THE BUZZ: Mojang and the LEGO group have finally shown off the first official pieces of Minecraft LEGO to the world.

The set will be released this summer for $34.99 in the US, each set will contain four modular cubes and the surface of each can be removed to reveal mines and resources hidden underneath. Steve and a Creeper will also be included in the set.

Minecraft creator Markus “Notch” Perrson said at a press conference today:

“I played a lot with Lego bricks as a child, and that’s influenced how I make games. I prefer games with levels that are modifiable. I don’t like static levels. There are problems of scaling. Minecraft has huge long tunnels, and you can’t really fit that in to a living room. But I think the Lego guys have created something that’s really great, that really feels like Minecraft.”

You can pre-order a set here.

EGM’s TAKE: Finally the two most obvious brands have joined together to create the ultimate creative tool, LEGO Minecraft is here! While the set looks pretty basic this is only the beginning, expect more sets to released if this one sells well. Also if you buy enough imagine what you could create. At least now Minecraft players will have something to do when there’s a power cut.
