What could possibly go together better than LEGO and Minecraft? 

Both help kids use their imagination and technical skills to build amazing worlds and creations and LEGO is perfect for bringing Minecraft off the screen and into the real world. With iconic characters like illagers, creepers, and Steve all available in LEGO form, these sets will delight any Minecraft fan.

We’ve picked out the 20 best LEGO Minecraft sets with famous scenes like The Creeper Mine and The Wither available to be recreated brick-by-brick along with The Modern Treehouse and The Waterfall Base. Of course, as with any LEGO set or Minecraft itself, you can ignore the instructions and just build whatever your imagination can come up with!

Unsurprisingly there are a lot of LEGO Minecraft sets out there which can make it hard to choose the ‘right’ one, especially as every gamer has different experiences in the game itself. So we’ve done our research and picked out the ones that have been rated by real families, eliminating any fake reviews.

1The Warped Forest 21168

Here is the Warped Forest with all its inhabitants for kids to build and create their own adventures! It includes four figures, the huntress with a bow and arrow and protective armor, a hoglin with a moveable head, two piglins armed with swords, and features such as rockfall and explosions. The huntress must cross landscapes of lava, falling rocks, and hostile creatures. 

Explosives are set off to bring down a tree to make a bridge for her to cross over the lava river. This is a dangerous forest and players will guide the characters around the challenges. The Hoglin even has a lever to make his head move (creepy!). If you’re looking for an eerie arena in which to throw your unwitting characters, this is the perfect one for you.

What we love

  • This is one of Minecraft’s most popular and familiar biomes
  • A small trigger makes the rocks come crashing down dramatically

What We Don't Like That Much

  • We’d love to see other characters from the nether region included in this set, like the ghast
The Warped Forest 21168

2The Creeper Mine 21155

The creeper is a ubiquitous character that can pop up at any time or location when you least expect it. These hostile creatures are sure to surprise the unwitting adventurer. This is a hugely popular LEGO set with the iconic creeper statue that marks the mine entrance and other characters and features. You will find Steve, a Minecraft blacksmith, and a husk as well as a creeper, a cow, and a bat figure. 

In this 834 piece set, Steve and the blacksmith mine for gold and are constantly beset by villainous creeper mobs and the husk. Another exciting feature is the blasting function to remove the rocks to mine for gold.

What we love

  • It has a clever treasure-drop function where you pull a lever and send the gold directly into the chest
  • The rail track and minecart actually work

What We Don't Like That Much

  • We’d love to see the torches actually flicker, providing an eerie atmosphere in a dark setting
The Creeper Mine 21155

3The Coral Reef 21164

 

This LEGO kit features plenty of amazing characters from the Minecraft universe, the only limit is your imagination as you construct games and scenarios to be acted out.

With this set, children have an authentic Minecraft experience including a thrilling sword fight with a drowned zombie as the amazing pufferfish pass by. Alex dives deep to search for hidden treasure surrounded by the colorful coral reef. This fantastic set comes with 92 pieces for plenty of satisfying building action.

What we love

  • The set makes an impressive display when completed
  • It contains special surprises such as a hidden treasure chest

What We Don't Like That Much

This is a replica of the Minecraft Fortress with a prison with barred windows, lookout towers, farm, and water areas. The characters included are Steve, a buildable horse, three skeleton minifigures, a sheep, a golden helmet and armor, and other accessories that are representative of the online game. One awesome feature is the pressure plate that opens the fortress doors.

The special accessories such as a hay bale for feeding the livestock, a weapon’s chest, armor stand, and crafting table make this very realistic when compared to the online game. The waterfall is an awesome addition.

What we love

  • With 984 pieces, this is a very challenging and rewarding activity
  • It provides endless fun with three main configurations, but you can also create your own

What We Don't Like That Much

All of your favorite characters are included in The First Adventure LEGO set. Steve, Alex, a dyed cat, a skeleton, a horned sheep, and a moobloom are all ready for any adventure you can imagine! 

