Review: 30381 Star Wars Imperial TIE Fighter Polybag

After a trip to a third Walmart last week, I found this polybag.  It was in a diplay of other polybags and small Lego sets in the middle of an aisle in front of the toy section.

Bag.  I paid $3.97, for a $0.10 Price per Piece.


Parts.  Plates, Wedge Plates, Round Plates, Round Tiles, Brackets,
 Round Big Jumpers, Dishes, Technic Bricks, Mod. Plates,
2x2x2 Supports, a Boat Bumper, a Jumper, and a Technic Axle.

Build.  Frame & Station.  I tried
 to wrangle something decent out
of this but it would probably be
 better built as is for an IO Frigate.

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?  No.  (-5)
Score: +5 (B+).  I'd say the Star Wars tax strikes again but that isn't really the case here, is it?
