MSRP is $9,99 for 51 pieces. Price per Piece is $0.20, which is not good. The can is fairly sturdy and re-usable which I always like.
Parts 1. When I looked at the "actual size" picture on the side of the can and the relatively low piece count, this is what I feared.
Parts 2. Parts like this are great for large scale greebling, but they drive up the cost of the set.
Parts 4. I really love those
angled tailplane/wing pieces.
Creations. Another IO Frigate. This
one's really swooshable though.
Can you build a frame, or frames, right away? Yes.
I put together an IO Frigate and HVA. (+5)
Is it below, at, or above the golden ratio? 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, but not very many. (+5)
Does it have more than a handful of immediately useful parts? No. (-5)
Score: B- (-5). Like most licensed sets, this one gets hamstrung by the cost. Getting it on Clearance like I did raises the score to a B+.
