LEGO Minecraft 21186 The Ice Castle review and gallery

LEGO Minecraft 21186 The Ice Castle arrives to anything but a frosty reception, thanks to an interesting build that offers great value within the video game theme.

The Ice Spikes biome in Minecraft presents an interesting challenge to players, with tall spires of ice sticking out of mountains and hills and reaching toward the sky. For some, this may serve as inspiration for a new build and it appears that the LEGO Minecraft design team has some experience in transforming this unique biome into a home.

21187 The Ice Castle stands as an example of what can be achieved with LEGO bricks, and within Minecraft, paying close attention to the design guidelines of the game. However, it’s not the most remarkable build in any sense.

The box art of 21186 The Ice Castle makes it clear that the set is based in the Ice Spikes biome, and elements of these natural frozen structures can still be seen in the foundation, adding a good amount of colour to the model as the bright blue of the ice mixes with the brown of the wooden fences and the white snow well.

A mixed but uniform combination of colours on the exterior of the ice castle helps it to stand out, even in a wave filled with bright red barns and giant llamas. Keeping to the outside of the castle, stone walls are used as parapets and we appreciate the inclusion of tiles next to the dispensers to show that the walls are connected to them, but not to the stairs, on both towers – just like in the game.
