Enlighten 110 Police Station Building Set


I think this Enlighten 110 Police Station building set is really good value for only $18.99 USD.  This is a big set with over 589 pieces.  The station has lots of accessories and about 5 mini figures.  There is a separate building that houses the jail.  You also get a helicopter, a police motorcycle trike, and a police van.  Normally, each of those vehicle building sets would run you about $4 to $5 each, so I gotta say this set is really inexpensive.

Here's the link.

Lepin 01008 Friends Rollercoaster Building Set


Ok, once in awhile, these kind of listings show up on Aliexpress and I get a big chuckle out of them. This new Lepin 01008 Friends Rollercoaster set isn't out yet, so that's why it must be so expensive.  I tried to see if any one of the 1124 pieces was plated in gold or not.  At $4,788 USD, that means each piece in the set costs about $4 each.  Well, at least you get free shipping, lol.

In case you are filthy rich, or just want to blow your money, here's the link to it

Sheng Yuan SH678 Hero Tower (aka Super Sized Avengers Towers ) Building Set


Today, I am going to stray off the path of looking for the cheapest sets on Aliexpress.  Instead I want to direct your attention to this extra large Avengers Tower that I found.  The logo of the set suggests that it is from the brand Sheng Yuan, but the set number deviates from it's past numbering method with SH678 (instead of SY678).

It is not clearly evident just how many pieces are in this set, nor how many Super Hero minifigures it comes with.  I wonder if this is a real set or just an artist rendition of a pre-order.  Anyways it's listed at a not so special price of $83.80 USD.

Here is the lone listing I found for this Giant sized Avengers Tower.

https://www.aliexpress.com/item/SN678-The-avengers-alliance-building-assault-iron-man-large-Bricks-blocks-plastic-Building-block-sets-educational/32758002798.html

At that price, I wonder if it is better to get 3 or 4 of the existing of the existing Lego bootleg Avengers Tower set and build it yourself.

Funny that while I was searching for the regular bootleg Avengers Tower, I discovered it's being knocked off by not one, not two but three different bootleg brands.  Here's one by Decool.



The Decool Avengers Tower is set number 7114, and has 511 pieces.  The price of the regular sized Lego bootleg Tower is about $27 USD.

The Decool listing can be found here.

https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Decool-511Pcs-Marvel-Super-Hero-Iron-Man-Attack-Avenger-Tower-Model-Building-Minifigure-Blocks-Brick-Toy/32731255571.html


Pictured above is the Avengers Tower, that first bootlegged Lego Attack on Avengers Tower 76038.   It's the Sheng Yuan set SY370.  It too is priced just under $27 USD, but for some reason this set has 563 pieces, I don't know why.

Here's the link to the Sheng Yuan set.

https://www.aliexpress.com/item/New-SY370-Avengers-Super-Hero-Iron-Man-Tony-Stark-Minifigure-Building-Blocks-Action-FiguresSet-Model-Bricks/32516925377.html


Not to be outdone, Lepin has also come out with it's own Avengers Tower, what?!  The Lepin Avengers Tower set 07016 has 544 pieces (different again!) and the lowest priced one I could find is approx $28 USD.   Crazy!

Anyways, if you want to load up on your Avengers Towers, you've got a lot of choice.

Sheng Yuan SY305 Iron Man Lab Building Set


I remember when the SY305 Iron Man lab was made by Sheng Yuan back in 2014.  It was a copy of a Lego idea that never got made.  I think it sold for about $25 USD, and now two years later, it's cheaper than ever at only $20.90 USD.   The lab comes with 4 different Iron Man armours and Tony Stark minifigure.  There are approx 503 pieces to this super heroes building set.

I like the diorama nature of this building set, but wish they had made it more modular in nature.  I don't think the Lego Avengers Tower had been produced yet, so I guess they did not think about integrating the 2 sets together.  It would have made a cool basement for the Tower.

Here's the listing for it.

