The Micro World set centers around the Player (Steve) and one of the game's antagonists, a Creeper. The scene is depicted in The Overworld and depicts two biomes, including a mountain, caves, forest and grassland. The Village features structures in the village, and an abandoned mine shaft. It includes blocks for constructing houses, along with the Pig, Villager, and Zombie figures. The Nether is a stylised depiction of The Nether, and contains lava sea, a lava stream flowing down a hill, Nether Fortress, and a Nether Portal to connect to the Overworld. It also includes two Ghasts and a Zombie Pigman.
One Minecraft block is represented as a 1x1 plate with a tile on top. LEGO states that this is not a perfect cube, but it is "the best approximation at the chosen scale." The surface of the four modules comes off to reveal mines and water beneath. Builders can build their own landscapes, stack cubes on top of each other, and freely build on the world. Each module is 12x12, and the sets may come with several of these modules.

Mojang had started a project on the LEGO CUUSOO program, which requires 10,000 signatures for a project to be approved. With the strong support of the Minecraft community, the 10,000 signature objective was achieved in three days, and the development of the LEGO Minecraft set commenced after Lego reviewed the project. Mojang will donate 1% of the proceeds to charity.
The second set The Village and the third The Nether were announced at comi-con 2013.
