In this LEGO Minecraft: The Dungeon Review, we take a look at the next LEGO Minecraft set in the Minecraft theme.
The Dungeon is a low priced Minecraft Set released in 2015 and contains 219 pieces which works out at around 9.1c per piece if you buy this at the recommended retail price.
Although it can often be found for a discounted rate, which makes the cost per piece even lower, so make sure you shop around.
Anyway, let’s take a look at what’s inside the LEGO Minecraft – The Dungeon set.
LEGO Minecraft: The Dungeon Review – Set 21119
There is quite a lot happening with the front cover of the box, and for a low budget LEGO Minecraft set it has quite a few playability functions as seen in the picture.
However, I’m not so sure about finding a cactus plant in a dungeon, let alone stranded in some lava, so they could have detailed this a little better.
The subtle hint is the dungeon is under some sandstone blocks so the cactus should actually appear a top of the dungeon, but hey it would make the box too high so I see what they’ve done there. Used their artistic license again.
You see down in the LEGO Minecraft Dungeon you might find a Zombie Spawner, which makes Zombies regularly appear.
This LEGO Zombie Spawner has a little tech, and if you rotate the silver knob the little zombie inside the cage begins to spin rapidly. Then by using the flipping secret door at the back of the scene you’ll reveal a new Zombie.
Kinda neat hey?
Given its low cost, LEGO has managed to cram a lot into this dungeon set, including multiple mini-figures.
So let’s take a look at the LEGO Mini Figures included in this set.
Minecraft Mini Figures and Accessories
There are three, regular mini figures in this set, a Steve, and two Zombie’s.
The Minecraft Steve has a blue top and purple pants and a square head as you’d expect from a LEGO Minecraft Minifig. And although the body is that of a standard LEGO minifig, the head certainly gives you a feel you’re playing with Minecraft.
And don’t worry about not having enough Steve’s to play with as you get either a Steve or Alex in every LEGO Minecraft set.
The Minecraft Zombie again has purple pants and a blue top but this time there’s a green blocky ‘V’ near the neck which matches the green hands and the face of the zombie. Again the head is a block and looks very similar to the one in-game
For the minifig accessories, we get an iron pickaxe, torches, chest, wheat, redstone and a number of resource blocks including gold and moss stone.
The accessories are a bit light on, but 3 mini-figures in such a cheap set is a big plus.
Stop Motion Video Example
Now it wouldn’t be a proper LEGO Minecraft – The Dungeon review at BrickFlicks TV without showing you a stop motion that uses the LEGO Minecraft – The Dungeon set. Albeit a stop motion build video.
So sit back and enjoy the show…
I’ve enjoyed this LEGO Minecraft: The Dungeon Review and the build is fairly straight forward, although there are quite a few very small pieces to put together which may be difficult for small children.
And considering everything that’s stuffed into this box, it works out to be exceptional value. Plus it’s always nice to have a few extra LEGO Minecraft Zombie’s on hand.
Anyway great Job again LEGO!
