Review of Lepin 15008B Green Grocer Modular Building with Lighting Kit

What we got here is updated version of Lepin Green Grocer Modular Building which include lighting kit.  The previous version Lepin 15008 was released July 2016 which had  parts swapped and thick base plates. For this updated release, Lepin had 100% replication including the diamond grille shape window and thin base plates (same as Lego). However it didn’t came with number bags, a big minus point for that.

Two thin green base plates so full compatible with Lego Modular building. Two pieces of bonus road plates only for this release. However no number bags. Lepin 15008 Green Grocer KO of Lego 10185

All the wires connect to this hub. You could use a power bank to provide the electricity. 678

Building the Green Grocers. Lepin may not have the best quality among the China clone bricks but for this release it’s quite decent.

Finished building the Lepin Green Grocer. Can you tell whether it’s Lego or Lepin?

Lepin redeem itself by giving diamond grille window. The one Lepin release a year ago had square pattern window.

No instruction given on how to install the lighting kit. It’s up to us how to place the wires and LED. Expect messy wiring.

Inclusion of lighting kit is a big bonus to this set. You could order the LED light kit separately but Lepin saved the trouble by including them for the Green Grocer set. Because the original Green Grocer had been discontinued and the secondary market prices are steep, perhaps a knockoff version with light kit is the best alternative. Order Lepin 15008B Green Grocer from Aliexpress.
