Brick Fanatics Magazine Issue 2 cover 1

Issue 2 of Brick Fanatics Magazine previews The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part with an interesting walk through Apocalypseburg, courtesy of those at the LEGO Group who created it. Exclusive interviews, never-before-seen artwork and behind-the-scenes concept work provides readers with a unique look at how the world of Bricksburg was taken into the apocalypse for the 2019 sequel to 2014’s The LEGO Movie.

Alongside this, Vice-President of Design Matthew Ashton reveals the unique design story behind the creation of Unikitty, and then, Ultrakatty, whilst Senior LEGO Designer Nicolaas Vás takes us on a set tour of 70831 Emmet’s Dream House/Rescue Rocket!

There’s much more packed into Issue 2 too, including a piece exploring how the latest, smallest Sandcrawler shouldn’t be overlooked because of its size, and a true test of how tough – and waterproof – the App-Controlled Batmobile really is.

We consider the new LEGOLAND opening in South Korea, analyse a brand new colour released by the LEGO Group, and reflect on NINJAGO’s decision to go back to its roots.

There’s the small matter of our three, fascinating LEGO insider columns, a look at one of the first Creator 3-in-1 sets from 2007, and we revisit the classic Western set of many a childhood, 6769 Fort Legorado.

Brick Fanatics Magazine is an 80-page, A5 print publication, available for purchase via our website. There are regular sections such as Review+, On Topic and Retro, as well as insightful, interesting and inspirational features, builds, interviews and so much more. For just £5, $8 or €8.25, there’s a lot each month to hold in your hands. And it’s even cheaper if you subscribe, and you’d really be supporting the work that we are doing, so go do that!

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
