Announcing LEGO Minecraft™ Micro World, the third LEGO® CUUSOO product.

We’re thrilled to give you the first look at the third LEGO CUUSOO product, 21102 LEGO Minecraft Micro World. The Minecraft project was the first to reach 10,000 supporters on LEGO CUUSOO and pass the review required to become a LEGO product.

The Model
Each box includes parts to build four cubic modular vignettes that you can connect to recreate the Minecraft experience in LEGO bricks. One Minecraft block is equal to one 1×1 LEGO plate with a tile on top–not a perfect cube, but the best approximation at the chosen scale.

The set includes two of Minecraft’s most iconic characters, Steve and a Creeper, represented as “Micro Mobs.” The surface of the modules comes off to reveal mines and hidden resources beneath. You can build your own landscapes, stack cubes on top of each other, and build the world of Minecraft as you wish. LEGO Minecraft Micro World presents a modular standard for building a Minecraft world that can be configured any way you like.

The Design Process
LEGO Minecraft Micro World
was developed in collaboration with four LEGO fans: Chris Malloy, Michael Thomas (suparMacho), Kyle Tingey (koalaexpert), and Bjarne Panduro Tveskov. These fans developed their own concepts alongside LEGO designer Steen Sig Andersen and the LEGO CUUSOO team, and helped us shape the product into its final version.

The concept has taken quite the journey from the original concept images at a 2×2 brick scale. Once the group saw the micro-scale concepts, there was no doubt that this was the right direction for the product. Bjarne Panduro Tveskov, himself a former LEGO model designer, said the scale “packs the most Minecraft DNA into the model per LEGO brick,” and we all agreed.

Now Entering Production
Now that the product design is complete, the LEGO Minecraft Micro World is entering production. Over the next couple months, look forward to highlights of the design process and maybe even a sneak peek into the factory as it comes off the line. The set is in the middle of a record six-month journey from concept to finished product and will be available for you by summer 2012.

  1. Guy dont be to mean it just an protoetype kind of . but when it maybe it will be betterand add ores ok guy I DO NOT WORK FOR LEGO!

  2. I think its great, but would prefer it if the blocks were a bit bigger, like 1 block in minecraft would be 1 block here, steve and mob, etc, would have arms and legs, etc. Its quite hard to see the things inside now…nice idea though!

  3. I agree with what most people here are saying:Good idea, BAD execution. Steve needs arms. The landscape needs to be bigger so it has good proportion with the mobs, I like the "scene inside a block" idea macroidtoe mentioned. The set in the picture would be good just as a desk accessory, but other than that I wouldn’t buy it. This idea has a lot of potential for both Lego and Mojang, but it needs to be improved first.

  4. its a cool idea and all but over priced and its kinda cramped plus wheres the minecraft in it wheres that feeling of finding a cave and fighting monsters

  5. Great concept, but the execution was bad. Really feel that you missed the point here and this is a poor representation of Minecraft.

  6. this looks great good work. I hope they come with all of the minecraft stuff! And is there hidden diamond in the caves? that would be great. Also I bet people who havent even herd of minecraft will buy this set.

  7. I support macroidtoe, his idea is brillientthe idea: "Hmmm. I like the idea of unveiling an interior cave scene when you pull the four components apart, but perhaps it would be cooler if the exterior was simply a grass-covered dirt cube, built "pixel-by-pixel"? Later sets could be a mossy stone cube with a dungeon inside, a sand cube with a desert scene inside, etc. Thus it becomes a sort of two-in-one model."

  8. I like legos and Minecraft so I could do bolth of them at the same time. to bad its over priced

  9. I love the idea of smooth bricks representing the mini- Mine craft world but it Looks slightly rushed with the idea of smooth sand and grass and non smooth lava and rocks. I don’t know why everybody is concerned about the mini-figures as this set looks like a decorative set, not really usable, I must say though some of the other mine craft Lego ideas were much better then the official product. http://cuusoo.s3.amazonaws.com/documents/2df8b/2c94e/c5cbf/c9ee2/460b7/c5f9b/c0bc8/a9bdb/thumb640x360.jpgThe above link i think is the better idea

  10. Why do people want others to create things for them? And why cant people just simply play minecraft?

  11. How do you the achivement punching wood with no arms? Headbutt? Creeper will kill Steve every single time.

  12. “er, I really dig* this, lol”yeah… Um, why would anyone buy this sh*t.MAKE IT MINIFIG SCALE! YOU RUINED LEGO MINECRAFT YOU DOOSH BAG

  13. I love Minecrafte and I love Lego, but this set sucks! I wanted Square blocks that resemble the blocks in Minecraft (Duh) The pieces should be able to stand on their own. A grass block by itself should be recognizable to any Minecraft junkie. Didnt the developers do any research at all before ruining what could have been a brilliant set?

  14. I think this is a lame theme considering it is mincraft and anyone can build something like this with 1×1 bricks so what is the point? And I only know one person who would even consider buying this(a real loser) and he is obsessed with minecraft and legos and I also dont really see much playability with this, more of a model and anyone who is old enough to enjoy models would not like this. But i love the cuusoo team but not exactly this topic.

  15. This idea is pure genius. Combining two genius idea into one! Although $35? Tough luck guys I’m not buying. I think I still have more fun with the game.

  16. How much exactly will 1% be? Cuz unless this thing is gonna be HHHHHHHUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGGGGGGGGGGGGGEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE, it sounds pretty cheap.

  17. To all the haters out there: It’s a fun idea/theme since you can now own a physical form of the minecraft world! Also I hope more people will come up with awesome ideas that can be converted to lego.For the dutch people i’ve created a blog which covers more of the cool things and I suggest you check it out: http://do-want.nl/

  18. Eh. It looks cool, but…it’s more of an exhibition piece than a true depiction of Minecraft. Both ‘minimobs’ are (ironically) too big to fit into the house. The usage of a brown plate to separate the surface from underground pretty much means that any sort of ‘mining’ is an impossibility. And what is it called? Minecraft. If you can’t mine…I think it would be more interesting if only 3 types if LEGO bricks were used: 1×1 tiles, 1×1 plates, and a single 15×15 grey plate. The plate would represent bedrock; for you Minecraft players out there, you’ll know that a world chunk is 15x15x256, hence my choice of dimensions. 1×1 tiles will represent slabs, and a 1×1 tile on top of a 1×1 plate (or two plates on top of each other) will represent a block, thus preserving the 2:1 size ratio of slabs to blocks. The chunk would thus be built from bedrock up. It would be a lot more faithful to how Minecraft really is.
