Toybox of FAIL: Violent Wind Speed

Please take a moment and read the Toybox of FAIL Disclaimer. Thanks!

Violent Wind Speed / Cross-Country

Jing Zhiwei toys continues to up the "WTF" quotient of their knock-off toys. Just when you get used to the idea that they're blatantly stealing LEGO product designs, they go and make their packaging even more incomprehensible.

Is today's toy called "Violent Wind Speed"? Or "Cross-Country"? "36 pcs"?

Maybe "No. 803"?

Whatever it's called, a better translation would have been "crap."

I mean, just look at this thing. The colors are crap. The pieces are crap. The printing is crap. Heck, even the figure's hand is a malformed piece of half-digested waste.

If this car was subjected to "cross-country" or "violent wind speed" there's no doubt in my mind it'd end up in at least 36 pieces.


Still, thanks as always to Joe from The Undiscovered Playthings for sending me this set to review. Sorry I wasn't more bitter, but I've had a long day.

If you flick that thing across the desk with your finger, does it fall apart at the first obstacle?

its not a bad design...

@Ben: Remember, these are FAIL's we're talking about.

This is probably a clone of a clone of a LEGO set, or some other brand.

Nobody designed this set, they just ripped it off some real set and poorly copied it.

It's like when the teacher gives someone a low grade for copying someone else's work. These FAILs should get a F for whoever copied them.

You don't need to flick it; just give it a dirty look, and it'll explode on you.

(I say this from experience... *grins*)

Bite-sized Fail?

I quite like it.
