Review: 41516 Mixel Tentro

I'm sorry this one's late.  I was a little wiped out after the work Christmas party.

Bag.  MSRP is $4.99 which gives us a Price per Piece of $0.07.


Parts.  There's a nice blend here, click hinges, mixel joints, cheese slopes, 1x1 round plates, 2x2 turntable, 1x2 hinge brick, etc.

Build.  I had the leg idea for this walker bouncing around my head for most of yesterday afternoon.  Stats: 2Rh (claws)/2Rd (laser pod)/1Y (sensor pod)/2W

The Questions:
Can you build something -- a frame, station, or starship -- right away?  Yes.  (+5)
Is it below, at, or above the golden ratio?  Below.  (+5)  
(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?  Yes.  (+5)
Score: +20 (A+).  Should we even be surprised at this point?  :-)
