Purity: Kre-O 80715 Transformers Optimus Prime

For the penultimate review of the Kre-O "transforming" Transformers sets, let's look at the Optimus Prime solo kit.

Box.  Base price was $7.99 at Marshall's, for a $0.09 Price per Piece.



Parts.  Plenty of Red and Blue.  Kreon pieces in the upper right corner.  Plenty of Clip Plates and Bar Plates, a handful of Plates, Tiles, Tires, Rims, and 2x1 Modified Plates w/Axle, a couple of 1x1 Round Bricks, Bar Clips, and Studless Slopes.  Also a couple of 1x2 Modified Technic Bricks w/Bar (closed ends).  One Flag and a Kreon-scale gun.

Build.  A relatively normal looking mech this time around, 2Rd/2B/1Y/2W.

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?  Yes.  (+5)
Score: +20 (A+).  Another licensed set getting a max score?  Inconceivable!
