Venture into The Cave on a dangerous quest for vital resources! Wield the iron pickaxe to dig and battle against hostile zombie and spider mobs. Blast out valuable ores and minerals with the TNT and combine the flowing water and lava to create precious obsidian! When you’re done battling and mining, restore your energy levels with the chest of bread. Proceed with caution! Rebuild the set for more LEGO® Minecraft™ creations! Includes 2 minifigures with assorted accessories: Steve and a zombie, plus a spider.
For the second set in our LEGO Minecraft review series, we are looking at ‘The Cave [#21113]’.
You’ve been digging your way deeper underground, block by block, in the search for some much-needed resources, and all of a sudden there’s an opening in front of you. You’ve just reached the LEGO Minecraft Cave!
Things are pretty scary down here! Whilst you can see the precious ore’s that you’ve been looking for, there are cave spiders and zombies to contend with!
It may not be a particularly large set, but almost everything you’re familiar with from the in-game caves in Minecraft have been lovingly recreated here by the LEGO team.
There are lava flows, water, ore blocks and even a TNT block, and the set is spread out on varying levels to add to the adventure. Perched on the highest level (providing you can get past the Cave Spider and the Zombie) is a treasure chest with some much needed bread!
There are 249 pieces in The Cave set, and we clocked the build time around 30 minutes. Although fiddly, the ore blocks were particularly fun to build, and once complete look just like the in-game blocks. The cascading lava flow was also gratifying to complete and with the see-through orange blocks, it adds to the overall look – especially when the light catches them.
Finally worthy of note is the Cave Spider, which consists of 24 pieces and once combined (including the articulated legs) form a near exact replica of the in-game mob.
