Review: 30057 Anakin's Podracer Polybag

When it comes to sets, I tend to like polybags.  They're generally cheap, easy to get, and more than likely have some quickly useful parts.

30057 Anakin's Podracer does not stray from that script.

Here's the package.  It can still be found in a few stores.  I got this at Toys'R'Us for $3.98.

Two Travis bricks, one modified brick, six Technic Connectors, four 1x1 Round Bricks, two Tri-Axle Connectors, and a bunch of other small parts.  Very nice.

Now for the questions.
Can you build a frame, or frames, right away?  You'd have to really push it to make one.  (-5)
Is it below, at, or above the golden ratio?  Above ($0.11 per part).  (-10)
If you don't want build a frame right away, does it have parts you should be able to put into use elsewhere?  Yes.  (+5)
Does it have more than a handful of immediately useful parts?  Yes.  (+5)

Score: -5 (B-).  
If you grab this one during a BOGO50% sale it drops to $0.08 per part, and the score jumps to +10 (A-).
