Purity: Mega Bloks DYG82 Bold Box of Bricks Review

Last year or so, Mega Bloks started releasing Open Ended Building sets, kinda like those old school Lego sets that were just parts with no main design intended.  I only ever saw them at TJX stores so I'm not sure if they had a wider release than that.

Box.  No MSRP available.  I paid $3.99 at Marshall's for this, which gives us a $0.07 Price per Piece.


Parts.  Plenty of Slopes, Bricks and Plates.
Some Headlight Bricks and Apollo Studs.

Build. A quick, and very simple, Frame.

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+).  I like the colors in this set but the parts selection is a little disappointing.
