Introducing: Buildarmy®

After a lot of market research (and quite a bit of building!) we're so excited to announce that we're expanding our offering to include new brands of brick military sets. The first being Buildarmy®!

All Buildarmy® products are hand-designed by Dr. Ruibin Zhang, who is a huge Lego and Military history buff who wanted to bring an option to the market of a detailed and realistic military vehicle model that was Lego-compatible.

"As a LEGO® and WW2 fan, I used to search for bricks on BrickLink all over the world to build my MOC. However, I found it difficult to build an army from LEGO® bricks since some parts are rare and expensive. I have even bought the red motorcycle tops and painted them to grey in order to build the German motorcycle.

Once when I was travelling in China, I occasionally saw my nephew playing some Chinese brand bricks, which look similar to LEGO®. However I realized that most of them are copying the sets of Lego, which I personally quite despise. I bought some sets only to recycle their bricks for MOC. I found some of them have surprisingly good quality and totally compatible with LEGO®. Then I read that the patent of LEGO® has long expired and the manufacturing of basic bricks is legal. Thus I located the top quality brick brand in China and started to order more.

My aim is to build all the famous vehicles that have seen actions in WW2. I started from German vehicles as most of our stock bricks are grey." - Dr. Ruibin Zhang