With 542 pieces, it’s a great puzzle for children eight years and up and is also an attractive collection piece for adults. This is one of Minecraft’s most popular and exciting play environments that keeps the action going even when the electronics are turned off. 

As the hostile mobs attack, you can use hidden traps and other methods to repel the villains. The waterfall elevator is a cool way to travel between levels.

What we love

  • It provides 3D-level action for hours of entertainment
  • It comes with different weapons for each character to use

What We Don't Like That Much

  • We would love it even more if the playscape were slightly larger

6The Bee Farm 21165

The Bee Farm is not only great fun, but it is also educational as children learn about beekeeping while enjoying an adventurous game. The beekeeper has elytra wings and there is one villager included, alongside four friendly bees, four angry bees, as well as baby sheep. With the four friendly bees, children learn about how they help flowers and crops grow, and they will help the beekeeper fend off the four angry bees. 

The angry bees cause havoc to the sheep and frighten the villagers while they fly around the environment. The playscape can be arranged in multiple ways as players create different scenarios. The tree even has a hidden hideout space for bees!

What we love

  • The rotatable flying feature is a great addition
  • The wings on the beekeeper actually open and close

What We Don't Like That Much

You can build the farmhouse and castle separately or connect them for one large environment. 

The package comes with a free LEGO building app that includes interactive games and guides for the online game. It also gives examples of alternative builds with instructions. Children can find an online game and copy it in real-time with this Crafting Box.

What we love

  • You get clear instructions for the two buildings, as well as three alternative possible builds
  • Each piece, character, and accessory perfectly resemble their counterparts from the game

What We Don't Like That Much

  • This set is a little more complex, so a helping hand may be required from time to time
The Crafting Box 3.0 21161

8The Illager Raid 21160

This set is all about destroying villains! It features three sections of a peaceful village under attack by a hostile mob and their mighty ravager beast. A small lever will open and close the biting beast’s mouth ready to gobble up the pillagers. Here to save the day is a set of characters shrouded in mystery that help the villagers save their crops.

The roof of the set can be removed, so kids can continue play inside the structure. The set includes five buildable Minecraft figures plus a pig, weapons, an ocelot, and other accessories. Recreate a battle between good and ill(agers) with this fantastic set.

What we love

  • The villains are great for this game and can also be added to many other LEGO Minecraft sets

Defending against the invasion of skeletons is Alex with her trusty arrow dispenser! This set includes a pickaxe, one Skeleton with a bow, and an arrow dispenser which is used to flick arrows at the enemy. It contains 31 pieces and is the perfect supplement to existing Minecraft LEGO sets, or great as a set for traveling with.

The Skeleton Defense set is fantastic for beginners to the LEGO universe as it doesn’t have an overwhelming number of pieces. The skeleton is an awesome character and hard to defeat in the game, but with this package, anything is possible!

What we love

  • This is a great set for younger kids, as it’s interactive yet simple enough to build
  • The skeleton is one of the best Minecraft characters and is very popular with players

What We Don't Like That Much

The Skeleton Defense 30394

The fiery nether world comes to life with The Nether Fight set which contains some awesome accessories including buildable mushrooms, flames, and the player-favorite Minecraft TNT blasting function. Push the lever and watch the TNT blast away the magma blocks or the netherrack.

The set has two mini-figures and two buildable figures, including Alex and a Minecraft zombie pigman plus a wither skeleton and small magma cube figures. If you combine this set with other large sets like the castle the playing possibilities are truly endless. Watch out for the lava as you search for treasure in the nether with this fantastic set.

What we love

  • Alex is ready for action with an enchanted axe and iron armor
  • With only 84 pieces, this set is quick to assemble even for young children

What We Don't Like That Much

  • We would love if it contained a portal to the nether world
The Nether Fight 21139

11The Ocean Monument 21136

Ocean Monuments are rare in the online Minecraft game only to be found in the deepest part of the ocean. They are inhabited by elder guardians and are the only place where certain unique items can be found. This elaborate 1,122-piece building kit contains a lot of fun features such as a water sponge access function and a treasure chamber that actually opens, and a cave with a furnace. 

