For the past few days LEGO Minecraft’s various social media sites have been sharing some teasers on what is dubbed to be THE largest LEGO Minecraft set ever. The announcement was made in April and since then, many have speculated that it will be the biggest LEGO Minecraft set to date, besting the title from The Village (21128) set which sports a 1,600+ piece count. Based on the trail of bread crumbs released by LEGO about its LEGO Minecraft The Mountain Cave (21137) set, we know that its overall weight is at 3.36 kg (more than a quarter of a kilogram as compared to 21128), it has a mine track play feature, and a couple of new mobs such as a bat, a pair of angry wolves, a charged Creeper, and a giant Slime.
Here’s how the trail of clues look like as scattered across LEGO Minecraft’s social media sites.
Thanks to Eurobricks member Chewk, we have this composite of the various images released by LEGO during the past days. Put together, this is how the Mountain Cave looks like.
It seems that the LEGO Minecraft The Mountain Cave (21137) is set to be the next D2C exclusive scheduled for an early VIP access from June 15-30 as hinted in LEGO’s June Store Calendar. We don’t have the actual piece count nor the retail price for this but we can guess that it may be around the $300 price point.
So what do you think of The Mountain Cave brick fans? Will it offer tons of play features that will make other LEGO Minecraft sets shy in comparison? Let us know in the comments below.

Ahead of its release next month, LEGO Minecraft has recently uploaded a designer video of its latest modular set, The Fortress (21127). Max from the LEGO Minecraft team took time to show the various features of the set which includes minifigures of Steve wearing golden pants (which compliments his golden armor), 3 skeletons, a horse with its new head element and a sheep. Out of the box, you’ll also get to build its separate modules which you can build and connect in any way that you want. Watch this.
Similar to the LEGO Minecraft – The Village (21128), The Fortress is noticeably modular which allows you to come up with so many ways on how to recreate the set. Using the modules and its unique connectors, you can either build a wall or come up with a watch tower depending on how far you’ll allow your imagination to fly. Take a look at these images to have a better idea.
The LEGO Minecraft – The Fortress (21127) will come in at 984 pieces and will retail at $109.99. Though it was mentioned already in LEGO’s September Store Calendar, it’s still yet to appear at shop.LEGO.com. We’ll keep you posted once new info comes in about this awesome set, so stay tuned here at the Brick Show!
Hot off the trail of LEGO’s Collectible Minifigures Series 16 (71013) comes another minifig collection that will surely be a hit among LEGO and Minecraft fans. The LEGO Minecraft Team has recently announced via their Facebook page that they will be releasing for the first time ever, two Skin Packs that are basically new exclusive minifigures that can complement any LEGO Minecraft sets, as The Brick Fan reports. The Skin Packs will have set numbers 853609 and 853610 assigned to them.
The Skin Packs include eight minifigures which includes a Camouflage wearing character, your usual Normal Guy in an everyday shirt, the Captain of the ship, a Cyborg looking minifigure, Knight (which looks like Boba Fett actually), a Crafter, Adventurer (which seems to take hint from Han Solo) and what the LEGO Minecraft Team refers to as the Full Moon guy.
We don’t have any info yet with regards to pricing, and where to get them but its September release date is not that far away so expect LEGO to be revealing more in the next few weeks. Given their serial numbers, it may suggest that they maybe exclusively available at all LEGO Brand Stores and at shop.LEGO.com.
Watch this video for a closer look of the LEGO Minecraft Collectible Skin Packs.
Thanks to The Brick Fan for the heads up.
Last April, LEGO launched its first Minecraft Competition dubbed as Classic Tales. The idea behind the contest is for LEGO Minecraft fans to stretch their building creativity and problem solving skills to help Alex and Steve to escape a tight spot or a challenge that they find themselves in. Participants are encouraged to build their own solutions or models, snap a photo, and upload their entries via the contest’s Facebook page. Running for four weeks in a row, the team of designers behind the LEGO Minecraft series will determine the most creative contribution and will co-create exciting stop motion stories out of these.
The winning contributions were rendered in four LEGO Minecraft stop-motion animations which were featured on LEGO’s YouTube channel on April 18 and 29 respectively. We’ve compiled the LEGO Minecraft – Classic Tales videos right here in case you missed them last April.
After a long overdue promise to fans, the LEGO Minecraft design team finally came up with a behind-the-scenes video highlighting the creative process that went through in making the Classic Tales episodes. From painstakingly combing through all the entries, choosing the best and most creative solution, and then brainstorming for the most entertaining storyboard, the LEGO Minecraft design team came up with the most creative solutions for Alex and Steve that uniquely carries LEGO’s brand of fun and humor. Watch their mini-documentation here.
The winners for the contest each received the shop@home exclusive LEGO Minecraft The Village (21128) coming in at 1,600 pieces and features 11 minifigures, the set retails at $199.99.
The LEGO Minecraft Challenge – Classic Tales may long be over, but the endless opportunities for creative problem solving fun will always be around. After all, this is what LEGO is all about as this latest LEGO promotional video exemplifies.
For you Minecraft fans, an image of the new Series 2 Minecraft Overworld Steve & Horse has been released today. The new box set will include a fully articulated Steve figure and a white horse. The set will also include an apple and a hay bale. The set will retail around $16.99 and will be available sometime this August.
The latest LEGO Minecraft set The End is now available on J!NX to order for $34.99. This is a microworld set that features a buildable world as well as the Ender Dragon and Enderman Micromob figures.
BrickShop.nl has listed 6 new LEGO Minecraft sets. Interestingly, many are speculating that these are the highly anticipated minifigure scale sets that LEGO has said is coming later this year.
