It’s another packed 116 pages in Blocks magazine Issue 74, with a bumper Reviews section to help fans choose what they’ll be buying ahead of Christmas and in the January sales. The full launch wave of Monkie Kid sets is covered along with 10275 Winter Village Elf Clubhouse, LEGO Ideas 21324 123 Sesame Street, LEGO Star Wars 75290 Mos Eisley Cantina, 75318 The Child and more.

The LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special is taking the title of something pretty terrible and adding the word ‘LEGO’ – but there’s a lot more to know about what went into coming up with this new animated special. Lucasfilm’s Josh Rimes reveals what went into dreaming up this Disney+ special.

With 31109 Pirate Ship and 21322 Pirates of Barracuda Bay released this year, there’s no better time to measure up the various LEGO vessels that have sailed the brick seas over the decades. Anatomy delves deep into what makes a LEGO pirate ship to see how they have evolved over time, going all the way back to 6285 Black Seas Barracuda.

Along with regulars including Blockstalgia, Month in MOCs, Piece Perception, Technique, Rebuild Challenge and Ideas Showcase, there’s a report from this year’s virtual BrickCon, the top 10 LEGO sets inspired by history and everything you need to known about the LEGO Group’s China strategy.
