Are these LEGO panels?

No LEGO logos, or indeed ANYONE'S.

    The arch looks too wide to be an official Lego piece. Could they be customs of some sort?

    I had those exact panels as a kid. They’re not Lego, but I can’t remember who they were. I’ll follow up if I figure it out.
  • 560Heliport560Heliport Member Posts: 4,235 mean there are other toy companies that make interlocking plastic bricks? 🤔

    No.  They're from a (defunct?) knock-off brand, "COKO", that I've never heard of.
    For better photos, see this current eBay listing of a 'bags sealed' open box:
    The history section of Lego's website mentions the COKO brand on its page "LEGO® factories in South Korea":

    In 1985, the LEGO Group opens its first factory in South Korea. The 3,700‑m² plant at Kunpo is sited approx. 25 km south of Seoul. The first locally molded LEGO element, a red 2x4 brick, rolls off the production line on March 27.

    The LEGO Group’s decision to set up molding in South Korea is reached for several reasons. The company observes an economic development in this part of Asia, which can increase its share of the market. At the same time international competition, with the appearance of more imitation products, may well spread beyond South Korea. A South Korean product, COKO, a copy of LEGO products, is already gaining ground in Korea.

    The fact that a company must set up local production in order to enter the market in this part of Asia is also a contributing factor for the decision.

    The early campaign in South Korea are not easy for the LEGO Group. With COKO already on the market, it is difficult for LEGO products to establish a presence. Initially, LEGO products are actually assumed to be copies of COKO, not vice versa!

    (At first, I thought they might be Tyco Super Blocks, because Tyco did make at least one castle set.)

    Question or statement?

    Question. It'd have to be US only, probably, but figured asking wouldn't hurt, before I throw them out.

    Hahaha Cocko.
    Just did a quick search and Coko seems to still be around but mainly educational toys aimed at schools and teachers. Only seeing their products on educational stores and not sites like standard toy stores or Target etc.

    No logos nearly always means no.  Only earlier bricks don't logos.
