Purity: 3743 Speedy Racecar Idea Builders Set

The last review of the new Mega Bloks Idea Builders sets.

Bag.  I paid $3.00 at Target for this.  The Price per Piece is $0.09.


Parts.  Yay, wheels.  Mostly plates, tiles, and slopes -- studless and
inverted -- in this set.  The "T" shaped plate is really interesting because
it has that half stud offset that you usually only get with Jumper Plates.

Build.  Okay, I know, another IO frigate.  What
can I say, they're easy with these kinds of sets.

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).  This one's a little sparse but does have some useful pieces.
