Lego Superheroes Avengers - Bootleg version

This set caught my eyes because Sheng Yuan use non-lego image on the boxes. Superheroes in these set of 8 are: Black Widow, Hawkeye, Iron Man, Hulk, Falcon, Thor, Captain America, and Nick Fury.










they still include trading/game card with each figure


how they look like with accessories and weapon

without weapon and accessories. oh, look at hulk body - they put on some battle scar on the chest


all figure don't have dual face

For this set, Black Widow, Hawkeye, Iron Man, Captain America, and Nick Fury have different torso design compared to version of Lego. I'm interested to compare bootleg with lego side by side so let's focus on The Hulk, Falcon, and Thor.

IMHO, Sheng Yuan version of Hulk is very unique. He look like the normal big size hulk but look at his part here. Sheng Yuan make the head and hairpiece detachable.  




and these are pictures that i compare with original hulk and hulk by Lele

Too bad Decool don't have hulk in purple pant =(. But from these images, it can be conclude that both bootleg hulk have "shinier" green body than original Lego. Sheng Yuan's Hulk also has additional battle scar on the chest and abdomen, and some at the back but hard to see with my cheap camera. haha.. They all look almost the same, but have closer look on Sheng Yuan's Hulk (right) - the gap between hair and his back.

For the other two figure, also from 76018 - Hulk Lab Smash, i will have the original lego on the right and Sheng Yuan on left.



no dual face on Sheng Yuan's version

Headpiece of Sheng Yuan's version has quality issue

they look almost the same but original lego has darker colour. If you zoom in closer, you may find "lego" word carved on it.

 I never like this version of beard-less Thor =(


Sheng Yuan's Thor don't have dual face

    1. Hi there. So far all Lele, Decool and Sheng Yuan already release their imitation version of Black widow.

      Lele's - http://mybrickstore.blogspot.com/2014/03/fake-lego-hulk-both-purple-and-tan.html
      Decool's - http://mybrickstore.blogspot.com/2014/06/lego-sdcc-phoenix-by-decool.html
      Sheng Yuan - this page

      Lele and Decool has the same design and pattern with original lego while Sheng Yuan has different variant because she's from Avengers Assemble animation (different torso and diff colour hairpiece too).

      Lele versus Decool= Decool has better print quality on the torso and the head piece also has dual face (just like original lego).

      So IMHO, go for Decool =).

  6. Thanks for the info on Black Widow. I'll go with your advice! I think I bought a legit torso off bricklink so I might mix and match.

  8. Which one would you say is the best version of Hulk? I personally prefer the purple pants and usually buy SY for the quality, but wanted to hear your opinion

    1. Until now there are 3 variant of official lego hulk (big fig).

      [img]http://i.imgur.com/6jPNydY.png[/img]
      Hulk - Dark Tan Pants (released in 2012)
      Hulk - Dark Purple Pants (released in 2014)
      Hulk - Dark Purple Pants with Dark Red Pattern (AOU) (released in 2015)

      for AOU variant that has been copied so far, the main difference that these china brand still could not imitate correctly is the pants pattern.

      (lego figure on right)

      Referring to the AOU movie, hulk does not wear torn pants. Hence, Lego's figure is more accurate.

      Until now, SY, Decool or Lele still using torn pants design for this hulk :(.

    2. anyway my fav brand is SY because they can issue a figure with great print quality and consistency.

    3. I see, thanks for the input! just getting into this and don't really know what to look for

  9. SY turned out dissapointing: I got three minifigs, Hulk from the first AOU set, Loki and Green Arrow. Hulk had some printing errors (small purple stains in a hand and in the chest) and a plastic flaw in the arms (can post pictures if you want), whils Green Arrow had some flaws in the plastic on both sides of the hood...only loki seemed prettt muxh flawless.
    I'm thinking of giving Lele or Dio Le Pin (or somethinf like that xD) and chance, since I'm having trouble finding Decool around here

    1. This is one reason why these stuff will never beat the original, they are not consistent and not reliable, right?

      sometimes I feel rather pointless to make comparisons with the original figure because the quality of imitation that I receive will not be the same as the figure that someone else will get. quality that these china brand offer is not consistent. =(.

      Im so sorry to hear about your experience. I hope I did not give any information that is incorrect and you made decision on such info. I also hope you get those figures at a very low price because if the price is expensive, better just get the original figure.

      anyway, have you tried removing the purple stains on the hulk using nail polish remover? i heard the trick works for some people =)

    2. I don`t think I can remove it `cause the plastic itself seems to be tinted, if it removes the purple part I`m afraid It`ll probably the green part as well...I will try to paint green arrow`s hood with one of my girlfriends nail polishs (sp?). We painted a Darth Vader`s lightsaber (LEBQ has just gray sticks with hilts instead of the proper "sabers") and did some modifications to Harley Quinn and it was fun, so this shouldn`t be too bad :P

      Don`t worry about it, your reviews are really helpful to know what to expect and which figures are and aren`t worth getting. The knockoffs are relatively cheap here, though unfortunately we don`t have access to official Legos (I live in Argentina) unless it`s the big sets, and I`m mostly just interested in the minifigs really.

      It`s fair to say that those 2 are the only bootlegs that gave me any trouble, as Loki, Galactus, a Lele Joker and some Star Wars minifigs all were perfect and look really really good, so I guess it`s really just a matter of luck, I may even get another Hulk and Green Arrow if I find some withouth imperfections =)
