Pros & Cons
The gullivar of online games, Minecraft was the fastest growing video game in 2012. Capitalizing on its popularity, LEGO has 'crafted' a Lilliputian version of the virtual world - the LEGO Minecraft 21102.
Lego and Minecraft enthusiasts couldn't be more pleased with LEGO's offering. As one reviewer puts it, "it's excellent for kids or fans of the game, honestly you could rebuild some pretty awesome (structures) as an homage to things you built in-game."
With over 450 pieces, Lego lovers can now bring tangible 3 D life to their favorite virtual structures. With unlimited customizable building options, the sky is the limit here! While tweens, teens and even older 'kids' have a blast with these blocks, they are too miniature for very young LEGO players. Even for some seasoned players the tiny pieces and the micro scale is something that needs some getting used to.
These lightweight and durable pieces come with a steep price tag, but then if it isn't pricey would it be LEGO?!
Overall the LEGO Minecraft 21102 is a good buy if you have hard core LEGO and Minecraft aficionados at home, but moms, watch out for a fight between dad and the boys! You might just have to play referee!