Play with Steve and Alex, as well as squid, a guardian that swivels around the monument, and an elder guardian that has a spring-loaded shooter. Make sure you hold your breath as you fight your way through the foes-of-the-deep in search of hidden treasure.

What we love

  • Contains an impressive number of accessories such as enchanted armor and golden blocks
  • This massive set has three different configurations

What We Don't Like That Much

The Ocean Monument 21136

12The Polar Igloo 21142

Situated in a snow-covered landscape, the 278 piece Polar Igloo is fantastic for those who don’t mind an ice-cold adventure! It contains many fun figures and accessories. Alex is ready for action alongside a buildable polar bear and baby. 

You can build an arrow dispenser and launch the flick missiles when the villains attack. If fish is on your menu, all you have to do is grab your fishing pole and you can catch fish from the ocean. This is an essential addition if you are creating your own Minecraft universe, providing a fantastic variety of features and new territory to explore.

What we love

  • The top of the igloo is removable, so you can help your characters warm up by the furnace or rest in bed
  • The inside of the igloo is fantastically furnished

What We Don't Like That Much

  • We wish there was more ice that the characters could skate over
The Polar Igloo 21142

13The Ice Spikes 21131

Ice Spikes are a great addition to any Minecraft LEGO collection. In the game, snow-covered biomes are rare, which makes this a great one to own. This set contains a library with an enchantment table, a shelter with a bed, and ladders. The many accessories include Steve’s iron armor and helmet as well as an enchanted pickaxe and lapis lazuli ore. You will also find torches, a banner, a chest, and crops. 

The minifigure in this set is Steve and the buildable figures include the hostile spider, snowman, snow golem, and baby cow. The towers are tall and the icy blue color is a great contrast to other Minecraft LEGO sets. Arriving with 454 pieces, this set is sure to prevent a wonderful challenge when building, yet the results are well worth the effort.

What we love

  • One great addition is the snowman to snow golem pop-up function. The weapons pop out of the ground
  • The instructions provide multiple configuration options

What We Don't Like That Much

  • The tower is a little unstable due to its size
The Ice Spikes 21131

14The Wither 21126

The Wither is a hostile boss mob that shoots explosive skulls at the unsuspecting player. This set contains a TNT cannon used to protect the nether fortress from this dangerous foe. The minifigures included are Steve, a wither, and two wither skeletons. The accessories include armor and a helmet, nether wart, nether quartz ore, as well as two blocks of TNT. 

It’s a challenge to build the TNT cannon but one that’s well worth it to fight the Wither Skeletons. The aim is to break down the wall and get the much-needed supplies inside the fortress including nether wart and mushrooms. The Wither set is an important addition to a collection of villains for hours of off-line Minecraft play. It’s also a wonderful set to pair up with other sets from the nether world.

What we love

  • The nether fortress has a tumbling wall and you can fold out the set to create more rooms
  • A great addition for those collecting and creating a full Minecraft universe

What We Don't Like That Much

  • Would be a great addition if it included two or three extra skulls
The Wither 21126

15The Modern Treehouse 21174

The Modern Treehouse has a lot of features and accessories that make it a hugely popular Minecraft LEGO kit. With a whopping 909 pieces, this playset is very versatile with four endlessly reconfigurable rooms that are packed with authentic Minecraft features, including a charged creeper, a panda and ocelot outfit, a zombie, a cat, and two chickens which are all recognizable from the online game.

There are four rooms to build, including a kitchen, bathroom, study, and bedroom, and you can add whichever accessories you want to each room. The multiple levels allow for endless creativity and even work as a fortress if you choose to have your characters defend against the hostile mobs!

What we love

  • The chickens are too cute
  • There are so many creative ways of using the many accessories

What We Don't Like That Much

  • We think it would be even more fun if it had an interactive feature, like an arrow dispenser or hidden traps
The Modern Treehouse 21174

16The Waterfall Base 21134

The Waterfall Base is the perfect addition to the Modern Treehouse set and the Fortress. It has a waterfall, a roof garden, four doors, and a secret lava entrance. Once the model is constructed, you can open the base to see the detailed interior where there is a furnace and three crafting tables. 

