Blocks magazine is out and on the shelves and takes a look back at ten years of LEGO.

With the Gingerbread House taking centre stage on a winter wonderland front cover, Blocks magazine Issue 62 reviews the new set in a packed issue that looks back at the decade in LEGO.

The latest issue of Blocks magazine is taking a look back at the last 10 years of all things LEGO. With the 2010s coming to a close, this special feature picks out sets, minifigures and occasions that have marked out this decade. It is a great opportunity to walk down memory lane and see just what a packed 10 years it has been.

A different kind of LEGO designer provides unique insight into his job, with Element Designer Jaime Sanchez explaining just what goes into dreaming up new parts. LEGO Architecture Senior Designer Rok Zgalin Kobe also provides a peek behind the curtain, revealing what went into the design of 21046 Empire State Building.

Following a look into the LEGO Group’s Build to Give Christmas charity drive, Vice President of Corporate Responsibility Tim Brooks reveals all about LEGO Replay, the new initiative that will allow consumers to recycle bricks.

The review section casts an eye over the latest Architecture sets as well as 21320 Dinosaur Fossils and 10267 Gingerbread House, bringing fans some tips about which sets to pick up this shopping season. For more ideas, the Blocks Holiday Gift Guide highlights some of the best picks at different price points.

While the future is ever fascinating, so is the LEGO Group’s past – and this month’s history feature looks at the company in the 1970s, which proved to be a difficult time in Billund. This year also marks 30 years of LEGO Pirates, so to celebrate Blocks picks out 30 of the sets, elements and animals that made the theme so special.

This is just a taste of what it is within the pages of this month’s Blocks, with regular features including Technique, Retired Piece, Piece Perception, Month in MOCs, Top Ten, Brickpicker and plenty more besides.
