Brick Fanatics Magazine is a new 80-page, A5-size, monthly print magazine all about LEGO, for fans of the brick looking to build upon their hobby in any way they want to.


This latest issue heads 20 years back in time, to when Lucasfilm and the LEGO Group first sat down to discuss creating a series of construction toys based on a galaxy far, far away. Exclusive interviews with some of the handful of people involved at the very start of this unique partnership explain exactly how LEGO Star Wars came to be, delve deep into the design process that went into creating that very first wave of sets, and reveal the building blocks put in place that paved the way for the next two decades of success.

Also included is a deep dive into the powerful RC Stunt Racer Technic set, and offers a solution to the imbalanced drive that it has. Senior Designer at the LEGO Group, Rok ˇgalin Kobe, offers some fascinating insight on the Architecture set San Francisco in an exclusive set walkthrough, whilst in our How To section we try to discover other ways to use the new CITY parachute element, and consider how composition can make all the difference in shooting LEGO on your phone.

This edition is packed with all of the above plus even more insight, ideas and inspiration on all things LEGO and can be purchased online via brickfanatics.com/magazine, as wellas WHSmith in the UK and Barnes & Noble in the USA.
