LEGO Star Wars is such a big licensed line in the overall LEGO catalogue that it’s no surprise there are publications focusing on that theme in certain countries around the world. In fact, last month, the UK edition of the LEGO Star Wars magazine had a free Kylo Ren shuttle polybag as part of its promotional.
Blocks Magazine has just released its 40th issue and it will be looking at some of the mega-sets that LEGO has recently released, starting of course, with LEGO’s colossal sell-out set, the LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (75192). Issue #40 will also look into the crazy, and intricately fun details of the Joker Manor (70922) and Destiny Bounty (70618) and see if something new can be created out of them.
LEGO as a brand has long since transcended their original toy products to become a prominent presence on a multimedia scale. Aside from the animated TV series, the direct-video movies and the cinematic blockbusters, LEGO has a good run in the print media as well.
We’re just less than a month away before Star Wars Episode VIII – The Last Jedi debuts in theaters worldwide, and with the first wave of LEGO Star Wars The Last Jedi sets out already, there is still one nagging question in every LEGO Star Wars fan: will old man Luke Skywalker ever make an appearance in any particular LEGO Star Wars TLJ set?
One of the new themes that LEGO introduced last year was the rather quirky Nexo Knights line, which depicted a blend of medieval aesthetics and futuristic technology (sort of LEGO’s attempt to create a Castle and Space theme). The adventures of a band of knights guided by a digital wizard defending the kingdom of Knighton against Jestro and the Book of Monsters Monstrox have also been chronicled in a 3D animated series that has been running on the Cartoon Network for four seasons.
