Review: 30271 Mikey's Mini-Shellraiser Polybag

Between Hallowe'en and Christmas, a fair amount of polybags tend to be released onto the retail market.

Bag.  I purchased this for $4.99 at Toys'R'Us.  It has 47
pieces.  Price per Piece is $0.11, which is not that great.



Parts.  Not really much here.  I see
two Taps, two Lampholders, two 
double horizontal clip plates,
and a few other useful pieces.

Build.  Hey!  A frame this time!  :-)

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
