Mega Bloks ProBuilder LEGO Compatible M1A1 Abrams Tank Review

Today we are looking at the biggest brick tank I've ever seen. This thing is huge! And sadly MegaBloks no longer makes this set, so I had to buy it used on Amazon. This is set # 9734, it has 850 pieces, and even though I bought it used, it had about 99% of the original pieces.

With all those Chinese brick companies, who regularly copy older LEGO, Oxford, and MegaBloks sets, I can't believe that none of them have copied this set yet. This is an amazing set from 2002, and if MegaBloks won't make it anymore, I hope one of those Chinese companies will.

Here it is on Amazon:

From the website:
Build and proudly display this authentically detailed Mega Bloks ProBuilder M1A1 Abrams Tank. The tank is named for the late General Creighton W. Abrams, former Army Chief of Staff and commander of the 37th Armored Battalion. A rotating gun turret and cannon, moveable rubber treads, companion sprocket wheels and opening hatches add to the fun when you take it out for maneuvers. Custom camouflage the large tan tank with pens of washable ink (included). The 330-pc. set also comes with pre-painted track skirting pieces.

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 fist 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.
