Review: 75195 Microfighter Series 5 Ski Speeder vs. 1st Order Walker

With the start of a new year let's do a review of a new for 2018 set.  While I haven't reviewed any of the Microfighter sets previous to this -- they're in the backlog, believe me -- this series of Microfighters has changed things up somewhat.  While there are two normal single sets, there are two double sets in this release.  I bought this at Barnes & Noble just prior to Christmas.

Box.  MSRP is $19.99, this gives us a $0.09 Price per Piece.

Instructions 1.

Instructions 2.

Minifigs.  At least the Minifig Blasters are useful.

Parts 1.  Plates, Mod. Plates, Brackets, Slopes, Wedge Plates, Stud Shooters, and a Flag.

Parts 2.  I'm sure the only things
you are seeing are the black
Pneuma-Ts and the Bar Studs.

Parts 3.  Cross Plates in Black.
Plates, Mod. Plates, Brackets,
Slopes, a Brick, Stud Shooters,
and 3x3 Radar Dishes.

Parts 4.  Tooth Plates in Light Bley.
Plates, Mod. Plates, Slopes, Bar
Clips, a Bar Holder Clip, Levers
& Bases, Tiles, and Friction Pins.

Build.  Two Frames and two Stations.

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+).  Two Frames, two Stations, and tons of spare parts?  This is a Double Set Challenge writ large.
