LEGO Minecraft!

Mojang and the LEGO group have finally shown off the first official pieces of Minecraft LEGO to the world.
The set will be released this summer for $34.99 in the US, each set will contain four modular cubes and the surface of each can be removed to reveal mines and resources hidden underneath. Steve and a Creeper will also be included in the set.
Minecraft creator Markus “Notch” Perrson said at a press conference today:
“I played a lot with Lego bricks as a child, and that’s influenced how I make games. I prefer games with levels that are modifiable. I don’t like static levels. There are problems of scaling. Minecraft has huge long tunnels, and you can’t really fit that in to a living room. But I think the Lego guys have created something that’s really great, that really feels like Minecraft.
