QS08 Star Wars Wannabe Sets


I spotted this set at AliExpress and I didn't know whether I should laugh or be disappointed. 



I don't think there is such a vehicle/base thing like that from Star Wars. The clones in this set feel very much deformed as well, though to be fair, a picture of a physical figure would be needed for final judgment. The gun of the phase 1 Clone Trooper got my attention though, that looks sleek. 




This design is even distancing itself away from Star Wars more. It doesn't look like anything from any show or movie out there, at least for me. Again, maybe some people would be interested for parts. As for the minifigs, just look at the pictures above and let them speak for themselves. Phew. 



Uh, why does the black clone trooper/stormtrooper not have a face?


Basically the same as what I said in the previous set. This one's got an old Han Solo though. Or maybe that's old Indiana Jones? We might never know. 




This one uses the same minifigs as one of the previous sets. On a different note, the vehicle actually looks nice. It seems to be a modified Star Wars walker. I'd like to see this in person some day. 



After a quick Google Images search for QS08, I get a glimpse of more of their self-designed Star Wars sets. Some of them could have some useful parts for those interested, but minifig wise, I don't think they're good buys. Though at least this brand steals less compared to the big names out their who almost 100% copy Lego's designs. 

In the end, I realized that I should laugh instead.

Picking these up for parts would be the only reason for getting them in my opinion, and even then, I'm not sure about the quality and I think that picking up SY or Lepin would be better.

  1. Lepin copies Lego, but uses glorious "STAR WNRS", QS08 doesn't copy Lego, but still Uses "Star Wars".
    I agree that those sets are poorly designed. I don't think there's much sense in doing random sets, that are hardly belong to SW Universe and use SW name on them.

    1. To be fair, they use "STARS WARS" with the S. I'm not sure on pricing but perhaps QS08 sells cheaper and thus are able to trick clueless parents into buying crap bootleg for their children! Haha

    2. Oops, I didn't see additional S.
      Costs not so much, but add a few bucks and you buy good Lepin set.
