Lego Minecraft – The Dungeon (21119): So I know I just did a bunch of Minecraft reviews due to Christmas gifts, but I swear the random order from Pley decided to give me this (and make me want to again add it to my existing combo) This time we have something more underground – particularly a monster spawner.

So we have the Monster Spawner here, and this set has a rare two mobs of zombies included – so let’s imagine if we had one in the real world – how long would it be before the world was covered in zombies?
Well Earth’s total land mass is 148,939,063.133 km2 and Minecraft’s spawners create 4 mobs every 10-39.95 seconds. Let’s be as forgiving and say that all mobs are zombies and it spawns always 10 seconds.
Officially Minecraft’s scale is 1 meter per block. Now Zombies are the same size as Steve, but considering the sizing let’s say you can fit 2 zombies in 1 block if they were packed. With that size it’s easy to determine we would need 148,939,063,133 zombies. Multiply that by the spawn rate of 4 every 10 seconds and we get a total of 372,347,657,833 seconds.
This means that it would take a total of 11807.0667755264 years to fully fill the world’s landmass with zombies. So I think until the year 13823 rolls around we will be fine. (Though tbh we might start worrying before then)
Remix: So for this remix I thought about making one of those island/sandy beach type billboards. It worked out sort of how I like with the treasure chest, sun, and tree, but I did need to use a bunch of pieces as counterweight.
Final Thoughts: Of the Minecraft sets, this provides a nice amount of pieces, and 2 zombies – but it really lacks enough uniqueness of overall look to be a good set to buy compared to other Minecraft sets. If you find it cheap it’s a great addition, but I think it should have tried to be more cavelike and not have so much sand/ground.
Final Score: 2 out of 5 Stars
