The incredible LEGO Ideas Globe takes the cover spot for Issue 89 of Blocks, the LEGO magazine for fans.

All prices include delivery.

Blocks, the LEGO magazine for fans, is reviewing LEGO Ideas 21332 The Globe – the new set builds a sphere using the notoriously square LEGO elements. There are also reviews of The Batman movie sets, the new Star Wars Dark Trooper model and Collectible Minifigures Series 22.

The LEGO Group’s foray into the action figure market launched 20 years ago. Galidor is infamous among LEGO fans, but does it deserve that reputation? Daniel Konstanki takes a look at the theme two decades since its launch, then LEGO Senior Designer Nicolaas Vás shares his creative journey with Nick Bluetooth and friends.

It’s not the only dose of nostalgia this month, with a retrospective fondly remembering the original LEGO Star Wars video games. Naturally, there’s also a preview of LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, the hotly anticipated modern update.

LEGO Design Manager Chris Stamp stops by to talk through the latest wave of Speed Champions sets, going under the hood and explaining how the team got these new cars – including the first ever brick Lotus – over the finish line.

If you’ve acquired the LEGO Star Wars UCS AT-AT, you can use the guide in this edition to hollow out the neck – with this exclusive mod, minifigures can wander a passageway from the walking tank’s body to its head.

Also in Issue 89:

  • Dragon Knights – classic sets revisited.
  • Learn how to build carts and carriages.
  • Hot Topic – was VIDIYO doomed from the beginning?
  • Top ten globe-trotting LEGO sets.
  • Build a modern magic shop so that Majisto can sell some spells.
  • Plus much more!
