While many of you are waiting for Lepin to release bootleg version of Lego 10234 Sydney Opera House, Lele had produced the knockoff version of its own under Lele 30002. Lele had joined Lepin in producing knockoff version of Lego Creator series. Instead of competing with Lepin on the Modular Buildings, Lele opted to target sets on famous building such as Tower Bridge, Sydney Opera House and the Big Ben.
Box art of Lele 30002 bootleg version of Lego 10234 Sydney Opera House.
Side view of Lele 30002. The iconic white shell of the opera house had glossy finishing, which is typical quality of the bootleg brand. Lego one could be less shiny.
Front view of the fake Sydney Opera House. Notice the studs had no “Lego” mark at all.
Back view of the fake Sydney Opera House.
In terms of bricks quality, Lele is not as good as Lepin. For this set, the bricks quality is still acceptable given the price tag. If you prefer to wait for Lepin version, you can order Lepin 17003 instead. Please note that the original is still available at Lego online store.
