A big deal has been made about the growing initiative to convince the Lego Group to start creating a new product line based on Minecraft. Mojang has also stated that they are in their own talks with the company.
But why? Minecraft is essentially already Lego. Digital Lego. Iâ€™ll admit that a set of instructions for recreating a scene from Minecraft in Lego could be useful, and an interesting project to undertake. But to release an official series of sets? It seems a little excessive. Itâ€™s like using Lego toâ€¦ recreate something that already exists as Lego.
Perhaps Mojang needs to add Lego bricks to Minecraft. Maybe then I’ll understand the appeal.
