Review: 30226 Police Helicopter Polybag

Let's wrap up the week with another Police polybag.

Bag.  $3.99 at Target.  Price per Piece of $0.08


Parts.  A fair amount of Clips, two lampholders, plenty of Trans-color pieces, my current favorite part -- 1x2 Modified Plate w/Bar (open ends) -- and my favorite part when I was a kid -- 1x2 Modified Plate w/ Handles -- some slopes, some antennas, some plates, and a big Trans-Clear Windscreen that may be useful as part of a station.

Minifig.  Another set of mostly useless pieces.

Frigate.  I'm pretty proud of this.

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?  No.  (-5)
Score: A- (+10).  I tried building a frame but it wasn't that great.  Further experimentation might yield some interesting creations.
