Premium bootleg company Lepin have no morals not only do they continue to bootleg all the retail sets but now they are attacking the exclusive sets produced by LEGO. Now for those who think LEGO is expensive then this may be seen as an option but in my view it only damages the LEGO brand.
Customize Minifigures Intelligence have gotten hold of a set and have posted photos and a brief lowdown of the set, LEGO legal team are on the case but you can understand why LEGO try and keep leaks from happening as it gives the bootleg companies chance to rip off the LEGO designs. Problem is Lepin is improving their own quality so getting hard to tell the difference. Take a look at the photos
Here is what Customize Minifigures Intelligence said: “LEGO is not going to be happy about this. Lego 75827 Firehouse Headquarters had a knockoff version and it’s very well done! . First up, the box weighted almost 7 kg. Considering there are whopping 4600++ pieces in two white boxes, and 82 plastic bags. Lepin sorted the bricks based on the length and types into respective bags. So just put the parts into different containers and it would be easier to find them later. Second, the printing on the instruction manual needed improvement. Sometime it’s hard to figure out which colors when building in late hours with sore fingers and tiring eyes. Third, the minifigures had different hair pieces to the original. Printing on minifigures are quite detail though, especially the arm part. Apology to those who read on mobile phone for the large numbers of photos. You could get the set at Aliexpress”
