Purity: Mega Bloks FNL90 Shellder Pokeball Review

I found this in a Series 6 of the Pokeball sidekick display.  Figured I'd grab it and see if the color matches the Ekans pokeball.  (It  does, in case you're curious.)

Box.  MSRP is $6.99 for a $0.22 Price per Piece.

Instructions and rubber tongue piece.

Parts 1.  Those flanged 2x2 Plates
 are cool, as are the U-Clips.

Parts 2.  Cheese Slopes w/
Stud!  Large Jumper!  1x1
Round Plate w/Horizontal Clip!

Build.  It's put together with a really interesting technique.

Size Comparison.  A little blurry but you can see it's the same size as a Classic.

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?  No.  (-5)
Score: -5 (B-).  This has some interesting parts in a cool color.  Worth getting on sale in my opinion.
