Minecraft Coming to the LEGO Universe

Fans of LEGO and Minecraft can rejoice: yesterday LEGO announced their approval of a LEGO-based Minecraft series.

The project originated in the LEGO CUUSOO system, LEGO’s DIY platform where fans can promote ideas and bring them to LEGO’s attention. The Minecraft initiative broke vote records by receiving over 10,000 supporting votes in a mere 48 hours. You can read the official LEGO announcement here and check out some of the CUUSOO submission models (from which the above photo is culled) here.

Jason Fitzpatrick is a warranty-voiding DIYer who spends his days cracking opening cases and wrestling with code so you don't have to. If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.
