POGO PG1034-PG1041: Various Police and Military Minifigs Preview

So this is where the other cops came from. 


If POGO still messes up the minifigs from this set, then I don't know anymore...

I almost bought a Lele minifig with the same design as PG1036's, good thing I didn't. It's for an upcoming MOC so stay tuned!

These are some pretty good looking designs though, let's just hope POGO quality control has improved.

LOHO SX1001: Star Change King Kong aka Transformers Mechs Preview

Ohhh so this is LOHO brand, I've seen that logo before!


SX1001-1 : Looks like Optimus Prime
SX1001-2 : Looks like Bumblebee

SX1001-3 : Looks like Ironhide
SX1001-4 : Looks like Jazz


The set's name is hilarious, but at least the builds look interesting. I'm still gonna say the 4th one is Jazz and not Megatron though. If you guys think it's someone else, or Megatron, please do tell me!

In terms of quality, we'll have to wait and see. Although I think I've seen LOHO release some mini Iron Man Hulkbusters/mechs before.

The police hat will work better for my WIP MOC hehehe.


They seem to be policemen from China though based on the uniform, if that matters.

So they're most likely related to these guys. They're zombies from Mr. Vampire, right?

Duo Le Pin DLP505B: Comics Black Panther Minifig Review

Mech won't be reviewed though.


Would've loved it except...

..the torso printing wasn't aligned to the center.. 

Other than the horrible print alignment, which I have also seen from previous DLP Spider-Man minifigs, the quality is great. SY level quality, in terms of printing (sharpness, colors, etc.) and plastic; that's only normal because SY=DLP anyway.
Not a fan of the white lines on T'Challa's face though, but it gets covered anyway. You can also choose to use a yellow head inside to show yellow eyes for Black Panther, (but it's not that noticeable unless you really look at it closely with goot lighting).

They bothered to add a back design despite the cape and I think that's great because Black Panther often times removes his cape.

With the cape up the unaligned torso print is even more noticeable.

Those are the parts for the mech/robot. It's really more of a robot than a mech because Black Panther doesn't "pilot" the mech; the mech comes with his own helmet, not a cockpit of some sorts.

Why am I not reviewing the mech?
The box came with no instructions. I got it from another local collector and he sold it to me sealed, so it's not his fault. + I don't see the point in stealing an instruction manual hardcopy when you can take pictures.. Hahaha. This is DLP's fault OR where my seller's seller. Haha

Lepin 15035: Modular Wine Bar and Construction Site Preview

!EDIT!
This came from a LEPIN competition apparently!
If anyone knows who made these, let us know so we can properly credit him/her.

This is one of Lepin's shameless acts but the set looks great and I'm sure people will enjoy it when they buy it.

!EDIT!
"[T]his MOC was created by jaydisson for a LEPIN competition with the aim of distributing domestic (china) sets. The topic of the competition was Tycoon City New York"
I guess that's great! Thanks to Anna for this information!
