My BootLegos

I love LEGO minifigures — especially those under the Super Heroes line and custom prints. I prefer the real deal (even the minifigs I customise are done with original LEGO parts) but I can’t deny how cool some of these LEGO knock-offs are. The quality and detail on some of these so-called bootlegos are actually pretty good. If I had to, I’d recommend Sheng Yuan, Lele and Decool as they’re almost as good as the real thing. Other Chinese brands’ quality are more of a hit-or-miss (like with every knock-off product).

And so, I shamefully yet proudly present the bootlegos I just couldn’t turn away from (so far).

I normally don’t condone knock-offs so if you ever come across these bootlegos, do what I do and google if those minifigs are/will be officially available by LEGO first. If not, I say go forth and buy ’em guilt-free! Here in Hong Kong you could get them as low as HKD10 (USD1.30) so they definitely wouldn’t put a dent in your wallet.

  1. I know how you feel! I also feel like you should support the real thing, but sometimes it is hard to resist a “bootlego” when LEGO itself does not offer the official thing. Great article!
