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.
There are many great characters in Star Wars, yet despite not being able to communicate in anything more than beeps and whistles, R2-D2 is one of the saga’s finest. We’re celebrating the beloved droid getting a new, more sophisticated LEGO set with a pretty exciting exclusive. Don Bies and Lee Towersey have been responsible for bringing the character to the screen for the prequel and sequel films, and in this month’s cover feature they share all of the on-set stories you’d expect.
It’s not all Hollywood and movie-making of course, with plenty of behind-the-scenes magic taking place in Billund. We hear from the team behind the latest LEGO Ideas set, Winnie the Pooh, who reveal how they captured the adorable bear in the brick. Turning to more scientific pursuits, the designers behind 10283 NASA Space Shuttle share their secrets too.
The Reviews section covers all of those releases, plus the brand new Looney Tunes Collectible Minifigures, Harry Potter sets and the first-ever Technic Ferrari. There′s also some fantastic new build inspiration this month, with a guide to making minifigure computers and instructions for a modern King Kahuka throne.
Don′t ask how we managed to squeeze it all into 116 pages – just turn the page and enjoy.
