Review: 70790 Lord of Skull Spiders

Don't you just love that name?

Box.  MSRP was $14.99 for a $0.10 Price per Piece.


Parts 1.  Lots of Technic Lift Bars, several Technic Knob Wheels, some Hero Factory Armor, some Hero Factory Wide Curved Blade Weapons, some Axles, and the Skull Spider Mask.

Parts 2.  Axles, Technic Pins, Axle Connectors, Axle/Pin Connectors, a couple Technic Ball Joint w/Axle Hole, a couple Exo-Force Mechanical Arms, Barbs, Claws, and a Pneumatic Hose Connector w/Axle Connector, 

Build.  Yeah, that's ugly.

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).  While there are some interesting parts in this set, I don't think it's a good starting point for Frames.
