    I also found a review of 2311 at https://kknews.cc/zh-sg/game/maaxz62.html with lots of photos. It is disappointing to see that they work with stickers to some extent, especially when it comes to shields, see https://i1.kknews.cc/large/213b00067b418014bc4f and https://i2.kknews.cc/large/213800039309ccefab85 . Remember, in their previous theme "Knights" of 2014 the shields were printed.

    1. Oh yes, as there are already several resellers at Taobao, the price is < 10 € or $ for these four sets.

      2311 and 2313 are available for 48 Yuan (~ 7 €/$) each, 2312 for 35 Yuan (~ 5 €/$), 2314 for 55 Yuan (~ 8 €/$). As soon as more resellers pop up prices might still fall a little, but I think it already gives a good impression where we are heading to.

    2. Woah that's a lot! Thanks for those! :D

  2. You're welcome :) Just noticed, there are already the first resellers at AliExpress as well.

    Two of the female elves show off lots of skin. Lego wouldn't do that I guess ;)

    1. Hopefully the printing is good... just realized, the leg printing on the knight from the review linked above is really poor https://i1.kknews.cc/large/2135000390a2cb931ca6

      The other minifigs / parts seem to be alright, but Enlighten will have to improve its quality, otherwise they won't be able to compete against the clone brands in the long run. E. g. the horses in 1501, the mold is a great idea, but they accept larger tolerances. The different parts of the horse (which have to be assembled manually when it comes to Enlighten) don't fit together as well as e. g. the horse in SY165. Which means, when changing the pose of the SY horse, everything is smooth. When changing the pose of the Enlighten horse, there's some squeaking. On one of the Enlighten horses the saddle piece also doesn't fit perfectly, with a very small gap remaining between saddle and back of the horse. Considering that Enlighten has been around for years and should have much more experience it is disappointing that some of the new clone brands (at least SY, more specifially, SY165 - my only experience ;) ) outperform Enlighten.

  5. And I just found another review, this time for 2317 at http://tieba.baidu.com/p/5137626916 . The armour piece for the horse IS PRINTED :D :D :D , you can see it on

    Funnily, this seems to be due to Enlighten relying on the old mold for both horse and horse armour - in contrast, the horse in e. g. 2311 is the new mold (poseable rear, molded forelock). Anyway :D

    There are lots of photos in that review, but it took me quite some time to load them all. To avoid this, I've uploaded them at Wetransfer (which is going to be available for two weeks I think) at https://we.tl/Wraf9BknNY . To have them in the "correct" order, sort by date. Have fun :D
