This is the XINGBAO [Review] XingBao XB-01003 – Zhong Hua Street: Yihong Whorehouse Real Reviews from our lovely customer nickname Jörg Hofmann at Germany.
I started the set last night. Unfortunately, I had to take a little freeze but I can already describe my first impressions.
A rough overview of the 63 bags. The packaging makes a good impression with its Xing Bao print and the clear and clean foil.
It is divided into 6 sections, the bags are labeled accordingly. The numbers are not immediately so well recognizable, that would be in need of improvement. In the photo, the bags 2-6 have been sorted accordingly.
The plate was really nice plan thanks to the flat box of the dealer. However, one saw immediately that it is too thick and the recesses below too small. Nevertheless, the hope that it would not budge germinated. Had missed getting in advance Lego plates.
I like the Gold Tone pretty well, it can fool me, but it looks better than the previous Lepin sets.
Really nice clear the parts and not scratched. This gives hope for clear discs on other Xingbao sets.
These plates are also of good quality and have no scratches. Is certainly advantageous if such a set is packed in many small bags.
The dark red I liked right away, harmonizes well with the golden parts.
Here I got the first printed parts to face, finally other picture motives than the usual Lego representatives.
Full of energy I started construction phase 1. Everything nicely clear, there is no further presorting necessary.
Hope dies last, but it dies. Unfortunately, here again, a corner bends up enormously. So it makes no sense, it is also not to assume that later lowers again as soon as the house is finished. I’ve seen it at the opera since I did not want to keep it anyway, I mercilessly built on the Lepin records and the record was totally bent to the end.
So first paused and ordered directly 5 Lego plates on Amazon. Thanks to the free same-day delivery, I hope to get started tonight.
Except for the building board, I am very pleased with the XingBao quality, almost thrilled. Lego should wake up slowly and rethink his pricing policy. Otherwise, they will eventually be overrun by the Chinese.