Duo Le Pin DLP9032 DC Super Hero Minifigure Set


In my prior post, I highlighted an Aliexpress deal with super heroes on bicycles.  This time it will look at Batman and Superman on motorcycles!

This eight minifigure set has four different Batman and four different Superman figures.   For the price of $6.64 USD, that's already a pretty good price, but when you throw in four motorcycles and four mini aircraft, that's bonus.  I would probably buy this set just for the motor bikes themselves.   I'm not familiar with the brand Duo Le Pin, and don't have any of their building sets, so I can't comment on the quality of this item.  

Here's the link.

Pogo 8012 X-Men Minifigures and Pogo 8015 Bikes Sets


Here's a cool find on Aliexpress that I found today.  For the small amount of $8.45 USD, you can get both the Pogo 8012 X-Men Minifigure set AND the Pogo 8015 Bicycle sets.




Normally, it will cost you that amount for only one set or the other, but not both.  You get eight minifigures and eight bikes for a total of 16 pieces.  That works out to about 0.52 USD for each piece.
I reviewed the X-men minifigure set here.

And here's the link.

Enlighten 1111 Garbage Truck Building Set


A few posts back, I showed you the Enlighten 1110 Swat Police Truck Aliexpress deal.   Such a coincidence because now I found the Enlighten 1111 Garbage Truck for a good price too.  It's got 195 pieces with two garbage men minifigures and it's now priced at only $7.07 USD, even cheaper than the Swat Police Truck.   As I mentioned before, I have this set, the Ice cream Truck 1112 and the Tow Truck 1109.

I reviewed the Garbage Truck here and the Ice Cream truck here.

Here's the listing for it.

Enlighten 1110 Police Swat Truck Building Set


Here is today's Aliexpress deal.  It is the Police Swat Truck from Enlighten, set 1110.  It was released together with three other vehicle building sets, a Tow Truck (1109), a Garbage Truck (1111), and an Ice Cream Truck (1112) back in 2015.  I have the other three in my brick building set collection.

The excellent brick and clutch quality of the newer Enlighten sets is comparable to Lego.  The older Enlighten brick sets were not as good in my opinion.  This set comes with two minifigures and 190 pieces.  This Aliexpress store is selling this set for about one dollar cheaper than it's competitors at $7.98 USD.

I reviewed the Garbage Truck here and the Ice Cream truck here.

Here's the listing for it.

Xinh X0121 Harry Potter Minifigures



If you are a fan of the Harry Potter books and movies, you will like these.

Today's deal that I found is made by Xinh.  It has eight Harry Potter characters in it.  The set is X0121 and is selling for $4.79 USD by the lol toy store.

That works out to about 0.60 cents a mini figure.  A similar Lego one would probably cost you $3.00 USD.

Here's the link to the set:

Where to Find the Cheapest Lepin Modular Building Sets on Aliexpress


I gotta say, now is a wonderful time if you are a fan of Modular buildings.  In the short span of six months, we have seen every Lego modular copied, even the most famous Green Grocer.   If you are new to Lepin and worry that you have missed the boat on getting some cheap modular buildings, fear not, as I have curated a list of bootlegged modular buildings you can find on Aliexpress right now for under $60 USD delivered.

Let's take a look at what I found.

Lepin 15004 Fire Brigade



Here's the Lepin 15004 Fire Brigade set. It is a knock-off of the Lego 10197 set which is now retired. It has 2313 pieces and comes with a vintage fire truck and several minifigures.  On Aliexpress, it is selling for $58.35 USD shipped.  I have this set and you can find my review of it here.

https://www.aliexpress.com/item/2016-New-2313Pcs-Lepin-15004-City-Street-Creator-Fire-Brigade-Model-Building-Kits-Minifigure-Blocks-Bricks/32715797159.html

This seller has it even cheaper at $56.68 USD.

Lepin 15009 Pet Shop



This Lego set is still in production, but Lepin chose to copy it anyways. It has 2128 pieces and is selling on Aliexpress for $58.37 USD.  I bought this set, but haven't built it yet.


This seller has it cheaper at $57.12 USD.

