Purity: Mega Bloks DYF22 Destiny EV-37 Racing Sparrow Review

We're at the end of the "trifecta" review week so let's nail down that Mega Construx review.

Box.  MSRP is $15.99 for a Price per Piece of $0.16.


Minifig 1.

Parts 1.  The 1x4 Brick w/Studs on both sides is useful.  As is that T Plate and the 1x2 Cheese Slope w/Studs.

Parts 2.  Bar Studs!  1x1 Bracket!  Mega Bloks had 'em first!

Parts 3.  The Printed Tile is nice, as
are the molded framework/wing
pieces.  The Slopes are good too.

Build.  Another IO Frigate
like the last Sparrow review.

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+).  I like the colors in these sets but what I'm really tempted by is that giant minifig.  I want to track down a bunch of them and put a squad together.
