Blocks magazine Issue 56 is available now, packed with reviews looking at the full range of sets based on the ultimate Marvel movie – Avengers: Endgame.

It is not just the culmination of the Infinity Stones epic that gets the deep dive though, with LEGO Ideas Steamboat Willie and the new series of Disney Collectible Minifigures also getting assessed by the Blocks review crew.

Star Wars fans can continue to find out how the 20-year-old LEGO theme developed, with part two – that’s Episode V – of an extensive interview with Jens Kronvold Frederiksen, the Design Director who has been there for the full brick saga, revealing how the range developed.

Impressive builds pack out the magazine this month, including two re-imaginings of classic BIONICLE creatures, a minifigure scale The Legend of Zelda model and a setting for a collection of Kingdoms sets.

In Technique, the benefits of ball and socket pieces are demonstrated, with animals, lettering and mechs showing how versatile those elements are. Brickpicker looks at the aftermarket prices for BIONICLE and hopes for the return of the fondly remembered line. Top Ten counts down the movie-based LEGO sets that did not match up with the features they were inspired by.

There is plenty more besides, including a look at the mobile app LEGO Life, the final part of the Family Tree series and a look at how to create impressive lighting effects when photographing LEGO creations. Retired Piece, Brickpicker and Brick Wife are some of the regular favourites within this month’s pages.
