Review: 75162 Star Wars Microfighter Series 4 Y-Wing

I needed the Two Bar Plate piece -- for my SR-1 Space Siren frames -- to finish out a squad I'm working on, so I dug this out of my backlog pile.

Box.  MSRP was $9.99 for a $0.11 Price per Piece.



Parts 1.  Plates, Bracket, Pin Bars, Round Bricks
w/Pinhole, Domes, Plate w/Bars, Axle w/Stop,
Brick w/Studs on Side, Wedge Plate, Plates w/
Pinhole, Liftarms, Slopes, Technic Bricks, and
 Corrugated Bricks.

Parts 2.  Round Plates, Plate w/Door Flange, Plates, Grille Tiles, Slopes, Minifig Telescopes, Cones, Friction Pins, Clip Tiles, Jumpers, and Minifig Blaster.

Build.  2Rd+d8 Frame.

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+).  A good selection of parts hampered by the Star Wars tax.
