You know, that toy that used to be made by the same company that now makes the Star Wars themed DIY design kits?
I decided recently to import some samples from China, because when the copyrights fell off the design of the amazing brick system of course hundreds of Asian factories came with their own box.
They employ a similar tactic of using the blocks next to each step to show how a portion of that step should be built.
Whether it's the wheel of the ship, or just how a few block should be arranged.
In this post I evaluate my personal experience with the kits of the three with a decent collection of boxes and relatively easy to find: In this review it is important to know that I have not bought any boxes of original LEGO (tm) past 2007 for myself to build, except the occasional board game.
This is mainly due to the overly designed and complex building blocks used these days, and indeed the last boxes I did buy, that prevent real creativity.
So I suspect this brand actually makes the minimum required number of different size bricks to make it's models.
I had planned on giving away all the end products, having someone in mind for this set as well, but I think I really king of want to keep it!Most parts go easily on and stick decently, but some have slight disfigurements that make them hard to apply. There are no big problems with building and it can be completed in a fairly straight forward manner, but at some points I had to wonder: "Would any kid under 16 have the finger strength to get everything on? I unfortunately forgot to take a picture of it, but on one of the sides the "Police" print was set too far to the left, making it an "olice" helicopter on that side.The fit to normal LEGO was acceptable, although the alignment is not optimal.I started out with building the KAZI set, of which I bought two because that meant outrageous discount in a trade-spectacular end of March.
Both boxes contain the same parts and extras, nothing left to chance there. What was fairly obvious when building this set is that there is limited quality control on the molding and printing equipment.
There are minor differences, and you can see the real brand has more experience in producing the parts, but even the skeleton with the treasure chest caught my eye, because it actually felt a bit rattly, without falling apart.
