Review: 75002 AT-RT

This set was introduced in 2013 and looks to be on the way out.  I've had it for a while and been meaning to review it.  No better time than now.

Box.  MSRP is $19.99.  That gives us a
Price per Piece of $0.09, which is great
for a licensed set.

Instructions & Stickers.  This is the
first time I've seen an instruction
book oriented the long way.

Minifigs.  You can actually use the Droid for parts.

Parts 1.  These are the parts to assemble the Droideka.

Parts 2.  You have half a Ruler here.

Parts 3.  And even more parts here.

Build.  I just made the Droideka because I was in a
hurry.  You can see it's a little large for 4P scale.

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: A+ (+20).  Another Star Wars set gets the top score.  Inconceivable.  :-)
