Boot Legos Special Edition: Buy Frames HERE!

Postby Riptor25 » Sat Jul 16, 2016 9:49 am

So as some of you may know, I buy cheap Chinese boot-leg legos. Now, in some of my BootLego reviews I've covered sets done by a small-time company named MCH Custom who do a combination of true Lego MOCs and other non-Lego sets. After finding out that I did reviews of their products, they contacted me and asked about my reviews, and our community. We chatted, and not long afterwards they message me again saying they wanted my opinion on whether several designs would appeal to our players! They sent me several pictures of four different designs (all by our very own Eduty here on the forum!!) and after negotiating a cost, I invested to have the parts for two of the designs assembled and ready to go.

So, without further ado, we introduce the OMF-G17 "Firefly" with 75 pieces



And here is the OMF-G19 "Hellcat" with 83 pieces



Both sets offer lots of pose-ability, and look right at home on a battlefield. Barring Lego coming out with actual sets like these, MCH has made the closest thing to a starter kit I've seen yet. Now, are these actual Lego bricks? No. Does the brick quality match Lego? No. The only problem I had was with the lightsaber parts. They are just a hair loose when placed in clip pieces, but both ends fit snugly into other bricks. Aside from that, the bricks are sturdy and seem to connect quite well (meeting standards I've come to expect from MCH Custom).



The BEST part about this is that I struck a deal with MCH so I can sell these beauties! This way I can offer an affordable alternative to scouring the internet for pieces and instead offer a ready-to-build set. They are $6 per set, or 3 sets for $15 USD (not including shipping). That comes out to $0.08 per piece for the Firefly, $0.07 per piece for the Hellcat, and about $0.06 per piece on both sets if you take the 3 for $15 deal. This is mostly to cover costs. As of right now, red is the only color option available. When you buy them, you'll get the sets you ordered, and an email containing the LDD instructions. I have about 30 of each type on-hand. You CANNOT get these anywhere else! I have them on hand, so no waiting weeks for a Chinese import either.

I would really like to see this succeed because cheap, accessible sets have been what this community needed for some time. Cost and brick quality have always been a balancing act for us, but I believe this is as close to a true balance as we'll ever get (aside from official Lego branding). Please let me know if you have questions or comments! Would you rather have me list these on eBay? Are there other colors you would be interested in? What do you think about the price per piece? Depending on how sales go, I will contact MCH Custom about Eduty's OMF-G17 "Pamela" and OMF-G "Angel" designs, and possibly more sets designed by others here in our little community!

Please note that this LDD is a prototype image, and there may be slight changes in both colors and parts between this picture and the final products.

That's some really great news!

Those are all excellent deals for beginners.

If I can make a suggestion, try making a "two in one" pack of a very small and simple frame, like a Doompa, a Twank or my ST-01 Classic (they don't need to pick the exact models, just something inspired among those lines). That would make army building even easier for someone starting out.

Does that MCH custom place want more LDDs? A lot of those designs were based on "cheap" prices from LEGO PAB. Now let's say MCH can give you a better deal on travis bricks, etc, then you can pursue better, more durable techniques for joints.

If they can do Mixel ball joints.... the options open WAY up.

I'd like to see more well-developed non-weapon systems. Sure, armor is subjective, and the pseudo-super-chub has an antenna on it, but how 'bout some shields, flight packs, or sensor greebles? A quad might be nice? Again, nothing from stopping you from bricking something else out of the kit, and looking at all four sets next to each other, I'm pretty sure that's what they're going for. Pretty sure I can spot which parts need to be moved from one model to another to make a chub, a high-leg, and a commissar out of the four sets, and I'm sure there's another one or two hiding in there somewhere.

That brings me to a more pressing question? Have you reached out to Joshua at all about this? Soren?

Glad to hear it, and thanks for taking the time to clarify for me, Riptor. I can't speak for anyone else, but I'm far more comfortable monetarily supporting the effort knowing everyone's on board.

I don't know if I ever mentioned this, but I'm a huge fan of that G47 line. In my opinion it's the perfect set for this kind of thing. Small, but that keeps it inexpensive—and everything in it are workhorse parts that benefit someone who decides to expand their collection.
