There’s some interesting news coming out of Eurobricks today. Forum member TomKraut has posted a link to the German LEGO Catalog for the second half of the year. We’ve already seen everything in the catalog and all the sets have been released or will be releasing in the next few months but on page 92-93, there is an advertisement for the LEGO Minecraft minifigure scale sets. There are no sets pictured but we get to see what appears to be the final renditions of the Steve and Creeper minifigures. Steve looks like any other minifigure except that he has a block head and carries a new pickaxe. The creeper looks to be brick-built like with many of the mobs in this wave of Minecraft sets.
We’ve already done a couple of posts previewing a few of the LEGO Minecraft sets although the may be just prototypes. The minifigure scale sets are scheduled for release around October of this year. We’re still waiting for the official images of them and hopefully we’ll see them soon now that the catalog is available.
