Bootleg Star Wars Rogue One Buildable Figures from KSZ Space Wars


KSZ is back at what it's known for. 


Well I honestly only know KSZ for their buildable figures. This one is Rogue One's Jyn Erso. Was never a fan of the human-faced buildable figures, especially compared to the ones with helmets who look way better. 


Now for Rogue One's Death Trooper. Hmmm, seems like a good addition to any buildable figures collector's collection. 

Now for who I think is very interesting, in terms of product design. K-2SO's figure just looks great. I think it captures his look in the film quite well, though looking a bit skinnier even though he's already very slim in the movie. 



A little modification here and there and some colors and I think we can make him a Sentinel from the X-Men universe. What do you think? 


For those who are unaware, KSZ has been around of some time now releasing buildable figures like Darth Vader above. I don't know how good the quality of these figures are compared to Lego but they aren't at all crap [looking at you, LeLe].

On a side note, it's interesting to see that KSZ used Space Wars as the name since SY already uses Space Wars as the name of their Star Wars bootlegs.. Could it be that SY also owns KSZ? Possibly but that's just an assumption. What do you guys think?

Glam Metal Batman and More Bootleg Lego Batman Minifigs from POGO


Even more Lego Batman stuff. 


Catman we saw from XINH already; this'll kill XINH's Catman since POGO seems to be better in terms of quality. 

I think I'll be getting Glam Metal Batman even though I don't buy DC. That just looks so epic. The others look great too. King Tut and Orca are just wow, will think about getting them for parts. The others a bit simple and expected so yeah. 

This Lego Batman movie is gonna be huge from the looks of all these new merchandise. 

Thanks again to our Facebook follower, Abigail, for this information! Again, feel free to share more things with me through Facebook!

Bootleg Lego Star Wars Minifigs from Clone Wars, Prequel, and Original Trilogy by POGO


More stuff from POGO. 


I don't know PG-698. But, with some uncertainty, chronologically it should be Luke in Episode V ending, Qui-Gon, I don't know, Asajj Ventress, Luminara, Han/Luke (Looks like Han but I know Han had a blue jacket from Episode V, a bounty hunter from Clone Wars, and a Jawa from well everywhere. 

Was honestly expecting a Leia minifig somewhere. RIP Carrie Fisher; you will be missed. 

Thanks to our Facebook follower, Abigail, for this information! Feel free to send me other stuff through Facebook as well to anyone with anything! :)

More Bootleg Lego Batman Minifig Variants from XINH


XINH's time for the spotlight


Some of these Batmen we've already seen, while the others are new. The Joker Batman looks slick. And the Catman and Fairy Batman are pretty interesting to me. 

Still hoping for more Marvel from the bootleggers though. :( 

Still, I'm glad XINH released this since I am aware that a lot of you collect Batman minifigs! 

Will you be picking this up? Or wait for POGO? Share your thoughts below and don't forget to like us on Facebook!

Napoleonic Soldier Minifigs from POGO


Forgive me if they're not Napoleonic.. But they seem to be. 


What's very confusing about this set is that 5 of them are yellow skinned while 3 are flesh.. Thoughts? 

Still, it's easy to customize them anyway but a bit of consistency from POGO wouldn't have hurt. Maybe they thought best of both worlds? But I don't think they did it well haha

Bootleg Lego Lightsabers, Guns, and Accessories


This store in AliExpress definitely caught my eye. They sell minifigs a lot sure, but the accessories really caught my attention. They're unbranded though but that's less of an issue compared to minifigs/bigger sets.


It is highly possible that Lego doesn't produce most of these accessories so having a bootleg Lego supply of these isn't too bad. Those lightsabers look so nice and I'm sure lots of customizers, especially custom Jedi/Sith makers will gladly enjoy this. 



These weapons are for the army builders. Or maybe one whole set of guns for your single The Punisher minifig? Deadpool? Who? Hehe. 

I am in no way advertising for this seller but I do know a lot of you guys buy from this seller. If any of you encounter the seller and receive crap items or get scammed, feel free to tell me and we'll get the news out! 

