You’re a wizard! You don’t have to be Harry Potter to get an invite to Hogwarts anymore, as proved by the incredible new 76391 Hogwarts Icons set that graces the cover of Blocks Issue 83, the LEGO magazine for fans. Inside you’ll read our in-depth set review, before getting a guide to make all of the modern Hogwarts Castle sets match and combine for the ultimate layout.

All prices include delivery.

It’s not all Wizarding World this month though, as Issue 83 also visits the Marvel multiverse. Whether you’re more interested in how The Infinity Saga sets were designed or how Disney+ shows like Loki and WandaVision inspired a whole series of Collectible Minifigures, we’ve got exclusive designer insights.

There’s also a visit to a galaxy far, far away, with the creatives behind Star Wars 75309 Republic Gunship sharing thoughts on realising a set inspired by a fan vote. As well as reviewing that model, this month contains revies of the recent Clone Wars models.

Into the real world, Brick History is a travelling exhibition from the mind of Warren Elsmore. The professional LEGO builder reveals how he and his team came up with the concept, what his favourite models and what it takes to distil a few million years of history into a touring show.

Blockstalgia revisits LEGO sets inspired by the indigenous peoples of America, looking at the classic mid-1990s sets and then providing instructions to build a tipi using LEGO elements.
