Purity: A6950 Transformers Scorn Street Chase Review

It's been a while since I've done a Kre-O set and I've got a bunch in storage, so let's get on with it.

Box.  MSRP is $11.99 which yields a $0.11 Price per Piece.

Instructions & Stickers.

Kreons.  We mostly have the usual here, except for
the two magnet pieces for the blue and grey Kreons.

Parts.  The parts that really stand out -- besides the dinosaur body and head -- are the gold ones in the lower right corner that look like flat versions of Brickarms U-Clips.  The are also the pieces you can't get in Lego; the 1x1 Double Bar Plate, 1x1 Double Clip Plate (horizontal), 2x2 Plate w/Bar (open ends), 1x1x2 Corrugated Round Brick, 1x1 Modified Round Brick (Gun Muzzle), and 2x2 Inverted Modified Tile w/Female Ball-Joint Receptacle .  Everything else is fairly similar to regular Lego pieces.
Build.  Der Skorpion?  I drew on techniques I used in my old SpAAT
frame to make this one.  I'm thinking 2Rh/2Rd/2W to start for stats.

The Questions:
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?  Yes.  (+5)
Score: +5 (B+).  Not a bad little set.  I've found it for $9.99 at TRU which brings the score to A+.

  1. I picked this up during the sale too just for the gun barrels really.
