Just a heads-up for those of you buying gifts for Minecraft fans for the upcoming holidays.

My father emailed me the other day that the Minecraft Overworld: Series 1 were being released in Canada. They may already be in other regions, but it is a first for us.

My son is a huge Minecraft fan and plays over Xbox Live all the time with his Grandpa. It is such a great game for them to play together since they don't get to see each other very often.

So, they *just* came out here and my father bought them from Toys-R-Us. He sent me the above picture to show me what they looked like. My son has no idea they are out and will freak when he gets them for his birthday in December.

I imagine they'll be a pretty hot commodity for the holidays, so grab 'em while you can. I almost want a set of them for myself.

Oh, and FYI, they are also on Amazon.com but not on Amazon.ca at the moment. Not that I'm surprised...Canada's Amazon is the worst Amazon.
