Before video games, LEGOs were the way to express creativity and build whatever came to mind. Then came Minecraft, the PC sandbox-adventure game with a built in creation mode that allowed you to build virtually whatever you could think of using square blocks. Two similar concepts built in two totally different mediums, it now appears the two will join forces.
LEGO has announced plans to release an official line of LEGO sets inspired by Minecraft. The idea came to mind when a user vote on LEGO's Cuusoo website was taken, which asked for public pitches on new toy lines to create.
"Thanks to our community for your great inspirate!"
"Seeing LEGO Minecraft sets is also our dream, so we linked to one of the projects. It’s clear to us that there are many creative people with good ideas for this and we want to throw our own hat into the ring and start this project to bring the best LEGO Minecraft builders together," Mojang said on Cuusoo.
"Minecraft is about placing blocks to build anything you can imagine in the virtual world. You can build anything you imagine with LEGO bricks in the physical world. Minecraft and LEGO were meant to be together."
Honestly, it was only a matter of time before someone saw the potential here and capitalized on it.
