XINH Minifig Quality? Thoughts on this new set I spotted on Aliexpress.

XINH 0102




Well, the characters are interesting to be honest.

So there's Ant Man (Scott Lang Movie), Kingpin, Wasp, Yellowjacket (Movie), Falcon (Movie), Ant Man (Hank Pym Movie), Captain America (First Avenger Movie), Ultron.

BEFORE ANYTHING, these pictures look like computer generated ones so we can't really say if they're gonna be as good as the real thing.

The Ant Man figs look great, imitations of the lego ones. The Yellowjacket looks boring, especially since their's no backpack. I'd rather check out Sheng Yuan's. Also, SY will be releasing a Scott Lang Ant Man I think, though for the Hank Pym, this is the first and only bootleg brand as of now that I've seen.

That Kingpin minifig is horrible. Kingpin doesn't even have a mustache!! Also, the big fig from the Lego Marvel game would be better in my opinion.
 

Wasp looks interesting, but the face print looks too boring, like it doesn't compare to other Lego minifigs out there. Also, I believe Wasp doesn't have a ponytail and would more often than not have shorter hair.

Falcon minifig is nice in my opinion, but the head is a recycled part. This part is actually Powerman's head.


The Captain America minifig doesn't have any striking features, but it does imitate his WWII costume in the movies.

The Ultron is just an imitation of the other Lego Ultron minifigs.


Anyway, this isn't really a review, just a sneak peek I guess of these unique minifigs by XINH. Honestly makes me cringe when bootleg companies make crap custom minifigs, it's like they're wasting plastic! I mean, if SY and Decool can make nice custom minifigs, why can't the others? But that's not for me to judge anymore, all these companies have their own pros and cons.

And again, it's hard to truly judge as these pictures are not the live images of the figures themselves, though I think XINH is decent enough in making minifigs as seen from their Ghostbusters minifigs.

    1. Yah they don't work. I'll check out why this weekend hopefully :( anyway the figs don't look as nice as their computer generated pictures, but the fact that they're unique characters still make them interesting. Despite that, I'd still get SY's or Decool's take on those characters because XINH's printing/material looks off, sadly.

    2. Though generally I think it's hit or miss with XINH, I've seen their other minifigs and they look decent, if not great. Like their Ghostbusters and Star Wars ones, in fact I think so far they have the best Star Wars TFA minifigs.

  3. That's not supposed to be Kingpin. It's Egghead, from the Batman TV series. http://www.classictvtoys.com/images/products/detail/FTC_BatTV_S2_Egghead_Loose.jpg

    1. Ohhh that makes more sense! I didn't know about Egghead but yah they look way more similar than Kingpin! HAHA the store advertised Egghead as Kingpin that's why I was confused
