Brick Fanatics Magazine Issue 10 in UK stores

Issue 10 of Brick Fanatics Magazine is in UK stores now, with a special look at 30 years of LEGO Pirates, as well as Hidden Side and 75252 Imperial Star Destroyer

2019 sees the 30th anniversary of LEGO Pirates, the LEGO Group’s fourth ever line that back in 1989 introduced a lot of firsts for the company.

From named characters with unique face prints to plenty of new pieces and a story expertly integrated into the design and marketing of the sets, Pirates paved the way for a lot of what the resulting three decades have offered.

Issue 10 sees Brick Fanatics Magazine sit down with the lead designer who worked on Pirates, bringing to life a number of your childhood classics, including 6285 Black Seas Barracuda. From an era at the LEGO Group very different to today, find out what it meant to be a LEGO designer in 1989, alongside some exclusively produced imagery inspired by Pirates.

This issue of Brick Fanatics Magazine, sold from today in UK stores of WHSmith and available to order at in single copy format (with additional postage and packaging charge) or as part of a 12-issue or 24-issue subscription (offering free postage, free issues and delivery of each issue fastest and first), also includes a detailed consideration of Hidden Side. We are in conversation with not only the design team behind this unique theme’s sets and tie-in technology, but also with some industry insiders able to offer their expertise on the LEGO Group’s latest initiative to merge digital and physical play.

Issue 10 of Brick Fanatics Magazine also has a first look at 75252 UCS Imperial Star Destroyer, a How To section once more packed with some great LEGO tips, tricks and techniques, and a designer walkthrough on Overwatch’s latest two releases – 75976 Wrecking Ball and 75977 Junkrat & Roadhog.

As one half of Tiro Media Ltd, I mix a passion for print and digital media production with a deep love of LEGO and can often be found on these pages eulogising about LEGO Batman, digging deeper into the LEGO Group’s inner workings, or just complaining about the price of the latest LEGO Star Wars set. Make a great impression when you meet me in person by praising EXO-FORCE as the greatest LEGO theme of all time. Follow me on Twitter @RobPaton or drop me an email at [email protected]
