Lepin 33001 Fort Legoredo Review
A good news for those who wanted to collect a long discontinued Western theme Lego set. This is either a clone version of Lego 6769 or Lego 6762, in which the later was the re-released of the former in 2002. We can’t tell which one did Lepin 33001 Fort Legoredo was based on. This set didn’t have any numbered bags. Also the printing quality of the manual isn’t as good as the instruction for sets that were based on the newer set released by Lego.
Open box of Lepin 33001
Lepin listed 742 parts, which are higher than parts count on Lego set 6769 and 6762. There is no numbered bag for Lepin 33001 as Lego didn’t have it for the set back then.
The minifigures of Lepin 33001
There are 10 minifigures, with four cowboys and six Calvary soldiers. Three horses are included. The quality of the minifigures are good to keep, but the annoying part is Calvary Colonel had the logo printed at the back of his hat. If you try wear the hat with the logo in front, it would cover the face.
Classic look and expression on the minifigures.
The horse is not for bandit to ride on.
All together 10 minifigs and 3 horses. Value for money!
Building Fort Legoredo Lepin 33001
The colour reproduction is horrible for this manual. Also Lepin skipped some steps so you need to guess what parts were being used. Please refer to original manual if you have doubt.
A change of parts from 1×2 logs to 1×4 logs.
Two red parrots gracing the entrance.
Usually Lepin would change the wording from Lego to itself. Guess Lepin don’t give a damn on trademark this time around.
Raising the flag of “Legoredo”. Some of the Lepin buyers actually prefer “Lepinredo”.
Special parts on spruce.
First part of the fort completed.
Two bandits hiding in the barrels, waiting to ambush.
Second outer wall completed.
Third wall built.
Classic style of window with double panels.
Final building completed. The canon is not working.
Back of the fort.
Gold coins hided in mountain.
The headquarters of the Calvary.
Overall look of Lepin 33001. A classic cowboy fort.
Thought on Lepin 33001 Fort Legoredo
Lepin 33001 Fort Legoredo is a great alternative to either Lego 6769 or 6762. Beside the hat problem for the Calvary Colonel, the minifigures are of good quality. There is no pricky bush for this set because Lepin never open a mold for it. The Lepin Haunted House didn’t have the bush either. A ladder is missing in the set, could be just us. Other than that, a cool set to bring back childhood memory for those who once own Lego 6769 or 6762. You could order Lepin 33001 from Aliexpress.
