Review: 41500 Mixel Flain

We continue with the Mixel Review Week.

Bag.  MSRP is $4.99 which is a Price per Piece of $0.09.


Parts.  There are a lot of Plates and Modified Plates in this set.  Only two ball joints though.  Two of the new tooth pieces as well.  Honestly, although it has two of my favorite piece -- 1x2 Plate w/Bar (open ends) -- I'm not that thrilled with the selection in this Mixel set.

A quick 4P Mech.  I'm statting this one up as 2Rd+d8 (arm missile 
pods) / 2Rh (flamethrowers) / 1B (back armor panels) / 2W.

The Questions:
Can you build a frame, or frames, right away?  Yes.  (+5)
Is it below, at, or above the golden ratio?  Below.  (+5) (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.  Barely.  (+5)

Score: +20 (A+).  We max out the score on a Mixel set but, this one barely squeaks through.
