There has been a great disturbance in the Force. It’s a good time to be a Star Wars fan, as The Skywalker Saga has arrived to the delight of gamers around the world. As our review confirms, this title has been worth the wait.
Given how beloved the original LEGO Star Wars games are, it’s no surprise that TT Games has pulled out all the stops to make this new iteration a worthy successor. Three of the top creatives behind it reveal just what went into this ambitious entry in the long running series.
That’s not the only exciting, fresh LEGO Star Wars offering though, as there’s a new series of dioramas to collect. Purely targeted at the adult consumer, these scenes offer a different type of model than the theme has delivered before and we are introduced to them by the lead designers.
If Star Wars isn’t your thing, then you can go back to the mid-199Os in Blockstalgia, where we turn our attention to Launch Command -the first fully fledged realistic space subtheme. On the subject of time travel, you can read our review of the new Back to the Future DeLorean and hear from the designer who worked on it.
While that should be more than enough to whet your appetite, we have a show-stopping, sensational, inspirational, celebrational, muppetational finale to this welcome note. It’s a behind-the-curtain look at the design of The Muppets Collectible Mini figures series, illustrated with unprinted elements and never-before-seen development material.
Muppets, Back to the Future, Launch Command … it’s not just a good time to be a Star Wars fan -it’s a good time to be a LEGO fan too.
