Pirates and Guardians inspire incredible builds in Blocks Issue 32

Posted by ,

Here's a press release for this month's Blocks magazine:

This summer sees two massive LEGO-related sequels arriving in cinemas, both of which get the big build treatment they deserve in the latest issue of Blocks magazine.

Pirates of the Caribbean sees its fifth installment sail into cinema screens just as The Silent Mary finds itself shipwrecked on LEGO Store shelves, inspiring a build project like never before. A series of scenes commissioned exclusively for Blocks magazine showcases the new set with plenty of tips along the way to inspire your next Pirates build.

As for the other sequel, the dramatic scene in which the band of misfits that are the Guardians of the Galaxy face off against the Abilisk was not without its challenges as a build, but the finished result was well worth the hard work. So much so that when you flip this month’s magazine over, you get an alternative cover featuring the Guardians.

But that’s not all, as we delve into how the topic of visual thinking relates to building with LEGO, TT Games take us behind the scenes of their most creative video game yet and we go through the LEGO Friends houses to see what makes these homes so appealing.

In Technique we demonstrate how to build curtains and blinds to decorate those LEGO interiors, BrickPicker looks at Creator sets to see whether 3-in-1 means three times the profits and the Reviews section measures up the latest Technic, Guardians of the Galaxy and Pirates of the Caribbean sets. With plenty more filling the pages in between, it’s another month full of LEGO action.

I liked this issue, according to my daughter the Guardian MOC is fantastic, all those pink bits! It is apparently a great representation of the movie scene but it isn't my thing, even though it is a good build. My favourite is the Red Arrows MOC. Still a good magazine for fans of all ages and great to see it still going strong.

I think this magazine has continued to deliver - its cut down on the 'news items' as they realise this is covered better/quicker by websites, and has a good mix of reviews / techniques / opinion articles to fill the magazine.

I'd love to see the GotG MOC - are images posted anywhere else online?

I hadn't realised how much details were in the Friends houses. I loved the feature on the houses.

Any news on the Bricks/Brick Culture front? I have to call it a front now. Affront rather...
