Lepin Review 03061:中国风 Mini Building Series

      1 Comment on Lepin Review 03061:中国风 Mini Building Series

I was quite attracted to the chinese styled buildings that is offered by several other brick brands companies like Lepin, XingBao, KaZi just to name a couple of the brands that comes to mind. So I decided to buy some off Taobao during the 11.11 event via ezbuy last year, and as most will know there was issues with the ezbuy and I finally received the items close to the year end of 2017.

This is the first of several chinese styled building reviews which i will be reviewing.

This Lepin 中国风 (Chinese Styled) series features 4 mini building 锦绣坊 (Jin Xiu Fang) which seems like a resting inn, 万客楼 (Wan Ke Lou) which is a chinese restaurant, 怡春苑 (Yi  Chun Yuan) which is a brothel and 弦乐坊 (Xian Yue Fang) which seems like a music school.

After thoughts:
The overall build was pretty easy to follow. The parts’ clutch power were not overly stiff or loose as compared to Lepin’s parts in the past. While it is a great improvement, but i would say the “squareness” of the 1×1 plate or tile still needs further refining. Although I had a missing piece but compare this to a set i got a couple of years back where there were missing pieces, wrong parts and wrong colours, i would say there was some improvements made to the quality control.

I am slightly disappointed as I thought the 4 sets can be connected into a street. But it turns out that each building is actually a standalone piece.

Hope you have enjoyed this. Thank you for reading!
