It's confirmed. LEGO #5004590 Batpod by Decool.

To be honest i'm very afraid to log in this google and blog account.. i can't imagine how many unanswered email and comments after a month since my last log in >_<.

My excuse this time? My OnePlus screen shattered to million pieces and my replacement phone don't have LTE (lol). Oh wait, there's more.  I was laptopless for a few weeks. In the same month, i sent my macbook to Apple for repair because.. guess what? screen related problem too. :(. On top of that, they also make a diagnosis that the laptop battery need to be replaced :(. cost for all the repair? RM3,169 (about $782). That amount to repair 3 years old laptop is just insane. i could buy a new laptop with that price.. not macbook of course.


Luckily i bought AppleCare+ 3 years ago meaning the laptop is still under warranty, so the repair is FOC! 



They made a mistake with the warranty period because i send the unit just a few days before the warranty end but they come out with the diagnosis one day after the warranty end. Phew... $700 repairs FOC. I purchased the extended warranty for about $150. It was definitely worth it. I just hope this machine can last another 3 years.. aha.. Confession time: I'm a cheapskate ;p

Hey, I still have not made any paragraph related to LEGO >_<.. I miss typing and babbling in this blog. 

Before i upload tons of SY600 LEGO Deadpool pictures, i would like to ask you.. is this picture real? I'm going to upload post about SY600 LEGO Deadpool in my next post. really excited with this upcoming set... LEGO Batpod!


wait.. what? Seriously LEGO #5004590 Batpod? Only 1,000 set made worldwide. lol.. this set cost $192 (RM780) sourced from loose parts and the original with box cost at least $1,600 (RM6,486).



It is real. found this link on aliexpress. 



$23.85 for 338++ pieces set is kinda expensive to me. I expect the price will not exceed $20 when more seller have it. but still, $23.85 vs $192 set.. The imitation cost 12% of original set. (again with the numbers huh) you can do many other things with that excess of money.. (^_^)'. Now more people will be able to buy and play with this set.

Hey that's all for now. I gotta do something with those unread emails and comments. I definitely will read all of them and try my best to reply most of it but I would like to apologize in advance if I overlook them.

    1. Hello.
      Taobao in general is mostly for chinese buyers. Sellers there often don't ship products outside of China. You actually can make a deal with them, but in case of issues there will be no buyer protection like on Aliexpress.
      Aliexpress is for foreign buyers with included delivery fee and buyer protection. I recommend to use it insted.

  9. Hey, welcome back.
    I've searched Ali by keyword: "Decool 7115" and found several offerings with like 21 USD price.
    Bigger version of Tumbler is also sold, but the price terrifies me.

    Also Pogo has issued Classical Batman movies minifigs.

    1. Hi Joe. Use post calendar on the right - it's called Blog archive. The SW minifigs were reviewed in January 2016 and December 2015.
      As I remember the best choise was DOLL, because of price.

  28. 'Bootleg Super Heroes minifigs - worth it or not?' in the forums on Eurobricks is a great daily source of bootleg news.
    I do miss this site though..... Hope you are well
