Review: 30250 Razcal's Double-Crosser Polybag

Once again, beaten to the punch by Dark Cloud Blogs.  :-)

Bag.  Purchased for $3.99 at 5 Below which yields a price per piece of $0.11.

Instructions & Minifig.

Parts.  Wow, that is a whole lotta nothin'.  The half brackets are good, jumpers always come in handy, and you can never have too many clip plates.  I'm not a real big fan of wheels though.

Okay, I managed to pull something out of the pile of parts.
It's a Frigate for IO.  I'd stat it up as 2Ra+d8/1Y/1G/2W.
It's a little thin but will work if you're in a bind.

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.

  1. That's a tricky use of the minifig's chestpiece! Kudos on that. A slick frigate design to boot.
