Purity: Tenkai Knights Blind Bag Review

I picked this up on a whim, hoping the price per piece would be something close to sane.

These retail for $2.99.  Which means the price per piece for this one was $1.00.

Yup, that's all the pieces in this one Tail, body, and head.  That's all you get.  I'll be able to use the head and tail but I have no idea how I'm going to use that brick.

Let's get a closer look at that brick.  I'll admit that it is an incredible piece of engineering.

Here it is all assembled.

The Questions:
Can you build a frame, or frames, right away?  The figure can be used as a 4P frame so, yes.  (+5)
Is it below, at, or above the golden ratio?  At retail price, above.  Way above.  (-10) (The Golden Ratio is $0.10 per part.)

If you can't build a frame right away, or choose not to, does it have parts you should be able to put into use right away?  Yes.  (+5)
Does it have more than a handful of immediately useful parts?  No.  (-5)
Score: -5 (B-).  Don't let the score fool you, these are horrible deals.
