New Lego Minecraft: Sneak preview of new Christmas toys

Photos of the new Lego Minecraft sets have been accidentally leaked online.

The official release of Lego Minecraft is planned for November, but, Mir Kubikov, a chain of franchise Lego stores in Russia has prematurely placed the new Minecraft sets in their online store.

The gaffe was picked up by Lego bloggers, Lego.Gizmodo, who have kindly dragged the photos onto their website to give us all a sight of what's going to be under the tree on Christmas morning.

There are six new sets: Cave, Dragon Edge, Farm, First Night, and Workbench. And unlike last year's sets, these are distinctively more 'Lego' in feeling.

Blogger Michael Schulte wrote: "Though the images are not high resolution, all the pertinent set information is there including some great images of the new Minecraft minifigures."

Lego and Minecraft came together last year in a match made in heaven because they're both essentially building toys.

In the real world, Lego is the world's most popular toy, with more than £2 billion worth being sold each year.
