Happy New Year from Bricks Magazine
January is the time for exciting new LEGO sets and 2016 is no exception
The best thing about a new year is new LEGO sets. It may be a time to make a fresh start or celebrate new beginnings, but when that clock strikes midnight on 31 December it means we have a whole new wave of sets in our grasp.
The 2016 line-up looks impressive: NINJAGO is taking to the skies, City has a great new island prison and the intergalactic craziness of NEXO KNIGHTS boasts some great new pieces. Alongside all these store releases we have two massive exclusives available in the form of the Ghostbusters fire station and the very impressive Brick Bank Modular.
Inspired by these vast buildings, this month at Bricks we are wandering into the world of all things urban. Starting with the Brick Bank, Mark and Dr Dave examine this modular floor by floor, leaving no tile unturned. Packed full of new elements and great colour pieces, this new offering looks set to be a winner. Chris Pearce investigates the latest 2016 sets and highlights what we should be looking forward to most. Alongside this there are amazing custom builds in the form of Janet VanD’s theatre, Patrick Bosman’s piece of historic Holland and Jamie Douglas’ twin-roofed Brickadilly station.
As it’s a new year we have some great new series starting. Huw Millington hits the rails and starts his journey aboard on LEGO trains while our new technique master, Luke Hutchinson, begins his medieval village build.
We have in-depth reviews on the latest Frozen sets, Architecture’s skyline of New York, a peep at the new Star Wars Battle Packs, Tim and I go inside the legendary LEGO Vault in Billund and Kev P takes a look at some Banksy-esque LEGO.
