Review: 30276 First Order Special Forces TIE Fighter Polybag

Well, that's a long title for a small set.  :-)  This was a "free giveaway" at Target several weeks ago.

Bag.  MSRP was $3.99 for a $0.10 Price per Piece


Parts.  Plenty of Wedge Plates, 2x2 Round Plates, and Grille Tiles.  I also see a couple Technic Plates, and 4x4 Plates w/Cutout, 1x2-2x2 Brackets, Minifig Utensil, Nozzles, Technic Gears, 1x1 Round Plates, and 1x2 Technic Bricks w/Axle Hole.  Rounding it out we have an Axle 8, 1x2 Clip Plate, and a 2x2 Trans-Clear Radar Dish w/Print.

Build.  We've got a walking gun emplacement, 2Rd+d8/2B/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?  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).  Not a bad score and the set has some interesting parts.
