Review: 5009416 Kai's Pod Polybag

This was a "free" giveaway this week with $30 Lego purchase at Toys'R'Us.

Bag.  MSRP is $5.99 for this at Toys'R'Us which gives us a $0.17 Price per Piece.



Pod, Outside.  It's slightly under seven Bricks tall.

Pod, Inside.  Laying flat, it's two Bricks tall.  You can attach five Bricks inside to make it a one-shot piece of Cover.

Parts.  Plates, Tiles, Brackets, Cheese Slopes, Grille Tiles, Apollo Studs, Clip Tiles, Clip Plate, and Minifig Sai and Katana.

Build. Nothing.

The Questions:
Can you build something -- a frame, station, or starship -- right away?  No.  (-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?  No.  (-5)
Score: -15 (C).  One of the worst scoring sets I've ever reviewed.
