Purity: Kre-O 82960 Transformers Shockwave Review

Let's finish out the week with another Kre-O set I picked up the same day as the Hound one.

Box.  I paid $7.99 for this at Marshall's, which gives us a $0.11 Price per Piece.



Parts.  All that Purple.  You can see the Kreon parts that form the core of the set in the upper right corner.  A 1x2 Mod. Plate w/ Double Bars (open ends) immediately catches my eye, plus the 2x2 Hinge Brick Top Plates in the upper center.  Then the Kre-O versions of Small Ball Joints in the bottom center and right.  Plenty of other Mod. Plates, Brackets, Plates, Bricks, Slopes, Tiles, Tires, and Wheel Hubs.

Build.  This one took a bit of work but I think I pulled something out.

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+).  Just a few more pieces could have given this a better score.
