Blocks magazine Issue 76



Blocks Issue 76 is a packed edition of the magazine for LEGO fans. As well as finding out everything there is to know about 10276 Colosseum at the Ashmolean Museum, there’s a Star Wars: The Mandalorian mod project, a step-by-step classic race car build and the inside scoop on toy fair events.

All prices include delivery.

The epic LEGO 10276 Colosseum – the biggest set that has ever been released – deserves an epic feature. Blocks magazine takes the 9,076-piece model to the University of Oxford’s Ashmolean Museum, where it goes on display among the artefacts as we hear from expert Dr Milena Melfi about the real-life location.

More recent history is also covered, as Blocks lifts the lid on what toy fair events are all about – how did they begin, why do they matter and what does the LEGO Group use the shows for? We explain it all.

There is something for everyone when it comes to building this issue; LEGO Star Wars 75270 Obi-Wan Kenobi’s Hut can be converted into the cantina from The Mandalorian, a classic LEGO race car gets a sleek upgrade and there are many ways to build a grandfather clock. Instructions for all of these models are included.

With 2021 barely having started, there are plenty of new LEGO sets to review. We delve into the new releases, casting a discerning eye over 10278 Police Station, 80107 Spring Festival, Minifigures Series 21, Marvel sets and more.

Along with regulars including Blockstalgia, Month in MOCs, Piece Perception, Technique, Ideas Showcase and From the Vault, there’s an interview with 40448 Vintage Car designer Arne Jahnke, a debate about the new LEGO road plates and the top 10 LEGO Ideas contest winning MOCs.
