This summer sees two massive LEGO-related sequels arriving in cinemas, both of which get the big build treatment they deserve in the latest issue of Blocks magazine.
Pirates of the Caribbean sees its fifth instalment sail into cinema screens just as The Silent Mary finds itself shipwrecked on LEGO Store shelves, inspiring a build project like never before. A series of scenes commissioned exclusively for Blocks magazine showcases the new set with plenty of tips along the way to inspire your next Pirates build.
As for the other sequel, the dramatic scene in which the band of misfits that are the Guardians of the Galaxy face off against the Abilisk was not without its challenges as a build, but the finished result was well worth the hard work. So much so that when you flip this month’s magazine over, you get an alternative cover featuring the Guardians.
But that’s not all, as we delve into how the topic of visual thinking relates to building with LEGO, TT Games take us behind the scenes of their most creative video game yet and we go through the LEGO Friends houses to see what makes these homes so appealing.
In Technique we demonstrate how to build curtains and blinds to decorate those LEGO interiors, BrickPicker looks at Creator sets to see whether 3-in-1 means three times the profits and the Reviews section measures up the latest Technic, Guardians of the Galaxy and Pirates of the Caribbean sets. With plenty more filling the pages in between, it’s another month full of LEGO action.
