Minecraft may soon find itself in LEGO replica size bricks, if the developer Mojang gets it’s wish. Mojang has submitted a proposal for LEGO Minecraft on the Cuusoo community website, which could see the dream becoming a reality.
However, these projects do have certain guidelines and the LEGO Cuusoo project would need at least 10,000 supporters to get behind the idea. It’s then reviewed by LEGO, with the ‘possibility‘ of becoming an official product. It’s not actually been confirmed or a signed and sealed deal as of yet, despite websites reporting it has been. It’s still in very early development stages. There are nearly 3,000 supporters already behind the project, making it the most popular on the site, and Mojang must be hopeful that its concept will at least reach the review stage of the process.
On the project description page, Mojang state that “Minecraft is about placing blocks to build anything you can imagine in the virtual world. You can build anything you imagine with LEGO bricks in the physical world. Minecraft and LEGO were meant to be together.”
We’ll just have to wait until further development has been officially confirmed. Meanwhile, I suggest you get your old LEGO mini figures out and play with them for the time being.
