Purity: 10875 Sick Bricks 3-in-1 Power Up Playset Review

These sets were around for a while at Target.  They always seemed to be overpriced for what they offered, even if there was an online component involved.  This showed up at 5Below recently at a better price point so I decided to give it a look.

Box.  I paid $5.00 for a $0.09 Price per Piece.  The box lists 57 pieces but even counting the background, carrying case, and instructions there's only 55.



Background.  Might be fun to
use for pictures at some point.

Carrying Case.  Useful.

Parts.  A lot of printed pieces here.  The Translucent quarter circle Tiles are neat as are the "tube" pieces.  Clip Plates and Bar Plates are useful.

Build.  Station.

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+).  The score for this set is based on the price I paid for it, rather than the MSRP.
