Review: 40077 Geoffrey Polybag

I've had this set sitting around in my "To Do" pile for about two years.

Bag.  MSRP is $4.99 from Toys'R'Us, which gives us a $0.06 Price per Piece.


Parts.  That's a lot of Yellow.  I see some Clip Plates, Bar Plates, Slopes, Headlight Bricks, plenty of 1x1 Bricks, some small Radar Dishes, Jumper Plates, Tiles, regular Plates, a Round 8x8 Tile, a couple of Cones, and some Round Plant Bricks w/Leaves.  That's a pretty wide cross-section of parts.

Build.  A small Frame (2Rd+d8/ 2B/2W) with some terrain.

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+).  A TRU exclusive gets the top score.  Now I really have seen it all.
