Purity: Arcade Classics Centipede Review

There are three of these Arcade Classics sets from "The Bridge Direct".  The only real reference to them to be found online is a Youtube video.

Box I paid $9.99 at Toys'R'Us for a $0.06 Price per Piece.


Parts 1.  Those 1x1-1x1 Brackets are neat, as are the 1x1 Round Bricks w/Studs on side.  Let's not forget the Minifig Hand-like Bar Clips.

Parts 2.  Plenty of Slopes, Plates, and Bricks.  Minifig Shields are nice.

Parts 3.  Slopes, Clip Plates, and Bar Plates

Build.  Two Soldier Frames, two
Stations, and a 1 Hit piece of Cover.

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+).  This makes a great starter set.

Oh, by the way, this is my 1,000th post.
