Purity: 91766 Mega Bloks Hot Wheels Dragster Review

I've been wanting to review this polybag line for a while.  The price has deterred me 'til this point.

Bag.  MSRP is 28 pieces for $3.99.  Which is $0.14 per piece.  Ouch.  I picked this up on sale which brought the Price per Piece down to $0.10.


Parts.  Lots of Lime Green in this set.  I do like the quarter sphere piece.  The SNOT hexagons are nice too.  The angled tiles, pin axles, and translucent wheels all possess the potential for fun.  I'm looking forward to experimenting with the dual claw bars too.

Build.  Once again, it's easy to build an
IO Frigate from the pieces for a racecar.

The Questions:
Can you build something -- a frame, station, or starship -- right away?  Yes.  (+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.  (+5)
Does it have more than a handful of immediately useful parts?  No.  (-5)
Score: B- (-5).  Not bad for a licensed set, but not that great either
.  If you buy this on sale like I did, the score becomes B+ (+5).


  1. Me too.

    I really wish Mega Blocks didn't attach their sprues through the studs. That being said, I like a lot of the pieces in this set. Those wheels could have all sorts of great uses.

    1. Thanks.

      I'm not sure I care too much about the sprue marks on the studs. I will agree the wheels look really cool.
