Yile set list


Yile is new bricks manufacturer, who has issued some car-themed set recently.

I've tried to find their models to make a list of sets. Sets are places by numbers for now.
All the pictures are taken from AliExpress (all images belong to their owners). Some sets might be missing, because they either do not exist or are not sold at Aliexpress.
If you see any mistakes or can add something, do not hesitate to pm me.
Be aware that some of the pictures are cg (not real photos).

The list is gonna be updated.

Navigation tips:

Use browser text search to find set by code (usually ctrl + F).
Sets are plased in ascending numeration (Lego set numbers are in brakes). List goes first, then the list with pictures.


Sets:

Yile 001 (10248) Ferrari F40
Yile 002 (10242) MINI Cooper
Yile 003 (10252) Volkswagen Beetle

Review: Arkham Asylum (Lepin 07055)

Heyo, I've finally assembled Asylum several days ago, was going to do Lowrider review first, but decided to wait for Lowrider's spare parts from seller first.


I've bough this set for 78$. It had 39 packets so I had to sort details first. The assembly took me 3 days, about hour-two each day.
So when I finished I realized the tower doesn't fit in my shelf at all.


So I had to reassemble it to make it actually fit. Luckily I've got plenty spares left. So it gonna look like that. But I'll put it behind the Asylum anyway.


The wings of the building are connected to the main hall with connectors, but there is huge fail. Used connector are cross shaped from both sides and the building wings actually have round holes so connectores don't hold properly. And it's like this in the Lego instruction as well.



I had to dig my spare pile to find needed details, so it gonna look like that. This time it works properly. However I've decided not to use them at all to freely positioning parts of the building due to lack of place on my shelf.


So in the end it looks like that from the inside. Pretty detailed if you ask me (ow especially food station, yum pretzels). But honestly detailing could be done better, I mean playability of set suffers.


I had plenty of spares left after building - this pile includes leftovers from removing one floor of tower, still a lot of stuff, though I was missing 1*1 piece, which is pretty common and I had plenty of those.


Now to the more surprises, the set has 1 syringe in Dr. Quinzel's locker and I received 2 pads of different medical stuff that isn't used in the set. Even stethoscope. Okay why there's 2 pair of unused hairpieces? Well it's about minifigures quality.


Straigh to minifigures. Two words - not perfect. Batman and Robin are pretty ok, as they were in Batmobile set. Joker's hairpiece is wrong, Barbara's hairpiece is wrong (the ones from set are on previous photo) so I had to use ginger ponytail from my spare pile, Dr. Quinzel hairpiece is wrong, though close to the original, Aaron Cash has Supermas's hair actually, which is also wrong. 


Riddler has just a hat with no hair and as he has double face prints technically he's second two-face here, Ivy's hairpiece is wrong as well and Two-face's hair too. GCPD officers and Catwoman are surprisingly fine.


Most likely I'll leave positioning like that. Honestly, the police car looks unecessary in this set, its blue color stands out. As well as I removed the gym accessories and put the tower on the background.


The question to Lego as it's their design about the playability of this set. It's made cool, but it's also very tiny (despite big size in general). Look at those prison cells or the laundry - there's not much place in there to actually play with the set.


Or this metal detector. The stickers are glued on the sides so you can't actually play with that withought putting it out. Oh and Lepin has to improve glasses transparency.


So I've bought it for 78$ and the original costs 150$. Set has 1628 pieces, while original Lego Detective's office for example costs 160$ and has 2262 pieces or Parisian Restaurant (160$ as well) has 2469 pieces. Both are 65$ by Lepin. So I consider Asylum overpiced and I mean both Lego and Lepin versions. Worth only for fans.


I'm waiting for Lepins and Decools copies of old Asylum that were announced recently to be out. I haven't decided yet what brand I'll pick. But I certainly need that Asylum.


And for the last, Hello from Robin.


Thanks for reading till the end. Previous Batmobile review is here.

Review: The Batmobile (Lepin 07045)

Heyooo. Today I wanna review The Batmobile - Lepin 07045, copy of Lego 70905.
Got it for 33.99$ from AliExpress. I have to say packing was good and no details were damaged as well there were no missing pieces.

Don't forget that you can zoom pics by clicking on them.


I noticed that packets were numbered (never paid attention before, maybe that's new Lepin feature). This set had 16 packets, though it's not an assembling sequence, just the feature to check quantity, convenient for both sellers and buyers.
Assembly was easy (after sorting of course).
Don't pay attention to sets on the right, they are not related to this one, I'm just running out of shelf space. Btw green platform is not included as well.

In assembled state Batmobile can change wheels positions from lowrider to highrider.


The technic parts that are responsible for tansformation work very well. Nothing's loose which is perfect. Though wheels assembly process is very repetitive.


There are a lot of stickers in this set. Luckily seller stickered them into instruction which is smart. Cause usually stickers arrive in bad shape, but not this time.


There's a catapult here, sorta. When you rotate it cabin glass jumps off. Not my favourite part. Wheels are good and work fine as well.


The only problematic parts were those bat wings on the rear. One of cylinder's hole (that holds 1 of the wings) is little offset, so wings have different positions. And one of them is more loose than another. Not a big issue for me.


Minifigures. Lepin has improved minifigures comparing to previous sets I've ordered. Printing quality has increased, though still not as good as Lego. Capes are made of some sort thin material, not very durable.

Original Lego Robin's arms are half molded, means it's 2 colored mold, Lepin just uses 1 colored mold and paints it. New technology to develop, Lepin.

Man-Bat is cool and rare by the way. I doubt there are any sold separately or in minifigures' sets.


Now to the issues. It's about Kabuki twins, which are twins too when it comes to deffects. Their right arms don't have enough space to fit hands in so hands just hang out and are loose.


I need to cut the hand and glue them into arm, so it will look better, but won't be moving. Oh, or get Pogo Kabuki twins.


In general I'm very pleased with this set, Batmobile is solid and technic parts work well. I'm glad Lepin is improving minifigures and printing too. But they have to work on transparent parts to make them more clear.


Thanks for reading!
