LEGO's Minecraft set 21102 was one of the most popular and hardest to find holiday gifts in 2013. This year LEGO released two more sets and they're already selling out at most retailers. However, most shoppers haven't thought to check LEGO's online store and all three sets, including 21105 Micro World: The Village and 21106 Micro World: The Nether, have been in stock for quite some time. There is a two set limit per customer and each set retails for $40.

Both will begin shipping on December 4th.
The Moto G is equipped with a 4.5-inch 1,280 x 720 display, a 5MP rear camera, a 1.3 front-facing camera, a .2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM and a 2,070mAh battery.
