Gather, weary travelers, and rest your heads in the Kingdom of Galekin, a fantasy world created whole-cloth by Minecraft enthusiast Linard. It contains multiple cities, locations and natural formations, and unlike some other fantasy locations created in Minecraft, this one comes entirely from Linard’s own imagination. That is pretty impressive, especially when you consider he didn’t have photo reference or artwork to draw from in creating his world. Take video tour of Galekin below. [click to continue…]


From The Shire to Westeros, gamers have recreated a wide range of famous fictional realms in Minecraft (seriously, if you haven’t seen the Minecraft-version of Westeros, do it now). That having been said, AlanBeckerMinecraft recreated the world from My Neighbor Totoro in Minecraft, and his attention to detail is astounding. Experience it in the “cinematic trailer” featured below. [click to continue…]


LEGO has announced that their largest ever Minecraft set – the Village – is set to drop in June.

This 1,600-piece set includes buildings such as the watchtower, butcher, library, blacksmith and the marketplace and will retail for $199.99, which is money you could be putting towards that late phone bill. Or a car payment! Remember that? Priorities, man.

Ehhh…go with the Lego.

The set also includes new Minifigs of Steve, Alex, some villagers, a pig and it’s offspring, a zombie, a zombie villager, a Creeper, an Enderman, and an iron golem. Check out photos of the set below.

Redditor and father hahabird posted photos of the awesome life-size glowing Minecraft block he made for his son’s birthday. Since the blocks in the game are about one meter, he decided to build one side of a cube true to scale. Then he added color-changing LEDs which can be remote controlled. The entire project took about a week in his spare time and only cost $85 in parts and paints.

His son’s reaction was absolutely perfect:

“At 7 this morning: “DADA! This is super cool! Come see! It can change colors! Look: redstone! Diamond! Lapus lazuli!” A few minutes of sitting in front of it staring, interspersed with the occasional “Wow! Sooooo cool.”

Then he asked where I got it (he should really know better by now). “I made it.” “How?” So we looked through the album as I explained each step.

Now we’re eating cupcakes for breakfast, because birthday.”

Well done Minecraft Dad. Click below to see the entire DIY project gallery…

minecraft castle in the sky

Mocchi Hajikura has recreated Castle in the Sky one block at a time in Minecraft. It’s mind-bogglingly massive. No wonder it took four years to complete.

You can see the first and second videos in what will eventually be a five-part series after the break. Each week he plans to release another video in the series so he can show off every bit of his creation. Four years is a heck of a commitment and it looks like he didn’t miss a thing.

lego minecraft

Minecraft fans are going to want to build outside the game when they get a look at this incredible castle. It’s two feet tall and three feet wide and is constructed of over 20,000 bricks. The whole thing was built by ZaziNombies who managed to keep the very square look of the game while adding in lots of details. There are also several versions of minifig Steve and a fully accessorized interior.

And then there’s the cat.

See the video after the break.

lego minecraft 1

Minecraft is all about building locations and characters with blocks so it’s basically a match made in heaven for LEGO. We got a first look at the sets back in August, and now they’re available to order. You can choose between the Mine, the Cave, the Farm, and more. If you want ’em, I recommend purchasing them as soon as you can. Plus, there’s a limit of five sets per order.

See pics of more sets after the break.
