Review: 60091 Deep Sea Starter Set

Another trip in the wayback machine, this set also dates back to 2015.

Box.  MSRP is $9.99 for a $0.11 Price per Piece.


Minifigs.  Three minifigs plus a shark.

Parts 1.  The R2 Droid Body is intriguing.

Parts 2.  Exo-force Robot Arms, Bar Plates, Clip Bars, Clip
Plate, Large Jumper, and Axle Pin are all really useful.

Build.  Hover Frame or IO
Frigate, it's essentially an
alternate build for the set.

The Questions:
Can you build something -- a frame, station, or starship -- right away?  Yes.  (+5)
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?  Yes.  (+5)
Score: +5 (B+).  Ah, a more typical score for a City set.
