New Minecraft Lego sets surface

Steve returns as a minifigure in two new scenes

Pictures of two new Lego Minecraft sets show a re-sized world, with main character Steve enlarged into a minifigure-sized character.

The Cave and The Farm depict two familiar scenarios for Minecraft players according to images posted on Lego enthusiast site The Brick Fan: a lava-splashed cave with treasure and looming zombie and spider, and a farm with animal pen, peaceful stream, and lurking skeleton archer.

Previous Lego Minecraft sets depicted the blocky, procedurally generated worlds on a 'micro' scale, letting fans assemble a little diorama that could be pulled apart to reveal the caves underneath. The new sets are closer to typical Lego products complete with blocky scenes, minifigures, and custom accessories.

Retail descriptions for The Farm set hint at further Lego scenes, including one called 'The First Night'.

The Cave (21113)
Venture into The Cave on a dangerous quest for vital resources! Wield the iron pickaxe to dig and battle against hostile zombie and spider mobs. Blast out valuable ores and minerals with the TNT and combine the flowing water and lava to create precious obsidian! When you're done battling and mining, restore your energy levels with the chest of bread. Proceed with caution! Rebuild the set for more LEGO Minecraft creations! Includes 2 minifigures with assorted accessories: Steve and a zombie, plus a spider.

The Farm (21114)
Yield renewable resources with The Farm! You'll need food to survive, so fence in the livestock and channel the flowing water to nurture the crops. Harvest pumpkins, wheat, sugar cane and carrots. Use the crafting table to create a pumpkin helmet or jack-o-lantern. But watch out for the skeleton with his bow and arrow after nightfall! Rebuild the set for more LEGO Minecraft creations or combine with 21115 The First Night and other sets in the series for an even bigger Minecraft adventure!
