Customeeple Review Part 2: Neon City Yu Jing S Octopus + Dojo

Hello Everyone,

In this part we will take a look at the Customeeple Building Set “Neon City Yu Jing S Octopus + Dojo”:

For a closer look at the assembly and instructions that come with the set, please look at Review Part 1 as the two sets are almost the same and share mostly the same merits and problems when it comes to assembling.

The Instruction Sheet for this Set can also be downloaded from the Customeeple Homepage should you lose it or prefer a digital version:

In this Set I didn’t see any real differences between the Instruction Sheet and the real product I got, except the 1 missing roof wall I mentioned in Part 1.

IMG_1238.JPGThe Set  comes with a row of chairs for the small restaurant, a sliding door for the dojo (which can be assembled to be movable), a stairway to the roof, and each building can also be assembled with a removable door, ventilators for the roof, a removable hatch into the building, and ladders for the side of the buildings.

Just like with the Sushi + Bonsai Set from Part 1, I painted the building by hand and went for a dirty look to fir with my other buildings and the theme I had in mind.

Just like with the Sushi + Bonsai Set I would have greatly prefered for the buildings to have a floor and detachable roofs, but that aside I am quite happy with the buildings themselves.

The Dojo looks a bit “old school” for Infinity, and mabe a little bit of a futuristic touch would have helped it along (Maybea Neon Dojo Sign  on the side or something along those lines?), but then again that has it’s own charm and I ended up liking it.


All in all I am also very happy with this Set of buildings. The size is perfect, they fit good into the Infinity Universe, it combines good with other terrain, and is very playable.

With the practice from the first set I had even less problems with assembling the kit (although the small gaps on the roof walls remain..) and like before they are easily outshined by the end result.

I’ll give this set a 7.5/10, slightly lower than the Sushi + Bonsai Set because I think the Dojo could do with a little more Neon, but once again I would recommend this set for anyone who is a fan of Yu Jing style buildings!
