Simon has a healthy pedigree in the LEGO world. Not only is he the man responsible for the Battle of Thermopylae (more commonly known as 300) layout featured in the pilot issue of Blocks, but he’s also a key member of the Brick To The Past team and one of a handful of enthusiasts who can brag to never having a dark age – LEGO has always been at the forefront of his interests. Raised on an envious diet of Blacktron and Classic Castle, it’s not hard to see why his interest has never waivered.

GRAHAM HANCOCK - Deputy Editor
Graham has been a LEGO fan since childhood and loves hearing the satisfying sound of bricks clicking together. His formative LEGO years were spent with Pirates and Castle. His modern collection centres on Star Wars and City, but there are plenty of other sets that end up on his shelves too. He also has a soft spot for the LEGOLAND theme parks, and given half a chance he’ll spend hours strolling around Miniland.
For the past few years he has shared his thoughts and insights on LEGO at his blog, All About Bricks. He’s also written for the popular Star Wars fan site, Jedi News.
Chris has been plugging away at the world of journalism for the past five years, and also works as a full-time sports editor for a growing news website.
Over the years he’s written about everything from hard news and lifestyle to film and technology, while keeping up with his lifelong addiction to LEGO.
Chris is particularly keen on the Star Wars and Super Heroes themes, but as long as it’s LEGO, it’s okay with him.

Daniel Konstanski - USA Editor
Daniel has been collecting and building LEGO since he was 3 years old and has never had a dark age. His childhood love of Space and Pirate has expanded in adulthood to a 1000+ set collection sampling from every corner of LEGO’s product catalogue along with a spare parts assortment of nearly half a million bricks for MOCing. He is a regular on the USA’s East Coast convention circuit with his wonderfully supportive wife and kids. Daniel’s childhood love of LEGO influenced him to pursue engineering as a career which serves as both his day job and funding source for acquiring more brick.
