Boeing 787 Dreamliner Brick Set by Cobi Toy Review: LEGO Compatible and LEGO Quality

This is a very cool Cobi set that I’ve been wanting for a long time. I was tired of the high prices being asked on Amazon for this set here in the USA. So I went directly to the Cobi website in Poland, and they have it for 33.30 Euro, plus shipping and tax. Even though it was still more than I wanted to pay, it was still cheaper than buying it on Amazon. And it was delivered very fast; the Cobi website says “2 – 5 days Worldwide” delivery time.

This set comes with two minifigs, but I think making this a minifig set was a slight mistake. Anyways, stop reading here; I explain all of this in the video.

From Wiki:
The Boeing 787 Dreamliner is a long-range, mid-size wide-body, twin-engine jet airliner developed by Boeing Commercial Airplanes. Its variants seat 242 to 335 passengers in typical 3-class seating configurations. It is Boeing’s most fuel-efficient airliner and is a pioneering airliner with the use of composite materials as the primary material in the construction of its airframe. The 787 was designed to be 20% more fuel efficient than the 767 it is replacing. The 787 Dreamliner’s distinguishing features include mostly electrical flight systems, a four-panel windshield, and noise-reducing chevrons on its engine nacelles. It shares a common type rating with the larger Boeing 777 to allow qualified pilots to operate both models.

LEGO clones or Knockoffs
This quote from Wikipedia addresses the rights for other companies to produce LEGO-like bricks, but does not address whether LEGO actually had the right to patent them in the first place:
At least two of the largest clone manufacturers have been challenged in court by Lego. The lawsuits have been mostly unsuccessful, as courts have generally found the functional design of the basic brick to be a matter of patent rather than trademark law, and all relevant Lego patents have expired.

  1. Cobi Boeing sets start at about 40PLN which is ~12$ for 200 blocks 767. The 600 blocks 787 in Poland You must pay 100pln so ~30$. For ~70$ (230PLN) You can have a never version of Cobis 787 – 700 blocks set.

    My goal here is not to make a fancy custom MOC, but rather to showcase some very cool brick sets out there, regardless of whether they are made by LEGO, or some other brick company. Cobi for instance, is made in Poland and like LEGO and MegaBloks, Cobi legally obtains a license to use a name or likeness. So when Cobi makes a Jeep, they pay a licensing fee to FCA US LLC in order to do so. Just like in order to legally make a Boeing jet like this, Cobi had to pay a fee to Boeing for the use of the Boeing name, and the likeness of the 787 Dreamliner.
