Purity: Architek Star Rover Review

Continuing along with reviews of clone brick sets, I was alerted to the existence of this set by a post on the Facebook group.  As far as anyone can tell these sets are only available at Big Lots and through online wholesalers.

Box.  I paid $5.00 for a $0.03 Price per Piece.

Master Instructions.

Instructions 1
Instructions 3

Instructions 2

Instructions 6
Instructions 4
Instructions 5

Parts 1.  Orange Travis Brick, Headlight Bricks, and Tile Clips.

Parts 2.  Purple Tooth Plates,
Clip Plates, and Mod. Brick
2 x 1 x 1.3, Rounded.

Parts 3.  Nothing exotic here.

Parts 4.  Brown Tooth Plates

Parts 5.  Some nice Dark Red
pieces but nothing outrageous.

Parts 6.  Green Taps!

Build.  Two Frames and a 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+).  Plenty of interesting parts but it needs a little bit of filler to be better in my opinion.
