As expected: LEPIN bootlegs the Silent Mary from the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie

LEGO has just unveiled its 71042 Pirates of the Caribbean – Dead Men Tell No Tales Silent Mary LEGO Store Exclusive set and LEPIN was very quick to follow 🙂

The bootleg version of this 2294 piece whopper is numbered 16042 with LEPIN. But the differences don’t stop there! The theme is called Pirates of the Caribbeans (yes, with an extra “s” for the very naive) and the box art suggests the set depicts a scene from the 4th installment of the series, 2011’s On Stranger Tides. As if On Stranger Tides is not subject to any intellectual property LOL. Also, the LEPIN version counts 2344 pieces (they are known to mess with original design and throw in a lot of spares…but then again also miss quite a few of the essential parts).

We know the official set will be sold for 200$ in LEGO Stores, so I’m dying to see how much the LEPIN version will cost…probably around the 60$ mark.

UPDATE: popped up on Aliexpress for 118$, kinda steep!
