Recently got into Cobi and their tanks! Managed to snag a Panzer III J that popped up on Amazon and he showed up yesterday. Was so excited to get it that I stayed up til 2 am to build it, haha.

Ain't the most accurate rendition of the Panzer III, but I love it and it looks great with the Tiger, especially since they're both Afrika Korps models!

Tiger 131 was my first Cobi set. Got it as a gift and it totally hooked me on Cobi's tanks. Funnily enough, the Tiger is also the only Cobi set where I've had a QC issue. The anti-stud side on the unique gun mantlet piece was cut at an angle, so when attached to the turret the piece was sitting all crooked. Managed to straighten the piece out by filing down the inside edges of the anti-stud side. Thought I'd have to glue the piece in, but even after getting filed down the part still had enough grip to stay in place, which was awesome.

Jagdpanther is probably my least favorite. I think it looks great and I like it, but it's really easy to dislodge the tiles used to make up its sides, so you have to be more careful with it.

Wanna pick up some Allied tanks, and I've got my eye on getting a Pershing next. I want to get a Sherman, but I've read negative things about the thin-type tracks they use for it so I'm trying to stick to tanks with the wide tracks. Also want a T-34, but the only readily available version I can find is the one with Polish markings and I'd prefer a Russian one.
>>
I love cobi tanks too, been collecting them since their big merkava tank. I find their tracks too proportionally wide for alot of ww2 tanks but I collect their post war tanks so its less of an issue. These tanks look great next to megabloks figures.

Id love to get some big ww2 heavy tanks too but the space to put them is becoming a serious issue.

The people selling it just buy chinkbricks and knockoff minifigs and repackage them at a tremendously inflated price.

They're currently selling a bunch of other KO figs on the various right-wing sites. I think it's a hilarious racket. Buy the figs for 50 cents each and resell them for $9.99 plus shipping. That wall set is like a dollar worth of Ali and probably another dollar for the package since they likely had it printed in bulk.

So I want to finally take a dip into the forbidden Bootlego lake, any recommended cheap military vehicles on AliExpress? Preferably unique designs rather than Cobi clones.

Your pic related winner bloks sets scales better to mega bloks figurines. All the larger, high detail bootlego tanks are this case. Kazi and Xingbao make especially great large scale vehicle models.

More minfig scaled stuff would come from gudi, enlighten, kazi, sembo, jie star and sluban.

Gudi is my personal favorite. Their bricks clutch even stronger than Lego which compensates for their tendency to skimp on structural integrity in their builds.their designs are very clean and I aleays imagined them to be closest to what a Lego city military subtheme would look like.

Enlighten has insane variety with as many fantasy themes as military ones. I only own some of their alt history ww2 stuff. Bricks had inconsistent clutch. Im hoping their newer stuff has improved; these clones have a scary tendency to radically improve within these few years. I recently saw a review for their new UN peacekeeping theme. Vehicles looked more megabloks scaled but brick quality wasnt brought up as an issue.

Kazi gets mentioned again because they have insanely huge variety in military sets. Unfortunately alot of ali sellers are too dumb to even properly label their products with the correct brand. They had a minifig scaled line of military stuff under their ubiquitous field army label but I cant fucking find it.

Sembo ive never tried but they cropped up with decent designs just as I stopped collecting minifig scale builds. They had a styker, osprey and pantsir set but their new line seems to be doing ww2.

Jie star reputedly has Lego tier brick quality but their designs used to be so childish. Their most recent line is however, charming chibi proportioned vehicles from both ww2 and modern day. Pic related for cuteness. Also note how none of them are properly tagged as jie star by any seller. Remeber to use these buzzwords to find your bootlego. Chinks love calling every military set ww2.

Sluban has been copying the korean oxford designs for the longest time. Out of the bootlego with acceptable quality, I considered them shitest tier. However they started to make original designs and even licensed stuff based on pacific rim and predator. Their apc and irquois from the predator line shows potential and indicates that brick quality has radically improved.

