It’s time for the latest edition of Blocks, the LEGO magazine for fans. Issue 82 contains 116 pages of exclusive interviews, incredible LEGO creativity and in-depth reviews. We’re blasting off to Tatooine with bounty hunter Boba Fett for a unique Star Wars build worth climbing out of a Sarlacc pit for, but there’s much more to explore in this month’s LEGO magazine.
In this month’s issue of Blocks there’s scum and villainy on the cover! With Star Wars: The Book of Boba Fett on the horizon, we’re showing you how to put together a throne for the bounty hunter with our exclusive instructions. It’s perfect for recreating the dramatic finale of The Mandalorian Season 2 using the brand new minifigure from 75312 Boba Fett’s Starship.
For those who don’t fancy a visit to a twin-sunned desert, then within the new issue you’ll find many more LEGO features that you can’t get anywhere else.
Here are five that you’ll definitely want to check out…
Designing LEGO Seinfeld

Learn what brainstorming went into the episode easter eggs, why Jerry needed a new hair piece and tips from Brent for fans wanting to be successful on LEGO Ideas.

Marvelling at 76178 Daily Bugle
Stop the press! Just not the Blocks press. This month we’re reviewing the largest LEGO Marvel set ever – 76178 Daily Bugle. Standing at over a metre tall, coming with a whopping cast of heroes and villains and with a ton of comic book references, is it one to call the Avengers to assemble? Find out whether it’s a repetitive build, which characters are exclusive and just how many newspaper tiles you might find within.
A blast from the magnetic past with M-Tron
Opposites attract – that can be said for when classic LEGO Space met magnets, borrowing the elements from Train sets back in the 1990s. It was a time of vehicles with massive treads and cranes that put those magnets to use in the theme that made galactic mining a fun concept. After collecting ore and doing some topography recon, then why not build an M-Tron robot using our exclusive instructions?
It’s LEGO Luigi time
‘What? Stay home and take care of the house? Man, I’d rather be LEGO!’ Okay, so we’re paraphrasing Luigi, but that would probably be his reaction and thankfully Mario doesn’t have to collect all those coins alone now, as his brother joins the LEGO Super Mario theme. Learn how Luigi’s figure is subtly different to Mario, the redevelopment that went into his animation and how two-player gaming brings something new to the experience.
Drive down 70 years of LEGO roads
From the early beginnings as printed Town Plan mats to the new brickier versions introduced this year, we travel through the different incarnations of LEGO roads. See how the first Town Plan mats actually met Danish traffic laws, the ways classic 32×32 baseplates went through colour changes and what the new 2021 designs have to offer.
