So can you build whatever you want like Minecraft, or is it just a boring MMO with Lego slapped on it? This trailer tells me nothing.

Half and half. There's a lot of running around beating on randomly spawning mobs while on a quest, but then I doubt you could really avoid that in an MMO. There's lots of scope for free form lego building, but only in designated areas. So I guess the answer to your question is no, not like Minecraft at all.

That said, we've been in beta, and our kids are getting their pre-order copy any day now.

Finally... The WoW killer... Screw Cataclysm, I'm sold!

Seriously though... Neat trailer, but knowing NOTHING about the game (and haven't played any of the lego games), I still know nothing about the game... : )

It did it's job however, because now I'm going to click on that link up there and find out a bit.

So awesome to see this game make it. I was at NetDevil when this was just a prospect and it seemed like a long-shot at the time. Bravo guys. I wish you the best of luck and success with this game.

That is a really awesome trailer too. Anyone know who created it?
