One Minecraft block is represented as a 2×2 brick with a tile on top. LEGO states that this is not a perfect cube, but it is "the best approximation at the chosen scale." There are two types of sets - the "Micro World" sets and the normal LEGO scale sets. The "Micro World" sets contain modules which are 12×12, and may come with several of these modules. Since then the "Micro World" Sets have been discontinued.
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 a few biomes, including a mountain, caves, forest and plains. The Village features structures in the village, and an mineshaft. 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 a 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. The End is a stylised depiction of the End, and contains the Ender Dragon, six obsidian pillars with ender crystals on top of them, an exit end portal and endermen.
The "Micro World" sets can be purchased through the websites Jinx and Lego.com.
The normal LEGO Minecraft sets feature different parts of Minecraft. All the sets include Steve, Alex or a player skin and at least one mob. The Cave features a cave in Minecraft with different ores and mobs. The Farm features a normal farm in with one cow and one sheep and a skeleton. It includes a crop farm too. The First Night features a basic house in Minecraft and a farm with a pig and a Creeper.

Mojang Studios 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 Studios donates 1% of the proceeds to charity. The first set was subsequently released June 1, 2012.
The second set The Village and the third The Nether were announced at Comic-Con 2013. The fourth set "The End" was announced through a teaser on 8 March followed by a reveal on 14 March on the LEGO Minecraft Facebook page.
On the 2nd November 2013, during MINECON, it was announced that The Lego Group would be creating a fully fledged mini-figure scale theme. It is the first time for Lego to work with fans to create the new series of sets, they call this the co-build project.
Six more sets were released on 15 November, 2014. These were the first sets that did not follow the "Micro World" design of the previous sets. Another four sets were unveiled at the 2015 London Toy Fair. These sets were released on 15 August, 2015. Subsequent sets were released up until and through 2020.
- The first set was released on Markus Persson's birthday.
- The first page of the building instructions features a paragraph of text explaining what Minecraft is. This paragraph is a verbatim copy of the "About Minecraft" section on the wiki's Main Page.
- Also, in the illustration in the first page Herobrine is present.
- The Minecraft set introduced new kind of figure, called micromob which only available on first four sets and exclusive to their own set, later set have normal minifigure like other LEGO set.
- The Box for the first four set is styled after a different Building Block: "Micro World" resembles a Grass Block, "The Village" resembles Oak Planks, "The Nether" resembles lava and "The End" resembles Obsidian.
- Popular on-line Minecraft streamer "CaptainSparklez" voiced two of the commercials advertising LEGO Minecraft.
- Minecraft was planned to be a part of Year Three of Lego Dimensions, but was cancelled as development of new expansion packs for Lego Dimensions ceased in October 2017.
