Minecraft 21137 The Mountain Cave revealed

Posted by ,

LEGO has been teasing out snippets of the image of this year's direct-to-consumer Minecraft set 21137 The Mountain Cave on Instagram and elsewhere over the last few days.

Today, the final part of the jigsaw was revealed allowing the entire set to be viewed.

I don't think price and piece count are known yet but it certainly looks to be a hefty set that'll command a handsome sum.

Thanks to Chewk on Eurobricks for the composite image.

AEWSOME! Any idea how much it'll retail for? Is it a store exclusive? If so, to what store and where?

shop.LEGO.com and brand stores, probably c.US$200.

This looks WAY bigger than The Village .. and that's already at $200 ... The piece count looks to be around double .. but I think $400 will be a very difficult price point .... $200 will definitely be a steal just to get those bricks

You may well be right, but it's probably mostly hollow at the back to keep the price down.

I can't see anyone wanting to spend over $200 on a set comprising mostly basic bricks.

Lego said it is 3.36 kg of bricks. The Village was something like 3kg. So price is probably 225-250€.

Very quick comment for now, but I like what I'm seeing. Lots of new elements and mobs. I'd love to see what is behind the facade.

Wow that is impressive and I quite like the game but probably not enough to buy a d2c from minecraft, but I am more looking forward to the reveal of the next star wars UCS set (there is usually 2 every year right?)

Sinthoras - the 3kg weight on the Village was with box and instructions (2.949kg). I'd imagine the weight of the bricks at more like 1.8kg (using bricklink weights)

The full on weight of this set is allegedly 5.09kg, a full 2kg more.

Seeing as they've teased 3.36kg of that as BRICKS, this is nearly double the weight of ABS!!!

@Huw: One of the Facebook teasers said it was the biggest LEGO Minecraft set ever, so I think it's safe to assume it'll be priced higher than the village. And frankly, I remember AFOLs being just as skeptical about people's willingness to buy The Village, yet presumably it's sold well if LEGO is already releasing yet another mega-set.

Suffice it to say that kids who like a licensed set probably don't care that much how basic the bricks are as long as it's a faithful rendition of its subject. Even among us AFOLs I rarely see people talk about https://brickset.com/sets/3723-1/LEGO-Mini-Figure as if it were any sort of ripoff, and it was basically 1849 basic bricks and plates for the equivalent of $212 2014 dollars!

A purple pickaxe? There is no such item in vanilla Minecraft... yet...

A hint at a future update perhaps?

The set looks pretty awesome. Although, I can't imagine myself paying about $200 on a minecraft set.

@mr.bob The Purple weapons mean enchanted weapons, I'm guessing.

Supercharged creeper? Wow, never before have I felt such fear looking at a Lego set :P

OMG that's is amaizing big, now imagine a Lego SW Jedi Temple/Palpatine Palace.

It will cost eleventy gazillion dollars.

Oooh! I like it! Probably never going to get it, but this looks splendid!

Those bats are soo cute : ) --And the large slime looks great!

I am not really hyped. Every LEGO Minecraft set more expensive than the Jungle Tree Fort is overpriced.

Missed out on the mine, so this looks appealing. I wonder how modular it is?

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

Imho it does look like a grey blob of bricks with a bunch of rails and tiny trees on top, very boring.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Why so expensive!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

There is only one word to describe this set...
WOW!

Gravatar
By in Sweden,

Now, that's a lot of grey blocks. Still, looks quite interesting (for a Minecraft set :)

I am not really into Minecraft, having bought just one set via ebay second hand to check out whether it might be worth it. To me it's more or less just an assortment of basic bricks which I can get for a fraction of the cost (and in more varied colours to boot) if I buy some Creative brick boxes.
Then again, this set at least looks quite interesting compared to other Minecraft sets, plus it does the name justice more than many other sets of the theme as it is an actual MINE ;-)
But sets that cost 200 Euro and more to me have to be more than just a pile of basic bricks. I mean, compare this to a Disney Castle, GB Firehouse Headquarter, an Assembly Square, a Tower Bridge, Slave I, etc.
With that in mind I can't fathom why anyone would want to buy even an admittedly giant Minecraft set like this.

