Subscriber copies are being posted a couple of days late this month because we have an exclusive feature about the LEGO Group’s biggest original theme yet – this behind-the-scenes story reveals how it came about, the thinking that went into it and how it is combining epic storytelling with encouraging creativity. Illustrated with beautiful concept art, it’s a story not to be missed.

As the cover reveals, there’s also a deep dive into the new video game LEGO 2K Drive. Art Director Emmanuel Valdez reveals everything you need to know about this fresh take on the digital brick world that brings kart racing and open world exploration together. It’s full of LEGO wackiness.

The creativity of the fan community is under the spotlight as Blocks takes a look at Summer Joust, the LEGO Castle themed contest that sees the world’s best builders competing to be most creative within the medieval period. In the physical realm, there’s a show report from this year’s Bricktastic event that saw AFOLs from around the world displaying impressive MOCs.

Nostalgists will love a look back at the Redcoats faction from LEGO Pirates, with classic sets revisited and instructions for building a little outpost using modern elements. A lesser known part of LEGO history is how the company made inroads into Germany, kickstarting the global expansion that saw the Danish company become the global behemoth that it is today; learn all about it this month.

That’s not all of course – read reviews of the LEGO Indiana Jones sets, learn some tricks for texturing your builds, hear from the academics using LEGO bricks in research and much, much more within the 116 page magazine.
