Lego Partners with Minecraft for Autumn Sets
Both of the companies have same theme “building”, and they decided to get into partnership to release products for a younger market.
The most renowned physical building games creators have partnered with MineCraft to create some MineCraft toys.
Reports by the Financial Times are saying that the new partnership will expand Lego and bring them a lot of profit. Lego has already released some small versions of figures that are MineCraft related, but the normal scale lines will be released in 2014.
What makes this partnership special is that Lego actually received feedback from the MineCraft player community and actually followed the player community’s advice. This might be owed to the fact that Mojang has always been careful when partnering up with other companies. The player community actually has helped Lego to get the perfect look for their models.The chief officer at Mojang Vu Bui, has said that they want the Lego MineCraft edition to be played exactly like the virtual game, more exactly to build and rebuild.
