Review: 30274 AT-DP Polybag

For the month of January this set is a free give-away with purchase of a Star Wars set at the Lego store.  There are rumors it is sold out and that Lego will not be making any more.  So I suggest you hurry and track this down if you want it.

Bag.  MSRP is $4.99 which is a $0.08 Price per Piece.


Parts.  There are a fair amount of plates  but almost half of them are Hinge plates.  There are a couple of SNOT bricks and some Technic pieces, along with a Mixel ball joint for the chin turret.  This is a good selection and should provide a good starting point for people.

Build.  I managed a Frame
and a Station out of this set.

The Questions:
Can you build something -- a frame, station, or starship -- 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.  (+5)
Score: +20 (A+).  Another Star Wars set getting the top score.  Unfortunately it has limited availability.
