LEGO 40516 Everyone is Awesome is arriving for Pride month to celebrate the LGBTQIA+ community and we are talking to the set’s creator – Vice President of Design Matthew Ashton, who in an exclusive Q&A reveals how he came up with the concept and designed the model.
We also speak to LEGO Masters Executive Producer Steph Harris, who gives us a taste of what we can expect in the second US season and reveals how the series went from a concept for British television to a global juggernaut.
To celebrate the new Looney Tunes Collectible Minifigures, we present a series of brand new, exclusive images and hear from animation historian Jerry Beck. He knows everything there is to know about Bugs Bunny and friends, so is the perfect person to explain the history of these beloved characters and suggest why they have endured so well.
As ever there’s a wealth of creativity to be found within Blocks Magazine Issue 80, starting with a guide to rebuilding 80024 The Legendary Flower Fruit Mountain as an Islanders paradise.
