Issue 109 of Blocks, the monthly LEGO magazine, contains an inside look at LEGO Star Wars Ultimate Collector Series 75367 Venator-Class Republic Attack Cruiser with Designer Hans Burkhard Schlömer. The massive set is a feat of engineering and design, so Hans reveals how he tackled the enormous project.
All prices include delivery.
Like every set, it took a long time for the Venator to go from an idea to a finished box. When the LEGO Group starts to plan out what products and ranges are released, hundreds of concepts are considered that will never see the light of day. Find out how a thorough process whittles down the ideas so that only the best make it through.
In the Reviews section, you can find out which sets turned out great and which ones perhaps aren’t so desirable. 42146 Liebherr Crawler Crane LR 13000 is a huge model – so is it worth the price tag and enormous space it requires? 10325 Alpine Lodge, 21343 Viking Village and 76262 Captain America’s Shield also go under the eye of the Blocks team.
This month’s Quick Builds offer three different options – you can build a mini version of 10318 Concorde that will fit on your desk, a mini version of the classic Pirates set 6276 Eldorado Fortress or a minifigure-scale working catapult for your knights.
You can get inspired for your next build by browsing through the amazing MOCs that have been created for the Space Jam contest over the years – including a cat in space.
Within the 116-page magazine you’ll also find out exactly how the LEGO Groups’ sustainability plans are going (without the sensationalism), learn what caused Trains to transition from 12V to 9V, count down the top 10 Christmas minifigures and much more.
