    I think it's called"enlighten". 100% not lego. Usually they advertise as lego compatible and not as actual lego so check the ad before leaving bad feedback

    yeah I was not going to leave bad feed back as it never said it was lego technically. Just was building blocks which i assumed was lego :-D. not great quality

    Yep, its the knock-off Chinese "LEGO." Open a case with eBay and get your money back!

    Yeah, it's illegal to sell in the USA, at least! Copyright violations on the box art, not to mention that the minifigs and possibly other elements violate trademark and/or copyright laws. They're therefore an interesting novelty, but supposedly REALLY low quality.

    Some pages of the instructions on larger sets also seem to be exact copies of LEGO instructions. I bought a small set a while ago just to really compare the quality. Pretty bad. But it did have a nice chrome sword.

    We see a LOT of the LEGO copies over here in my region. People who are not aware of LEGO are pushed to buy these cheap knockoffs and even at higher prices. The quality is nothing compared to LEGO especially the mini figures, instructions are close copy of LEGO but one thing lacks which is the Clutch power of LEGO :)

    @davee123 yeah it is really terrible quality feels horrible.

    It is a basic rip off of the set it is representing http://www.brickset.com/detail/?Set=6036-1. with the instructions the same.

    I may well keep it as a curiosity. Im not sure what the UK laws are about these but he doesnt mention it being lego at all.

    ^^ Wow, LEGO could easily sue them. They basically copied the set!

    yeah it is exactly the same. Thats why i though it was lego when i bought it. Im not sure they care really as no where seems to stock them

    Its been mentioned before I think, but the Black Seas Barracuda knock-off is pretty blatant! And by calling it 'Black Pearl' they've copied another brand as well.

    wow that is really blatent. Surely lego must want to do something about it. If they are making nothing but old sets.
