Five Blocks gifts for the LEGO fan in your life this Christmas

We know how it goes – you need a gift for the LEGO fan in your life at Christmas, but they seem to have everything. Well, here are some ideas for the 2020 holiday that might not already be part of that enormous LEGO collection…

Blocks Postman Minifigure

This is the latest exclusive minifigure from Blocks. Who better to capture as a minifigure than the postal worker who brings the magazine every month? The character uses official LEGO parts, including two 2×2 tiles. One of them says ‘happy birthday’, but this gift still works for Christmas too. If the head isn’t to your taste, you can switch it out for another in your collection to customise the character.

Blocks subscription gift packages

What’s the gift that gives the entire year-round? A blocks subscription! Ordering a subscription to the magazine will mean that every month, the brick aficionado in your life will get a fresh magazine packed with exclusive insight into the world of LEGO. The magazines will arrive ahead of the shops and they’ll also be entered into a monthly prize draw!

Two special gift packages include extra items too. The Gift Bundle includes a Blocks t-shirt and minifigure, while the Subscription Bundle and Binder includes a t-shirt, minifigure and binder.

Blocks magazine Binder

That collection of Blocks shouldn’t be haphazardly sat on a desk in a pile, it should be carefully filed away into Blocks magazine binders so it can go on the shelf. Navy storage binders with an embossed Blocks logo are the perfect way to store a Blocks reader’s collection.

Blocks t-shirt – with exclusive minifigure

Blue and black tees featuring the Blocks logo small on the front and large on the back are available in a variety of sizes. They are the perfect way to encourage your LEGO fan to take off that ugly Christmas jumper they insist on wearing. What’s more, each t-shirt comes with an exclusive Blocks magazine minifigure, which uses official LEGO parts.

Blocks magazine Cover Tiles

Sure, your LEGO fan might have dozens and dozens of copies of Blocks, but do their minifigures? These 2×2 LEGO tiles, printed with Blocks covers, are the perfect way to add a bit of Blocks to any minifigure scene. They are the right size to fit into the little character’s hands, so even the minifigures can express their fandom.

For advice on buying any of the items above, contact subs@silverbackpublishing.rocks.

To get Blocks every month – at a discount and earlier than the shops – order a 12-month or 24-month subscription. Direct debit payment options are available too; to find out more get in touch via subs@silverbackpublishing.rocks.

Special delivery! It’s the Blocks Postman Minifigure

Blocks Postman Minifigure is the latest exclusive minifigure for LEGO fans and is in stock now.

As regular readers know, Blocks has been taking on reader feedback to offer the best magazine experience for LEGO fans. In the past year, Blocks has switched to improved paper, perfect binding and introduced an easy-to-use website.

But we’ve heard one thing loud and clear – Blocks readers want more exclusive minifigures to add to their collections! So here is the new Blocks Postman Minifigure.

Given that this year has seen more and more readers switch over to having the magazine posted out, the Blocks Postman Minifigure seemed like the perfect character to add to the collection. The minifigure is made of authentic LEGO elements, with exclusive printing.

‘Brickish Mail’ is a nod to the British home of Blocks magazine, but this postie is happy to travel worldwide. As well as featuring a satchel accessory, the minifigure comes with two exclusive 2×2 tiles. One features the classic Blocks minifigure and Brick Wife, while the other features a ‘Happy Birthday’ message so this can be given as a gift.

To really customise the minifigure, you can of course swap out the head and hat with others from your collection. We’d love to see the scenes you build and incorporate the minifigure into.

This exclusive Blocks minifigure is priced at £11.50 and is available to buy now.

For those ordering a print subscription, there’s a special deal – using the code postie1 at checkout, Blocks Postman Minifigure costs just £5.99.

Check out the latest issue of Blocks magazine and the 12-month and 24-month subscriptions available in our store. We also have a direct debit payment option available – email subs@silverbackpublishing.rocks for more information.

What are the rarest LEGO minifigures?

Everyone knows Mr. Gold fetches a pretty penny online, but he’s far from the rarest LEGO minifigure out there. Just ask Shawn Storoe, the man behind minifigpriceguide.com. Or, better yet, let us do the hard work for you by picking up the latest issue of Blocks magazine.

In a special in-depth feature, we chat to Shawn about how he built the Minifigure Price Guide, what constitutes a truly rare minifigure, and how collectors manage to get their hands on them. Some of these tiny plastic people are so ridiculously rare that they don’t appear for decades after they’re manufactured, while others can command eye-watering five-figure sums.

We’ve also spoken to LEGO minifigure fanatic Samuel Burkhardt, who you might know on Instagram as @rarest_lego_minifigures. Samuel currently owns a handful of those ultra-rare characters, including some highly sought-after metal Star Wars minifigures. Samuel reveals how he started amassing his one-of-a-kind collection, and gives a few tips on how you can get started.

To find out more about the world of rare minifigure collecting, you’ll need to order a copy of Issue 69. Alternatively, check out our subscription deals, which can be started with Issue 69. Subscribers get the magazine early, free copies of the mag, and exclusive entry into our bi-monthly subscribers’ prize draw. Signing up between now and September 1 will put you in the running for 80009 Pigsy’s Food Truck.
