If you're looking to learn all about the biggest and best in Minecraft LEGO sets, you've come to the right place.
Minecraft has for many years been one of the most popular video games, allowing users to build and battle in a world of blocks and mobs as they journey through worlds of their own creation and explore new and exciting experiences at every turn.
Minecraft has exploded in popularity and it now exists away from the screens of computers and iPads where it was born, and now can be found on t-shirts, bags, and at the heart of many cosplay experiences – with pixel swords and diamond armour on display at many fancy dress parties across the globe.
And as with any hugely popular entertainment franchise – from Star Wars and Marvel to Harry Potter and even Friends – Minecraft has teamed up with LEGO to create sets for builders of all ages to enjoy. And with its uniquely block-focused world, Minecraft not only works well in LEGO, it feels like it was practically made for LEGO.
But with a lot of Minecraft LEGO available, and only so many hours in the day, we've selected some of our favourite sets to help you choose the best to buy. Here are the best Minecraft LEGO kits to buy and build in 2023...

Best Minecraft LEGO sets
The Nether Bastion
Get ready to battle your way into the fiery Nether bastion. This set comes equipped with classic weapons such as gold axes, crossbows and a netherite sword, as well as lever-activated TNT, authentic accessories and familiar Minecraft characters.
Like many LEGO Minecraft sets, The Nether Bastion can be customised for extra hours of fun and playtime.
The Deep Dark Battle
Disaster has struck- a mining mission in the Deep Dark biome has turned into an explosive battle with the all-powerful Warden. Join forces with the Arbalest and Netherite knights to defeat him, with some exploration, excavation and explosions along the way.
The Rabbit Ranch
If fiery nether bastions and deepest darkest battles aren't quite your speed, then you can take a breath and check out The Rabbit Ranch. Here you'll find an oasis of calm and developmental play, with the chance to grow carrots and use a lever to make your bunny hop.
There's also a lift-off roof to provide easy interior access, not to mention an explosion function to collapse the cave.
LEGO Minecraft: The Pig House
It doesn't matter where you go in Minecraft, there's never a pig very far away. So why not celebrate the porcine prevalence in the video game by building this impressive giant pig house – complete with two little piggies, an Alex character and a Creeper who is more than likely to cause trouble.
Like much of the Minecraft LEGO, this set is quite interactive and is more than just a build-and-leave experience – it's designed to be played with. The whole of the side of the house opens, which is certainly worth the price of admission.
LEGO Minecraft: The Ruined Portal
Don't let the word 'ruined' fool you; this is a great Minecraft LEGO set to pick up as there's a lot to see with the ruined portal. Journey into the fiery Nether with this set that includes hand controls to activate and deactivate the perilous, inter-dimensional gateway - a place that sounds super fun.
LEGO Minecraft: The Mushroom House
With 272 pieces and a ton of features included, the mushroom house LEGO set is one that any fan of Minecraft will love. Roofs can be removed to get access to the fun interiors, and if you find that you are missing a skeleton spider jockey then fear not, you get one with this set!
LEGO Minecraft: The 'Abandoned' Mine
Steve is trying to unearth coal, iron and diamond in the world of Minecraft, but he won't be able to do that unless you build him an abandoned mine made out of LEGO first!
Some threats that await him are a scary zombie, creepy spider and living slime, and they are all present and accounted for in this 248-piece LEGO set.
LEGO Minecraft: The Creeper Ambush
One of the smallest sets on this list at only 72 pieces, this is perfect for someone who is looking to start out in LEGO and doesn't want to be overwhelmed with a massive build - never wise to go for a huge one the first time. But with some characters and items that are instantly recognisable from Minecraft, the creeper ambush remains a gift that fans of the franchise will love.