Personally I consider the large premium bootlego sets far superior in detail and impact. Costs for xingbao is like 60% of Legos prices. They are basically Lepins sister brand and command the highest premium of all bootlego. Kazi is the opposite with comparable quality to xingbao and regularly pumps out 1000+ parts sets for a mere $40. They havent made a big cool tank in ages sadly. You probably wont care for all of this as I am speaking as a mega bloks fan with hundreds of their sweet action figures.

Pic related shows based Gudi sets next to megabloks scaled builds. That abrams in the back is Kazis masterpiece.

Of course this is the tip of the iceberg. There are gazillions of other little bootlegos. I am also biased towards more practical looking designs so I must of missed some pbbg classics.

Panlos previously just made fuckhuge tanks that dwarfed even mega bloks figures but they are also doing an alt history ww2 type line now.

Woma also makes mediocre large scaled tanks but they hilariously have jack stone esque figures

Pricewise you can expect to get Gudi and Kazi for extremely cheap despite being two of the best bootlego brands. Sembo, sluban and enlighten should not cost much either. Always take the extra effort to find lower prices.

Jie star and xingbao might be too pricey for you.

At least you're getting shipping, seems a lot of aliexpress stores are currently withholding most or all shipping options from us Canadian buyers, in my experience anyway. Was checking on my cart as I finally have some surplus money and noticed one of my items was now in the hundreds of dollars, all of it for DHL shipping. The store wouldn't offer anything else to Canada, but switching to the US brought up all the other options. Freaking Canada Post just had to start striking again...

The usual, they want more money. i did get the pirate ship today, and the the police station. $60 Cdn for about 2000 pieces, not too shabby. The brand is Dragon Blok, never seen them before but the box suggests there's more to follow after this initial offering (there was also a house set and a girl-themed one I didn't look at). Pics will follow when I have enough spare time for building.

Xingbao's quality is very high. Bricks have very good clutch and durability. Plus, unlike lepin and some other brands, they actually commission their sets, so they pay the designer, unlike lepin.

Have you tried Walmart? Walmarts here have been selling boxes of Block Tech pieces, including specialty parts like those.

>>
>>7273990
Yeah, I'm pretty sure you hit the nail on its head. Block Tech doesn't appear at Walmarts or Dollar Trees in Burgerstan. It's really only found at other discount retailers (Dollar General, Family Dollar, Big Lots, recently Five Below, seasonally Aldi) for some weird reason. Although I"ve found small sets at Target stores on occasion, so I don't exactly understand the regional differences in distribution.

This is like asking, "Which is better: Star Trek or Star Wars?" There is going to be no objective answer to it.

Can't say, I don't have any Cobi.

And I don't think we'll get any consensus, between people liking different things and quality being not very consistent in the lower tiers.
>>
>>7282912
I haven't bought any Cobi in ages, but their quality is pretty good, and they offer many interesting parts like plates with studs on both sides or bricks with antistuds in place of studs, not to mention a wide array of interesting tile sizes and shapes. They generally seem to put a lot of emphasis on having the majority of pieces differ from Lego in some small way, too, for example some of their wedge pieces had no back side, and the equivalent of the 1x1 clip has a round base. Only real quality issue I remember is that many of the accessories would probably break easily if a kid played with them, mostly the barrels of the guns, which are sometimes very thin. Plus their focus on military stuff means the color selection sometimes isn't impressive. Also, their browns and greens don't match with any other brands too well, the brown pieces I have are somewhat close to that weird light brown Lego briefly used in Bionicle and some old Mega baseplates, but that's about it.

Enlighten's new theme, which appears to be very loosely based on Journey to the West. Haven't seen it on Ali yet but there are reviews on some chinese sites.

Here are the reviews I found, first one is the two small armybuilding sets, the second the pagoda.

