A Complete List of The Minecraft Lego Toys and New Sets

The History of Minecraft Lego Toys

Combining the art of Lego construction with the open-ended sandbox game that is Minecraft, Minecraft Lego Toys successfully unites two highly popular creations. Lego was created in 1934 by The Lego Group, a company based in Denmark in the Jutland area in the North of the Country. They started to produce Lego Miniatures in 1978. It’s estimated that they have produced 550 billion pieces of Lego. Enough toys to keep any child happy for many years! Lego is a Danish play on the words “play well”.

Minecraft, in case you haven’t heard of it, was originally a PC Game (it’s now a video game currently on all consoles and mobile devices) where players have to mine 3D blocks. This then means the gamer can create or craft items from their 3D surroundings and items. It’s considered one of the biggest grossing games of all time having sold over 55 Million copies to date across all known gaming platforms. Minecraft was founded and created by a single Swedish computer programmer a guy by the name of Markus "Notch" Persson. The game is referred to as a “sand-box” game in that players can do as they want, within the game types defined by the Minecraft Servers. Creation and destruction, mining and resource hunting, crafting and building are all essential elements of Minecraft.

The First Minecraft Lego Toy Release The Forest

In 2009 Mojang continued their best efforts to build develop and publish the Minecraft game until they eventually sold all rights to the Microsoft Corporation for a stunning $2.5 Billion US Dollars. This perhaps begins to explain why Lego are heavily pushing Minecraft products.

The first Minecraft Lego toy was released on June the 1st in 2012 and was called the “Micro World the Forest” set no 21102. However as you’ll see many more releases are going ahead!

Why Minecraft Lego Toys Work the Best of Both Worlds

By combining the physical real-world building of the Lego toy with the virtual in-game characters and monsters from Minecraft, Minecraft Lego Toys are sure to be a top hit for Lego collectors and fans as well as making ideal presents for kids and Minecraft gaming enthusiasts.

Minecraft as a game focuses on promoting creative play building or mining with virtual 3D cubes. Once materials have been collected from these blocks, actual crafting can begin. Lego on the other hand allows for a physical creation to actually take shape, with kids, children and fans alike using their imagination to continue building what they have pictured in their mind. And this is why the combination of Lego and Minecraft works so well – they are essentially the same toy or game, just set in different mediums.

The Minecraft Avatars and Creature Mobs and What They Mean – Hostile, Neutral or Passive?

  • Steve – He’s the player Avatar at the start of the game – it’s possible to modify him by applying custom Minecraft skins within the game
  • Creeper – These hostile Mobs will attack a player by silently getting in close, then fizzing and exploding! Any player without armor is most certainly killed.
  • Villager – These are passive Mobs that populate various in-game areas on certain Minecraft Servers. Think of these as NPCs (Non-Player Characters).
  • Pig – This delightful little Passive Mob will just wonder around Minecraft until you turn him into bacon
  • Zombie – Hostile towards the Player they keep coming in close until they are destroyed or killed.
  • Zombie Pigman – Hostile and these Mobs come from the Nether – another part of Minecraft that can only be reached by a portal or through teleportation. They are basically a cross between a pig and a zombie
  • Ghast – Hostile Mob that comes from the Nether world and shoots fireballs
  • Ender Dragon- Hostile End Boss the largest Mob in the game!
  • Enderman – Neutral and will not attack unless attacked first. These mobs can teleport randomly.
  • Spider – Hostile attacks the players and can climb vertically; they make an annoying sound too!
  • Skeleton – Hostile will have a sword or an annoying bow and arrow that can easily knock you off a ledge into lava! In which case you’ll get burned and all your diamonds and gear will sizzle!
  • Cow – Passive can be harvested for leather, raw beef and experience
  • Mooshroom – Passive Mob can be milked and is a cross between a cow and a Mushroom!

Complexity and Themes in the Lego Sets

What we are seeing then with Minecraft Lego Toys is a complexity based on the total number Lego pieces available in each kit. With the Cave (set 21113) running with 249 pieces (the lowest) up to The Mine (set 21118) with 922 pieces. This multifaceted count of pieces indicates how much building can be done with each set to some extent. Each set in the series also features a hostile mob that will attack the player in Minecraft. This creates interesting Lego game play as a set gives both a goody and a baddy, or protagonist and antagonist.

If we look at the Lego series from 21113 onwards (all released in November 2014) we can see a steady rise in the complexity of pieces.

Trends in Minecraft Lego Toy Sets

Set names remain true to the game. Each Lego set is a unique tangible area within the game and this gives players and collectors a definitive identification and sense of familiarity. Maybe the famous Danish firm where testing the waters with the early release in 2012 of Minecraft sets. However with the number of release scheduled in 2014 and the complexity of pieces it’s fair to say they’re hitting both the Minecraft and Lego toys into the marketing stratosphere.
