Purity: 30690 Transformers Prowl Review

Let's wrap up Kre-O Transformers week with the last, and largest, of the sets I picked up at the Boston Comic-Con.

Box.  MSRP is $16.99 for a $0.10 Price per Piece.  I paid the sticker price.




Parts 1.  Kre-O Ball Joints, Plates, Brackets, Slopes, a single Grille Tile, the funky Head and Mount, and Giant Fists that are similar to Bionicle Fists but have more attachment points.

Parts 2.  Nothing remarkable here, just Plates, Tiles, Bricks, and a handful of Slopes.

Parts 3.  Now things get interesting.  Nine 1x4 Hinge Plates in two colors. funky Brick + Round Brick SNOT pieces, Dual Wheel Arches, Slopes -- inverted & normal, a sprue with Kreon Weapons and Accessories, Tiles, Plates, Wheels, rubber Tires, Axles, Brackets, a couple of 2/3 Bricks, some SNOT Bricks, and the very interesting Bar w/ Double Female Connector.

Build.  Yeah, I know, it's horrible.  Yesterday was crappy and I wasn't feeling very creative.

The Questions:
Can you build something -- a frame, station, or starship -- right away?  
Yes.  (+5)
Is it below, at, or above the golden ratio?  At.  (0) (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: +15 (A).  Another decent score for a Kre-O Transformers set.
