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.
If you love finding out how LEGO sets are designed, then this issue of Blocks magazine has you covered. I don’t think we’ve ever heard from this many professional LEGO creatives in a single issue before, so get ready to go deep into how the magic happens. It’s almost an Ideas special, as the designers behind the recent run of sets give us the inside scoop – you can learn how the team made The Office’s dull location interesting to build and how Motorised Lighthouse upped the scale from the fan design. Most fascinating of all though is the journey that Table Football went on – that interview really does reveal what happens when the design process is particularly challenging. As the front cover gives away, though, there’s an even larger set that we have the story behind. Design Master Marco Bessa explains how they took the iconic Hogwarts Express to a new scale that would be worthy of fans’ collections. As a huge Potterhead himself, his enthusiasm for the project shines through. Once you’ve heard from the experts though, it’s always fun to tackle a build project yourself and we have a great one this month – a lunar landscape for the Galaxy Explorer. Whether you have the set already or have it at the top of your list for Santa, this is the perfect way to display the modern Classic Space model. Leg godt!
