Compared to the rest of LEGO CON2022, the two Minecraft summer templates may have been overlooked, despite featuring new content for the theme.
With reveals like 10305 Lion Knights’ Castle, 75337 AT-TE Walker and 76218 Sanctum Sanctorum, it’s safe to say that LEGO CON 2022 has been filled with announcements. We’ve summarized the entire show here, but you’d be forgiven for forgetting the two new Minecraft sets featured at the event – 21189 The Skeleton Dungeon and 21190 The Abandoned Village.
Now that LEGO CON 2022 has passed, we can take a closer look at these builds and see what new content they will bring to LEGO Minecraft.
5 – A black cat
Cats aren’t new to LEGO Minecraft, but 21190 The Abandoned Village will be the first time an all-black feline has been featured in LEGO Minecraft. The next closest cat would be the first LEGO Minecraft cat in 2017’s 21134 The Waterfall Base, although it has white on its paws, tip of its tail and mouth.
4 – A musical disc
Inside the chest found in 21189 Skeleton Dungeon, a music disc can be found. It features two shades of green in the center. Based on the discs that can be found in dungeons, this most likely seems to be Cat. This is the first music disc to appear in LEGO Minecraft, with 14 more to come to complete the collection.
5 – New figurines
The Zombie Hunter and the Cave Explorer are two new minifigures in the summer 2022 LEGO Minecraft sets, each with new designs that best suit their respective set. The Zombie Hunter is featured in 21190 The Abandoned Village and the Cave Explorer is featured in 21189 The Skeleton Dungeon.
2 – Stalactites and Stalagmites
Composed of sharp dripstone, stalactites and stalagmites are relatively new formations in Minecraft and make their LEGO debut in 21189 The Skeleton Dungeon. The natural lush cave formations depicted on the left have been partially depicted before in 21183 The Training Grounds, though the Dripeaf are also new to this set.
1 – A small skeleton
Much like 21119 The Dungeon, 21189 The Skeleton Dungeon’s spawner features a miniature representation of the creature it spawns as a small skeleton with a detailed face visible in the center block. The circular brick located next to the spawner will also be able to rotate the skeleton inside the cage.
