Review of Lepin 16007 Haunted House Fake of Lego 10228

This is a rewritten review of Lepin 16007 Haunted House after the original one was removed in facebook. Because this set was produced in the early days of Lepin, there were some missing pieces here and there. Lepin didn’t include two pieces of tan color bushes. Vampire’s wife had her hair pieces changed. The ghost shroud didn’t fit the minifigure well, leaving a gap at the shoulder. The glow in the dark effect didn’t last very long compared with the Lego ones. With skyrocketing price for the retired set, perhaps it’s not a bad idea to get the bootleg copy made by Lepin. You may order Lepin 16007 Haunted House from Aliexpress.

One problem is the the ghost doesn’t fit properly. A simple solution to the ghost shroud problem: Get rid of the black head and replace with a 1 x 1 round black stud.

Remember to paint the neck area black.

Put on the shroud and voila the eyes and mouth are all in black. And the shoulder gap is gone.

There is plenty of stock on Aliexpress, unlike retired Lego one which the prices are steep on secondary market. Highly recommended for displaying during the Halloween and fit well into Modular buildings. You may order Lepin Haunted House on Aliexpress.

  1. I recently got the same set; I turned a drill bit in the ghosts’ shrouds by hand to take about 1/16th of an inch off the cup inside. The bodies fit fine, now!
