Toys N Bricks

    A LEGO Community with coverage of LEGO Sales, News, MOCs and Reviews.

    The latest Newsweek LEGO magazine will officially be released on July 17 at This magazine was created in celebration of the 60th anniversary of the LEGO Brick and the 40th anniversary of the Minifigure.

    “We worked very closely with The LEGO Group to create this, and received exclusive interviews with LEGO designers and workers in the Billund factory, plus exclusive behind-the-scenes photos of the LEGO creation process and of the sets themselves – from classic sets like #928, Galaxy Explorer, to the latest branded ones such as Jurassic World.”

    Mini Review of the Magazine

    The magazine contains 100 pages and it starts off with various LEGO creations before the table of contents is introduced. It goes through the history of LEGO and how a LEGO Brick is manufactured (the very foundation of LEGO).

    Moving on, it talks about the minifigure, another important element in LEGO. Various LEGO set models and older sets are looked into including LEGO Ideas. There’s also a look into popular lines such as LEGO Architecture, LEGO Movie and LEGO Star Wars. Many of the sets that are looked into provides a brief description of the set.

    There’s more to the magazine then mentioned above. Overall, its a nice LEGO magazine to browse over when you have time. Thanks to Courtney for sending Toys N Bricks a complimentary digital copy for review.

    Wal-Mart Canada online currently has LEGO IDEAS NASA Apollo Saturn V on sale for $119.89 (reg.$149.86). They also got LEGO Pirates of the Carribbean Silent Mary down to $199.88 (reg.$249.86). Savings work out to be 20% off for both sets. These are some of the more harder to find sets and don’t get discounted that often so this is a great time to get the sets if you’ve been eyeing on them for a while. Thanks to forum member rexx for the news.

    There’s also many clearance deals happening right now online and in-stores so you may want to check it out as well. Thanks to forum member hatcher for the tip.
