Review: 30250 Ewar's Acro Fighter

This is not a new set, but it can still be found in the checkout lines at Target.

Bag.  I paid $3.99 for this set.  Price per Piece is $0.12, a little on the expensive side.  Which seems to be normal for Chima polybags.


Minifig.  there are actually useful
bits here.  The torso armor can be
used for some SNOT techniques.

Parts.  Not a lot.  My favorite  piece,
Modified Plate w/Bar (open ends), a
couple of 1x2 Cheese Slopes, Clip Tiles, Lamp Holders, and Minifig
Skis, along with a few others.

Creation.  A walker frame.  Stats: 2Rd (dorsal
guns)/1B (Chi jewel)/1G (extra legs)/2W

The Questions:
Can you build a frame, or frames, 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).  I built a quick frame on my lunch break.  You should also be able to put together a Frigate for IO with this set.
