Review: 70331 Nexo Knights Ultimate Macy

Someone on the Facebook Group was interested in the minifigs for this line, so I grabbed the only affordable "Ultimates" set.

Box.  MSRP was $9.95 for a $0.10 Price per Piece.



Parts 1.  I see a new Slope piece in the top right corner, a new Minifig Shield below that, three new Trans-Color Shield Inserts in the lower left, plus one of the new Multi-Stud Shooters in the upper left.

Parts 2.  The Minifig Visor was in the second parts bag which I find weird.  The new crest is made from a new rubbery material.  There are more of those new Pyramid Slopes in this set along with some new Trans-Orange Bar Claws.  Everything else is pretty standard.

Build 2.  Or you could just go with the minifig.

The Questions:
Can you build something -- a frame, station, or starship -- right away?  Yes, barely.  (+5)
Is it below, at, or above the golden ratio?  At.  (0) 
(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: +15 (A).  Better, but apart from the new pieces I don't think there's much to recommend this set.
