HispaBrick Magazine 034 is Now Available.

The world has become a bit of a crazy place since the arrival of the pandemic. But some people seem to be getting more and more chances to explore their hobby, and spend a bit of time with their bricks. And it is in this setting that I have received notice the HispaBrick Magazine 034 has been released, and is mow available for download from https://www.hispabrickmagazine.com/downloads/

What can we expect this time?

With a bit of a delay… HispaBrick Magazine 034 is here! It took longer than usual because we have a new member on the team. She is a BFOD (Baby Fan Of Duplo) who prefers her father plays with her rather than allowing him to prepare the magazine for the whole AFOL community 🙂

The cover of this issue is very special. It is a tribute to the mother of Luigi Priori, one of our contributors, who passed away recently. This cover is a heartfelt tribute and a show of support to our friend.

During this time of confinement, we’re delighted to show you Antha’s models, and you can see how the Star Wars Boost Droid Orchestra was made. Although we can’t travel, we will do a virtual tour of the LEGO Store in Shanghai and relive the emotional moments of Christmas with a proposal by StuckInPlastic.

We also have our EV3 Programming tutorial, we’ll see another analysis of the Friends minidolls, and we’ll analyze a lot of sets from 2019, but providing extra information about the apps that control them. And of course, the number 034 of our comic strip, “Desmontados”.

And as we are in the time of being at home, we have a special offer for you: All issues of HispaBrick Magazine FREE! Of course, they always are, but it’s a good excuse to sail through 12 years of LEGO hobby if you haven’t done it yet.

Enjoy!

I always enjoy spending a bit of time reading through HispaBrick Magazine. Why not take a look (it’s free) and leave your thoughts below.

In the mean time, the #Ramblingherohabitat competition is still open, with another 2 weeks before entries close. Keep your pictures of minifigure heroes in habitats coming in – there is such great variety coming through. You can read all the details here.

In the mean time, stay safe, and until next time…

Hispabrick Magazine 032 Released

Hispabrick Magazine number 32 is now available, and as its release coincides with International Women’s Day, this is a special, themed issue.

I have had a chance to have a sneak peek at the magazine already: It’s not just about builders – but also the growth of fan events such as 2×4 day, experiencing one of the early Inside Tours and going on to hosting them, and being involved as a coach in the First LEGO League. It’s a great read, and remains free to download from the Hispabrick Magazine Website

From the Editors…

Today is International Women’s Day, and the HispaBrick Magazine team has worked hard to create a special themed issue to participate in this celebration. HispaBrick Magazine 032 celebrates the Female Fan of LEGO (FFOL) in many different ways. The theme for International Women’s Day 2019 is #BalanceForBetter. To promote this theme we have invited Regina Mateos Rodilla to write an editorial as well as an article about what being a fan of LEGO means to her. We have also included interviews with female builders like Sachiko Akinaga, Mariann Asunama, Alice Finch and Jessica Farrell. Karine Linder from Stuck in Plastic has provided us with some insights from photographers like @by_a.n.n.a and @lady_brick. We interviewed Tara Wike and Austin Carlson who work for LEGO on the collectible minifigures series, and Asha Seshan and Anika Brandsma talk about their passion for LEGO Robotics. Patricia Tsoiasue talks about 2×4 Day, and Evelyn gives us an insider look into how some kids live their LEGO passion. This and much more makes for another issue full of different and engaging LEGO-related content. To underscore this celebration, we have decided to make this a free issue (like all the previous issues), so come over and download it from our website at no cost whatsoever. Spread the word: it’s free!!

Until next time,

Play well
