In this LEGO Minecraft: The Snow Hideout Review, we take a look at the next LEGO Minecraft set in the Minecraft theme.
The Snow Hideout is a mid-priced Minecraft Set released in 2015 and contains 327 pieces which works out at around 12.2c per piece if you buy this at the recommended retail price.
It’s not the most cost effective Minecraft set ever released by LEGO but once you take a closer look inside, you’ll start to understand why the higher cost per piece.
Anyway, let’s take a look at what’s inside the LEGO Minecraft – The Snow Hideout set.
LEGO Minecraft: The Snow Hideout Review – Set 21120
There’s quite a lot happening with the front cover of the box, and yes the set looks that good once built. Minus the background scene of course.
As you see there are plenty of transparent LEGO bricks in this set which always bumps up the price a little.
And the LEGO Minecraft Tree included in the set has many more pieces than the usual tree you’ll find in the LEGO Minecraft range. It does look kinda cool though with the snow covered tops.
Yes, The LEGO Minecraft Snow Golem set has some neat playability features.
Firstly the top comes off without having to destroy the whole snow hideout.
Then, the back swings open to reveal a very detailed inside. Here Steve can keep warm near the fire or continue crafting within the safety of his home.
And although Steve has a Snow Golem to protect him from the Creeper outside, it’s always safer behind a closed door.
Oh, and there’s an exploding platform outside that you can use if the creeper decided to blow himself up.
Here’s a look at the outside and inside of the LEGO Minecraft: The Snow Hideout Set.

But it’s the brand new LEGO Minecraft mini-figure in this set, which makes it unique.
So let’s take a look at the LEGO Mini Figures included in this set.
Minecraft Mini-Figures and Accessories
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 Creeper uses one piece for the body, so the legs are fixed in place. It has a Creeper styled block head and some green tiles are used for arms. It’s definitely one of the most custom LEGO Minecraft MOBS you’ll find in the theme, so you must expect to pay a little extra.
The Snow Golem has a white printed body, two snowball cannons for arms and a traditional pumpkin head up top.
For the minifig accessories, we get a wooden shovel and pickaxe, torches, a crafting table and a water bucket. There are also a few coal resource blocks included in this set.
The accessories are a bit light on, but the 3 mini-figures are spot on.
Stop Motion Video Example
Now it wouldn’t be a proper LEGO Minecraft – The Snow Hideout review at BrickFlicks TV without showing you a stop motion that uses the LEGO Minecraft – The Snow Hideout set. And this is one of my funniest LEGO Minecraft Videos. IMHO. And check out here for more funny Minecraft Videos.
Anyway sit back and enjoy the show…
I’ve enjoyed this LEGO Minecraft: The Snow Hideout Review and the build looks great once it’s together. However, if you’re building a Minecraft World then perhaps the snow biome is going to look a little empty with just this one set.
Perhaps LEGO will release more Snow Biome sets in the future and perhaps a Minecraft Polar bear. Here’s hoping.
And although the price per piece isn’t the best I’ve seen in this Mincraft Series, it does contain a few of the rarer mini-figs and plenty of transparent bricks, so it’s still good value for money.
So great job again LEGO!
