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.

Pre-Order Yours Today
You can pre-order today and be one of the first to receive LEGO Minecraft Micro World when it ships this summer. LEGO Minecraft Micro World is available for pre-order exclusively through Mojang retail partner J!NX for $34.99. To pre-order yours, become a fan of LEGO Minecraft on Facebook. You’ll also be able to buy the sets this summer via shop.LEGO.com and select LEGO brand retail stores.

Minecraft™ LEGO® CUUSOO Project Passes LEGO Review

Happy New Year! Since the Minecraft™ project reached 10,000 supporters on LEGO® CUUSOO, many of you have been eagerly awaiting our update.  Until now, the project has been in the LEGO Review—a stage before product development begins where a LEGO Jury evaluates the idea’s feasibility as a product and makes a decision.

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