Review: 41534 Mixels Vampos

We start the Mixels Series 4 review cycle with one of the Glowkies tribe.

Bag.  MSRP is $4.99 for a Price per Piece of $0.09.


Parts.  We get our first Glow-in-the-Dark pieces with some of the Cheese Slopes in this set.  Plenty of Brackets and Mixel Joints too.  A new 1x2 Modified Plate w/Bar (closed, both ends) also makes its debut with this Series.  The 1x2 Modified Brick w/2 Side Studs and 1x1 Mod. Brick w/Bar (open ends) are also good parts.

Build.  I call this the Vampire Frigate.
It has plenty of attachment points.

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 maxed out Mixel.
