At £649.99 / $699.99, 75252 Imperial Star Destroyer is the joint-most expensive set ever released by the LEGO Group for UK collectors, and second most expensive for US collectors after the UCS Millennium Falcon. At that level, the 4,784-piece wonder is worth our special attention this issue.
Back in the real world, Brick Fanatics Magazine also takes a special look at 21318 Tree House, taking the largest Ideas set released to a unique tree house location in the New Forest. The UK national park is home to rare wildlife, protected woodland and a purpose-built education centre up in the trees, where we were lucky to spend a day with Countryside Education Trust’s Chief Executive, Jane Cooper, and play a bit of LEGO too.
Issue 11 of Brick Fanatics Magazine also includes a preview of Speed Champions’ first confirmed release of 2020, as we exclusively discuss with the theme’s design lead a potentially very significant change in design format.
Inside is also a closer look at the LEGO Group’s history with advent calendars – as four editions release for 2019, we crunch the numbers behind these 24-build holiday sets. There’s also a detailed look at the latest Two-Face minifigure, from 76122 Batcave Clayface Invasion.
Brick Fanatics Magazine is dedicated to building your world of LEGO, and nowhere is that more apparent than in our How To section, once more packed with unique LEGO tips, tricks and techniques, including this month guides on how to brick build minifigures, how to defy gravity (photographically speaking) and how to make great use of another essential piece.
This issue we combine two copies of 75947 Hagrid’s Hut: Buckbeak’s Rescue to build one complete Hagrid’s Hut, and show you how, we take a step back in time with classic Town set 6395 Victory Lap Raceway and our insider columns this week include discovering why the LEGO Group don’t touch fast food anymore and a LEGO designer’s visit to the ultimate LEGO fan convention, Skærbæk.
Brick Fanatics Magazine is brought to you every month by a team of dedicated LEGO fans. Support the work that we do and enjoy the insight, variety and creativity that we bring to the magazine by subscribing from or ordering a copy of Issue 11 today.
- 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].
