It seemed like only yesterday when we were talking about what was in store for readers of LEGO fandom publication Blocks magazine, within its 46th issue. That time, it was LEGO Star Wars that was center stage, particularly the UCS Millennium Falcon’s (75192) shinier counterpart, the Kessel Run version (75212).
For their next issue, Blocks will be shifting focus to something more realistic in LEGO, with features on the most recent automobile models they’ve put out. In the front cover we have the beautiful and complex Bugatti Chiron (42083) set from the LEGO Technic line, ready to be thoroughly discussed.
If readers still want the fantastical in their LEGO, then also covered on Blocks issue 47 is the gadget-laden LEGO Creator Expert Aston Martin DB5 (10262) of James Bond fame. It includes a LEGO Group design team interview and highlights from its Leicester Square launch, graced by Naomie “Moneypenny” Harris.
Other topics of interest in the latest Blocks are the recent LEGO Speed Champions sets, a feature on 3D-printing giant LEGO bricks from Star Wars FX master Matt Denton, a spotlight on the LEGO Incredibles video game, and one final update on the completion of The LEGO Ninjago Movie Bridge MOC.
While dated for September 2018, Blocks magazine issue 47 has been available for online subscription since Thursday, August 23. For more information on getting your own copy, printed on digital, check out their official website.
