Review: 30225 Seaplane Polybag

Another polybag review.

This was $4.99 at TRU.  Price per piece of $0.14

Instructions and minifig.

Parts.  Yeah, there's not much to look at here.

Here's the frame I tried to build.  Not all that great.

On the other hand, the small frigate I made for Alpha Bandit is pretty good.

The Questions:
Can you build a frame, or frames, right away?  You can build a starship for Alpha Bandit.  (+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?  No.  (-5)
Score: -5 (B-).  Not surprising.  It's a tiny set with not much to work with.
