Hello guys!

I'm just new here. I can't seem to find a topic like this so I created one. Mods please delete this thread if there's already one.

Can you help me spot a fake Lego set from an authentic one? I know It could be hard basing from the pictures alone.

I would like to buy this particular set

But I can't really tell if this is authentic or not. It looks good though. I just got aware that there are other brands that offers this model (Bela, Decool etc).

Please help me. Thanks!

    Greetings nice to have you on board. From the picture it is this set

    I think its a nice set and a bit of bargin at that price. But without looking at it you cant tell if its a mix of other brands or pure lego. Though Im sure it is

    Thanks for the welcome! I still can't set them apart. I found these other replica

    Which made me think twice on the item I was about to buy.

    Ask the seller if all parts are genuine Lego.

    Yup bro, just did that. Does all Lego parts come with "Lego" engravings?

    ^Yes, on top of each stud or underneath, also the part number will be there. I'm pretty sure every part has this, even windows and wheels, but I could be wrong.

    Its the wheels that give it away they look like the same wheels on the brickset set. Where as the chinese versions are slightly diffirent. But see what the seller comes back and says it is

    hi guys! the seller said it's genuine Lego set. I will buy this set then :)
    It will be quite pricey though as I will ship it here in the Philippines. Thanks guys for the reply!
