The innovators behind the new City Missions sets reveal how they developed this exciting new concept that replaces instructions with story – find out how this went from a blue-sky idea to something carefully tailored for children, illustrated with never-before-seen conceptual artwork.
That’s not the only interview this month, as outgoing LEGO House CEO Jesper Vilstrup sits down for an extended conversation.

Batman’s back in Blockstalgia, with a look back at the first ever wave of sets inspired by the Dark Knight from 2006. As well as commentary on modern classics, you’ll find an exclusive build – an updated version of 7780 The Batboat.
