EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Minecraft Dungeon is an assortment of 3.25-inch Minecraft characters themed around the upcoming dungeon crawling action game set in the Minecraft universe. Included in the line are Hex, Valorie, Adriene, and a Skeleton Vanguard. Featuring approximately five points of articulation, each comes packaged with weapon accessories and flame tips (which can be cleverly affixed to the weapons themselves). Skeleton Vanguard comes with a shield as well, though it should be noted that the waist wrap limits the leg movements drastically.

The Minecraft Comic Maker figures come with a mini-comic and work with a free app. Included in the line are Steve, Steve in Red Leather Armor, a Snow Golem, a Creeper, Enderman, and a Cow. Other characters are available. Figures stand at 3.25 inches and also feature five points of articulation and accessories. The app itself allows you to either finish the included comics or create entirely original stories with your characters (unlocking items to be used across your works with each scan, which we found expanded the set's collectability). It even allows for little touches like sound effects and music, which was very pleasant.


Is It Fun?

Yes; all figures are fun to play with (and display), and the comic creation app allows you to either finish the included comics or create entirely original stories with your characters (unlocking items to be used across your works with each scan, which we found expanded the set's collectability). It even allows for little touches like sound effects and music, which was very pleasant.

Who It’s For
Minecraft enthusiasts and budding comic writers ages 6+.
What To Be Aware Of

With the app, you may encounter some odd quirks, like having your photos squashed when saving them (as we did).
