But searching online I came across a Lego imitation set from China, called Lepin, which has used (or stolen) the build instructions and released it as a set.
The original Lego build:
The Chinese imitation:
At first I was tempted to buy it (it goes for 67 euro's, how fitting) but when I looked closer it doesn't look anywhere near a good as the original. The blue looks like a different colour, as well as the lighter grey parts. Those tyres look terrible and the original rear tyres in the Lego build turn out to be super rare, so replacing them won't be easy or cheap. I've aslo read bad stories about those fake bricks that won't even fit properly and that they deteriorate over time, which ofcourse doesn't happen with real Lego.
Why do you guys think of it?
