Purity: 91740 Mega Bloks Hot Wheels Twinduction Review

I bought a few of these Mega Bloks Hot Wheels sets on Clearance right after Hallowe'en.  I wasn't expecting them to be marked down but I had been wondering about them and grabbed them when I saw the price.

Can.  MSRP is $9.99 for 63 pieces.  Price per Piece is $0.16, which is
not good.  The can is fairly sturdy and re-usable which I always like.


Parts 1.  The mono-body, one more time.

Parts 2.  Those exhaust vents look interesting.

Parts 3.  Those exhaust pipes will make good weapons or sensor
probes.  the Black 1x4 Modified Plate will be good for greebling.

Parts 4.  there are some interesting Modified Bricks and
Tiles in this set of parts, along with regular Plates and Tiles.
It should be fun to experiment with those "flame" Tiles.

Build.  Another IO Frigate.

The Questions:
Can you build a frame, or frames, right away?  Yes.  Another cop-out IO Frigate.  :-)  (+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 A-.
