Though a Marvel-heavy issue that is packed with reviews looking at the full range of sets based on the ultimate Marvel movie – Avengers: Endgame, there is content for Star Wars fans in the form of an extensive interview with Jens Kronvold Frederiksen, the Design Director who has been there for the full brick saga, that reveals how the range developed.

Impressive builds pack out the magazine this month, including two re-imaginings of classic BIONICLE creatures, a minifigure scale The Legend of Zelda model and a setting for a collection of Kingdoms sets.

In Technique, the benefits of ball and socket pieces are demonstrated, with animals, lettering and mechs showing how versatile those elements are. Brickpicker looks at the aftermarket prices for BIONICLE and hopes for the return of the fondly remembered line. Top Ten counts down the movie-based LEGO sets that did not match up with the features they were inspired by.

There is plenty more besides, including a look at the mobile app LEGO Life, the final part of the Family Tree series and a look at how to create impressive lighting effects when photographing LEGO creations. Retired Piece, Brickpicker and Brick Wife are some of the regular favourites within this month’s pages.

The latest issue of Brick Magazine, which is packed full of sweet, sweet Avengery goodness, is available now. To get Blocks magazine delivered to your door – ahead of everyone else – visit and check out their subscription deals.

Back before the world wide web and social media ruled our shopping habits there was a long-established practice of driving around all the nearby toy stores to hunt down the latest releases.

I managed to find everything I wanted in stores!
I found some but had to resort to big box websites to complete my haul.
I didn't bother stepping outside and ordered everything online.
I haven't bought any of the TFF product yet. Roll on clearance sales.

I've so over it, no more Star Wars collecting for me.
