LEPIN TECHNICS 20001 Porsche 911 GTR3 RS Review


Apologies again for the long break from writing reviews. I'm still not well yet from my bad cough and the recent haze doesn't help much with the recovery.

The number of "unassembled" toys in my room has been increasing lately due to the break i.e. Green Grocer, Brick Bank, Cafe Corner, Ferris Wheel, Super Star Destroyer, HeliCarrier, Wall-E and many more. But I decided to build this baby - LEPIN TECHNICS 20001 Porsche 911 GTR3 RS, thanks to my 2 days annual leave clearance.

The LEPIN TECHNICS 20001 Porsche 911 GTR3 RS is the bootleg version of the LEGO 42056 Porsche 911 GTR3 RS. This set is based on the Porsche 911 GTR3 RS below.


Without further delay, I'll jump straight into the assembling process. Pictures below. (Warning! Picture heavy!)











And voila! It's done! Took me more than 2 days to complete. Now, let's review this set!

This set is insanely difficult to assemble and with LEPIN's bricks packaging, it doesn't help much. If you don't have patience, I suggest you don't get this set...seriously. 

Let's start with the bricks quality. Some of the bricks are rough and requires force to attach them. I suffered some minor blisters on my fingers because of that. The bricks fits in perfectly and there are no missing bricks. The tyres are okay, just that the rubber sometimes doesn't fit in the sports rim perfectly. The brick colors aren't as glossy as displayed on the box but that's expected. You are paying like...40% of the original price but still get the same assembling joy.

The mechanical parts works like how it should; from the gear box (reverse, neutral, drive) to the steering wheel to the drive shaft. 

I give it an overall rating of 9/10. It would have gotten a perfect score if the paint job was better and if the bricks were less "painful". 

What about the size? It's huge! It's freaking bigger than the UCS Tumbler! Refer to picture below.

    1. I have not received the UCS MF yet. Looking at the number of pieces, I might need at least a few days to complete it. Yes, I will review it as usual.
