Lego recently announced its biggest Minecraft set! (We know, we know. Your little coders and builders are jumping up and down in excitement as you wince a little, remembering that hard piece of block you just stepped on this morning.)

The Village, which comes out in June, is a pretty big (literally) deal. The set contains 1,600 pieces, and once configured, measures 5 inches tall, 17 inches wide and 19 inches deep. It includes rainforest, snow and desert biomes as well as familiar structures like a fold-out library, a butcher and marketplace that allow kids to build interior scenes. Even the accessories are detailed; builders will find parts like a water bucket, emerald ore elements and a crafting table. Your neighborhood folks consist of Steve, Alex, zombie, zombie villager, a Creeper, an enderman, pig, baby pig, iron golem, a farmer and librarian—all as mini-figures. (It's OK if that list of characters all sounded like gibberish. Point is, your kids will freak out.)

Oh, and the set costs a whopping $199.

According to Kotaku, Minecraft is currently Lego's best-selling licensed property, and The Village will help complete the Lego Minecraft world (which currently includes The Nether Fortress, The End Portal, The Cave, The Desert Outpost and more).

So, moms, if you've got the stones to buy this set, it's time to secretly donate or throw out all those old toys to make room.
