Top 10 LEGO Alternatives: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CUUeFZyn08g Responding to idiot fans of Lepin: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLywkmM7twcDotvdQPxSQkZ0dBhGtOH8Y5 LEGO Star Wars on Amazon: http://am-redirect.com/link.php?&keywords=LEGO%20star%20wars Free Bitcoin: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hZJn0icXLO8 I previously made a video giving 5 reasons why you shouldn’t buy Lepin which was highly controversial. Over 500 thumbs up AND 500 thumbs down! But, I’ve taken that video down. That video wasn’t meant to cause offence but I got a lot of negative comments about some of the reasons I gave. Some of the points I made were literally just things that my viewers have said to me that I repeated, and although I didn’t state them as facts or even say they were my opinion, some people got very angry. But I still want to tell you why I don’t buy Lepin, and so in this video I’m going to give you 5 reasons why I don’t buy Lepin. 5) They copy LEGO. Personally, it does not sit well with me morally to buy from a company that copies from another one. Sometimes, I use the word counterfeit, which doesn’t go down very well with some of you, so I won’t use that work. LEGO thinks it’s counterfeit, that’s why they launched a lawsuit in China against Lepin. But what do you think? Here’s the LEGO Ghostbusters firestation, here’s the Lepin Firestation, what do you think??? The bricks aren’t copyrighted but the artwork on the instructions and boxes are. LEGO pays a lot to the likes of Disney to make Star Wars themes sets. I can understand that it’s difficult to stop a company selling the same collection of bricks that can be used to build a certain model, but I think when the copying is this blatant, it needs to be stopped. 4) Following on from that, people often say that they don’t buy LEGO because it’s too expensive and that because Lepin is cheaper, it’s better. But one of the reasons Lepin is cheaper is that they don’t have to pay Disney and other companies for the licenses, they don’t have to pay to develop the designs, they literally just have to copy what LEGO have done. With that in mind, if everyone stopped buying LEGO and just bought Lepin, LEGO would go bankrupt and close. Along with LEGO, all the great designs would disappear, as Lepin don’t design anything. Is LEGO overpriced? Yeah, sometimes. But I don’t buy Lepin because I want to support the company that designed the sets. If you don’t want to spend the money on LEGO, then why not buy from some of the other LEGO compatible companies like the ones in the list I made that I’ll link to below. 3) LEGO is better made. LEGO bricks are accurate to 0.002 mm, thinner than a human hair. I’ve never had a LEGO brick that didn’t fit together exactly as it was supposed to. By contrast it’s common to get Lepin bricks that don’t fit snuggly together, or that won’t fit together at all, or even worse, just fall apart. Long Lepin plate bricks also have a tendency to bend or warp by themselves, something that LEGO just wouldn’t stand for. Also, the colour printing in LEGO instructions is first class, making it easier to identify the colour of the bricks you need for your build. 2) I prefer the LEGO experience. When you buy from Lego you get a nice box and instructions. When you buy from Lepin you often just get a bag of bricks. Nowadays you don’t always even get instructions as the customs in some countries are confiscating Lepin sets. Another controversial thing I’ve said before is that I’ve never had a brick missing from a LEGO set, whereas I know that Lepin sets are more likely to have missing pieces. It’s also nice to be able to go to my local supermarket and come home with a LEGO set instead of waiting at least a week, more likely two or more for a package to arrive from China. 1) Resale Value. LEGO holds its value really well. In fact, many sets soar in value when they’re discontinued. Lepin on the other hand is actually very difficult to sell. eBay remove Lepin listings, and you won’t find them on Amazon either. This means that you’re either going to have to hold on to Lepin forever, or throw them away or sell the bricks by themselves at a great financial loss - so while it might seem like a bargain in the short-term, you might find yourself losing out in the long run.
