Lepin 31001 Scorpion Pyramid Clone of Lego 7327 Pharaoh’s Quest

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.

The Minifigures

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!

The Pyramid

 

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.

The Summary

 

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.
