WM Brand WM204: Mr. Vampire's Lam Ching Ying Minifig


Mr. Vampire? 


Uhhh I really don't know the guy but I did a bit of research and found out he's a Chinese actor/character who's a vampire hunter. 


There he is in real life. See the resemblance? 

Interesting choice of characters, WM...

Lepin 15090: Chinatown Silk and Satin Store (Clone of XB01001)


Damn, Lepin. Is this a joke?? 



So, Lepin and Xingbao are basically the same right? Except Xingbao is actually more or less legit and the creators of the designs get compensated somehow. So why the hell is Lepin stealing from their own?? This is funny to a point but I can't help but feel bad for the designers of these MOCs.. 

Any thoughts? Think this is a brilliant business strategy from Lepin? Or is it too foul? Or something else? Share your thoughts below and don't forget to follow our Facebook for more updates

Lepin 02039: Remote Controlled Red Cargo Train Build


Should be 898 pieces.




I haven't tried any RC lego sets though I'd love one. Except there's no space at home.. 


Lepin 02012: Deep Sea Exploration Vessel


For a while I thought this was a GTA V bricks set.. Haha. 






I'll let the pictures do the talking.

Lepin 02004: Volcano Supply Helicopter


Seems to be in theme with this one






It's got some nice pieces and designs! But credit goes to TLG. :)

MR Brand MR268: Various Marvel Minifigs Including Zemo, Giant-Man, Crossbones, and More


These guys have been released by XINH already. 


Well I'll just share this with you guys. Set's not that interesting but it's the brand I'm interested in to be honest. 

Check out previews of MR's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Young Justice

MR Brand MR258: Young Justice Minifigs


Still don't know anything about this brand but here you go 


It's interesting though that the codes of the minifigs are in ML and not MR. 

ML115 - Superboy
ML116 - Robin? Nightwing?
ML117 - Aqualad
ML118 - Robin
ML119 - Miss Martian
ML120 - Kid Flash
ML121 - Superboy? 
ML122 - Artemis

Not sure how similar this is to the one SY made, but if you want this and SY is availble, then maybe it's better to get SY since SY is still one of the best, if not the best, bootlegger there. 

Any info about MR? ML? Share them below or through Facebook!

DTB DTB002: Kingpin's Henchmen MOC/Figbarf


Had to recycle those Red Hood torsos so I made these. 

 
Some generic heads. Well, two Wolverines and one Tony Stark. 


I could change the hands to flesh but kinda scared of running out of flesh hands + I think the purple helps identify them as Kingpin's henchmen. 


Just the back view. Nothing going on here. 


More or less matchy, right? Haha. From what I know, sometimes the Kingpin also has some Hand Ninjas as henchmen so my previous figbarf could also work!

WM Brand WM212: Winter Soldier with Chrome Arm Minifig


Apparently WM can also make chrome figs.. 


His design isn't the same as TLG's, not just in terms of the silver arm but in terms of print.

I'll maybe pick him up if he's not too expensive. Just because I'm curious really.

SW Brand SW501, SW777, SW811, SW823: Admiral Thrawn, Han Solo, and Other Star Wars Minifigs


Another new brand?? 


SW501: Luminara? Don't know who she is since Luminara is wearing black right? 


SW777: Luke Skywalker EPIV, in his Stormtrooper outfit. 


SW811: Admiral Thrawn from Star Wars Rebels



S2823: Han Solo EPVI, just after being released from carbon freeze. 

So another new brand huh? I bet these aren't the only ones to be released but I did spot them. 

I am not in any way affiliated with the seller in the pictures. I actually suggest you guys wait a bit before purchasing, for other sellers to have these items as well. :) 

Really glad the pictures aren't computer generated too!

EDIT: These are minifigs from POGO. Check them out here and here!

DTB DTB001: The Hand Ninjas MOC/Figbarf


I guess this is my first MOC/Figbarf. 



Swords and sheaths came from a SY Deadpool set, I have two sets because I made a mistake.



The design was really inspired by the all-red ninjas from the comics. They've had lots of costume variants but the all-red ones were the easiest to make given the pieces I have. 


I'll also try and make a Nobu variant based on Daredevil Netflix Season 1 and more Hand ninjas from Season 2! Hehe! 


The parts I used: Star Wars Imperial Guard + TLBM Red Hood. Under that dome thing, Red Hood sports a red-faced head and it looks great. I also will use Red Hood's torso for another MOC/Figbarf that I'll be sharing with you guys soon! 


Hand ninja vs another of my MOC/Figbarf collection, Shang-Chi! 


2 of the Defenders vs a small army of The Hand!

Think I can make some improvements? Or use other parts instead? Share your thoughts below and don't forget to like us on Facebook!

These ones aren't actually new but might as well share with you guys. 





Some of them look like they're from GoT? Others from LOTR? Some 300 too? So let's just say generic medieval stuff! Hahaha.

Hopefully they also come up with superhero accessories hehe. 

The newer sci-fi guns accessories was seen here
