Sluban Lego Clone Review

Sluban Lego clone Review

Sluban are a Lego clone company, originating from China, and trading under the name of Oxford in Korea, I’m not entirely sure as the packaging and photos seem the same.

I’ve found various places including Wilkinsons (thanks Jasbrick) and Ebay that sell Sluban.  It seems that Oxford, produce more products than Sluban. Additionally I found a Dutch website that seems associated with Sluban.

The Sluban bricks are virtually identical to Lego bricks and whilst the suffer from being slightly poorer quality anf finish, they seem to fit with Lego bricks fairly well. The Minifigs however are pretty useless, the minifigs are made similar to Lego minifigs with the same joint movements as a Lego minifig, however the significant difference in the sluban minifigs is the Legs, these are connected to the body differently and the Legs are more shaped, in actual facts this actually works against the Sluban minifig.

The one key feature about sluban that is brilliant is the minifig helmet (in this case), and the chest piece which Jasbrick commonly uses, these minifig helmets fit perfectly on a Lego minifig and are Idea for any custom minifig work you might choose to do.

When you consider that the Sluban Box I bought cost me less than £1.50 when I bought it in a market in south east asia, and i got two minifig helmets from it, that’s about £0.75 per helmet which isn’t too bad, and as for the bricks, I’ll probably still use them.

Shop Sluban Lego on Ebay now.

    I got some sets from Wilko too, there are even cheaper in some market stalls, 62p for a military boat set with 2 mini figures.

    The Sluban sets are a clone of the Oxford sets. There is a section in the Oxford website warning about clones of it’s stuff.

    As stated in the above comment by Custom miniFigs.

    Sluban is actually a pirated company that clones Oxford sets. Oxford sets are original, while Sluban are exact duplicates, made with cheaper plastic… they lack in quality and are greatly inferior to the Korean Oxford. I know because I own both brands, and there is a real difference 😉

    Hey, I tied some of these bricks and they smell bad!

    Any idea what the smell is from and if it’s bad for kids to breath?

    Thanks!

    I never seen such rubbish. Bought two land forces sets today and building is a nightmare. And when I built it, it fell apart almost immediately. In holland we got this saying ‘goedkoop is duurkoop’ which means as much as ‘cheap is expensive’.
    Selling these products should be forbidden
