Review: 76101 Outrider Dropship Attack

Now that I've finally seen Avengers: Infinity War I feel comfortable posting this review.  Okay, I generally don't go in for minifig heavy sets.  But the Outriders looked interesting so I gave it a try.  Also, this is going for less than retail at Walmart so that was a strong selling point too.

Box.  I paid $1244, for a $0.10 Price per Piece.

Instructions & Stickers.

Minifigs 1.

Minifigs 2.  Those Outrider Neck Bracket pieces are interesting.
Not what I thought they might
be, but interesting.

Parts 1.  These were loose in the box.

Parts 2.  Plates, Wedge Plates, Minifig Stud Shooters, Tiles, Bricks w/Studs on Side, and some new Jewel pieces. 

Parts 3.  Teal pieces!  Bar Plates, Lampholders, Tiles, Slopes,
Plates, Clip Bar Holders, Clip Plates, Nipples, and Flags.

Build.  A Frame (2Rd+d8) with two Spotting
drones, a Station, 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?  At.  (0)  (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: +15 (A).  Not a bad set if you can get it at the Walmart price.
