There's actually two new sets. :PAnd although indicated that they're up for preorder... I don't see any way to add them to your bag and place the order.~|ET|~

More Minecraft sets? Maybe they should make a whole new line of Lego for this.

^You don't say? Anywhoo, $35 is waaay too much.

For over 460 pieces each, many of which are in rare or exclusive colors? I think the price seems plenty reasonable.It's good to see evidence that a LEGO Cuusoo product, if successful, can evolve into an ongoing licensing agreement. A lot of people love the idea of themes of their favorite franchises, but struggle with narrowing it down to a single set. This sort of thing gives a very strong incentive for selecting one concept for a set that will leave a great first impression, and letting sales determine if the market can handle a wider product line.These sets are great quality, with a unique aesthetic that really does call to mind the look of a Minecraft world. As parts packs they will also definitely be useful to builders, with lots of small plates and tiles for use in mosaics or brick art. The figures are cute with their slightly simplified and appropriately blocky designs. I hope these sets do as well as the previous one did!

The price-per-part is actually decent, and reasonable when you consider so many pieces are tiny 1x1s.

 

Anyways, my only gripe is that there's no clear stand or anything for the Ghasts.

The whole Ghast is built upside-down. The part on the top of his head is a 2x2 inverted tile, a part that debuted in last year's sets.

Never having played Minecraft those names mean absolutely nothing to me... but darn it if there aren't a lot of nice pieces in that set. It's worth buying just for them.
