The sixth edition of the print publication all about LEGO leads with a striking cover image of Iron Man, to mark a seven-year minifigure retrospective inside. We take a detailed look through Tony Stark’s brick wardrobe thanks to some stunning photography, a clever workshop build and a fascinating write-up.

There’s also a LEGO Movie 2 Movie Maker walkthrough that offers insight into the LEGO Group’s philosophy on digital and physical play; a visual exploration of the Creator Expert Ford Mustang; and a How To section packed with some fantastic tips, tricks and techniques, including a guide to building your own displays for the Disney Collectible Minifigures Series 2.

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
