Review: 30187 Fast Car Polybag

Here's a review.

This one's a Target exclusive.  Regular price is $3.29, it's being clearanced for $1.64.  Price per piece at regular price is $0.06.


Parts.  Those 1x2 - 2x4 Brackets are pretty neat.  Other good parts are Cheese Slopes, 1x1 Cones, 1x2 Modified Plate w/2 Horizontal Clips, and the 1x2 Modified Plate w/Bar (Closed Ends).  The 2x2 trans-clear Slope Bricks might make good cockpits for mechs, too.

This can be an Alpha Bandit Micro-Frigate, or maybe some sort of flying frame for Rapid Attack.

The Questions:
Can you build a frame, or frames, 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?  Honestly, I don't think so.  (-5)

Score: A- (+10).  It's a good set, at a good price.  It just needs a little more in the way of fiddly bits to get a better score.


  1. Normally I'd pass on a set like this, but it does have a nice variety of useful red bits

    1. Yeah. I'm not sure if I'm going to get more of these even if they are $1.64 each.
