Purity: CND24 Spongebob Squarepants Pickle Tank Attack Review

And now for something completely different.  It's been a while since I've been heretical -- over five and a half months -- so let's change the pace a little.

Box.  MSRP is $9.99, for a Price per Piece of $0.11.


"Minifigs".  You might be able to use those pink feet as greebles.

Parts.  Plenty of Green here.  The sandbags might be useful as part of cover.  The 1x2 Bricks w/Technic Pin along the left side are interesting in that they are only  two plates high.  The red 2x2x2&1/3 Round Brick w/Cutout is interesting too, as is the red 2x2 Double-Sided Plate on the right hand side.  The gun actually shoots, but the ball on the projectile doesn't fit into the Mixel Joints.  I also like the Slope Bricks -- regular and inverted --  in the lower right of the picture.  Oh, I also like the 2x2 Round "engine intake" Tiles.

Build.  An IO Frigate.  Stats: 2Ra+d8/1Y/1Gd8/2W.

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.  Probably better if you get it on sale though.
