LEGO Minecraft 21187 The Red Barn Review: The Farm You Need

LEGO Minecraft 21187 The Red Barn Review: The Farm You Need

The new LEGO Minecraft 21187 The Red Barn features a concept rarely seen in bricks, just in time for a new farming sub-theme, but at a cost.

A classic staple of farms in the media is the simple red barn, but such a structure has never before been depicted in System LEGO sets, at least not until this Minecraft 2022 summer set. While DUPLO has released more than A few red barns over the years, minifigure-scale farms don’t officially have one, and even this summer’s CITY farm sets fail to pull off that classic red-walled color scheme.

21187 The Red Barn accomplishes something no other LEGO Minecraft set has yet, featuring a build that can fit into farms beyond theme with few minor modifications, though this lovely model comes with a hefty price tag.

Using nearly 800 items, the majority of 21187 The Red Barn’s piece count goes into the barn itself, and to great effect. You just can’t go wrong with the classic white and red color scheme the model uses, with fences and walls filling in the necessary spaces without feeling out of place. Unlike other LEGO Minecraft games, there isn’t a particularly bad angle from which to look at this build, though you’ll want to see it with the patches of grass in front of you.

The curved but block-based roof of 21187 The Red Barn has a surprisingly solid structure and immediately catches your eye, as curves are not a typical inclusion in LEGO Minecraft. The natural shape of the roof, within the design constraints of Minecraft, still allows it to sit alongside other LEGO farming models without feeling too out of place (and a few simple slopes will give it even more life).