Lepin 15002 Cafe Corner



The Lepin 15002 Cafe Corner was the first bootleg modular I ever bought.  Although there are some minor differences between this set and the original Lego 10182 set, the build was still fun.  The Lepin version has 2133 pieces and can be found for $57.94 USD.   I have set also and you can find my review of it here.

Lepin 15008 Green Grocer



Oh btw, I couldn't find a Lepin 15008 Green Grocer for under $60 USD, but it's not a lot more expensive at $61.25.   If you don't feel like paying over $1000 USD for the real Lego Green Grocer, you can get this set from the link below.

Anyways, if you want to check out whether you think the quality of the Lepin sets is any good, you can try it out for less than a night out for dinner.

Gudi 9214 Fire Helicopter Building Set


Today, I found another Gudi Fire Fighting set on sale on Aliexpress.  This one is the Rescue Chopper set 9214.  Looks like great play value as it comes with a helicopter, a small off-road vehicle and a storage area with flames coming out of it.  According to the listing it has 374 pieces and 3 firefighter minifigures  I think it's pretty cheap at $9.59 USD.

Here's the listing for it.

Sluban M38-B0366 Airplane Building Set


If you are looking for a large jet airplane for your building block collection, check out the Sluban M38-B0366 airplane set. It's a good size set with over 400 pieces which comes with the plane and two luggage carts.  It has seven minifigures, but in my assessment Sluban minifigs aren't compatible with Lego ones, so I would replace them with my own.  This set can be found on Aliexpress for only $16.97 USD.  A Lego plane set of this size would cost you a lot more.  The seller gives you a 5% discount if you buy 5 sets or more.   Good to know.

Here's where you can find it:

Gudi 9213 Fire Boat Building Set


Wow, here's another sweet deal I found on Aliexpress.  This Gudi 9213 Fire Boat building set is only $8.88 USD.  This is a good sized set with 315 pieces and three minifigures.  In fact, there's not one boat in this set but two.  The next cheapest price of this set is $15 USD, so this building set is half off it's already low price. If this was a Lego set, it would cost closer to $30 USD.

Get it now here:

LED Light Bricks - Unknown Brand



Since I featured the LED light bricks in my Hsanhe Fast Food Restaurant Modular review, I've had several inquiries about how they work and where to get them.


The LED light bricks are 2x3 studs in size.  They are transparent and depending which ones, you order are either bright white or multi-coloured.  The bricks are internally powered by a small watch battery, so I don't think you can use an external power source. I'm not sure if it's possible pry open the brick and attach your own connections.



On each brick there is a small hole which is used to turn the light brick on and off.  You will need a Lego technic axle part.  By inserting the axle into the brick and turning it left or right, you activate the light mechanism inside.  You simply attach the LED light brick where ever you want it and turn it on to illuminate your brick building or vehicle.


Here are some of the technic axles you could use to insert into the LED light brick.  Note that when you buy the LED brick, they don't give the axle or any instructions, so it took me a few minutes to figure it out when I bought the bricks.

Anyways, if you are looking for LED light bricks on Aliexpress, just search for LED bricks in the building blocks category of the Toys section.


If you buy only one brick it will cost you about just under $2 USD for it, but if you buy more, then the price comes down to under $1 USD each.  Here's a link.

Lepin 05004 Star Wars Poe's X-Wing Building Set


In my previous post, I showed you the QS08 88051 bootleg Star Wars set that was a poor imitation of Poe's X-Wing.  For one dollar more, you can get the 748 piece Lepin 05004 Poe's X-Wing Fighter that is a direct knock-off of Lego's set 75102.  This one is listed for sale at $22.55 USD at the Aliexpress store 1trust-mart2 Store.  The three minifigures (and one droid) in this Lepin set are not as good as the Lego ones I'm sad to say, but I'm happy to have this Lepin set in my collection.

Here's the link to Poe's X-Wing Fighter.

