Recommended Posts

It’s time for a new edition of the magazine for AFOLs. In this edition of HispaBrick Magazine® we continue our collaboration with Kockice, which brings us articles on LEGO® Architecture, MINDSTORMS and an interesting Minidolls vs. Minifigures.

From our visit to the LEGO® Fan Media Days en Billund we bring you our interview of LEGO® Friends designers Fenella Charity and Ricardo Silva and our visit to the pre-opening of the LEGO® House.

We have tutorials on taking pictures of LEGO® and programming LEGO® Boost, as well as building instructions from collaborating AFOLs.

Our TopMoc section is all about what can be done with digital building, we keep expanding on the MILS system and we have reviews of a number of new sets, including the 10260 - Downtown Diner.

We will also show you what our HispaBrick Magazine® Event 2017 from last December was like and there are many more articles.

We have also improved the PDF file itself. Starting with this issue you can easily get to each article clicking on the link in the index and we have included bookmarks and thumbnail pages to enhance your reading experience..

In addition…  we are nearing our anniversary! In 2018, HispaBrick Magazine® celebrates its 10th anniversary. In the month of May we will publish issue 030 with special contents and some surprises. Stay tuned and check out our social media on facebook.com/hispabrickmagazine and twitter.com/H_B_Magazine

You can download HispaBrick Magazine® free of charge in English, Spanish and Croatian, so get your copy now.

Looks good as usual.

However, I'm not sure I agree that minidolls are equal to minifigs this time around, when it comes to building custom avatars of yourself. The contest seems to ignore the massive selection of parts / prints available for minifigures compared to those for minidolls - eg. for torsos over 3500 compared to 177 for minidolls (according to BL); and for heads almost 2400 (not including modified heads) compared to 60. For example, if you want to make an avatar for a policeman (or policewoman) it cannot be done with minidolls as there is no police outfit. Plus when considering legs, it says there are only the basic styles (standard, short, skirt, Queen's skirt (plus there is the new one coming)) for minifigs but  completely ignores the fact that you can make brick built legs for minifigs, to make them appear like they are sitting down with knees. This is something not possible for minidolls.

I thought the article "Reversing the creative process" was very interesting! I still read not everything, though I learned some more about the MILS system.
