Purity: 31145 Transformers Mirage Review

I stumbled across this one months ago in the tiny Clearance section of a local K-Mart.  I've never seen another copy.

Box.  The construction on this one was a little thinner than the usual Kre-O boxes.  More like a Lego box.  MSRP is $11.99 for 119 pieces.  Price per piece is $0.10.

Instructions & Stickers.

Parts 1.  We have a bunch of Wedge Plates, some Cheese Slopes, some Grille Tiles, those funky Kre-O ball joints, some brackets, a couple studless slopes, and that weird head combo.

Parts 2.  Rubber tires!  Hinge Plates of both varieties, a couple of those odd 2/3 Bricks, wheel hubs, axle plates, a two part steering wheel, new headlight bricks, and a couple of slopes.

Parts 3.  Bricks, plates, tiles, and a couple of 2x2 Slope w/Plate.


This Flier is just one of the things I built using this set.  I'm saving the rest for a Single Set Challenge post.

The Questions:
Can you build a frame, or frames, right away?  Yes.  (+5)
Is it below, at, or above the golden ratio?  At.  (0) (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: A (+15).  It's a good set, at a good price.  
I had a lot of fun building with this set.  With a slightly better price it could have had a perfect score.


  1. Is there a way to contact you for news? Do you like to report on PaB wall finds in other areas other than yours?

    1. What kind of news are we talking about? General Lego news I leave up to the Lego bloggers. I'm here to talk about Mobile Frame Zero.

    2. The Travis Bricks are in the PaB Wall in the Lego Store in Austin, TX. Not too sure if you report on that kind of news. I just remember reading your "Travis brick(?)" find a few months back. Still new to the LEGO jargon.

    3. There's plenty of room on the Hangar, the FB page, and the G+ page for announcements like that. Also more room to discuss them.

    4. Ok, my apologies. I just wasn't too sure if you reported on that information. Thanks for responding!
