Art Director Emmanuel Valdez reveals everything you need to know ahead of the launch of LEGO 2K Drive, the game that combines kart racing with open world exploration. With the LEGO silly inventiveness present in every pixel, it’s definitely something you’ll want to learn more about.

LEGO 2K Drive isn’t the only big new launch that you need to know the story behind though; the LEGO Group is about to launch the company’s biggest original theme yet, combining storytelling and creativity like never before. Illustrated with beautiful concept art, the experts behind this theme reveal the full story of how it came to be through more than three years of development and design work.
The spark of creativity is always alive in the fan community and that was very apparent during Bricktastic, the UK’s biggest LEGO show – see some of the amazing creations that were on display in our show report. For MOCs with a LEGO Castle focus, we’re exploring the community-driven Summer Joust contest that pushes builders to produce the best possible models inspired by the medieval period.
One theme almost as beloved as Castle is Pirates – and Blockstalgia focused on the Redcoats faction this month, taking a look at classic sets and offering instructions for a little outpost that the Imperials can use to watch out for Captain Redbeard and his crew.
The second part of our Breaking into Germany feature reveals how Godtfred Kirk Christiansen established the LEGO System products in the country, which sparked the worldwide expansion that has led to the Danish company becoming the global giant that it is today.
Elsewhere in the 116 page LEGO magazine, learn how academics are using LEGO bricks in research, find out how we score LEGO Indiana Jones sets, find out how to add texture to your MOCs, plus much more.
