This Leier Robin Hood off-road vehicle is basically exactly the same as the Double Eagle C61006 Adventurer, so this review is basically an evaluation of the original design of the Double Eagle. Of course, as a player, I don’t know the copyright situation, so I only evaluate the building blocks themselves.
Although Leier’s name is Robin Hood and Double Eagle’s name is Adventurer, they are actually JEEP Wranglers. Yuxing Mowang also has a new Wrangler product recently.
The biggest design highlight of this off-road vehicle is the remote control differential lock; in addition, the doors that can be automatically closed and the battery that is easy to disassemble are all very good design points.
Leier’s building block is a static version, and I have equipped it with PF parts and LED lights.
First upload a few pictures of my finished product.
Packaging, subcontracting parts, instructions
↑There is a 3D card in the package, and different pictures can be seen from different angles.
Among them, 2 L motors are used for vehicle driving power, and 1 L motor is responsible for controlling the differential lock.
According to the PF piece prompt on the product color box, the PF pieces I prepared are as follows:
But one of the extension cords is useless because my LED light cord is long enough. In addition, I added two Yuxing SMD LED lights for the roof lights.
This Leier Robin Hood off-road vehicle uses high brick parts. After inspection, almost all parts are high brick parts.
Some photos are as follows:
Some parts of the thick hole arm use high brick new mold parts, that is, the glue point is moved from the appearance surface to the side, and there is no need to judge the direction when assembling, which is very good!
The transparent thick hole arm is rarely seen. It just so happens that this thick hole arm is a high-brick new mold part, and the part number printed inside, 668A can be clearly seen.
The 4 shock absorbers cannot be confirmed whether they are high-brick parts, and they don’t look like it.
In addition, the tires are Leier’s own parts. (The wheel hub is a high brick part)
Overall assembly experience
The entire assembly process took about 18 hours, including inspection of the parts and photographs during the process.
As for the assembly feel, because the high-brick parts are used, there is no problem in all aspects except that the friction pin is a little tighter.
Leier’s instructions are very clear, with almost no errors. However, the structure of the front and rear axles of this car is relatively close, which makes it difficult to assemble.
The approximate steps are as follows:
Note that there is a part in the step-by-step diagram below that is incorrectly installed, and I will modify it later. Don’t use these pictures to compare your own assembly, the pictures are just to show a rough step.
The gear ratio in the suspension drive axle of this car is 1:1 (2 per group
The bottom photo shows that it is exactly the same as the Double Eagle Adventurer:
Important matters/assembly suggestions
The finished product is as follows:
This Leier Robin Hood off-road vehicle performs very well in terms of parts quality, assembly feels, and product accuracy. The assembly steps of the manual are very detailed and there are basically no errors. In addition to a tighter feel, it should be said to be very good in terms of comprehensive assembly experience.
This car is an original design from Double Eagle, and in terms of design, I am very surprised. Especially the design of remote control differential lock is an absolute design highlight. In addition, the compact structure of the front and rear bridges, as well as a large number of thin perforated arms and
I even guessed whether the design of this car came from the MOC author, not the official designer. Because of the productization of this car, many designs did not take into account the difficulty of assembly; in particular, this car did not use Shuangying’s proprietary parts.
Compared to Lego Land Rover, I personally prefer the design of this car. At least its power version can really be used for play, unlike Lego Land Rover, which is basically a gearbox with the shape of a car and cannot run on the ground.
In any case, I hope that there will be more and more classic building blocks from domestic original designs!
