In this LEGO Minecraft: The End Portal Review, we take a look at the next LEGO Minecraft set in the Minecraft theme.
The End Portal is a mid-priced Minecraft Set released in 2016 and contains 559 pieces which works out at around 10.7c per piece if you buy this at the recommended retail price.
It’s a very detailed build and a must it you already own The Ender Dragon because how else will your Minecraft hero reach the end?
So let’s take a look at what’s inside the LEGO Minecraft – The End Portal set.
LEGO Minecraft: The End Portal Review – Set 21124
As you see on the front cover the set is a fully detailed scene for the Minecraft End Portal. And LEGO have done a great job recreating this important element of the Minecraft Game.
It comes complete with Ender Eyes which are required to activate The End Portal and a library where Steve can do his research for potions and how to defeat the Ender Dragon.
The design of the books are very clever and mimic those in game. Well done to those on the LEGO Minecraft Design team. It’s the simple things and attention to detail that makes this theme work.
Again the gameplay was surely a consideration during the design of this LEGO Minecraft set.
And although the set looks to command a small footprint, all elements of the set are hinged which means you can swing them open to create a more expansive gameplay area as seen below.
Here’s a look at the standard build of the LEGO Minecraft: The End Portal Set.

And as you can see there is a new Cave Spider and plenty of Endermen to play with.
So let’s take a look at the LEGO Mini Figures included in this set.
Minecraft Mini-Figures and Accessories
There are four, regular mini figures in this set, a Steve, a Cave Spider and two Endermen.
The Minecraft Endermen have a one piece body, and two black LEGO tiles for arms. And their black block head with purple eyes makes them very similar to the game. You’ll get 2 Endermen in this set and each is carrying a Stone Block. So now we know where the Endermen take their blocks.
The Cave Spider is a little different to the normal LEGO Minecraft Spider as it has a blue head and torso. The mechanism for the legs are the same as the standard spider found in other sets.
For the minifig accessories, we get a diamond sword and armour, an iron pickaxe, torches, iron ingots, redstone, and plenty of books for the library. Plus you get enough Ender Eyes to activate the End Portal.
Stop Motion Video Example
Now it wouldn’t be a proper LEGO Minecraft: The End Portal review at BrickFlicks TV without showing you a stop motion that uses the LEGO Minecraft – The End Portal.
Anyway sit back and enjoy the show…
I’ve really enjoyed this LEGO Minecraft: The End Portal Review and the set has a heap of detail. It has neat playability features and includes a Steve in diamond armor, who is ready to attack anyone who blocks his path to The End Portal.
But just don’t look into those Endermen Eyes, or there could be trouble. Or perhaps you need more Ender Eyes to activate the portal, so then it’s GAME ON!
Awesome job again LEGO!
