Decool 0244-0249 LEGO Marvel Minifigures set of 6

When was your last purchase of knock off LEGO minifigures? I mean those set of 6 or set of 8 minifigures that come with few accessories and weapons that you can attach to it. I believe everyone already knows by now that these knock-off brands level up their game by imitating bigger Lego set (^_^)". These include discontinued set (such as modular Green Grocer), hard and exclusive to get Lego set (such as LEGO Batpod that I've reviewed in the last post) and also retired and ongoing UCS LEGO set (such as UCS Millennium Falcon / Death Star and UCS Tumbler). Scary huh?

Some search printscreen that I have made in aliexpress:







Since it is bigger set and have a lot more pieces, the price is also more expensive. But it's still very cheap compared to the original LEGO. On my calculations, the cost of this imitation set is approximately 1/4 of the original price for recent (not yet retired) set. But for retired set, these knock-off is a lifesaver. Take the UCS MF #10179 for example. It's between $3,000 to $7,000 on ebay but only $200 if you bought it on aliexpress. hahaha...




Okay, let's put aside those bigger set for now. I still have two set of Decool's minifigures that I have yet to share with you all. Let's have a look at Decool #0244-0249 in this post and #0250-0255 in the next post :)





These minifigures come in sealed packaging:



Hey look, the minifigure come with the hand and the arm is attached to the torso. This is good. Less pain to my fingers :)



Assembled minifigures with their accessories/weapons. I just noticed everyone in this set can fly.. with help from jetpack and thrusters of course :P



1. LEGO Space Captain America #0247


with jetpack at his back

2. LEGO Captain Marvel #0248




3. LEGO Hyperion #0249



Yeay another ironman figs! but hmm.. I already get Hammerhead from SY605, Gemini from SY179 and Silver Centurion from original LEGO or SY295




4. LEGO Scuba Iron Man/Deep Sea Suit/Hammerhead (Mark 47) #0244



5. LEGO Space Iron Man/Gemini (Mark 39) #0245



6. LEGO Iron Man Silver Centurion (Mark 33) #0246


This Mark 33 is a keeper. I love this one compared to SY's SY295 version. The black eye pattern is more LEGO lookalike.

    1. Hi @Jpoks. Can i ask some tips from you? I'm sure you know better than me about the latest offering from these china brand. I can see Lepin is ahead with bigger set but how about minifigures set? I didn't see much from SY and Decool. Do they still exist?

    2. Hello! Here in the Philippines Decool & SY has slowed down their minifigure production. Pogo bootlegs are like hotcakes here and 30% higher price than other brands. Xingh & Lele has level up in their quality. There are also new players like Elephant, Letai,..... - Jpoks

    3. Xinh and pogo are the best ones now. They launched a lot of X-Men and other figures that Lego never going to put on the market.
      And even if I didn't like the movie, I loved their Suicide Squad minifigures!

  3. If attaching the hands is hurting your fingers, have you tried gripping a gun or bar with the loose hand, and using that to push the hand in?

    1. Hi @Kabson. that's actually a brilliant idea. It's simple but why i haven't thought about it (^_^)". Thanks :).

  4. What Lepin did in the past few months was an incredible feat. Cloning all Lego modulars, even the GBHQ for gods sake. I might get myself a brick bank if I could find it below RM200.

    1. O_o Just by looking at what LEPIN imitate give me goosebumps. I seriously thought they only imitate 3-4 retired modulars. Turn out they imitate more than 10 and even the latest The Disney Castle is no exception.

  5. You allready have those iron mans, but this are 100% lego like, comparate the hammerhead chestplate with SY one, or the dual faces print, or the body print (Gemini and hammerhead), or the neck-expose SY healmet.. Those are exactly lego Like.. You got an exelent pack! Where you get it?

    1. Hi @Gonza All. I agree with you. These figures look much better than SY. SY usually has weird face printed on their minifigs. ahaha..

      oh .. i got them from local shop near my house :)
