The fourth edition of the monthly print publication all about LEGO takes its lead from Speed Champions, courtesy of a cover build straight out of 1967’s Monte Carlo Rally. Inside, we tell the remarkable story of the Mini Cooper S and celebrate its iconic status and entry into LEGO history as an official set with a unique build.
This issue of Brick Fanatics Magazine also has an exclusive double designer interview, as we sit down with the creative leads behind the two versions of the McLaren Senna – the real world one and the LEGO one.
Issue 4 continues the magazine’s aim to get readers building, with another in-depth How To section packed with LEGO tips, tricks and techniques, and we also take a statistical tour through 20 Years of LEGO Star Wars, with a six-page special.
The LEGO Group talk us through how and why they chose to revisit classic sets for the new NINJAGO LEGACY line, courtesy of a fascinating designer walkthrough of not only the recently released 70665 The Samurai Mech, but also its sister set from seven years ago, 9448 Samurai Mech.
Issue 4 of Brick Fanatics Magazine has a look behind Hidden Side, hears from the fan designer whose IDEAS pitch became 21316 The Flintstones, and investigates the concept of investing in LEGO – are there big bucks to be had in bricks?
