Review: 70125 Chima Gorilla Legend Beast

Let's start out the Chima Legend Beast reviews with the Gorilla.

Box.  MSRP is $9.99 for a $0.09 Price per Piece.


Stickers and ??? card.


Parts 1.  Some Mixel Joints, my favorite part the 1x2 Mod. Plate w/Vert. Bar, Plates, Exo-Force Robot Arms, Brackets, Slopes, and 1x1 Round Tiles.

Parts 2.  More Mixel Joints, Log Bricks, Slopes, Bionicle Ball Joints, Brackets, Plates, A Clip Plate, and some Bar Plates, 

Build 1.  My first attempt at a build from this set.

Build 2.  I also managed two other Frames out of this kit that can't
be made at the same time as Build 1.

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+).  A great score, but the somewhat monochromatic nature of the parts colors may limit this set's usefulness.
