New Features Writer for Blocks, Monthly LEGO Magazine

Ahoy me hearties! You'll have to wait another week if you normally buy your copy of Blocks magazine in the shops, but Issue 8 has just landed in the office and is already on its way to subscribers! Feel left out having to wait? You can join them at www.blocksmag.com​.

This Thursday the latest issue of Blocks magazine hits newsstands in the UK, and is available for digital download worldwide.

All Change for the LEGO VIP Program?

Having some sort of VIP reward scheme is better than not having one. That’s pretty much a given, and most LEGO fans shopping through LEGO directly would agree.
