In the package were 52 transparent bags with parts, a guide and a sheet of stickers, which unfortunately arrived a little twisted, but nothing you can not correct with a stack of books:

Review LEPIN 05020 Obi-Wan’s Jedi Interceptor – Compatible with LEGO 75135

ORIGINAL INFORMATION

  • Brand: LEPIN
  • Name: LEPIN 05020 Obi-Wan’s Jedi Interceptor
  • No.: 05020
  • Listing Date: 2018
  • Number of parts: 227
  • Ages: 10+

First impression:

All the stones were packed in a bag. But that is not a broken leg in the few parts.
At first glance, they looked amazingly beautiful.
The only thing that was noticeable was that the stones sound a bit different when they fall on the table. Somehow, they seem to be easier. Here and there were some scratches on the stones.
The stickers were quite thick compared to the originals.

Assembly & Instructions:

As the kit arrived in a bubble wrap, the instructions were a bit crumpled.
The construction was very easy by the hand.
All stones could be blocked very well.

Characters:

The figures were disassembled into individual parts. On the whole, you can not complain.
The characters look good and the pressure is very good.

Quality; missing & damaged parts:

Fortunately, there were no shortcomings, everything was there! No damaged parts, apart from the scratches and the slightly cloudy cockpit screen. Unfortunately, the launchers are virtually non-functional.
As already mentioned, the parts could be blocked very well.
Since I built the Jedi Interceptor after the MF, I even have to say that the parts of the Jedi Interceptor could be better blocked than those of the MF. But maybe that’s just because of the different parts and the big difference in size.

Conclusion:

All in all a nice model. The kit worked well together. Everything’s fine … I’m very satisfied.

Surely you could have bought the Jedi Interceptor also in the original. My first concern was the first experience with LEPIN. So I wanted to test a little model.

Now a few photos …

Review LEPIN 16014 Space Shuttle Expedition – Compatible with LEGO 10231 (Retired)

ORIGINAL INFORMATION

  • Brand: LEPIN
  • Name: Space Shuttle Expedition
  • No.: 16014
  • Listing Date: 2018
  • Number of parts: 1234
  • Ages: 16+

Why did I buy this set?
Of course, this set is also a set for people with space problems!

On a relatively small base plate, you get this relatively pretty part set up. In addition, that is sometimes a set with a relatively high degree of popularity. The x-spaceship from the Star Wars series does not make any impression on non-Lego-affine friends and acquaintances (yes, should it exist), but a Space Shuttle knows them all …

First impression:
Unpacked and first looked at relatively surprised!

Especially the large parts have a really nice surface on which I could not immediately discover any major quirks or scratches.

Since I’ve seen quite different sets … I have partially after I had touched the large parts with my fat fingers, the stones with a cloth wiped again!

Of course, I can not say if all sets are like my set, but here the quality of the stones is really great!
I then sorted all parts and distributed them on 3 sorting boxes and a tray.

Construction:

The setup went very fast from the hand, otherwise, I’m not really the speed-builder, but here you could almost see how the space shuttle grows. After my black phase (Tower of Orthanc & Tumbler) then WHITE stones are also a welcome change.

Of course, a good pre-sorting also helped …

I did not stop building time! The whole part is relatively simple, the manual really good and the few technical parts, such as suspension, have been installed quickly.

Something tricky the flaps have been from the shuttle, the stability is not soooo awesome and when opening and closing the flaps you have to see if all parts stay in place.

In the instructions, there is also at step 48 a kg. Error, there is 2 x kg. half bows indicated, but def. be big bows. These are also available, so no problem.

The construction of an external fuel tank and the two booster rockets were then, thanks to large parts, very fast.

The landing platform and the satellite (hidden in the shuttle) was then only a finger exercise at the end.

The finished set:

There’s the thing!


End the part is then on the launch pad! The spotlights would have to be replaced by real lights and then a bit more smoke and then you have Cape Canaveral for home! The countdown has started! As I said, on a relatively small footprint a relatively large set! The minifigures do the rest, very good quality!

Basic quality, errors, missing parts:
The quality of the stones from this set needs def. not to hide behind the original on Denmark. Basically good clamping force, no defective parts, no missing parts!


But I have one problem: the stickers! Unfortunately, the leaflet with the stickers did not make it to me unscathed. Unfortunately, the thing was kinked a couple of times and 2–3 stickers have come off. Therefore, I have not attached any stickers on the finished set. I’ll take a look at that again, maybe I’ll leave it that way too, I like it quite well even without a sticker!

