Minecraft found its incredible success through its simplicity. The game itself is incredibly affordable, and while lacking in any great detail like curves, it allows you to build nearly anything in its 8-Bit style like digital Lego. Genius.
So it was not a surprising move that Minecraft has teamed up with Lego to release a collection of Minecraft sets, allowing you to build and create offline just as you do in-game. And now the official sets are presented online for preorder.
The idea is that these sets, using the smallest Lego bits, can be assembled and expanded to reveal underground caves and resources. They easily separate to show their inner secrets, and can be combined with other sets to build elaborate landscapes.
The kicker here is that each of these sets are going to cost $34.99USD, and that to take part in the pre-order, you must first become a Fan of the Lego Minecraft Facebook Page
As neat as these little sets are, is there really a market for a $35 set that is only 4 inches cubed?
