Review: 30294 Cowler Dragon Polybag

Let's start out the week with a review of one of the new holiday polybags available at Target.

Bag.  MSRP is $3.99 for a $0.09 Price per Piece.


Minifig.  I like the Translucent Yellow.

Parts.  The Pale Greenish Yellow color is interesting.  The "A" frame Plate is a bit weird.  Besides that
it's a fairly standard collection of Plates, Modified Plates, Slopes,
Mixel Joints, and Clip Tiles.

Build.  Either a flying Frame or a Frigate for IO.  You choose.  :-)

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 a bad set, I just think it's better as a parts pack than the core for a build.
