LEGO Star Wars themes Issue 5 as we head 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.

We also pick out the five LEGO Star Wars sets that we believe best define the last two decades of the theme, with at least one surprise choice in there.

This latest issue of the print publication all about LEGO also tackles 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 Žgalin 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 of the A5, 80-page magazine is packed with all of the above plus even more insight, ideas and inspiration on all things LEGO.

Brick Fanatics Magazine is also available to purchase online and in Barnes & Noble stores across the US (Issue 3 currently on sale). Subscribing to the magazine on either a 12-issue or 24-issue package offers free issues and free postage, as well as guaranteeing delivery of each issue fastest and first.

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]