>>7283887
Search for "Wukong", that's the theme's name and you generally can find Enlighten's older themes this way. Bear in mind the search results will be littered with DBZ figs even after this is out, though. I have no clue how much time will it take for it to reach aliexpress, the reviews are barely two-three weeks old.

In general most people wouldnt even give non lego brands a chance if it werent for them doing military shit that lego refuses to touch.

Dear /pbbg/ I could use some advice

I bought a bunch of random parts, and one of the lots is the wrong color.

I've bought from this store before. Slow as balls. The guy sets the package status to shipped, then only mails it out when I send a reminder. There's 9 days until aliexpress closes the order.

What would you do? Ask for the correct parts? Dispute? Maybe just call him a cunt in feedback and forget about it?
>>

Open a dispute, and say they sent you the wrong thing.

Is this still available? I can't find it

this looks amazing, especially the fact that it balances on a pole and there's a music box attached. I just wish you could pay a little extra to get the box included.
>>
>>7285577
I thought Ali was pretty good about refunding if there was a dispute?

>Is this still available? I can't find it
You can probably find someone who's reselling it. They were being shilled hard on conservative websites last month along with some other bootlego.

>What would you do?
Open a dispute and ask for a partial refund for whatever the wrong part of the order was worth. If you just asked the seller to ship the correct item then there's a risk that he'll just give you a fake tracking code, and by the time you realise he hasn't shipped anything you cannot open a dispute anymore.

Thanks anons

>>7285875
Yeah, I want the parts but I expect he'd do exactly that. Oh well, thanks, I filed a dispute, let's see what happens.
>>
>>7285911
You can always reorder the parts, at least then you have an order open and the possibility to dispute if needed. Though if the seller is always slow shipping the orders out then you should probably consider ordering from some other seller, if the item is available.

What do you know about Enlighten? These elves, ents and mecha figures look cool. Are they based on anything by lego?

Apparently LEGO will release Warcraft sets... they probably went ahead and already made their own.

Picked up Cobi's Sherman and I like it a lot! I'd heard a lot of bad things about the thinner tracks used for the Sherman, but they actually work pretty well. The links are a bit trickier to attach than the wide tracks, but it doesn't take long to get used to it. Didn't have any issues with the thinner links breaking that I'd seen other people report, though I did stress the plastic on one link while I was still figuring out the best method of attaching them (you get several extra track links though, as usual). Perhaps Cobi has revised the plastic on the thin track links to be more flexible and resistant to breakage, as the box indicated an August 2018 production date for my set.

I love the shaping of the hull, I think it looks fantastic, and I like how they simulated the suspension. The turret, however, looks a little too small and set too far back on the hull. The smallness of the turret is exacerbated by the oversized .50 cal on top but it still looks cool.

Cobi also included this laminated game card in the box (the other side is just a picture of the set). Rules and other cards are at cobigames.com, so that's a neat inclusion. Overall a really nice set!

>>7289884
did he also tell you there are alligators in the sewers?

Enlighten is one of the longest lived Chinese clone brands. Most parts have good clutch. I seem to remember somebody posting a mini-review of the mech when it was relatively new, and the verdict was that it was okay. It does require some partsforming.

>>7290007
Unfortunately this will never happen.

>>7290804
There're rumors going out.
>>
>>7290824
I doubt them to be true. Just curious, got a link? Otherwise I will look myself. I really want this to happen.

I ended up also ordering the castle cannon tank and I hope it's delivered right in time for holidays.

It's a good set if you can get it for cheap. It has its pros (included LED lights, the alternative builds) and cons (the rooftop pool). If you want I can make a full review.

cool thanks, do you know if anywhere sells just the figures. I just want the elves and the dwarves for my Lord of the Rings collection (I know there are already POGO brand LOTR figures but i wanted some other elves and dwarves for the other characters not in the sets or movies.
>>
>>7290540
Based Cobi posting. The Mega bloks one is a good set but this one is much better shaped and faithful looking. Gonna get any more?
