Lego Minecraft – The Farm (21114) Review

21114_main

Lego Minecraft – The Farm (21114): Part 2 of my Minecraft Christmas gifts, this time moving out of the caves and onto the Farm. If I’m honest though I fail to see why this is a whole 10 dollars more expensive than the Cave, and it has some quirks I’m just not huge on.

What Else? So now that I have 3 sets it’s time to combine them into a single set. Inspired by the mindset of a first outpost we have a water-located hillside with farm on top and a home built out of the side.

Here you can see the interior with somewhat the typical wall of chests, and an open surprise lava pit that’s now used for light and obsidian farming.

Remix: So I knew I would have to contend with those 2 large green plates in a way that wasn’t ‘Minecrafty’. I therefore decided to make a movie-style set with a green-screen background that fades in, and even uses some elements within the scene.

Final Thoughts: I have to say I am fairly pleased with these, and I really want to get the Nether, and a set that has a creeper to help round out my baddies. My overall feeling though is that while this is a fine set, it feels very un-Minecraft like (aside from the 1by1 tower redesign section) just based on how plants and animals are kept in the game – ahh well.

Final Score: 2 out of 5 Stars
