Box. I paid $10.99 for this at Newbury Comics.
Disassembled. The Beam Pike has to be a Double Melee, the head can be Defense or Spotting. The Beam Sword on the backpack could be a SSR, or Spotting. The connection on that one is pretty weak so you'll have to watch out for it.
Is it below, at, or above $10 per Frame? Above. (-5)
Is it a good size to use in a game? Yes. It's a little bigger than a Classic. (+5)
How many parts does it have to represent systems? Four. (+5)
Does it have enough parts you can remove to represent White Dice damage? Yes. (+5)
Score: +10 (A-). Not bad but not great.
