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.
It’s becoming cliché to say how surprising a new LEGO release is. This year we’ve already had adidas Superstar, World Map, Everyone is Awesome – and now the Queer Eye Loft is here, bringing entirely new subject matter to the brick.
It’s a labour of love from LEGO Design VP Matthew Ashton, who gives us the inside story on the set’s creation and a peek at some development art, before we hear Bobby Berk’s thoughts on the collaboration.
Something less surprising but never dull is also out now, and that’s the new Winter Village set. Chris McVeigh reveals what he put into 10275 Santa’s Visit.
The always interesting Rok Žgalin Kobe is back too, providing a tour of 10284 Camp Nou.
This month’s Technique section is full of tips for building minifigure scale speakers, which only need a handful of bricks to try. Our new Home Studio feature shows how you can photograph a skiing minifigure – with no digital manipulation.
As the world is tentatively starting to open up again, Blockstalgia goes plane spotting with the Town subtheme Flight, reminiscing about some of those fantastic baseplate runways and showing how to give 6536 Aero Hawk a modern update that’s a little more pragmatic.
