Review: 41533 Mixels Globert

Let's finish up the Glowkies tribe and the week.

Bag.  MSRP is $4.99 for a $0.11 Price per Piece.


Parts.  We've got Mixel Joints, Bar Plates, Bar Claws, Slopes of multiple varieties, Tooth Plates, Clip Plates, Quarter Travises, funky Wings, a 4x4 Round Plate, a Glow-in-the-Dark Radar Dish, a 2x2 Round Tile, a couple of regular bricks, a 1x4 Plate, and one of the new 1x2-2x2 Brackets.  Some interesting parts, just not enough of any one thing.

Build.  This is an IO Frigate that
I bashed out in 5 minutes while I
was working on this review.  This
was a desperation build and involves
some "illegal" connections.  

The Questions:
Angle View
Can you build something -- a frame, station, or starship -- right away?
Yes.  (+5)
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: -5 (B-).  The lowest scoring Mixel set ever.
