LEGO James Bond has arrived in 76911 007 Aston Martin DB5 and he’s the cover star of Blocks, the LEGO magazine for fans, Issue 96. As well as a review of the new set, this edition includes analysis of the balance between licensed and homegrown LEGO themes, a guide to the mystery of Minitalia and an exclusive interview about the first ever LEGO CD-ROM.

On the topic of licences, the LEGO Group certainly makes many more movie and television inspired models than the company used to – so Issue 96 explores how this has evolved over two decades, providing insight into the reasons behind the shift.

Going back through the LEGO archives there are some strange stories – and none more confusing than that of Minitalia, a short-lived product line that saw model houses released in Italy with a specific brand name and lower quality bricks.

Bjarne P Tveskov stops by to share the story of how the first ever LEGO CD-ROM was created for the Technic theme, marking the first instance of ‘fluid play’, the blending of digital and physical experiences that is now commonplace.

A stop motion master goes in depth on his hobby to reveal why he loves LEGO Lord of the Rings so much, how Harry Potter lends itself to minifigure movies and why it’s fun to take a familiar franchise like Star Wars and give the story a twist.

Also in Issue 96:

  • Aquasharks – going underwater with the bad guys
  • Building brick wells
  • Inside the world’s largest LEGO Store
  • Is the minifigure-model balance right?
  • Top ten LEGO lighthouses
  • Plus much more!
