Bricks Issue 4 press release

Bricks Issue 4 press release

Issue 4 of Bricks magazine is now out. Here's the press release and some sample spreads:
Space is a LEGO theme that sits close to the hearts of many fans. The ’80s era in particular is adored and looked upon with a nostalgic glaze so strong it inhibits some from recognising new Space releases as valid in comparison.
This issue is a timely nod to the amazing LEGO space genre and is a timely tribute as the first wave of Star Wars: The Force Awakens sets hit our stores and they do not disappoint. Inside there is a full summary of all the sets, with some nice little secrets added in. Beyond the obvious choice of Star Wars Bricks fully doffs its cap to Space: there is a catch up with supremo designer Mark Stafford, Classic Space fan Jeremy Williams takes you through the early days while Chris Pearce talks about why Space Police III is the real ‘classic’ Space theme for him. In addition Peter Reid provides a full rundown of amazing mechs, while Dr Dave is busy putting all the City Space Shuttles through their paces.

Meanwhile back on solid ground we take a good look around the Temple of Airjitzu, NINJAGO’s biggest set to date. We also knock three times on the door of the Big Bang Theory set and go all nature-loving with the Bright Bricks gang. Bricks has an exclusive look inside the build room at LEGOLAND Windsor and chat with the team as they construct their new Santa Pod dragstrip, while Adam White takes us through what we can expect from new video game LEGO Dimensions.
You will find all this plus some marvellous Masterclass builds, free instructions from Bright Bricks and much, much more!

With 126-pages packed full of inspirational models and exclusive features Bricks is the premier LEGO fan magazine. With a price of just £4.99, why accept anything less? Order now or subscribe to Bricks at http://store.republic66media.com/
