Review of Lepin 16050 Old Fishing Store Clone of Lego 21310

Another shameless knockoff release from Lepin and this time the “victim” is Old Fishing Store which LEGO launched on Sept. 2 2017. It took Lepin slightly over a month to clone this set and the reason for the delay is due to Lepin 16016 The Flying Dutchman set which also used lots of printed wooden planks like Old Fishing Store. The design credit goes to Robert Bontenbal, who was the original designer and Adam Grabowski, the LEGO designer who turned Robert’s design into a commercial set. Please support the original product if you could afford to.

Not sure whether you notice the deteriorate in quality of flat tiles. Definitely it’s due to wear and tear in Lepin’s molding.

Beautiful set, though it’s knockoff. Our verdict for Lepin 16050 Old Fishing Store was it’s a faithful replication of the original. The minor imperfection would be the non dual plastic injection for the minifigures’ legs. Also there are uneven surface due to wear out of the molding. Do note due to rich interior details, lots of patience needed to get the build done. You may order Lepin 16050 from Aliexpress. In the mean time enjoy lots of photos of the Lepin Old Fishing Store.
