My Wish List of Fake Lego/Alternate Brick Sets - September 2017 Edition

Hello, today I was scouring Aliexpress and checking to see if there are any new brick sets available. Sometimes I will make a list of the sets that I'd like to buy so this month I thought I would publish my list on the blog.   Whether I get them or not is another story, I guess that would depend on the set price and my budget for the upcoming months. Here are the sets on my wishlist in no particular order.

Modular Buildings Theme

Lepin 15019 Assembly Square

I actually went looking for this set in Hong Kong last month however all the vendors were only selling 15019B set, which comes with the USB hub and LED lights, and not the 15019 set.  Also my shopping time was limited due to the two tropical cyclones Hato (level 10) and Pakhar (level 8) that hit while I was there.

Lepin 15017 Barnes and Noble Bookstore

I've had my eye on this non Lego Custom designed set for quite awhile, but I know that the price and duties cost would kill me due to the size of this set at 4616 pieces.  For now, I'll continue to drool over this set from afar.

Lepin 15034 MOC City Building

They don't really give this Custom building an official name on Aliexpress, so I just used the generic title that they have provided.  This new set still shows as a Presell on Aliexpress, which means it will be awhile before it gets shipped.  This is another non Lego set, and I think it looks pretty awesome.  Again it's a set that's over 4000 pieces, so I think the reality of me owning this building is pretty slim.

City Theme

Lepin 02034 Cargo Port

I just spotted this latest Lepin copy of Lego's Port set 7994 that was issued in 2007 I think.  This set has one of the largest ship hulls, I think it's nearly 23 inches long.  Not sure if this is still a Presell, so I will wait for a bit, but this one I really want.

Lepin 02038 Town Square

I saw this set when I was in Hong Kong, and now I'm regretting not buying it then. I think it was like only $25 USD!  I was so focused on looking for the Assembly Square set, that I overlooked the awesome deal I could have had on this one.  Sigh.  I guess I will have to wait and see if this one comes down in price again.  I really want the tram.

Star Wars Theme

Lepin 05054 U-Wing Fighter

I really want this set but I'm still sitting on my hands on this one.  I've seen the Lepin Poe and Resistance X-wing Fighter sets really come down in price recently, so I'm hoping this one will come down soon too.

Well, that's a few of the sets I would love to get if money was no issue.  How about you? What's on your wishlist?

Bye for now!


  1. The name of Lepin 15034 should be "Potter corner"

  2. I've personally been doing more of the car sets lately. Lepin has been great for finding out of production lego models without paying gouger's prices. The Lego Technic 4x4 Crawler is the most recent one built. I am thinking about getting into landmarks soon though as the Taj Mahal looks really awesome. Aliexpress has been a phenominal site for finding these kits.
