All of these sets feature some wacky combination of genres, like the way we used to build when we were kids. This leads to a wide selection of parts in each set. And, to top it all off, more than half of the sets feature a Price-Per-Peice lower than the Golden Ratio. All the information has been pulled from Brickset this time around as Bricklink still has not completed inventories on some of the sets in the line.

So, if the average price-per-piece of the line is $0.09, why can't Lego do this with more of their sets? I can understand Star Wars and the superhero sets being expensive as you have to pay off licensing fees. The City line, on the other hand, has been ruinously expensive lately and that makes no sense at all. Anyway. If you see these sets on sale, buy them. Eleven of thirteen are at or below the Golden Ratio. How can you go wrong with that?
In case you haven't figured it out, this post is a sneaky way of saying all of these are Good Sets for Parts. Except for maybe the two smallest sets. :-)
