LEGO Minecraft is a hugely popular theme, with multiple sets releasing every year, it’s the smaller polybags and sets that first grabbed my five year old Son’s attention and ultimately started him on his crazed fascination with every Minecraft, including the game!
When I first saw news and images, many months ago, of this new for 2021 LEGO polybag I instantly knew he would love it – I must add that I’m partial to a bit of Minecraft at times too.
I managed to snag the LEGO Minecraft The Nether Duel 30331 polybag for a fair price on eBay, it actually worked out cheaper as postage was free.
The set itself only contains 28 pieces and made up of mostly proper bricks, which is really nice to see, as usually we get given a ton of 1×1 bits.
Focusing on The Nether, a dangerous hell-like dimension filled with fire, lava, and angry mobs, we get a very interesting colour pallet including Dark Turquoise, Dark Red, Olive Green and Medium Lavender. When it comes to LEGO my all-time favourite colous are Sand Green and Sand Blue, but I also love the softer shades of Olive Green and alike, to get them in a small polybag set is amazing!
Its construction is very simple and straightforward with no real tricky bits, although lining up the 1×1 studs can be fiddly its not essential to get perfect,thats just my Afol OCD kicking in.
The two larger plates are held together by a series of stacked Dark Red bricks which represent Netherrack blocks and Yellow bricks as the Lava.
Again there isn’t a lot to this set and that limited what can be reviewed, it’s a basic addition to the LEGO Minecraft line which can be positioned next to or combined with to expand the play area and imagination of whoever is building or playing!
There are two Minifigures included, Steve, who practically comes in almost every set, and a much needed Wither Skeleton.
It’s so good to finally add a Wither Skeleton to my Son’s collection as this is his first. Including this polybag the Wither Skeleton has only ever appeared in three other sets, the most recent one being from 2019.
He comes with an iron sword and not much else, he truly is barebones. Comprising of a black skeleton torso, arms, extended legs, and cube head there is little else going on, perhaps that’s why he is so scary looking!
Steve on the other hand has enchanted trousers and Bow, being medium lavender colour gives it away.
He is his generic self and not much more to say, he comes with his now signature light blue torso and printed cube head. As many Steves as we have, and that’s a lot now, we can’t help but miss him if he’s not in a set, he’s the original Minecraft character and everyone has heard of him!
Overall the LEGO Minecraft The Nether Duel 30331 Polybag is decent enough to grab and add to the ever growing LEGO Minecraft collection.
The small set is good and comes with enough parts in a selection of cool colours, great for expanding your current sets or for MOCs.
Both Minifigures are great although I don’t think another Steve will help in ther grand scheme of things. the Wither Skeleton is the real gem here and looks scarely good!
