LEGO DREAMZzz is here and Blocks, the monthly LEGO magazine, has an inside look at how the new sets were designed. See how they went from concept sketches to final models as the design team provides insight into their process.
Senior Designer Pierre Normandin had the tricky task of taking a beloved LEGO Pirates set from 1989 and updating it as a modern model – and 10320 Eldorado Fortress is the result. He explains the thinking that went into the new set, how he modernised it and incorporated new secrets in the Bluecoats’ base.
The foundations of modern LEGO design were developed in the 1990s and early 2000s. In an exclusive interview, Ole Vestergaard Poulsen discusses how he and his team introduced new elements to Technic, then to System, to give more appealing form to LEGO sets. Thanks to these foundational pieces, today LEGO sets depict supercars and spaceships more accurately than ever before.
There’s much more within the 116-page LEGO magazine, including SHIPtember, a Town Flight retrospective, an amazing life-sized jeep build and much more.
