LEGO Cuuso is a project that takes ideas from the LEGO fan community and, with the support of enough fans and the approval of LEGO, turns them into actual LEGO sets. Mojang, the company behind Minecraft, has created a project for their cult favorite block busting and building game. If you head to the Minecraft project page on LEGO Cuuso and support it, we all may actually be able to see an official LEGO Minecraft set.
All it takes is 10,000 supporters before the project will be submitted to the LEGO company for review. If the company approves it, a set will be made and sold to the masses. Knowing the Minecraft community, that 10,000 supporter mark will be met and exceeded before the day is out.
As of writing this article, there have only been around 750 supporters of the project. However, Minecraft creator and community favorite, Markus “Notch” Persson just Retweeted a link to the LEGO Cuuso page; of course, his kajillions of followers have since slowed the site to a crawl. I’ve been having problems simply refreshing the page following Notch’s Tweet.
If this link is still down when you’re reading this story, remember to visit this page and try once more in an hour or so. I’m certain Notch‘s decision to share the project with Minecraft‘s fan-base has all but exploded the LEGO Cuuso servers.
LEGO and Minecraft are almost too perfect of a pairing. In fact, when Minecraft first released in its alpha form, many fans took to explaining its principles to friends by saying that the game was like LEGO in a virtual, first-person space.
Seeing this happen would be outstanding. In fact, telling my wife that I just purchased a set of LEGO Minecraft may actually be one of the best things I’ll ever do. She might not care, but I will…and that’s all that matters.
