For fans who feel that the LEGO Minecraft range has not gone big enough yet, this upcoming release has you covered – 21137 The Mountain Cave will be exclusively available at shop.LEGO.com and LEGO Stores from June 15 for VIPs and July 1 for everyone else.
The piece count for the set is 2,863, with a retail price of £259.99 ($249.99 in the USA and €249.99 in Germany). With LEGO Minecraft perceived as more appealing to younger fans, it will be interesting to see whether this larger release brings in the AFOLs or if parents are willing to drop the big money on such a large release.
