Fans hope for custom edition of iconic building block set

The man behind Minecraft believes a partnership between his game and Lego would be a "perfect match" for a range of toys.

Speaking to ToyNews, Minecraft creator Markus Persson said: "Having grown up with Lego and it probably having subconsciously affected the design of Minecraft - I'd say it's a perfect match."

Both fans of toys and video games have been gripped by the prospect of a Lego set based on the increasingly valuable Minecraft brand.

Although Persson is "not involved in the discussions" himself, he remains hopeful.

“One thing I personally think would be ridiculously awesome in the long-term would be to get Minecraft character shaped Minifigures,” he said.
