Review of Lepin 05026 UCS Death Star II Clone of Lego 10143

Lepin 05026 is a UCS clone set which is based on retired Lego 10143 Death Star II.  There is no minifigure for this set. Basically Lepin followed the original instruction closely. A set with whopping 3449 pieces, there are lots of repetitive steps, which may bored you.

Lepin still have lots of room to improve on the technics parts. My fingers hurt after inserting all those pins and technics parts, which are very stiff.

After three days, finally the Death Star II is here. This is the set built for display purpose. If you are looking for play set, then you shall consider Lepin 05035 instead.

Note that the “Star War” display plate was a print out based on original design . Lepin copy has the “Star Wrns” sign instead. Because the original is no longer in production, this is good alternative to consider. You could get Lepin 05026 Death Star II via Aliexpress.

Please handle  Lepin Death Star II with extreme care. Due to the design, it’s heavy on top, which topple easily.
