Building Block | Base Plate
Target in Australia produced a generic base plate under the Building Block brand that is compatible with LEGO® brick system. These are affordable ones as they are China-made, but it’s not considered a fake or a knock-off though it is considered a supplement to the LEGO® base plate that goes for $10.00 AUD.
They are considered an affordable alternative to some discontinued base plates produced by LEGO® as they are now expensive. This Target produced five colors of this base plate that matches the LEGO® colored bricks. They come in standard Blue, Green, Red, Yellow and Gray that you can find next to the LEGO® shelf.
Though they are not official product they’re compatible to LEGO® and other construction toy brands. The only thing that is not good with these plates is that they are not flat when you lay them down on a smooth surface.
But overall they are an alternative for those who are not into the bigger base plate that LEGO® is currently selling under the Classic theme. A casual AFOL (Adult Fan of LEGO®) who doesn’t much would pick this up as an alternative. It’s certainly a product alternative that can be use for someone into minimal MOC (My Own Creation) build and it will work well with this dimension.
“Base Plate” with dimension 16 x 16 cm is a third party product under the Building Block brand, which is produced in five colors and exclusively available only at Target in Australia for $2.00 AUD or PHP 80.00 Philippine pesos.
