LEGO and Minecraft - a match made in heaven?

Minecraft has been a popular staple of the LEGO range since it was first introduced as part of the LEGO Cuusoo/Ideas range back in 2013. Originally released as three LEGO microworlds, throughout the following years LEGO Minecraft expanded to cover the game we all know and love today.

Now with over 70 LEGO Minecraft sets available in the wild, we thought it was time to identify which were the largest of them all! So grab your golden armour, pickaxes and plenty of torches. It's time we went on a LEGO Minecraft adventure!

Enter The Mine at your own risk! You’ll need to don your iron armor for this dangerous expedition.

Then load up the precious ores, jump aboard the minecart and hurtle past the Creeper, zombie and skeleton, using the iron sword to keep them at bay until you’re safely above ground. All in a days work for a LEGO Minecraft hero!
