I'm not sure what to say, except how the fuck has the once empire where the sun never set, managed to get in on Chinese bootlegging? Anyway, for those who don't mind lego knock-offs, these are for you.

But we put up with lots of douches on this forum, some of them are fine if you get to know them.

Those are barely even construction toys -- the studs don't serve any purpose that I can see other than holding the minifigs in place.

Other clone brands are just shitty. This is pathetic.
Just one random act of violence can brighten your day. Especially if it involves explosives.

There is some attempt at construction, but nothing note-worthy.

I remember reading the many Lego vs Clone-brand battles, I could imagine up gunned versions of the merlin storming over lego armies and dropping off squads of heavily armed Nega-Mutant commando's into the heart of battle, before being blown to pieces by AA fire.

Edit: Just noticed something weird, if you click the pictures you zoom in, and on the Rib and Jeep sets, some of the bricks look like they've got 'LEGO' printed on the studs? Anyone with better eyes confirm?

The only thing on that site so far I would even entertain owning would be the rib boat. Dump the guy, but the boat might be nice. :lol:

I would guess that they bought pre-existing guns from another line to save money on molding costs. Thus they did not really fit, but then again, do they look like they care? I bet not. :lol:

I seriously laughed out fucking loud at that set... especially when I zoomed in!

This whole product line is just a series of bad insults.

The tardis is screaming to be converted to normal Lego, just keeping the doors and some paint would work wonders on those daleks.

Yes, those say 'Lego' on them. I'm recognizing a lot of other Lego elements as well, like the steering wheel on that boat.

Very often the cheaper clone brands, especially in east Asia, will use Lego elements in the product photos because their own knockoff molds either look too crappy or don't fit together in the first place.

False advertising! Although that's the least of their crimes.