I have about 30 small parts about … I’ll check again if I have not forgotten something …

Conclusion:
A very nice set, not only to put it on the shelf, as a playset, the thing sure makes a slim foot!

Of course, the set is not the most sophisticated set, by construction, but it was fun and that’s what matters in the end. I’ll give you 8 out of 10 points. There is a slight point deduction for the flaps to the load compartment, also there I have to look again on occasion if I can possibly change something there. Basically, I give for this set a clear buy recommendation. Anyone who has something to do with space travel does not always want to have only Star Wars and also has space problems: STRIKE!

Review LEPIN 21001 Hobby Trains – Compatible LEGO 10183

ORIGINAL INFORMATION

  • Brand: LEPIN
  • Name: Hobby Trains
  • No.: 21011
  • Listing Date: 2018
  • Number of parts: 1130
  • Ages: 16+

As usual, when opening the package, a series of small bags appeared, so it was helpful to arrange in advance. Before I started, I superficially compared the instructions from Lepin with the initial instructions. Since I noticed no deviation, I used Lepin instructions.

The structure is completely smooth. Most things are fine and fit and you’re done after about 1.5 hours.

However, Lepin has not only added the required stones for the locomotive, but just like Lego a larger number of other stones to build various other models can. But this is probably a small mistake, since the base plates for the locomotives / wagons are too small.

What I noticed was that Lepin apparently was undecided which magnets to attach. There are on the one hand finished magnets that match the current Lego version, but then there are also various items with it, which could build the older, rotatable variant together. I saved that and used the finished ones.

Conclusion:
I can completely convince the overall result, in so far a clear buy recommendation. In order to improve the price-performance ratio, one should think of useful uses for the surplus stones.

The quality of the stones
Overall, I am very satisfied with the quality of Lepin stones – however, it can often be found different from Lego. For all the stones, I have the feeling that the used plastic is slightly softer than Lego

I also have a known issue that some hinges don’t mix well together; but that does not affect the structural integrity of the house. But beyond the hinges, I am 100% satisfied with the clamping force of the stone – even 1×1 stones are completely free from problems. The clamping strength is not as uniform as in Lego, but there is still a clear green color for all stones.

In addition to the missing parts, unfortunately, I have a broken 2×10 plate (deformed):

Review LEPIN 20003 Imperial Flagship – Compatible LEGO 42039

ORIGINAL INFORMATION

  • Brand: LEPIN
  • Name: 24Hours Race Car
  • No.: 20003
  • Listing Date: 2018
  • Number of parts: 1249
  • Ages: 11-16

Advantages: Replayability at altitude. The kit allows you not only to assemble the second set , but also to fantasize well – complete with imitation of a V8 piston engine, lots of gears, a simple switch (you can use it in the gearbox or for, for example, the PTO, or just to change the function on the drive), and, most importantly, a set of four coolest, huge, low-profile “rollers”. The second model is a SUV with extra optics hiding under the bumper. I immediately rebuilt this thing in the winch.
Disadvantages: There is no motor. This is a huge drawback for such a large and rather expensive set. However, with the help of a standard set of Power Functions, the functionality is seriously expanded – up to the backlight functions. And if you have a Lego kit with a remote control, then there is a video on the Internet to upgrade this kit. True, the speed should not wait – the model is huge and therefore slow and cumbersome, even when assembled on the most powerful engines.
Comment:
The roar of a powerful engine, the smell of burning rubber, crazy speed – this set is just made for racing. The problem is that it will be cramped to play in the apartment – the model is almost half a meter. But for those who collect the toy on the shelf, this set will be the decoration of the collection. It is also suitable for those who need details for assembling their own projects – however, keep in mind that the color of the body (and therefore most panels) is quite rare, so you may have difficulty in choosing the color.

As for the finally built model, it is simply gorgeous, completely copies the real model of the tractor, is worth its money. The model has huge dimensions and a huge number of functions: from opening the hood, under which the battery pack is hidden, to the automated rotation of the cab by 180 degrees. The steering function is very interesting. In addition to the rotation of the front wheels, it is possible to select the mode of rotation of all wheels in one direction, as well as the mode of rotation of the front axle to the right, and the rear axle to the left, which is a very interesting feature.
