LELE 79211 STAR WART MILLENNIUM FALCON Review

Today I'll be reviewing the LELE 79211 Star Wart Millennium Falcon. No, it's not a spelling typo. Due to the copyright issue, LELE had to rename Star Wars to Star Wart. Same goes to LEPIN; they renamed it to Star Wnrs instead. I was suppose to get the LEPIN version but unfortunately the stock takes forever to come in.

I'm pretty sure all my readers knows about the famous Millennium Falcon. If you do not, refer to the picture below. It's the starship from the movie franchise, Star Wars.


Now, let's look at the packaging. Yes, this is the exact clone of the Lego 75105 Millennium Falcon.The font for the word "Star Wart" itself is a blatant copy of the original Star Wars. Refer picture below to compare both packaging.

The box is actually quite big; 22.5 in (W) x 15 in (H) x 3.5 in (D) and weighs about 2.8kg.

Original Lego 75105 Box

LELE Box (Back)

Now, let's look at the contents (refer picture below). The bricks are packed neatly in plastic bags BUT take note that the plastic bags are not labelled and the bricks in each plastic bag are grouped by size rather than assembling sequence unlike Lego. And yes, it is worse than finding a needle in a haystack. But you'll get used to it if you assemble a lot of bootleg Lego. 

Box Contents

So, how do you start? I suggest you gather as many small containers you can get hold off and sort the bricks like me. Usually I'll dump all the smaller parts into the containers. Those larger ones I'll dump it into the cardboard box.

Box Contents (after sorting)

Warning! Please check the brick colors carefully before assembling. The brick colors in the manual might be confusing at times especially the dark bluish gray, light bluish gray and tan. I made a mistake with one of the colors and it was impossible for me to reverse the process without dismantling everything. But luckily I had another spare brick to replace it.

Okay, let's start assembling! Picture heavy.









Voila! It is completed! Took me more than 6 hours to complete it because I spent most of the times looking for bricks, More pictures from different angles.














So, what's the verdict? I'll rate this set 9 out of 10. This set would have gotten 10 out of 10 if the colors on the manual were clearer and the bricks packaging were...better. I would have save a lot of time if the bricks packaging were done nicely like Lego. Not a big issue here...actually I'm kinda enjoyed myself more. The color of some bricks are a bit off especially the red...maybe it's just my eyesight. The mini figures looks better than Lepin.

I have created a 360 degrees view but I'm not sure you guys can see/use it or not. Check it out below.

  3. Hi mate,
    Thank you for the review.
    How is the clutch on this set?

    ReplyDelete
  4. Hi there,

    I'm not sure what the clutch refers to. You mean the joints? If you are talking about Technics clutches, I don't think there are any in this set. The X-Wing and Kylo's Command Shuttle has them though.

  5. Sorry, yes i was referring to how well these lele bricks fit together. Are there any loose parts etc.

    And having assembled both Lele & Lepin, which one is better quality in your opinion?

    Thanks :)

  6. Sadly I managed to assemble the LELE only. The LEPIN stocks have not arrived but based on reviews of friends who managed to get hold of LEPIN, the LEPIN bricks quality are better but the mini figs are horrible.

  7. Hi, how much are the star wars LELE 79211 and Decool F1 that you have bought from GMklang?

    ReplyDelete
  8. LELE 79211 is about RM 150 but I can't remember the Decool F1 price. I think the LELE 79211 drop to about RM 130-135 already.

  11. Hi how is the quality of the minifigs?

    ReplyDelete
  12. For a bootleg, they are quite good. The body parts are not as loose as LEPIN's; everything fits perfectly. Colors are good and not faded.

    1. Take note that I am just selling this part time so my office has nothing to do with toys so I can't give you my actual office address but I can give you the name of the building; it's called Kelana Mall. You need to let me know in advance if you want to meet me during office hours because I won't be in my office at times (client meeting, etc) My e-mail is zuyong@gmail.com

  16. Ah, understood - no worries. Will send you an email to make arrangements. Thanks!

    1. Bricks quality wise, I'll say LEPIN.

  18. Hello... I bought the exact same set as you. I was doing fine building it until I got to step 5 on pg 30 bk 2. I was missing two of the rounded gray pieces. Do you know if there is a way to contact lele?

    1. I don't think so. The only way is to go back to the person who sold you and pray he/she might have some spare parts or...get the original Lego parts as replacement. For small parts, it should be relatively cheap.

    1. There's an extra 52 pieces for the LELE version which I assumed the extra pieces are used for replacing those "unique" LEGO pieces which can't be molded by LELE. But for brick color-wise, you can refer to LEGO instructions if you are not sure.
