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.

The corporation custom minifigs

The corporation custom minifigs

(The corporation custom minifig by Jasbrick)

This is Jasbrick’s latest project, so I’m guessing he’s finished his how-to ebook on his Briviet minfigs, I really like his stuff as he gets really creative with other parts, not just Lego parts, and his custom minfigs are sanded, painted and cut, on this particular custom minifig, i particularly like the night vision goggles and the combination of head, as it really ‘seals the deal’ in defining this minifig. the weapons are naturally from Brick arms, and Jasbrick has made a name for himself for producing this minifig chest rigs by modding sluban ( a clone Lego company) minifig accessories.

New Brickviet Custom minifigs by Jasbrick

Jasbrick has created a few more custom minfigs for his on going Brickviet custom minifig series, with a really strom sci-fi and russian influence, these custom minifigs are fantastic.

New Brickviet Custom minifigs by Jasbrick1

This custom minifig has a brilliant russian hand, chest piece and cigar, theres alot of cutting and modding to make such a custom minifig but i think you’ll agree its very distinct, the weapons are naturally Brick Arms, as for the minifig head, i’m unsure if its custom or a standard lego piece, certainly the coat rounds off the custom minifig really well.

I really like the creativity in this custom minifig, which is a minigunner from Jasbricks Brickviet custom minifig series, the eyepiece looks like it was a cut off part of the Lego oil can, and the ammo box on the Brick Arms  weapon is a single Lego clip piece, the chest piece is from a Lego clone company calle sluban, that has then been modified for these custom minifigs.

This is something really different from Jasbrick, I’m guessing its something of a new project, I really like the chestpiece and the alterations to the helmet

Boer War Lego custom minifigs

Boer War Lego custom minifigs

(1st Battalion, Royal Tabnerian Rifles custom minifigs by david tabner)

There is a real movement amongst Lego custom minifig builders to create massive uniformed armies of custom minifigs, this is usually popular with Star Wars Lego minifig fans, and there are massive Clone minifig armies. This however is the 1st Battalion, Royal Tabnerian Rifles, an army of custom minifigs inspired by the Boer wars, some of the details you might notice are the pith helmets, brown shoulder epaulettes and crossed ammo pouches (from the tusken raider starwars Lego minifig) Whilst  all the pieces in these minfigs  are standard, you can consider them a custom minifig as they different Lego elements have been selected to create a new minifig.
