The latest theme from the LEGO Group is Avatar, getting everyone ready for James Cameron’s epic sequel The Way of Water. Issue 98 of Blocks, the LEGO magazine for fans, reviews LEGO Avatar sets and gets insights from the LEGO designers behind them into how they were developed.

All prices include delivery.

As this edition closes out the LEGO Group’s 90th anniversary year, Blocks magazine looks back at when Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen took over the role of LEGO CEO from his father. He discusses how he shaped the idea of introducing different themes and launched the minifigure in the late 1970s and early 1980s in an exclusive excerpt from The LEGO Story.

You’ll find another exclusive this month, but we can’t reveal what it is yet – it includes interviews with two prominent LEGO design professionals and someone else with a pretty cool job, who is involved in the LEGO world for the first time.

Then there’s a look at LEGO House Mood Mixer, as Blocks magazines goes inside the development of a new attraction. Illustrated with never-before-seen conceptual artwork, this provides insight into a very different pipeline to the model design process.

Set reviews include a look at Star Wars 75292 The Razor Crest, Super Mario 71411 The Mighty Bowser, Marvel 76209 Thor’s Hammer, Friends 41711 Emma’s Art School and Speed Champions 76912 Fast & Furious 1970 Dodge Charger R/T.

There’s much more within the 116-page LEGO magazine, including top 10 LEGO landmarks, a debate about Ideas set sizes and a nostalgic look at LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean.
