Review: 30264 Frax's Phoenix Flyer Polybag

Between Hallowe'en and Christmas, a fair amount of polybags tend to be released onto the retail market.

Bag.  I purchased this for $3.99 at Target.  It has 32 pieces.  Price per Piece is $0.13, which is not that great.


Minifig.  I managed to incorporate some of these parts into the build.

Parts.  That's an interesting
spread of colors and pieces.
There just needs to be more.

Build.  IO Frigate.  I like this one.  It's evocative.

The Questions:
Can you build something -- a frame, station, or starship -- right away?  Yes.  
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).  Again, when a Star Wars set has a better
 Price Per Piece ratio, then you're in trouble.
