Blocks magazine is a celebration of everything LEGO. Aimed at enthusiasts of all ages it is the perfect way to immerse in the world of plastic bricks. Each month it’s full of reviews, hints, how-to features, from LEGO experts.
In Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, we were teased by a Jeff Goldblum cameo that we hoped would be so much more. Audiences would have been delighted to see his Ian Malcolm character have a bigger role in Jurassic World: Dominion, but Colin Trevorrow has gone one better – Sam Neill and Laura Dern are also returning to the series, bringing the original core cast back together. Given that the trio hasn’t shared the screen since 1993’s original Jurassic Park, their new Minifigures had to be on the cover this month – but of course, they are being upstaged by the real stars of the movie; the dinosaurs. You can learn how the LEGO design team created the fantastic new prehistoric beasts that are included in this year’s movie sets from page 24. For decidedly less dramatic reasons, the Blocks magazine team gathers in Leicester to try out a new experience from the LEGO Group – Build Together. Find out how Phil Wrighton, Dave Cartlidge and I get on as we build the modular Bookshop set using the new group instructions. Despite there being three of us, we didn’t build anything nearly as impressive as the show-stopping Hogwarts Castle layout that Daniel Konstanki has been working on for months. He presents the completed model in this issue – the word ‘epic’ is nowhere near strong enough to describe it. Get ready to be inspired. Leg godt! Graham Hancock Editor
