EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is
Protect your livestock and defend the fortress from the skeleton army just like in the video game Minecraft when you build the LEGO Minecraft The Fortress construction set. This 984-piece set, model number 21127, is modular and rebuildable into three alternative model configurations. It comes with a Steve minifigure, a horse for Steve to ride, a sheep, and three skeletons. The fortress itself has large pressure-plate doors, lookout towers, decorative Creeper banners, barred windows, water and farm areas, and a prison with door-opening function. Press the pressure plate to open the fortress doors and load up the flick-fire cannons. There are five swords and three skeleton bows, Steve's golden armor and helmet, an armor stand, armor and helmet for the skeletons, a crafting table, a weapons chest, and a hay bale. 
Is It Fun?
This is a fun way for Minecraft fans to get hands-on with their Minecraft adventures, building their own Minecraft world outside of the video game. They'll like seeing the pixilated look from the game represented in the figures and accessories in this set, and the ability to build the fortress in a variety of ways. The modular design also makes it easier for kids to remove and play in certain areas of the fortress. This is a nice way to bring the 2-D environments and characters from the game to life. 
Who It’s For
The LEGO Minecraft The Fortress construction set is for ages 8 and up. It's going to be fun for Minecraft fans who also like building with LEGO. This set gives them a hands-on way to expand the Minecraft play from the video game and build their own Minecraft world in the physical world. It will inspire imaginative play for young Minecraft fans and be a cool display piece for older Minecraft fans.
What To Be Aware Of
It took our Master Builder two and a half hours to build this construction set, but the instructions were easy to follow.
