Purity: 80717 Kre-O Transformers Starscream

I got lucky a several weeks ago when I was out bargain hunting and found the last Kre-O Transformers Battle Changer set.

Box.  Base price was $5.99 at Marshall's, for a $0.08 Price per Piece.



Parts.  There's a nice selection here.  Only a handful of singular parts, most have at least two of each.  As usual the Kreon bits are in the upper left corner.  The Double Bar Plate (open ends) is still really interesting as are the 1x1Round w/Bar.  Lots of Plates, Modified Plates, Slopes, Ball Joints, and other pieces.

Build.  I went old school this time and built something close to one of my Crab Mecha, and a little micro scanner unit. Stats: 2Ra+d8 (long guns) 1G (extra legs) 1Y (bot) 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!
