Lego Minecraft Is Happening!

It's happening! One of my favorite Lego projects ever is coming to life: Lego Minecraft! The company just announced it officially:

We're happy to announce that the Minecraft project on LEGO CUUSOO has passed the LEGO review and we are now developing a concept that celebrates the best aspects of building with the LEGO system and in Minecraft. We can't wait to show it to you-but it isn't ready just yet. These things take time, so we appreciate your patience. More details are to come.

Lego Minecraft is coming to life after 10,000 Lego and Minecraft fans voted it on Lego Cuusoo, an official site in which Lego fans can post their own creations and people can vote to make them a reality.

This is awesome news. Lego and Minecraft are a match made in heaven. [Lego Cuusoo]
