It wasn't long ago that the LEGO® CUUSOO project received overwhelming support from the Minecraft playerbase, and LEGO® heard you loud and clear. At that time, they agreed to move Minecraft-themed LEGO® projects into the review phase, where it would be decided if it would be a workable product. Now, that wait is over! The team had this to say on the subject:
Quote from LEGO® CUUSOO »
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.
It is expected that the first sets will be revealed in the near future. What kind of Minecraft projects do you think would be best in LEGO? Tell us below!

Check out this week's installment of the Curse Weekly Updates, with news about Minecraft, SWTOR, D3 and more!
I'd like to see bags of generic blocks, Minecraft is about freedom to build, I'd rather have it be like a random grab bag of blocks that i can build from there. Pre determined sets wouldn't really work because not much about minecraft is predetermined.
Lego with Minecraft finally!
The type of set I would like to be released is a base board that contains four different biomes together.
Or an NCP village set!
or a nether set, or all the neat things in Minecraft.
I think the best way to go would be to celebrate the creativity of Lego AND Minecraft not with set kits, but with sets of minecraft pieces that you are free to build up in any way you choose. Pretty much a big box of random minecraft legos
@Omnirock: Is that an actual statistic, or an educated guess? I always thought the ages of Minecraft players tended to be quite varied, and I can't really imagine that a majority could fall into a range of only three years. (On the other hand, I guess it would explain a lot!)
Anyway, it'll be pretty cool to see what they've come up with. I'd love to see a creeper minifigure!
