Blocks Magazine issue 36 out now

Posted by ,

Here's word of the latest issue:

This month’s issue of Blocks magazine, on sale today, is a celebration of The LEGO NINJAGO Movie with exclusive behind the scenes access and a mind blowing big build.

If fans are wondering how LEGO NINJAGO is being translated to the big screen, then this issue of Blocks has the answers. Our all-access look at The LEGO NINJAGO Movie begins in Hollywood, with interviews with Dave Franco – voice of Lloyd, the Green Ninja – and director Charlie Bean. The pair take Blocks through the process of adapting NINJAGO into an animated feature, illustrated with never before seen concept art.

Back in Billiund, the key designers behind The LEGO NINJAGO Movie take readers through the process of working alongside a major movie production, explaining the development of the sets, their contribution to the film itself and teasing a few little Easter eggs to watch out for on screen. Simon Lucas, Nicolaas Vás and Chris Stamp also provide a focused look at the development of 70620 NINJAGO City, demonstrating how it became the masterpiece that it is.

Daniel Konstanski is inspired by the amazing concept art that was designed for The LEGO NINJAGO Movie to build a massive version of NINJAGO City, taking ques from all of the different styles, colours and features that are found in the cinematic version. If readers think that Blocks magazine has gone big before, they have not seen anything yet.

Of course The LEGO NINJAGO Movie special would not be complete without reviews of the entire theme, giving readers some recommendations about which sets to put at the top of the must-have list. In our regular Technique section readers are spoilt for choice for brick bed designs, while Brick Wife is exasperated at the AFOL’s escalating polybag obsession – and of course, Month in LEGO keeps track of all of the key goings on in the world of the brick.

To avoid the risk of Lord Garmadon’s forces when heading out to buy your copy of Blocks magazine – and get the magazine early every month – set up a subscription at www.blocksmag.com.

Is this sold anywhere physically in New Zealand?

'Cues', not 'ques'. A cue is a prompt. A queue is a line of people. The confusion probably comes from a cue also being a long stick.

Its a good issue - I was starting to find it a bit stale, but they seem to be hitting their stride now - last months was good too.

@Canestri10: Blocks is sold at Whitcoulls - but three months after publication. If you sign up to All Blocks, there is a subscription deal for new subscribers where you will also get the magazine a few days after it is published in the UK.

@Jackthenipper - totally agree, this is a really good issue after a few "meh" issues this year! Some brilliant photography, well worth checking out... like the rumour of a possible Wayne Manor D2C too in the news bit at the front!
