The most popular Lego-like video game ever is getting official Legos. We're getting Minecraft Lego sets, people.
Back in December, the people who make Minecraft petitioned LegoCuusoo, an official branch of the Lego company, to make some Minecraft Lego. That's what the Cuusoo people are there for. You ask. They count the amount of people who petition.
Today, the people at Lego Cuussoo said there is enough support (more than 10,000 people on board!) and the idea passes muster:
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.
What'll we get? Hopefully some sets that look as terrific as the concepts that Mojang submitted to get the ball rolling. We've got images of two of them here, one up top from Michael Thomas (suparMacho) and one here from the talented koalaexpert.
Some people hope that their favorite games will be turned into major motion pictures? For others, I think a Lego set will do just fine.
