Review: 41514 Mixel Jawg

Here's the second of the Brown Mixels from Series 2.

Bag.  MSRP is $4.99 for a Price per Piece of $0.08.


Parts.  A handful of plates, a bunch of Clip Tiles and Cheese Slopes, a few of those 1x2 Bricks w/2 Studs on 1 Side, 1x2 Clip Plates (vertical), 1x2 Plate wBar (closed ends), a Technic Brick, and two 1x4 Plate w/Offset Ends, 1x2 Slope Bricks, and Cheese Slope w/Plate are what I see for interestiing parts.

Build.  This set made me work for it.  I
tried to build a Frame from the start
but it wasn't happening.  I eventually
switched up to an IO Frigate then
went back and made a Frame.

Here's the frame.  It's obviously 4P.  I think it kind of looks like a Minion from the "Despicable Me" movies.

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 Clip Tiles and Cheese Slopes, they're all in varying shades of brown and there aren't plentiful quantities of other useful pieces.
