I must thank Mantis King for allowing me to another of these. These reviews are really fun to do and I hope they can help people sort out sets available in Europe.
While searching for new parts I stumbled upon a toy sale at a local Minipreço store (they are common in Portugal, where I live). I found a couple of boxed sets made in China by Sluban at a discount of 50%, so I got them for around 5€ - 316 parts in total. This would put each part at around 0.02 Euros or less - a true bargain. Were they at full price they would still be at 0.03 or 0.04 Euros per part, which is nothing to sneeze at.
The first of these sets is a white car, with 152 parts inside the
box. These are mostly white, with some red and black.
It comes neatly packaged.
There is a set of instructions.
A minifig. (Editor comment: That neck post is so weird!)
Plates, bricks and wedge plates.
Mudguards, 1x12 plates, wings, a 4x4
plate and a 10 stud long mod. plate.
bricks, 1x1 bricks w/pin, cylinders,
two 1x2 Technic-like bricks, axles,
wheels, tires, a windshield, transparent
slopes and tiles, a seat, steering wheel
parts, and binoculars.
Slopes and tiles of several shapes and sizes. This
set is really diverse regarding the parts it offers.
with two support weapons systems
and a sensor array in the front, and
one carrier with two underslung
catapults, a radar and a point
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 set is really solid, and you can get two ships or a small Frame company at a very low price. The parts do fit together tightly, but one should be warned that there can be at least one defective part per box.