Steve and Alex are the minifigures included in this set along with a zombie. The buildable characters are Enderman, a dyed sheep, a cat, and many more. One popular combination is to pair this set with the existing large sets to help add diversity and challenge to the adventures your characters face. It creates an amazing playscape that Minecraft fans love.

What we love

  • Catch yourself dinner with the included fishing rod for Steve
  • The bedroom is under the waterfall, so you can see it above your head

What We Don't Like That Much

  • We would like it if the outside had as many details as the inside
The Waterfall Base 21134

17The Farm 21114

Minecraft landscapes have traditionally supported agriculture and this is one of the best sets for learning about plants and animals along with defending the farm against the villains. It has 262 pieces and provides a lovely challenge for Minecraft fans. But, as darkness falls, watch out for hostile enemies who seek to invade your farm!

Steve is included in this set, complete with his accessories. There is also a skeleton, a cow, a sheep, a shovel, and a large assortment of other typical Minecraft features to ensure the fun is never-ending. The water feature is a fantastic addition that adds depth to the set, as well as much-needed sustenance for the farm.

What we love

  • Includes plenty of accessories including a pumpkin helmet, two torches, a fence, and a waterfall
  • Since it is a universal part of Minecraft gameplay, the farm works well with almost all the other biomes

What We Don't Like That Much

  • We’d love to see some other crops featuring, such as potatoes
The Farm 21114

18Alex BigFig with Chicken 21149

Here you have a large, five-inch, figure of Alex that you build along with her diamond sword and Minecraft chicken. The arms can be arranged into several dynamic poses and is a great piece for your desk or on a shelf. This is a relatively straightforward set with 160 pieces and is recommended for children seven years and up. 

This BigFig works with all other LEGO sets, and you can also get Steve and Skeleton BigFigs. What’s more, the Alex figure can also serve as an imposing statue in your other Minecraft-themed sets, or a secret weapon to use against unsuspecting enemies.

What we love

  • An exciting feature is a lever on her back that raises and lowers her arm with her sword
  • It has a sturdy base plate, so it can stand and look great for display

What We Don't Like That Much

  • We’d like to see a large helmet for Alex when she’s ready to do battle
Alex BigFig with Chicken 21149

19The Pig House 21170

Pigs are a common sight in the Minecraft universe and the Pig House gives you a fantastic place to keep them safe, or so they think! With 490 pieces, it has an upstairs and downstairs with Alex as the main character. The set also includes a creeper, two pigs, and Alex’s accessories as well as the ubiquitous carrots for the pigs. You can open the side and remove the roof to continue the play indoors. 

However, not all is as it seems. If the Creeper gets too close, or if you are ready to change the configuration, you can detonate a house-collapsing explosion. This bright pink pig house that is straight out of the online game makes a great Minecraft display and is a wonderful home base for your livestock.

What we love

  • It has a hidden library for hiding from the creeper
  • The entire headroom detaches and will fit other places on the model

What We Don't Like That Much

  • We would appreciate it if it were a little easier to put back together after breaking it apart with the explosion mechanism
The Pig House 21170

20Minifigure Accessory and Weapon Pack

Do you have all the Minecraft sets you want but not enough accessories to have all the adventures you need? 

Here you can buy an accessory set for Steve and Alex complete with 16 unique pieces. It includes a pickaxe, bow and arrow, gold sword, pickaxe, axe, shovel, carrot, compass, torch, and a TNT box. 

The items are disassembled and can be assembled easily and universal with all Minecraft LEGO sets making them a wonderful addition to help bring older sets to life again or to help create imaginative adventures.

What we love

  • Offers unrivaled utility for creative scenarios and defending from hostile monsters
  • These weapons and tools are straight out of the online game and are the details that make the real-world play so much fun

What We Don't Like That Much
