Purity: 3745 Battleship Idea Builders Set

The Mega Bloks site doesn't seem to have a listing for this line.  Well, it does have an Idea Builders line but it only has two sets and both of them are bigger than polybags.

Bag.  I paid $3.00 at Target for this.  The Price per Piece is $0.08.


Pieces.  We've got a couple of SNOT pieces here, a bunch of slopes including a 1x3 Double Inverted Slope and one 1x1 curved slope brick.  A few Bar Claws, one 1x1 Round Plate w/Bar, a T piece, a tiny antenna, a Modified Tile w/Bar, and a 1x2 Modified Slope all make for some interesting greebling.  Not to mention the majority of parts are in either Battleship Grey or Silver.  There is a 1x8 Plate missing from this picture though.  I discovered it while writing this review.

Creation.  Another Frigate for MFZ:IO.  Lets go with 2Ra/2Rs/1Y/1G/2W for stats.

The Questions:
Can you build a frame, or frames, right away?  Yes.  A Frigate for MFZ:IO is an easy creation.  (+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?  No.  (-5)
Score: A- (+10).  These sets look to be a lot of fun.  No minifigs and some interesting pieces make these a great bargain.
