This would be a dream come true for many fans of discontinued Lego Pharaoh’s Quest series. When Lepin released set 15015 L. Rivendell Museum of Natural History which included Anubis Guard minifig, there was speculation that Pharaoh’s Quest would be next. It took a 10 months wait before Lepin released set 31001 Scorpion Pyramid. Still, there were hesitation on our part due to uncertainty over the 32 x 48 x 6 base plate. After the build we were glad that the base plate were a solid piece for the Pyramid. The photos were taken by CK for this review.
Box view of Lepin 31001 Pyramids Seeks Scorpion Pyramid. To avoid copyright issue Lepin substitue the Pharoah’s Quest with another name.
Came in two inner white boxes. All the parts are presorted according to building instruction.
One instruction manual. The original had two booklets.
Sticker sheet for the set. Not sure about the color reproduction. Your could get the the bigger sheet for EURO 2.50 on bricklink.
We know many would buy this set just because of the Anubis Guard. The quality is excellent. Lepin is getting so good in making minifigures that they even launched a line for minifigures alone. Hopefully Lepin would sell the mummy and the Anubis minifigures separately.

Only complaint would be the gray sword and shield. The original was in black!

Dark Tan Baseplate, Raised 32 x 48 x 6
Excellent piece of molding for a block of raised base plate.

The Half-track with mounted gun. But the minifigure had problem sitting in.
Am I supposed to drive and shoot at the same time?
The parts were printed, no sticker applied.

The focus point for this review was this pyramid. My head was thinking of the movies series such as The Mummy, the Indiana Jones and the Stargate. The creepy mummy, hidden traps and treasures were what we think of Egyptian pyramid.
Building the stairs leading to the pyramid gate.
Adding the obelisk to the side and the pyramid was in its full glory (or gore)
A pool to raise the snakes?
Some kind of sacrificial pit.
Enter the gate with your own peril!
The stairs aren’t normal, they are traps!
Pharaoh’s burial chamber
Jake and the Professor are both going after this gem stone.
The sarcophagus. In Stargate it was used to prolong the life span of the alien being.
What took you so long to release me?The scorpion was kind of redundant here. Hard to balance it on top of the pyramid.
Lepin 31001 Scorpion Pyramid is a must have for fans of Lego Adventurers series. The minifigures are of top notch, and the tan pieces closely match the color of the original. Highly recommended for fans of ancient Egyptian theme. You may order Lepin 31001 from Aliexpress.
If you are looking to get more minifigures of Anubis Guard and the Mummies, one option is to get the ones made by KOPF of its KL9006 series.
However the Anubis didn’t have the leg printing, as you could see from the picture below. And it didn’t include the shield. You could check out KL9006 from Aliexpress.
