Don't get confused with the blog name. I did register the blog with the intention to sell stuff but turn out i'm not good at business.lol
Just sharing, my obsession towards toys especially lego
Please do not hesitate to contact me if u wanna have talk about lego and other stuff =)
Okay.. this is it. I will watch Batman Vs Superman: Dawn of Justice in a few hours so I had to get this Kylo Ren Shuttle review out of my head. i'm not saying that movie has anything to do with this Lego set but I do not know why I'm stuck with this review. Took me 3 weeks to assemble it and another 2 weeks to write this. i just keep the photos in my laptop for complete 2 weeks. *sigh* time flies so fast.. and I do feel like a sloth ^_^.
I even forgot how much i paid for this set :(. Anyway, original LEGO set cost about $119.90 but this imitation cost only 1/3 of it.. roughly $41 with shipping (from aliexpress) .
The box is very big and i believe the size is the same with original LEGO.
Ouch! one of the bag has spilled. I just hope all the content is still in here.
18 bags of LEGO parts (including the ziplock with Kylo Ren's cape in it), 2 weapon rack and an instruction book
Here are some pictures of the progress:
Yikes! this 2x4 plate is covered in.. oily stuff. i hope it's not dangerous.
Let's continue with a few more "work in progress" pics

Even the weapons and accessories looks identical to the original LEGO set.
Long story short, here's the assembled set. it's huge.. and heavy too :). No missing pieces (luckily) and no loose parts. I love LEPIN's brick. It's hard to describe here but i like it. the feel, the color, and most importantly.. they stick really well.
Here's where you twist the mechanism by which the wings are raised and lowered for landing:
Grill pieces to represent slight stepping of the ramp
I forgot to take few more photos on tiny flaps underneath the wing but you can see it folded in pics above.
More space/ seating area at the back of the craft:
Spring-loaded shooters at both side. Unfortunately, just like #05003, one of the spring shooter is broken. It cannot hold the ammo. LEPIN really need to fix this part.
More pics of the individual minifigures:
LEGO parts in this set is superb. i'm just happy that there are no missing or loose parts in this set. I personally think minifigures in this set (except stormtrooper of course) are acceptable. The torso design is simple so there's not much detail to loose. About the stormtrooper, there's no other choice. you gotta replace him with another imitation >_<.