Also, I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND you guys do more research on these accessories and where to get them because there may be other sellers selling at cheaper prices / better policies! This post was really just about informing my customizer readers about such accessories being sold!

Modular Arcade Building from Lepin


This one is a unique modular set from Lepin. 


I don't know if Lego has an official set like this but Lego or not, this design is very interesting. I don't know how well it'll fit in with the other modular sets, but at least as a standalone it looks great! 

Hopefully we get pictures of the inside view soon; I'd wanna see some Lego arcade machines! 

Think this is a good addition to Lego towns or cities? Share your thoughts below! Don't forget to like us on Facebook!

UPDATE:
This may not be a modular set because Lepin copied it from Oxford, a Korean brand who is also behind Kre-O. Thanks to our Facebook follower, Matthew for this information! Check out the Korean set here!

Bootleg Tantive IV from Lepin Star Plan aka Lego Star Wars


Yes, it's the famous ship from Star Wars Episode IV.

No automatic alt text available.

I don't know this thing's scale size but it looks detailed enough to be actually good! Hoping to see more pictures soon! 

Not much else to say, but on a side note, Merry Christmas to you all! I hope you all receive lots of Lego/Bootlego gifts! Haha!

McDonalds Branch by Sembo Block


How is it 4 in 1? 


"S.D ORIGINALITY" I have no idea what that means but I doubt this is an original by Sembo Block. 

Still, quite an interesting set. Plus, it lights up! I honestly would get this set, if I had money, for the Ronald McDonald minifig. Beware Joker, a new clown is in town! Haha. 

Quality wise, I am 90% sure this will be a good one because if I'm correct, Sembo Block is the same as Sheng Yuan. We all know that Sheng Yuan is one of the best, if not the best, in terms of quality; it's just that they're really slow in releasing, but at least DLP [which they also own] has been releasing newer minifigs quicker and quicker recently. 

Will you be picking this up? Or will you wait for obese minifigs to be released first so they can be "fit in" the fast food-McDonalds theme? Haha Share your thoughts below! And don't forget to like us on Facebook!

This is where the 4-in-1 gimmick comes in. Thanks Anonymous from the comments for the tip!

X-Wing From Lepin's Star Plan


MUST HAVE. 






Do I need to say anything else? 

Share your thoughts below and don't forget to like us on Facebook!

Small Bootlego Haul from My Local Stores


Just a couple of sets and minifigs I missed out from before. Plus the new Ghost Rider one from SY. 


I was surprised that there weren't a lot of new stuff in my local stores. Especially from Lepin. I did see Lepin's Doc Ock set, Lepin's Spider-Man Bridge Battle set, SY's New Avengers Tower, and even Dargo's 2-in-1 Marvel + DC Minifigs. Though for the newer Harry Potter and LOTR sets I've been posting about, I saw nothing. That's a real surprising thing since the HP and LOTR sets were seen online for quite some time now while this SY Ghost Rider set I literally just saw a few days ago.. 

Also, even newer Star Wars sets were nowhere to be seen.. The newest one I saw was I think Lepin's Slave I set

Though there were a lot of new non-superhero sets that I also saw like the Apple Store [the box was way bigger than I expected] and the RV [also a bigger box than expected] from Sembo Block, and the Emerald Night train set and Taj Mahal set from Lepin. 

I was saddened to see that my local stores stopped selling POGO and XINH minifigs, though I do have a backup store somewhere else. Still need to pick up Clea and now that new Gwenpool one. Also still can't decide if I should pick up the Dr. Strange trio: Dr. Strange, Ancient One, and Baron Mordo from XINH.. what do you think? 

Share your thoughts below! Can't guarantee a review soon because of this busy holiday season, but I'll try, especially for the new Ghost Rider one! Don't forget to like us on Facebook for the quickest updates! 

Marvel's Gwenpool Minifig from New Brand?


Spotted this one online. 


No brand though, but I think she comes with other Deadpools that we've already seen. This one's unique though! 

