Buying fake Nico71’s Product

But Mochub or Buildamoc are not the only stores who sell Nico71’s creations. There are many other on amazon, Ebay, Aliexpress, Wish and so on. They are all unauthorised and have simply pirated my creations and instructions. They are also composed of Chinese copy of Lego parts, which ensure you to get the worst quality and bad functioning

Please note that all these companies have been noticed to cease and desist according French law n°92-597  regarding intellectual property and copyrighted. Buying such fake Lego creations, is encouraging piracy, infringe law of intellectual property.

How to make the difference ?

For the official Lego sets :

  • Search on Rebrickable if it is an official set, if yes, compared the price to the official Lego product. If the price is to nice regarding the size, it is very probable that it is composed of fake Lego (you can count roughly 0.07€ to 0.15€/pcs).
  • Search the explicit sentence about using Lego genuine parts, if is not written, this is mostly fake. “bricks” or “block” are not Lego parts, search specifically the word Lego.
  • Don’t trust the review, it is mostly fake. You can use Reviewmeta to know if they are true or not.
  • Ask on the Lego Technic. page facebook if the product is fake or not. There are many experts who will answer to you.

For other creations :

  • If the price is too nice for the size (you can count a roughly 0.1€ to 0.2€/pcs, a 100€ supercar with 2000 parts is not possible)
  • Search in the store the explicit consent of the builder, even if you can see the author video of pictures.
  • Search the explicit sentence about using Lego genuine parts, if is not written, this is fake. “bricks” or “block” is not Lego parts, search specifically the word Lego.
  • Sometime, these thieving companies even embed the author’s YouTube video or pictures, or the Rebrickable id (composed of MOC-XXXX). If so, search on the site’s author if he authorizes that or contact him on his website or Rebrickable.
  • Do a Reverse Image Search, by download a picture, you will see other websites they are used, surely with the author’s website.
  • Ask on the Lego Technic. page facebook if the product is fake or not. There are many experts who will answer to you.
