LEGO SDCC 2019 Iron Man

If you’ve been to the LEGO booth at San Diego Comic Con, you’ll notice that there are life size models of characters that are brick-built for fans to take pictures with. There are two that have been revealed so far. One is the Iron Man in the Mark LXXXV suit that is holding the Infinity Stones. It took designers 255 hours to design and create using 35,119 bricks.

The other character is a brand new one to the Star Wars Universe and will be in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker which is the Red Sith Trooper. It stands at 6’2″ and designers took 259 hours to design and build using 34,307 pieces.

The models will be displayed at the LEGO Booth #2829.

Brick Fanatics Magazine Issue 8 Cover

Brick Fanatics Magazine marks 50 years since the Apollo 11 moon landing with NASA and the LEGO Group in an exclusive Issue 8

July marks half a century since the Apollo 11 lunar module touched down on the moon and Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin took man’s first steps on to its surface.

To celebrate, Issue 8 of Brick Fanatics Magazine goes back to 1969 with the help of NASA historian Brian C. Odom to discover the details and the moments that made history, whilst Creator Expert Design Manager Specialist Jamie Berard reveals how those shaped the design of the LEGO Group’s 10266 Lunar Lander.

Celebrate design ingenuity with this unique cover feature in Issue 8, exclusively featuring NASA and the LEGO Group.

Issue 8 of Brick Fanatics Magazine is available to order now, with shipping due from late July into early August. Subscribe to Brick Fanatics Magazine to benefit from free issues, free postage, delivery of each issue fastest and first, and other noteworthy benefits.

Inside this issue we also sit down with the LEGO Jurassic World design team to find out exactly how the mini-series LEGO Jurassic World: Legend of Isla Nublar came about and, why it opened up a number of creative possibilities for them. We also find out from Design Manager Marcos Bessa all about how a crazy concept became a unique LEGO set in the form of 75938 T. rex vs Dino-Mech Battle.

Issue 8 also goes from one Buzz to another, as we take a special look at the latest LEGO Buzz Lightyear, before heading back 20 years in time to discover just how innovative the Adventurers line was, with a look at the classic 5988 Temple of Anubis set.

Our packed How To section demonstrates the creative options that are open to building simple but effective displays and bases for your builds, before offering step-by-step instructions on a minifigure scale 2019 McLaren Formula 1 car.

Reaction to the upcoming LEGO Star Wars Skywalker Saga video game is also inside, as is a considered take on the LEGO Group’s progress – or not – towards plant-based LEGO bricks.

Not done talking to Brick Fanatics Magazine in Issue 8 is Jamie Berard, as the Creator Expert expert hangs around long enough to walk us through the key concepts and details built into the just announced 10269 Harley-Davidson Fat Boy , alongside some beautiful, exclusive photography of the motorcycle.
