According to information received by Brick Fanatics, next year will see the release of LEGO Minecraft buildable action figures. Rather than being typical constraction builds like BIONICLE, these figures are expected to combine elements from the constraction system with more traditional System pieces. The figures are expected to be approximately six inches tall. This information should be treated as rumour until any official announcement is made by the LEGO Group.
The first Minecraft set was launched in 2012, when fans rallied on LEGO Ideas to get 21102 Minecraft Micro World: The Forest to be the first project to achieve 10,000 votes. Since then, Minecraft has become a smash hit with children, increasing its grip on the gaming world for the younger market. As a result, the LEGO Group has had a traditional minifigure theme running since 2014 that might have little appeal for adult fans, but has continued to expand since and is popular with children.
