LEGO + Minecraft = most awesome geek toy ever

Like other geeks, we love Minecraft. And unsurprisingly, we also love LEGOs. So it made sense that the two combine to make the most awesome toy ever made for geeks via LEGO’s CUUSOO page. LEGO CUUSOO, for the uninitiated, allows the community to pitch ideas to the LEGO team and if there’s enough community traction behind it, it eventually gets made into an actual thing. Here’s the official word from LEGO:

Happy New Year! Since the Minecraft™ project reached 10,000 supporters on LEGO CUUSOO, many of you have been eagerly awaiting our update. Until now, the project has been in the LEGO Review—a stage before product development begins where a LEGO Jury evaluates the idea’s feasibility as a product and makes a decision.

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 and we can’t wait to show it to you—but we aren’t ready just yet. These things take time, so we appreciate your patience. More details are to come.

This means our favorite ABS construction toy will soon meet our favorite virtual construction game soon. Really soon. You better believe that we’ll let you guys know when these things are finally available for purchase.
