For those who feel that an official product is redundant or even unnecessary, take note of its defining characteristic: little pieces that cover up the Lego notches. They also help add color to terrain and foliage.
You also have two of the most recognized faces from the game, Steve and the Creeper, as part of the package.
The set is available for pre-order via J!NX, with an asking price of $34.99. It ships sometimes this summer, so until, everyone will have to make do with normal Legos. Or simply watch the makers of the game play with their set:
- Game developer proposes marriage ... in a game
- ThinkGeek and Mojang Build on Licensing Deal
- 'Indie Game: The Movie' set to make its debut at Sundance
