The latest issue of Blocks is out and they’re crushing big on the new R2-D2 set – but what more could be in between the covers?
To mark May the Fourth Be With You – aka Star Wars day – the all-new R2-D2 set owns the cover and the review feature talks to roboteers Don Bies and Lee Towersey, who reveal what it’s like to bring the beeping and booping bot to the screen, and the LEGO Star Wars design team explains what went into designing the new helmet and Probe Droid sets.
In addition, the gang at Blocks look at the top ten LEGO Star Wars droids, share their opinions on the new Darth Vader and Biker Scout helmets and Imperial Probe Droid and talk to the Star Wars design team at LEGO and discover five things you might not know about the new sets, plus there’s a close-up look at an incredible custom Gladiator-class Star Destroyer.
If that’s not enough Blocks is giving away three LEGO Star Wars sets this month – 75308 R2-D2, 75302 Imperial Shuttle and 75306 Imperial Probe Droid!
