Review: 76141 Thanos Mech

I found this in Kohl's after I went back for more Spider-Man Mech sets.  This is the third of three new sets for 2020 that feature "small" mecha for Marvel characters.

Box.  I paid $9.99 for this which gives a $0.07 Price per Piece.

Instructions and stickers.


Parts 1.  Cockpit Shell, Plates, Technic Plate, Slopes,
Inverted Tiles, Tiles, Ball Joints, Click Hinge Plate, Ingot,
Slopes w/Cutout, Clip Plates, Panel, Friction Pins,
Brackets, Printed Pentagonal Tile, and Technic Brick.

Parts 2.  Slopes, Axle Plate, Ball
Joint Plates, Bar Plate, Brackets,
Tiles, Exo-Force Arms, and Plates.

Parts 3.  Padlocks, Technic Plates, Inverted
Tiles, Round Tiles, Slopes, Plates, Bar
Plate, Dish, Ball Joints, Bar Studs, Round
Jumpers, Jumper, Headlight Bricks, 1x2x1.3 Rounded Brick,  and Clip Plates,

Build.  Two Frames and a Station.

The Questions:
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+).  Just as good as the Iron Man mech, lots of Gold pieces.
