Purity: DXW44 Mega Construx Dinotrux Ty Rux Tail Smash Review

Such a long name for a small set.  Let's start the week with a Mega Bloks review that calls back to a review I did last week.

Box.  MSRP is $9.99 for a Price per Piece of $0.27.  These sets are being marked down right now so you can find them for under MSRP.


Parts 1.  Just some tracks.

Parts 2.  The printed Eye Bricks attach to the head piece on the left.

Parts 3.  More Duplo-scale bricks here.

Parts 4.  These are the rest of the System-scale bricks in the set.

Build.  I included the Classic and the Chub to show you just how big this set is.

The Questions:
Can you build something -- a frame, station, or starship -- right away? Yes.  But it's closer to Terrain than a playable unit.  (0)
Is it below, at, or above the golden ratio?  Above. (-10) (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? No. (-5)
Score: -10 (C+).  This set may be more useful as the core for terrain pieces.