I'm not sure if the character really uses a crossbow, though I'm sure she uses guns, but crossbow accessory isn't so bad. 

Again, no brand. Will this end up to be just the same as POGO? Like that Game of Thrones set of minifigs that weren't reported as POGO but then they actually were. (Unless POGO simply released their own)

EDIT:
One of the links below mention the brand as POGO while the other mentions the brand as TARKEE.. Won't be surprised if this one's from POGO but what is TARKEE? Hmm.

EDIT:
IT'S FROM DECOOL! Thanks to reddit user superspurs18 for the heads up! :)

More Lego Batman Bootlegs from Duo Le Pin


Very happy to see more work from Duo Le Pin. 


I'd say that Duo Le Pin is like the traditional Chinese bootleg toy maker. Always including unnecessary things, like I assume, that speedboat in the picture. Though it says "combined into a plane". Oh well, generic Chinese bootleggers.. 

Though don't let that generic fake toys label fool you, DLP has been very good at producing quality minifigs. Still waiting to get my hands on their new Spider-Man set. 

Well now they're doing the same for Batman. If I'm not mistaken, these minifigs come from the upcoming Lego Batman Movie. 

Do you think DLP can beat POGO's quality in terms of these minifigs that POGO already released? Share your thoughts below and don't forget to like us on Facebook!

Bootleg Minifigs of Lego Batman Movie by POGO


Lego Batman Movie just keeps releasing more and more stuff! 



POGO is quick as usual when it comes to minifigs. Not sure if official Lego released info about these guys already but I won't be surprised if POGO got them first before Lego. Just like Lepin. 

Chronologically, Joker, Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy, Batman, Robin, Joker, Catwoman, and Calendar Man? Though I am not 100% sure. The last two definitely caught my eye though! And I'm surprised the Robin minifig isn't the short kind! 

Anyway, that's all. Share your thoughts below and don't forget to like us on Facebook!

The Rebel Alliance's U-Wing as Seen in Rogue One by Lepin


I only recently saw Rogue One and I can say with confidence that this ship is badass. 


How badass is the Lego set? I don't know, but no matter how much badass the Lego one is, it'll be more or less the same as Lepin's.. as usual. 

For any Star Wars fan, I think this one is a must have. It just recently became an iconic starfighter in the Star Wars universe. I am also a huge Star Wars fan, but my wallet isn't when it comes to Lego sets so I focus on Marvel instead..

On a side note, Rogue One was definitely a great movie, Star Wars fan or not, but I'll have to disagree with people saying that it's the best Star Wars film; for me, any of the original trilogy films is better than Rogue One. 

What did you think about Rogue One? And more appropriately for the site, this U-Wing set? Share your thoughts below and don't forget to like us on Facebook!

Ghost Rider Minifig with Motorcyle Finally Released Alongside Spider-Man and Hobgoblin by Sheng Yuan


SY FINALLY DOING WORK!


Sheng Yuan has finally released the Ghost Rider motorcycle set. Yes, we've seen the Ghost Rider minifig from Dargo and the Hobgoblin from POGO, XINH, etc. but the motorcycle wasn't to be seen anywhere else. 

I was honestly surprised to see this set. I saw it from a local seller in my local FB buy and sell group. 

I'll be picking this one up for sure, will you? Share your thoughts below and don't forget to like us on Facebook!

Star Wars' R2-D2 Buildable Model from Lepin Star Plan


This one's an interesting one! 


I don't think I have to introduce this guy to you if you're a Star Wars fan. But to the others, well this is R2-D2, everyone's favorite astromech droid! 


Lepin's [, but really Lego's] take on R2-D2 this time is a buildable figure instead of the usual spaceship/mech on scale with minifigs. 


This one's not actually a playset, and you would know that because it's based on Lego's Ultimate Collector Series. That says it all, for collectors. 


Though that doesn't mean it can't have "play features" that make the figure do more, which makes it flexible for both kids and adults or players and collectors. 



Lepin actually copied the set from this specific one, Lego 10225. No wonder it was such a great design, and well I don't think Lepin does their own designs like Sheng Yuan.

