Rumored Names for New Minecraft Sets

Rumored Names for New Minecraft Sets

2 new LEGO Minecraft sets are coming soon. Rumored names for both these sets have surfaced. They will be called The Nether and The Village. The tentative release date for these sets should be September 1st for $34.99 each.

21105 LEGO Minecraft: The Nether

Based on the descriptions of the actual game from the Minecraft Wiki, I’d image the set to be full of grey rock blocks surrounded by orange and red tiles. There should also be a couple purple portal bricks along with random mob characters.

21106 LEGO Minecraft: The Village

Based on the description from the Minecraft Wiki, I’d expect this set to have tons of wooded and cobblestone cabins made up of brown or grey bricks. Several villagers should add to the scenery.
