LEGO Minecraft 21265 The Crafting Bench Rumoured For August 2024

In just a couple of days time six brand new LEGO Minecraft sets will become available but on the 1st of August, an even bigger set will launch for the theme. In particular, to celebrate 10 years since the first Minifigure scale LEGO Minecraft set released, we will be getting our first LEGO Minecraft D2C on the 1st of August 2024. The 18+ set of 21265 The Crafting Bench will retail for $89.99 with a total of 1,195 pieces.

As the name suggests, the 18+ model is a large brick-built version of the in-game block of the Crafting Bench which is used to make various objects, tools, etc. on it. Two sides of the Crafting Bench block are open allowing access to a colourful brick-built LEGO Minecraft microworld inside. The scale of the microworld is reportedly even smaller than the original LEGO Minecraft sets from 2013 and 2014.

From the detailed and accurate exterior to the wonderful microworld inside, the 18+ LEGO Minecraft set is covered with plenty of in-game references. The microworld includes five microscale modules based on existing biomes that can be detached and rearranged. The locations/biomes are the Taiga with a dripstone cave, Plains with a village, Ice Spikes with an igloo, Cherry Grove with an abandoned mineshaft and the Deep Dark with a lush cave.

The microworld isn't complete though without microfigures with eight of them being included in 21265. These are Steve, Alex, a Skeleton, a Witch, a Creeper, a villager, a cow and a pig. The 18+ model also includes some stickers featuring phrases from the 15-year-old game that can be added to the front of 21265 The Crafting Bench.
