Purity: A3371 Star Trek Jellyfish Review

We finish up Star Trek week with the Jellyfish set.

This one has a slightly higher piece count, but the same MSRP of $4.99.  Which means we're looking at a price per piece of $0.12.

Instructions.  No stickers this time.

Ooohh, lots of Trans-Blue pieces, one Trans-Clear bracket, two of those claws I like so much, a "motor" brick and a handful of other parts.

Those large spike pieces along the bottom look really interesting.

I built a small frame,

A small starship,
and a potential station all at the same time.

The Questions:
Can you build a frame, or frames, right away?  Yes.  (+5)
Is it below, at, or above the golden ratio?  At retail price, 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?  Seeing as I built three items simultaneously, yes..  (+5)
Score: +5 (B+).  It's a fun set.  As with the other Star Trek sets, it suffers from horrible pricing.  The part and color selection is better with this one.  I'll have to get more of this set before it disappears.
