Lego is making Minecraft? That's like saying water is making water. Lego isthe original Minecraft.

So, as much as I love Lego, pass.

Aside from the minifigs I'm not entirely sure what makes the Minecraft Lego blocks any different from regular Lego blocks. Still seems like a pretty sweet deal, anything that makes either of these companies money is ok in my book. I'm addicted to Minecraft, and I still have my giant set of Legos from when I was a kid stored in my closet.

There isn't anything. It's just a set with a lot of 1x1 bricks and tiles, some connectors, and the instructions to build something that looks like it came from minecraft.

Which falls along the lines of that Prince of Persia movie that they made a game of as well...

I love LEGO and have for more than 15 years.  Today I just had to buy some more mini storage drawers because my 20K pieces or so need more room to stretch out.

But I just do not see the appeal of these Minecraft sets.

I buy LEGO sets for 2 reasons:  my kids or I might like to play with the models, and/or they have cool pieces that I want to use in other builds.   These Minecraft sets seem skimpy in both regards.  My money is best used for other sets or things like Bricklink/Pickabrick, IMO.

Yea. Minecraft is cool because you can do some shiat that you can't do with LEGO pieces. LEGO is cool because you can do some shiat you can't do in Minecraft. But trying to combine the two seems to give you an inferior product.

/The LEGO monsters and animals are pretty cool though

Actually, there were a couple companies which made plastic building block before Lego.  I have my mother's set from when she was a child in the 1950s, and a couple other sets I've picked up.

Those look horrible, and I like Minecraft and Lego.

Wow that Back to the Future set looks *awful*

Was there not just an NPR story about how making these licensed sets (Harry Potter, etc) are increasing sales but murdering their bottom line?
