Purity: 3742 Offshore Racer Idea Builders Set

Another Idea Builders set.  Next to last of the four sets I bought.

Bag.  I paid $3.00 at Target for this.  The Price per Piece is $0.08.


Parts.  There are a lot of plates and inverted slopes in this set.  The pieces that most intrigue me are the two black ones in the lower left corner, 1x2 multi-slope bricks with studs on all three faces.  Those pieces look to be great for SNOT work.

Creation.  Another IO Frigate.
Stats: 2Ra+d8/1Y/1G/2W.

The Questions:
Can you build a frame, or frames, right away?  Yes.  A Frigate for MFZ:IO, again.  (+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).  These sets look to be a lot of fun.  No minifigs and some interesting pieces make these a great bargain.
