Review: 41512 Mixel Chomly

The third, and last, Series 2 Brown Mixel set.

Bag.  MSRP of $4.99 yields a PpP of $0.07.


Parts.  We have Mixel Joints, 1x2 Technic Bricks, New Headlight Bricks, 1x1 Bricks w/Vert. Clip, Cheese Slopes, Tooth Plates, 1x2 Plate w/Bar (open ends), Half Pins, Unstudded slopes, a 1x1-2x2 Bracket, and 1x1 Rund/Square plates.  Not a bad selection.

Build.  This one didn't really
flow for me, but I got it done.

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?  No.  (-5)
Score: +10 (A-).  While it does have a fair amount of Cheese Slopes, Spikes, 1x2 Plates, and 1x2 Unstudded Slopes, there's no more than two of any other part.  There aren't any sustainable quantities of parts.
