Review: 30293 Kai's Drifter

Let's finish out Ninjago week with a set was being given away as a birthday promotional at a Lego store near me.

Bag.  Brickset doesn't even have a MSRP, so I'm going to have to make one up.  $3.99 sounds good, for a $0.09 Price per Piece.



Parts.  Once again, there's not a lot here. Plates, a couple of Wedge Plates, a Slope, a couple of Cheese Grater Slopes, a Bracket, a couple Boat Bumpers, several Clip Tiles, a 1x2 Mod. Brick w/2 Pins, a couple of 1x4 Mod. Bricks w/ Studs on side.  We also have a couple of Stud Shooters, my first I believe, with an extra trigger.

Build.  An IO Frigate.

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?  No.  (-5)
Score: +10 (A-).  Not bad.  Unfortunately, without a MSRP, we can't be sure of the score.
