Parts 2. Blade Tonfa, Robot Arms, two printed tiles -- one each round and square -- four new 1x2/2x2 Brackets, two new Technic bits, three minifig guns, and a host of other small bits we all like.
The second was an experiment in connections called Power Armor.
Can you build a frame, or frames, right away? Yes. (+5)
Is it below, at, or above the golden ratio? At retail price, 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? Yes. (+5)
Score: +5 (B+). This should have had a better score. Lego seriously dropped the ball with the pricing on this line.