POGO PG8036: LOTR Villains and Ghosts Bootleg Lego Minifigs


We were heard! 


Now we have some LOTR villains! I am honestly not sure who these guys are, especially the last three, (maybe the ghosts who [are not villains] and helped Aragorn in one of the movies?) but for sure those two are Uruk-Hai and the others being LOTR villains. 

Looks like an interesting set from POGO, share your thoughts below if you're gonna be adding these to your LOTR collection and don't forget to like us on Facebook!

Nick Knights by Sheng Yuan Released as Bootleg Nexo Knights


Sheng Yuan releases Nexo Knights bootleg!


Not really a fan of Nexo Knights but I can't say that they're not interesting. Great looking builds + great looking minifigs. We can use these guys as spare parts or well keep them. 

As I'm writing this and looking at the picture, I kinda more and more want this set haha. Knowing Sheng Yuan, the quality will be good for sure [well maybe 80% sure since they're still bootlegs]. 

Will you be willing to give Nick Knights a chance for being a new collection? Or simply skip them? Share your thoughts below and don't forget to like us on Facebook!

Non-Lego Bootleg Pokemon by Sheng Yuan?


Sheng Yuan recently released a seemingly non-Lego set. 

 

Though that is easily disproved once you see the inside of the pokeball which contains Lego studs. 


Pikachu with a purple pokeball.


Clefairy with a blue pokeball. 


Bulbasaur with an inverted normal pokeball.



Gengar with an inverted pokeball, but this one seems more orange than red. 

Honestly, these figures just look horrible. It's really a surprise to me since I know, and lots of others do to, that Sheng Yuan's one of those bootleggers who actually make real good quality bootlego. Oh well, maybe Chinese kids really like these things. 

Do you think it's worth your money to get these especially if you're Pokemon fans? Share your thoughts below and don't forget to like us on Facebook!



More New Bootleg Lego Technic Sets from Lepin Technician


Lepin outs new Technic sets. Okay, I am honestly not sure how new these sets are but no harm done if I share them anyway. Although I am certain that these are copies of Lego Technic sets for 2017!


This one is copied from Lego's 42602-1 Container Yard


This one is copied from Lego's 42064-1 Ocean Explorer,


This one is copied from Lego's 42063-1 BMW R1200 GS Adventure


This one is copied from Lego's 42065-1 RC Tracked Racer. Perhaps the most interesting one because it comes with a remote control!

This one is copied from Lego's 42066-1 Air Race Jet. Another Avenjet anyone? Lol. 

I'm not really a Technic fan but perhaps some of you are, so I might as well share what I found! Be careful though because I've read about some bad Lepin Technic sets before; I'd suggest you read through reviews before picking some of them up especially if they're expensive!

Daiagon Alley from Lego Harry Potter is Released by Lepin


Good news for Potter fans! 



Small look at the upcoming Lepin set, Daiagon Alley from the Harry Potter franchise. 

Lots of minifigures + the buildings looks interesting enough. Oh and whay kind of fig is Hagrid? hmm. A must get if you're a Harry Potter fan. Good job, as usual, Lepin. But we can only 100% say that once we actually see the set itself, as usual haha.

Bootleg Lego Star Wars AT-ST Walkers by Lepin Star Plan


Another great release from Lepin. 


Okay, honestly I didn't want to say great because despite the usual great quality bricks and builds we get, there are times when we get disappointed just like when they released the weirdly colored Slave I. 


Maybe this one will be better though since it's generally just a grey build. 

For those unfamiliar, these are the walkers they used in Episode VI. Chewbacca and a couple of Ewoks actually stole one of these as well. So far I'm loving the details on the pictures, but I'm sure Lego deserves the credit for that.

Bootleg Lego Mighty Micros Superheroes by XINH





Not really interested in these but some of you might be!



It seems to be a random set of DC and Marvel mighty micro minifigures. If you're not aware, Lego released some sets ago with these guys in their own respective small vehicles. Now, XINH released the minifigs as solos. I would've preferred newer molds and characters instead..
