Minifigs. That Stud Shooter
Crossbow is interesting.
Parts 1. These were loose in the box.
Parts 3. The smaller bits in this lot. In the lower right you see the 1x1 Pyramid Slopes people have been talking about since news of these sets broke. Nothing else new, but we do have a decent selection of useful parts.
Build. A very clunky IO Frigate. 2Ra/2B/1G/2W.
Can you build something -- a frame, station, or starship -- right away? Yes, barely. (+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+). Not that great. Hopefully the rest of the line scores higher.
