The LEGO 21118 'The Mine' set is the largest set in the new minifigure-scaled Minecraft line. The name of the set refers to the title of the game itself, therefore we might expect to experience some really big and exciting adventure. Let us see what Lego prepared for us!
Rather than pick another of the community supplied robots that come with the EV3 software, I wanted to build a Rubik's Cube solving robot. It just so happens there is a fantastic project already available that creates one from just the 31313 EV3 parts - the MindCub3r created by David Gilday. Awesome :)
The Ender Dragon is a scene from some game called Minecraft. I guess if you're reading this you most likely already know that and probably know way more about the game than me. But essentially it is a game about using different types of bricks to create stuff. Remind you of something?
As you might have heard, TLG will soon unleash six new Minecraft sets in minifig-scale, which are a followup to the micro world Minecraft sets released two years ago. We will take a closer look at several of these new sets in the upcoming days (weeks?). First up today is the 21116 set titled 'Crafting Box'. This set clocks in at 518 parts and comes with three minifigures: our hero Minecraft Steve, an emaciated looking skeleton, and a weird 'cow' named Nathan (or so I was told). It is a pure coincidence that the webmaster of this site is named Nathan as well. The set features mainly square bricks but also some new molds, as we will show shortly. Time to do some crafting!
October had quite a few fixes as usual, plus one major new feature in the Buy Sets page. We also saw a record number of users on the site with 100K+ unique users and 1M+ page views which is nearly twice the number from October last year.
