Purity: A4911 Cityville Offroad Runner Review

It's been a while since I've been heretical, so let's go Kre-O again.  :-)

Package.  A MSRP of $3.99 for 37 pieces gives us a price per piece of $0.11.

Instructions, Stickers, & Paperwork.

Micro-Kreons.  I like the head on the orange one.  The hair piece on the cyborg is kinda interesting too.

Parts.  The 1x1-1x3 brackets in the lower part of the picture are the only really interesting bits in this set.  The mono-body piece is a little disappointing.

A quick creation to see what could be built.  A micro-Frigate for IO, since it's only half the normal size limit.  MFZ:IO Stats: 2Rd+d8 (fore cannons) /1Y (side antenna)/1G/2W.

The Questions:
Can you build a frame, or frames, right away?  Yes.  I made an IO Frigate.  (+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).  Yeah, it's a parts kit.
