Official 'Minecraft' LEGOs are On the Way

Posted Wed Jan 25, 2012 at 09:30 AM PST by Dick Ward

The idea has passed through review and the project is now in the works.

If you're 'Minecraft' player, you've probably gotten there at some point. You've just created an absolutely stunning tower with an automatic crop harvester and a machine that lets you infinitely mine stone when you realize you haven't blinked in hours. It's time to get away from the computer.

Soon you won't have to give up your 'Minecraft' just because you've stepped away from the screen. 'Minecraft' LEGOs will provide you with that building fix you're looking for. "We're happy to announce that the Minecraft project on LEGO CUUSOO has passed the LEGO review and we are now developing a concept that celebrates the best aspects of building with the LEGO system and in Minecraft," says the CUUSOO blog.

CUUSOO is a program that's a bit like Kickstarter, but for LEGOs. In order to get an idea through to the LEGO review board, you need 10,000 supporters. Once you get that, the idea needs to be approved based on certain criteria. 'Minecraft' LEGOs have done both and a real product is on the way.

"We can’t wait to show it to you," reads the blog, "but it isn't ready just yet. These things take time, so we appreciate your patience. More details are to come."