Gravatar
By in Denmark,

The box size is indicated as 58.2 x 48 x 17 cm, this corresponding to Disney Castle and GB Firehouse Headquarter.

So, a big volume of bricks!

I really hope that big slime appears in cheaper sets, otherwise I'm going to have to eBay it...

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I wonder how much it'll be in England? Awesome set tho

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I like that minecraft are basic bricks, but I don't like the prices on them. As someone else has said if you just want some, brown, green, grey bricks, you could pick those up somewhere else cheaper.

Gravatar

@Cindipool Bricklink it, it's cheaper

And this is what they're using their last plastic? Really? I'm disappointed. LEGO's normal ABS plastic mass won't last over 2019, so I really hope they will make something cool before it runs out. This is not what I want to see.
Please LEGO, make something big and imposing like this, but not in Minecraft! :(

By in United Kingdom,

I like this, but I won't buy it. LOL at that sign, though - props to the graphic designers!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

@speedorz forever - is there a way in Bricklink to easily see the weight of the bricks in a set? I know it has the overall weight including instructions etc.

Gravatar
By in United States,

This set looks amazing!

I would have loved to see Helm's Deep in that size and brick count, but Minecraft? Meh.

I got more excited the more i looked at it like come on CHARGED CREEPERS!!!!!

I love the look of it! I get that not everyone loves Lego Minecraft and it basically comes down to what you like and how you relate to the hobby. I like the concept of Lego Minecraft for a number of reasons: I like the game it's based on, I like the potential of combining different sets and adding mocs to realise wast landscapes and I like the "blockiness" of it because it harbours a feeling of what the core essentials of this hobby is and what it was when I was younger. I'm no purist but a Minecraft landscape is something I'll interact with more than just another Star Wars UCS set that will collect dust on a shelf (I do love them as well and have a number of them).

Gravatar

I'm not interested enough in Minecraft to buy the Village at discount. So I probably won't buy this unless it ever goes to 50%- 60% of whatever inflated RRP TLG give it.
More new elements might have made it more tempting?

Things I've wanted in LEGO Minecraft:

Charged Creepers
More colors of Sheep
Baby Wolves
Angry Wolves
Zombies in armor like Skeletons we've gotten in the past
Bigger Slimes
Bats
Signs

All of them have been delivered in one set!

I also want to see some Ender City sets. One for the tower and one for the ships. But regardless, this is awesome.

No way is this going to be $200, it's easily $300-$350. So no one will be touching this set with a ten foot pole.

21128 The Village must have been a monster hit so TLG now feels confident that also this massive set will fly from the shelves. Love it!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

bloody hell look at the size of that thing.

though, if I'm honest, disappointed to find the big slime isn't made up of smaller ones to represent the way they split

Gravatar
By in Sweden,

So MUCH grey 2 x 4 and 2 x 2! Anyway it looks pretty nice, i do want to see the inside.

Gravatar
By in United States,

As a fan of LEGO landscapes and structures (as well as Minecraft), this is very appealing to me. I was sorry to miss out on The Cave, but this is even better as it is so much more fleshed out... although probably up to 3x the price. I look forward to seeing the exact price and piece count. Also very curious about the back of it, and to see if it will have different reconfigurations like the other recent Minecraft sets.

I wanted Lego minecraft to do different characters in stead of Steve and Alex like you tubers

I consider this set as the Flagship set of the entire Minecraft theme. This is going to be the 'big daddy' that encapsultes LEGO and Minecraft together. I am not saying that there have not been some other excellent sets in the theme but I am saying this will be the THE set that would represent LEGO Minecraft at its best and as a completely standalone LEGO Minecraft set. Also as we have not even seen the interior this can only get better in my opinion. Yes this theme is not for everyone but I cannot think of a theme that fits 'hand in glove' better with LEGO than Minecraft. My bank account will needless to say.

(cannot seem to edit my post above) My bank account will needless to say be emptied.

Noones mentioned it yet but there is an abundance of technic pieces which are not common in minecraft sets. I believe there are two cranks visible, one on top of the snow at the top-right, and one at the bottom of the waterfall in bottom-right. I believe the top one has some mechanism to kick the carts down the slope, no clue on the second crank.

I never understood the whole Minecraft hype. Whatever price they ask is to high for me.