QS08 88051 Poe's X-wing Star Wars building set


At first glance, I thought Whoa, a new Star Wars model that is being bootlegged.  Certainly I have not seen an X-Wing in this colour scheme before and it does look cool in back and yellow, instead of the familiar black and orange.  But then I checked the brand and it is called QS08 which I've never heard of.  And a closer inspection of the pictures reveals something is not quite right.  There are 3 Clone trooper minifigures pictured and no sign of Poe, even though it's called Poe's X-wing.

When I looked at the brick design of this X-wing, I quickly realized that I have seen this set before.  This set has been made previously by another lesser known bootleg brand called Leyi.  It is actually the set pictured below Leyi Star Series, model 3813.





So now, if you compare them, you are basically paying double the price of the Leyi model, but with a different colour scheme.  The Leyi set has 316 pieces, yet the QS08 pieces which is essentially the same model has 465 pieces. That's quite a big difference, but I can't see how the QS08 set can be one third bigger.  If I had to buy a bootleg Lego Poe's X-wing, I would buy the Lepin 05004 model instead of the QS08 model.

What do you think about these two models?  Anyways I will let you decide if this is worth it or not.   The links to the two models available on Aliexpress are below.

Black X-wing $21.55 USD

Xinh Assorted Super Heroes Bootleg Mini Figures


Usually you are forced to buy bootleg minifigures by sets of six or eight figures to get a good price.  Inevitably you end up with figures you don't want or duplicates.  I found this store called Xinh store on Aliexpress that has a good assortment of Xinh brand minifigures for a nice price of only $0.49 to $0.59 per figure.  The good thing here is that you can buy these figures individually so you can pick and choose only the ones you want.

I see some Bat Villains, X-men, and Avengers minifigures available.
Here's the link to the set:

Decool 7105 Batman Tumbler Building Set


This Batman Tumbler batmobile building set has been out for awhile now, but I think this is the lowest price I have seen for it.  It has 325 pieces and being sold for $15.59 USD on Aliexpress store Huihui Bags Boutique shops.  It also comes with the Batman and Joker minifigures.

I have a number of batmobiles, but this version I don't have.  Personally, I think this tumbler is much bigger than minifig scale so I have it too large for my own liking. But hey, each to his/her own tastes.

Here's the link to the set:

Xinh X0119 Super Heroes Mini figures


It used to be that you could get a set of eight mini figures cheaply on Ebay, but not anymore.  They have been removing all the bootleg brick and mini figure listings, and the ones still there are now asking for more money.

This super heroes set of mini figures is made by Xinh.  It has various Flash characters, along with Atom, Bane and Cosmic Boy to name a few.  The set is X0119 and is selling for $4.55 USD by the lol toy store.  LOL.

That works out to only $0.57 cents a mini figure.  I picked up this set about a month or two ago and I paid a bit more, so if you don't have this set in your collection, now's a good time to get  it.

Here's the link to the set:

Gudi 9306 Police Truck Building Set


Here is another small set for those of you with a tight budget. It is a police truck by the Gudi brand, set number is 9306.  According to the item pictures, it has 84 pieces and is listed for the sale price of $3.60 USD on the Aliexpress store Hamtoys.  It looks like you only get one policeman minifigure with this set. An extra criminal minifigure would have been welcome.

This vehicle looks cool because it is a 4x4 pickup truck.  It would look awesome patrolling around my modular Lepin town.  I don't have any other Gudi brand bricks, so this will be a good purchase to see if the bricks are good or not.

Here's the link to the set:

Enlighten 1104 Steamroller Building Set


I always try to get a good price on my Lego bootleg bricks, but today I found a building set that is now even cheaper than when I bought mine.   It is the Enlighten brand Steamroller building set 1104.
You get a construction worker minifigure with this set. It is not a big set with only 102 pieces but it's a steal at $4.29 USD on Aliexpress Store Snails and Amay.

I like this set because it's not your typical bright yellow construction vehicle.  Plus the fact there's not a whole lot of Lego style steam rollers that are nice and small like this one.

Here's the link to the set:
