If you like to read LEGO related articles in a magazine format, you might want to check out HispaBrick Magazine. The magazine is written by members of the LEGO fan community in Spain, and published three times a year; April, August and December. It is available both in English and Spanish as a free download, with a printed version as an option. The 20th issue was just released at the beginning of this month. Below is a bit more information about the magazine in case you are interested. 🙂
From the magazine’s website: “HispaBrick Magazine started in 2008 as an initiative of some Spanish AFOLs in order to preserve the best MOCs and articles that were published in their community for ‘posterity’. In addition to the warm welcome from Spanish speaking AFOLs, it soon became clear that there was much interest from people who did not read that language. The second edition of the magazine already contained a number of articles in both Spanish and English and as of issue 003, HispaBrick Magazine has been published in two editions of identical content, one in Spanish and one in English. As the interest in the magazine has grown, so has the group of people who are directly involved in the project. What started out as a small local effort has transformed into a magazine with an international readership around which a community has grown.”
Each issue of HispaBrick Magazine is full of interesting articles and is over 100 pages long. Topics include reports on LEGO fan community related news and events, featured LEGO creations, LEGO set and LEGO related book reviews, tutorials, building instructions, inspirations, question and answer sessions with prominent LEGO fans as well as LEGO employees, and a lot more. For example, below is some information about the latest issue:
