LEGO announced a new Minecraft set on Thursday that will make you want to get to building immediately. The new Mountain Cave set is due for release on July 1 and clocks in at a staggering 2,863 pieces. When finished this monstrosity will stand an impressive 12-inches (31cm) high, 20-inches (53cm) wide and 11-inches (29cm) deep.
What is included is pretty darn impressive:
- Includes 2 minifigures: Steve and Alex, plus a cave spider, wolf, baby wolf, slime, 2 small slimes, 2 bats, zombie, enderman, skeleton, sheep and a charged Creeper.
- Features a minecart track with an integrated redstone-powered minecart elevator; 2 minecarts; first-night shelter with bed, crafting table and torch; a mountaintop shelter with bed, torch and furnace; plus a light brick, trees, waterfall, lava and extra torches.
- Open up the model to access the detailed interior and remodel with easy-to-connect modular sections.
- Remove the diamond ore elements and activate the lava burst function.
- Activate the revolving cave-spider spawner.
- Trigger the charged Creeper™ explosion function.
- Jump aboard the minecart and race around the track, and travel to the mountaintop aboard the redstone powered minecart elevator.
- Blast through the mountain with the TNT to extend the rail track.
- Position the light brick to illuminate the rotating spider-spawner, wall of redstone, jack o'lantern, first-night-shelter, furnace, lava or the torch above the cave entrance.
- Enjoy easy access to the detailed interior.
- Put on your golden armor, grab your diamond sword and shield, and prepare for battle!
- Weapons include a sword and a bow.
- Accessory elements include a Minecraft™ clock, spider eyes, signs, map, golden armor, shield, TNT and 8 ore style elements, including diamond, lapis lazuli, emerald, redstone, golden, iron and 2 coal ores.
- Easy-to-reconfigure, modular design—choose from 3 different model configurations.
I did a hands-on with the first Minecraft set about five years ago… things have progressed a tiny bit.
