Issue 1 – Betrayal at Cloud City
The very first issue of Brick Fanatics Magazine leads with a large-scale project to add some much-needed height to the LEGO Star Wars set 75222 Betrayal at Cloud City, before meeting the father and son team behind the charity initiative bringing LEGO to children in Uganda.
This debut edition of the magazine also includes a look at 71043 Hogwarts Castle – thanks in part to an interview with its designer Justin Ramsden – as well as a trip down memory lane with special looks at LEGO Town’s 6339 Shuttle Launch Pad and 4483 AT-AT. There’s also a hands-on experiment to track the true cost of collecting Collectible Minifigures, some nifty 60-piece LEGO builds, and some fascinating debut columns from our LEGO insiders.
Issue 2 – The LEGO Movie 2
Meanwhile, Issue 2 heads straight into The LEGO Movie 2 with a special walkthrough from the movie’s creative team on how they created the Mad Max-style wastelands of Apocalyseburg. With exclusive imagery and concept artwork from the film’s development, we are also treated to the inside story of Unikitty’s creation as a character and her evolution into Ultrakatty, courtesy of LEGO Vice President of Design, Matthew Ashton.
Merlin Entertainment’s expansion of LEGOLAND into South Korea, a statistical look at the vibrant introduction of new LEGO colour Coral, and another great micro LEGO build offer a mix of insight and interactivity to the early pages of Issue 2.
Further inside is a consideration for the hidden appeal that LEGO Star Wars’ smaller Sandcrawler set offers the right LEGO fan, a rough and rugged field test for the surprisingly waterproof App-controlled Batmobile, and a look back at LEGO Wild West’s iconic 6769 Fort Legorado.
