We’re back with Issue 92 of Blocks, the LEGO magazine for fans, with 116 pages of exclusive interviews, the latest LEGO news and in-depth reviews. This month we brave the dinosaurs of Jurassic World: Dominion in two roar-some behind-the-scenes features as well as reviews for the new wave of sets – but there’s more to explore in this edition of the LEGO magazine.
In this month’s issue of Blocks, the LEGO magazine for fans, we talk with the LEGO designers who have to double as palaeontologists to bring dinosaurs to the brick. With Jurassic World: Dominion offering yet more new Raptors and Pterodactyls on the big screen, the tie-in wave is filled with new moulds alongside familiar prehistoric beasts. If you want to know how a baby Velociraptor is made then this is the article for you. That’s not all, as after careful consideration, you’ll definitely decide to endorse our behind-the-scenes look at Jurassic Park 76956 T. Rex Breakout.
LEGO Build Together
While building a LEGO set can often be a singular effort, a new part of the LEGO Instructions app is encouraging a team effort. Dominik Brachmanski is the brains behind this new concept and explains how he got the idea, as well as the support that came from the LEGO community. The Blocks team have tested it out and explore the benefits of the Build Together experience, as well as any drawbacks to thi new way of building.
To infinity and beyond!
Disney Pixar’s Lightyear is approaching cinemas at hyperspeed and Blocks has the perfect reviews to get you excited for everyone’s favourite Space Ranger! Both 76832 XL-15 Spaceship and 76831 Zurg Battle are teasing elements from the film, but how do they stand up as LEGO sets? What is Buzz’s new minifigure like? Does his spaceship have plenty of swoosh-ability? Find all the answers and more in Issue 92.
Hogwarts Castle is certainly the most popular setting for LEGO Wizarding World sets, but our resident build expert, Daniel Konstanski, dreamed of something bigger. A lot bigger. Making 71043 Hogwarts Castle look tiny in comparison, his not quite minifigure-scale behemoth proved incredibly challenging but was thoroughly worth the effort. Learn about the magic that needed to go into this build and its debut at Philly Brick Fest.
Getting ready for battle
Do your minifigures need to prepare for battle? Are they Templar knights or Roman centurions? Learn how to make realistic weaponry for your minifigures, perfect for Castle and history fans alike. It’s a masterclass in turning LEGO axes, spears, and swords into so much more, all with only a few pieces.
Avast! Here there be pirates
As the sun sets on the horizon and Pirates prepared for a farewell shanty, the theme that had inspired a generation sank to the depths. Pirates: Armada tried to take inspiration from the Spanish armada, yet seemed to also borrow the colours of the Mexican flag. It wasn’t all bad though as the minifigures took on new designs and unique armour elements. In homage to this swan-song (or maybe that should be shark-song), you can build a more impressive version of 6244 Armada Sentry using our exclusive instructions.
