The following is the basic information about the product:
Building Block Manufacturer: XINGBAO, Building Block Item Number: XB-01030, Building Block Type: Street View Model, Factory Year: 2020, Number of Particles: 3274pcs
First of all, this has its own paper shell packaging, it seems that this is already the standard configuration of major manufacturers
What you see when you open the box is the gift box packaging bag delivered by Starcastle blocks.
The cover fully reflects the style of the flourishing Tang Dynasty
The gift bag is atmospheric, the product is just put in, and it can be used to send the accumulated oil to the child.
Returning to the outer box, this time the building is no longer just a color of Chinese red, this time the color is much richer
This time, there are a total of 4 models in Changan Zhuque Street. Two models were launched in the early stage. I am still working on the other one.
There are 6 Minifigures in total
Two men and four women
There are some introductions on the side
The length, width, and height of the product are in a relatively normal range
The bottom of the box is the address of the water meter
This time 🈶️ Free replacement APP and an anti-counterfeiting scratch code
The inner box does not continue the design of the world cover of Chinatown, but the form of the combination of two sketches of Changlefang
Starcastle’s trademark is also on the box
There is one bottom plate. I feel that the quality of the thin bottom plate is good this time. I will see if it will be upturned later.
A sticker, no problem cutting
Back of the manual
What’s unique this time is that the inner pages of the manual are rich in content
Introduction of Changlefang
In fact, the architectural layout of Chang’an City is divided into different levels, making full use of the topography of Longshouyuan. The imperial palace and administrative offices are built at the highest point, followed by the residents in Lifang District, and trenches are dug at the lowest point.
The building is mainly divided into three parts: Miyagi, Imperial City and Waiguo City. Miyagi is the place where the imperial family lives and handles government affairs. The imperial city is the seat of the central administrative agency. Outer Guocheng is home to residential areas, business districts, and temple towers.
The imperial city surrounds the Tai Chi Palace, and the city walls are strong and tall, forming an extremely tight defense system.
There is a north-south central axis (Zhuque Avenue) running through the whole city in the outer Guocheng. The east and west are balanced and symmetrical. The 25 criss-cross streets divide the city into east and west streets. The west is under the jurisdiction of Chang’an County, and the east is the Wannian. The county has jurisdiction, and Jingzhao Mansion has jurisdiction over Chang’an City and several surrounding counties. These jurisdictions are mentioned many times in the play.
All the fangs in Chang’an City are arranged symmetrically and evenly along the central axis, a total of 108 lifangs.

This time Chang’an Street was launched jointly with Dimo Culture. Those who have played China Street before are familiar with Dimo Culture.
The parts packages in the two inner boxes are mixed, so both need to be opened for classification
There are some slightly larger boards
Here is a bag of parts that need to be replaced by the original subcontract, everyone remember to use it
The house on the first floor has a foundation as a foundation
Here you can use the rubber hammer to help yourself (note: the rubber hammer is not an item in the suit, but a personal labor-saving tool)
The wine jar is a printed piece
The first floor is a restaurant
A lot of restaurant tables and chairs began to appear, the structure of that stool is so cute
The first layer is completed
Through the reinforcement of the top of the first floor, the entire first floor structure is very stable
There is a circle around the eaves that reflects the design of the mortise and tenon structure roof
Some tables, chairs and benches outside the restaurant
The signboard of Hujiajiu, this porch should be aligned with the convex points reserved on the ground when installing
There are no stairs inside the first floor, the stairs leading to the second floor are outdoors, and there is a cherry blossom tree in front of the door
The design of the stairs is very good
The red and yellow curtains hanging from the porch and the windows on the first floor are movable
The performance of the thin bottom plate is good. Not one of the four corners is tilted. I also heard that the new series of Starcastle uses a new high-precision mold. Will this bottom plate be a new mold?
The fourth pack starts to build the second layer
The floor slab on the second floor is directly integrated into the eaves, so it is also the thickest floor slab I have encountered in the street view.
The reserved bumps will be put on the interior
The links of the plants on both sides of the channel are not stable, because the bumps in the flowerpots cannot fit well with the parts. Contact and install at the end to prevent the two plants from falling off.
There are stairs to the third floor in the second floor
The door on the second floor is a designed movable part, which can realize the opening and closing of the door
The second floor was originally the Changsheng Building. For someone who has no gambling luck, let’s drink tea honestly.
Personally like the color of the fence
Looks neat and beautiful, full of highlights, without loss of monotony, especially the appearance design of the eaves is similar to the mortise and tenon structure, which is very in line with the characteristics of ancient architecture
Ready to build a building
Let’s take a look at the negative photos
Proceed to the fifth pack
The floor slab on the third floor is not because the bricks are hard, but because the plastic hammer can really leave a lot of strength.
The space on the third floor is limited and there are few items
This eight-final is a printed piece, is it a permanent eight-final in it?
This looks like a chess board
A lot of assembly on the third floor is repetitive work
A landscape painting
The plaque of Changlefang
Here under the eaves
The last subcontract is the roof part
There are many decorative parts on the roof, please contact the roof for installation, and then install the decorative parts at the lower end of the eaves.
The whole Changlefang is completed, let’s take a look at the multi-faceted photos
A friend said that the color of this building is very mixed, but I think it has the feeling of red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple, which is in line with the background of the prosperity of the Tang Dynasty. It is inevitable that this kind of artistic aesthetics was only in the prosperous period of the country.
Let’s take a look at the details of the appearance
I really don’t know what the structure in front of the stairs is called
The last bag is minifigures
The girl series body, arms and hands used in this minifigure are still different from the girl series minifigures
Men have also become beautiful, all with thin waists
It’s just that such a minifigure can’t sit on the bench
There are two fans matched by women, the other two matched bowls and cups, and they are still luminous pieces. Could it be the Liangzhou words described by Wang Han: Grape wine luminous cup, urge you to drink Pipa immediately. Drunk lying on the battlefield, Lord Grim, how many people will fight back in ancient times?
The family portrait is really beautiful
It’s fun to put on a pose every day
Optimistic, sitting upstairs, three are missing one
Starcastle restarted ancient Chinese architecture, and the first model performed well this time. It exceeded my expectations. There were more scratches on a small number of parts. Some glossy bricks were a bit tight, and the colors on the bricks were still very good.
The Minifigure adopts a brand-new form of expression. Although it is similar to the girl series, it is carefully discovered that this is the unique Minifigure image of Starcastle. The arms, palms, etc. are all different, and this time the Minifigure has a good facial expression. The printing is clear, and there are many eyes.
The design of the entire product assembly process is relatively mature (the Dimo culture has improved a lot). It is reasonable to control the subcontracting steps from 6 to 9 so that the number of parts in each step is not too much, and the assembly is first reduced. Psychological difficulty. Secondly, the process of assembling is much easier. More than 3000 pieces of building blocks were completed without knowing it, and there were no very abusive steps in the process. The only thing that I felt that there were more repeated steps was the windows and eaves.
