Review: 31003 Red Rotors

Here's a review of a small Creator set.

The box.

Three instruction books, one for each model you can build.

Parts bag 1.  There are a bunch of double cheese slopes, a couple of lampholders, a few 1x1 Trans-Clear bricks, and a couple of 1x2 Modified Plates w/Bar (closed ends).

Parts bag 2. A bunch of plates, a few stepped brackets, and a couple of those rotors w/studs.

Parts bag 3.  Slopes and bricks.

The Questions:
Can you build a frame, or frames, right away?  No, I'm not sure you can.  (-5)
Is it below, at, or above the golden ratio?  below.  (+5)
If you can't build a frame right away, does it have parts you should be able to put into use right away?  I'd say yes.  (+5)
Does it have more than a handful of immediately useful parts?  Yes. (+5)
Score: 10 (A-).  I like what's in here, I just don't think it's going to be immediately useful unless this is exactly what you're looking for -- or you need a lot of red pieces.
