Purity: Dr. Mayhem Polybag Review

Here's a review of a Kre-O polybag that I stumbled across recently.

The bag, instructions, stickers, and the insert all Cityville sets come with.

The eponymous microfig.  I'd like to use that torso section in a build but I'm not sure how yet.  And one of these days I will have enough of those "Kre-O" bricks to build a piece of terrain.

The parts.  I could actually post something here, but we all know the only thing anyone is going to see is that weapon in the lower left corner. It can be held or clip on to a bar.

The Questions:
Can you build a frame, or frames, right away?  Kind of.  While the package does show Dr. Mayhem riding some sort of proto-frame, this wouldn't really cut it in a MFZ game.  (-5)
Is it below, at, or above the golden ratio?  Just slightly above.  (-10)
If you can't build a frame right away, does it have parts you should be able to put into use right away?  Oh yes.  (+5)
Does it have more than a handful of immediately useful parts?  Yes. (+5)
Score: -5 (B-).  It's a fun polybag with a big gun and neat parts.  Regular price is $3.99 so grab it on sale if you want this.  A sale that drops the PpP to the Golden Ratio or below would raise the score to +10 (A-).
