Blocks, the LEGO magazine for fans, is going inside the design of LEGO Harry Potter 76405 Hogwarts Express – Collectors’ Edition in Issue 97. Potterhead and Design Master Marcos Bessa reveals how he took the classic engine and built the most detailed version yet.
Issue 97 is available now as a single issue or as part of a subscription and will be in UK stores from November 3. Everyone who subscribes by November 30 will be in with a chance of winning 76405 Hogwarts Express – Collectors’ Edition! Don’t forget that subscription prices are frozen until November 2, so be sure to order before then to secure the best price.
It’s not just LEGO Harry Potter this month though, as the LEGO Ideas design team is revealing how the three most recent sets were taken from fan concepts to official LEGO models. 21337 Table Football was one of the biggest challenges yet for the LEGO design team, while 21336 The Office and 21335 Motorized Lighthouse have their own fascinating development stories.
With Christmas coming, we have a countdown of the best festive sets so far, a look at the new books available for the holiday and a review of 10308 Holiday Main Street.
If you want to do some building, we also have a guide to constructing a base for 10497 Galaxy Explorer, tips for building board games from bricks and instructions showing how to put a modern version of a Power Miners rock monster together.
There’s plenty more to be found within the 116-page magazine, including a look at the modern classic Power Miners sets, an impressive Fabuland layout, visiting the LEGO headquarters in Billund and much, much more.
