Purity: Kre-O 85586 Transformers Battlechangers Ironhide Review

I finally tracked down the last of the Kre-O Battlechangers sets -- I think -- at Dollar General  recently.  Here's the review.

Box.  Base price was $12.00 at Dollar General, for a $0.16 Price per Piece.



Parts.  Mostly Dark Red and Dark Grey.  Plenty of Plates, some Bar Plates, Clip Plates, Axle Plates, and Ball Joint Plates.  A couple of Bricks and Technic Bricks, some Slopes.  Wheelguards, Lampholders, a Technic Friction Pin, a Kre-O version of the Exoforce Robot Arm, and Kreon-scale Sniper Rifles  round out the interesting stuff.

Build.  Station and Frame (2Rd+d8/2B).

The Questions:
Can you build something -- a frame, station, or starship -- right away?  
Yes.  (+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?  Yes.  (+5)
Score: +5 (B+).  The price I paid kills the score a little bit but this still has good parts.
