Purity: A0794 Battle Boat Review

This one has been out for a while.  It's finally dropped down to an affordable price with TRU's Clearance sale.

Bag.  Normal retail is $4.99, and that gives us a price per piece of $0.19.  Which explains why I waited so long to buy one.


Parts.  There's not really much here.  Those funky brick + round brick SNOT pieces in black are nice.  I also like the two piece steering wheel.  The sci-fi bazooka could also come in handy.

There's a poster included that really pads out the polybag.



Here's a quick IO Frigate I built.  This is about the most you're going to get out of this set.  It does come with its own stand though!

The Questions:
Can you build a frame, or frames, right away?  Yes.  (+5)
Is it below, at, or above the golden ratio?  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: B- (-5).  Buy this one if you want the parts.  Otherwise it really doesn't have much to recommend.  It's currently on 60% Clearance at Toys'R'Us so you should be able to get it for a decent price.
