Well, these don't say Cuusoo on them, so my guess is the later. :shrug_oh_well:

It's cool that these are getting a wide release... I hope they start to do more video game stuff that isn't Star Wars or Minecraft. :classic:

On the SDCC announcements yesterday they were listed under the CUUSOO theme with the Delorean.

It's really cool that they've seen the potential to expand the scope of a project that came from CUUSOO - I hope they do the same in the future if they find another worthy project. I'm not sure if I'll buy these, but it's a great addition to the line-up at any rate.

I hope that these are released as normal sets, as we do not get Cusoo in New Zealand. Maybe since they changed the name of the first set to Minecraft: The Forest (I think), that might be easier to find also. I love MC and Lego, so it's a dream come true <3.

I'm glad that LEGO are making more Minecraft sets; the game is unusually addictive and it translates more or less perfectly in LEGO. The 1st set (released last year) was a good set, and the two upcoming sets are also good sets. I'll be sure to buy both, and I hope that we get even more sets in the future.

Even though I don't play minecraft, I think these minecraft LEGO sets would make great show pieces. I'm planning on getting all 3 in one order in September. That's gonna push my technic tow truck purchase back to October!

Awesome, in one of the pictures the pink looks different, like it's a sticker.

These photos are so wonderfully gorgeous. Are these computer-generated or actual photos? If the former, man, I wish LDD had a photo-rendering mode so I can recreate these shots. Just from the photos alone, I want these sets even though I've never played Minecraft before. But chances are, in my actual hands, the sets will look tiny, imperfect, and dull.

Thanks for the pictures. I don't play Minecraft, but I bought the last set just because it was mainstream. It is still sealed. Although I do like building with lots of small pieces, so these are good parts packs, but I honestly don't know if they are worth the retail price vs bricklinking all of the individual pieces I may actually need in one.

I play Minecraft, and I liked the first sets design, but that white and red thing has me confused, is it restone? A torch? Herobrine?

Excited they are doing some more Minecraft sets, I've been trying really hard not to buy some extras of the original set to expand my lego Minecraft world with some more sections of my own design.

It's most likely a mushroom.

On a desperate note I love the Village set and the Original but I'm not so keen on the Nether set. The Nether is the dullest part of Minecraft.
I would love for lego to do a Minecraft studio like they have recently with the architecture series.

I think the coolest thing about the Village set is the dark tan 1x1 tiles. Those will come in really handy. :sweet:

These sets look awesome, and it's awesome that a LEGO Cuusoo project has finally become a springboard for a full product line. Especially a project like Minecraft that several people thought was doomed to fail for any number of reasons!


Really?  How did people think that MineCraft would fail??  I've only been paying attention to Cuusoo for the last few months now, so it had already passed when I first saw it....  But it seems like a perfect fit to me!

It would have been nice to get an extra portal to put in our overworld sets.

I think it was more about lego designing a set that was unappealling to them, considering the project that got the votes had little to no actual set ideas.

Ah, well it was done by a casual fan, and it was immediately followed up by a bazillion better follow-up projects, so I think it was bound to be made at some point!
