Blocks Issue 52: Batman, Classic LEGO Club and Photographing Hogwarts

Blocks magazine issue 52 is out now, here’s what you’ll find inside this packed issue….

Batman returns in Blocks magazine Issue 52, as the LEGO DC Super Heroes theme gets a deep dive.

It is not all about the brooding darkness of Batman though, as Harry Potter show up in Blocks Photography, with Rob Damiano demonstrating how to photograph 75954 Hogwarts Great Hall – with no wizarding schooling required.

Not only does the LEGO Ideas Pop-up Book get a review this month, but MOD Squad takes advantage of the set’s design to reveal how to create different scenes for the brick built tome. Another build project that continues in this issue is the Pirate Island Theme Park, which expands with a rocking ship ride.

Nostalgia fiends will find their fill in a look back at the LEGO Clubs that have gone before, flicking through some of the classic material that relates to the long-running scheme. In Family Tree, this month the spotlight turns to recreation, taking a look at how minifigures have kicked back over the decades.

While Technique looks at how loose connections can actually benefit a build, a special feature also introduces the unique world of digital building. Top Ten counts down the most obscure Star Wars minifigures, Ideas Showcase looks at a Japanese Tea Garden and Month in MOCs checks out a beautiful Ford Model A Rat Rod.

Brickpicker asks which time of year is best to buy LEGO sets while Month in LEGO provides a buying guide for the new 2019 sets and re-caps LEGO MASTERS Series 2.
