Lepin 01039 Friends Heartlake Hospital Building Set


Today's featured bootleg brick set is this knock-off of Lego's Friends Heartlake Hospital set 41318.  It's the latest from Lepin 01039 with 932 pieces.   On Aliexpress, the lowest price for this set is $40.39 USD which is less than half the price of Lego's $99.99 USD.

The Details


This set is comprised of a modern 3 storey hospital building with helicopter, ambulance and 3 Friends style minifigures.  I'm surprised that with a set this large there are only three minifigs.  This set would be a good candidate to turn into a modular style building.

Cogo 4143 City Tram and Waz 6853 Tanker Truck Building Sets



Hi and welcome back to aliexpress101.blogspot.com.  Today, I want to show you not one but two latest building set finds on Aliexpress.  The first is this cool city tram set by the Cogo brand.  The set number is 4143 and it has 545 pieces.   The price is $24.22 USD.  It looks like a knockoff of Lego set 8404.

The Details


Based on the illustration, there looks to be 4 minifigures that come with the set.  Two of them are sitting at the tram station, another one is crossing the street and the final one is riding on a white scooter.   Unfortunately, there doesn't appear to be any tracks as far as I can tell.   I've never seen this set before and it only seems to be sold by one Aliexpress store at the moment.

I've never bought any sets by Cogo before so I can't vouch for the brick and clutch quality.  At this point I'm going to hold of buying this set until I see more people selling it.  If you want to get this cool tram set, here's where you can find it.



Our second find today is from the same Aliexpress store called iToys World 2.  This tanker truck is from an unknown building block brand called Waz.  The set number is 6853 and it has 250 pieces.
It looks like a knockoff of Lego's 60016 Tanker truck set.  The price is just under $12 USD.   It looks to have one minifigure and a filling station.

This tanker truck would certainly look great in my Its Not Lego town, however being that this set is the one and only on Aliexpress, it makes me wary of buying it just yet.

If you do decide to buy either of these sets, please make a review and let us know about the quality of the sets.  I'm particularly interested to know about the tram set.

Enlighten 1130 City Town Hall Building Set


As I was checking out the newest block sets on Aliexpress, I found this one and only listing for this new mini modular set by the Enlighten brand of building blocks.  It's the 1130 City Town Hall building and it looks to be quite detailed.   It's priced at around $26 USD and has 742 pieces.
In this set you get a three storey building, a classic car and 4 minifigures.  There's even a giant flying horse decoration on the top floor.

The Details


The building itself is reminscient of the Enlighten Sunshine Hotel 1127 which I reviewed on my other blog bricksandfigs.blogspot.com.  Here's the link to the review in case you missed it:  http://bricksandfigs.blogspot.ca/2015/03/enlighten-1127-sunshine-hotel.html.  I think the two sets really compliment each other.

It would be really fun to MOC the town hall into a full modular.
I'm pretty sure that the interior of the building will be pretty sparse given that the depth of the building is only 6 to 8 studs deep.  Oh, I should mention, that this particular building looks to be designed by Enlighten, so it's not a Lego copy for those who have an issue with Lego bootlegs.




I like the colour scheme which uses tan coloured bricks with red windows, doors and roof tiles.  The classic car looks nice but not sure how many minifigs you can get inside it.  It has the old wagon wheel style tires.

Here's a closer look at the 4 minifigures you get with the Town Hall.  I'm guessing that either of the two minifigs on the bottom could be the mayor.  The two top minifigs are a female reporter and her camera man.  I guess they would be interviewing the mayor about the latest scandal.

I'm hoping more Aliexpress stores start selling this set so maybe in future the price will come down, but overall for the 742 pieces you get, the price is not too bad.
