More Minecraft sets on the way?

Posted by ,
Minecraft Micro World: The Forest

Hungarian site KockaMania claims to have information which suggests that LEGO is to release two more Minecraft sets, named simply at this stage as 21105 - Minecraft II and 21106 - Minecraft III.

It's entirely plausible given (a) the first one was immensely popular (well, in the USA at least) and (b) the numbers quoted leave gaps for the BTTF 21103 and the t.b.a set that'll be produced following the autumn 2012 review.

What do you think? Can't wait to get your hands on them, or that LEGO should concentrate their efforts on getting some of the more interesting Cuusoo 'winners' through review?

Update: AMthedude has pointed out that the instruction books for 21102 on lego.com were updated just a few days ago, changing the set name on the front cover from "Micro World" to "Micro World - The Forest". Why would LEGO do that if not to differentiate it from other Minecraft sets?

I still need to get the Lego Minecraft Micro World (21102) but cant wait for the new ones!

Personally, I don't have any great enthusiasm for Minecraft, but it does give me hope that multiple sets could be produced from a single Cuusoo project.

I started playing the Minecraft Pocket Edition on my Kindle Fire about three weeks ago, and after a week I bought the, now first, set which I hadn't much interest in previously. I really hope this is true!

I've got my Lego Minecraft Micro set on my desk at work and I'd love to see more sets released in a similar style.

I think this is very likely. The instruction booklets on lego.com for 21102 were updated just a few days ago with the set name on the front cover changed from simply "Micro World" to "Micro World - The Forest". I can only imagine that means that we'll be getting more Minecraft sets based on different biomes.

My Lego Minecraft set has taken pride of place on my desk ever since I got it, and I very much look forward to expanding it if this is true!

TLG needs to buy time before releasing the BTTF set. They can't realistically release that until the end of 2014 or in 2015 when the 30th anniversary is coming up.

I really hope so, I have three of the original one because it gets more awesome the more you add. Having new different ones on top would be awesome! Hopefully they figure out how to make some new creatures from the game too like Endermen, or Mooshrooms.

I did wonder if they were going to make a set of the nether too though, either way it's awesome news and fingers crossed they'll be here soon.

I hope it true, i have absolutely no imagination when it comes to making lego sets, i love the moc's they put together of 6 of the original minecraft sets but would require to much creative effort from myself to build, I hope they make bigger ones, or make these new ones fit onto the existing one much like modular buildings for increasingly bigger more impressive set.

I am looking very forward to hearing more news, I think TLG should make the nether (with a nether portal) and they should also make maybe a snowy scene or a sandy scene, the end (where the dragon is) would also be very cool and there could also be a new mould for the dragon, either way im still going to get them both and add them to my collection assuming they are going to be similar to the original set :-D

Will be interesting to see if they stick to the same size and price range or expand higher. Makes sense from a financial standpoint, The first one has been at or near the top of the sales charts for over 6 months now in the US

NO!!! One is enough!

I have no interest in them, but if they can get $50 for a collection of bricks that would normally be $25 in any other set, go for it!

I'm really happy to read this. I got my set onky last month at my Lego store. I hope the distribution of them is better this time. The store in Oberhausen didn't have them until this year.
I'm not sure if I will buy a second one. But I really like the set, even though the Micromobs are not to scale.

LEGO + Minecraft was a match made in heaven, and I'm glad the success of the first set has (seemingly) gotten them to agree to make more sets. Fingers crossed these other sets include more mobs (zombie, skeleton, maybe some animals) too.

I'll most likely buy both as I love the original Minecraft set, but more importantly I need the BTTF set! So many potential great micromobs....

It is most likely they will do a desert world, a jungle world and a snow world. They might do a nether world too if the sets are popular enough and they should definitely bring out some new mobs with these sets.

On a side note, I find it interesting that although the set numbering of CUUSOO sets seem to be based on the order of production, there is a gap of a set with #21104 in between the ones sets now known... I suppose that could only mean that one of the sets from the last review period must have passed into set design phase. I wonder which one it is?

I would like to see Lego do more Minecraft sets, mainly because I haven't had a chance to get the last one they made.

I would really like to see new monsters such as the zombie!

I wonder if they'll try to expand the range of prices, making it more like a normal theme. A tiny $10 minecraft set and a big $80 one would be a lot more interesting than just two more $35 ones.

I don't know why the first set was so cool... Minecraft may be awesome (never played it) and Lego is awesome, but the model is not playable. In fact, personally I thought/think it looks horribly ugly.

Can anyone convince my why this news is so awesome?

I am a bit apathetic to this. I got hooked to Minecraft at college, and still enjoy playing it when I can. However I do not like the current set enough to buy it, and I don't see what more can be done with future sets (since the current set captures all the core elements of the game). However I can already imagine future sets would become massive collector's items seeing the demand for the first one.

Personally I couldn't care less about Minecraft. A few years ago I would have said, if it makes a profit and keeps the company going then go for it. Now that they're one of the best performing companies in the world I'd rather see something more interesting take up a production slot. Train carriages or straight track anyone?

This is kinda making me want to order the minecraft set because I don't actually have one.

I don't have the first minecraft set or the game for that matter, but this gives me hope that from cusso we may be able to get more that 1set and maybe a whole theme in the future

Minecraft is an awesome game, and like lego it is never ending fun and creativity. I love minecraft since, for me, it was like creating lego sets that I could go inside and explore. Lego and Minecraft go together so well. I am really looking forward to another biome or two coming out. I think it is great news.

I'm sure this will be a disappointment to the makers of the dozens of minecraft add-on projects currently on cuusoo.

If the news come true, hope that TLC can stress on those themes from Cuusoo project that public fans like, and they derserve more than one sets in the future. It shouldn't be that each Cuusoo project can only be reluctantly produced in one set.
I think other themes like BTTF and mini shop series have big potentials.

I think its a good idea to make more. The only reason i didn't want to but this one was because it was the only one.

Personally if I had a bit more money and had the option of seeing it in stores I would have more likely bought the first set. Although I am a fan of Minecraft, I would much rather see it with my eyes and then make my final decision. I just hate the fact it is a set that is online only, if the series do continue perhaps allow it to be sold in Lego stores?

I am glad that more than one set can come from a Cuusoo product, yet I fear that it will make the Fall 2012 review go on longer.

I had never heard of Minecraft until that became a set. I still don't know what Minecraft is, but I did buy that set, just because of the following it has. I have no intention of opening it or playing with it and I highly doubt I will pick up the others in the series. But isn't it odd that they are getting multiple set ideas out of one CUUSOO project, when the Modular Western Town was discarded (Licensing agreements they say), yet the MWT had multiple buildings which in themselves could be multiple sets.

I just found that interesting.

I do not find this news very exciting for me, unlike so many others here.
