Blocks magazine Issue 82


Blocks, the LEGO magazine for fans, is building Boba Fett’s throne in Issue 82 ready for the character’s new Star Wars series later this year. There’s also a look back at M-Tron, the story of LEGO roads and an introduction to Luigi as he joins the Super Mario theme. Plus, we review the new 76178 Daily Bugle set and are giving a copy away to one lucky subscriber!


It was his father’s armour! Boba Fett is back and there was only one way to present his new minifigure on the cover of Blocks Issue 82, the LEGO magazine for fans – on his throne, ready for Star Wars: The Book of Boba Fett. We include instructions to build your own version as well as reviewing the new sets based on The Mandalorian Season 2.

All prices include delivery.

On the topic of epics, LEGO Marvel has delivered the theme’s tallest ever model in 76178 Daily Bugle. The incredible Spider-Man model packs in details, minifigures and audacious scale – but you’ll need to read our review to see whether it comes together as a stand-out model. Another way you could find out is to win our latest subscriber competition, as we’re giving a copy of the set to one lucky fan.

If Super Mario is more your thing, then we’ve got everything you need to know about Luigi joining the theme and how the two-player experience works. Actual LEGO designers explain how the theme and play has developed, as well as sharing a few tips for earning extra coins.

The new Seinfeld set brings the defining sitcom to the brick thanks to a concept from fan designer Brent Waller, who joins the LEGO design experts behind the set to explain how it came about and how they narrowed down their list of references to include.

Blockstalgia looks back at the magnet-packed M-Tron sets from Space, revisiting the classic models and even sharing instructions for a modern robot in the classic style.
