed additional #21164 The Coral Reef and #21165 The Bee Farm at a discount.

    I definitely wanted more Coral Reef sets (I have 3 now), as I would like a bit of size to the underwater part of my display and definitely wasted more Drowned Zombies. I picked up a couple of additional ones from BrickLink as well, so have 5 in total.

    Again, I really wanted some more Bees, so that I can spread them around the landscape a little and an extra set of Elytra and a Villager is a definite bonus!

    Having played actual minecraft, a swarm of 5 Drowned Zombies is the MINIMUM number you need for a semi-realistic swarm of underwater zombie foes.

    I built #21172 The Ruined Portal last night and I have to say that I really like it. It was discussed before that it's not as accurate as it could be to the in-game structure, but I think Lego have made a nice set overall and the transform feature works really well for me, unlike in Jang's video.
    The baby Hoglin could have been better. I assume that they were trying to replicate the black "crest" behind the head by using the 2 black Tile, Modified 1 x 1 with Open O Clip, but this is available in tan as well and I think would look a little better. I might try it out at some point.
    I do like the purple baby Sheep and the full set of Netherite Armor is excellent, especially with the modification of the standard helmet piece to match the different shape in-game.
    @veyniac's MOC does look more accurate, but does not have any of the transformative features and I don't think it would be too difficult to modify the Lego version somewhat, to increase the accuracy, without impeding the mechanics.
    I'm looking forward to getting some more of the latest sets, especially #21173 The Sky Tower and #21171 The Horse Stable, but a little ambivalent about #21174 The Modern Treehouse and #21176 The Jungle Abomination. I'll probably wait for a significant discount for those two sets.

    #21171 The Horse Stable is an excellent set! You get 3 (yes three!) brick built horses, from which 2 are unique and new. There are also a number of new recolours from existing parts in this set. I have done the inventory on BL for this set and it was quite an undertaking because of all new parts for which I also had to submit pictures. :-)
    The skeleton horse in this set is slightly different however from the previous one in set #21146. I need some time to add the changed skeleton horse to Bricklink.

    Huh. I didn't even realize that #21172 had transforming and lighting functions. Taking that into consideration, I can forgive the rather "clunky" look of the model, but there is still no excusing the fully exposed block of ancient debris.
