Review: 41511 Mixel Flurr

This is the second of the blue Mixel sets for Series 2.

Bag.  MSRP is $4.99 for a Price per Piece of $0.11.


Parts.  A handful of Mixel joints and click hinges along with a generous handful of Cheese Slopes start us out.  The lightning bolt piece, bat wings, Technic Bricks w/Axle Hole, Clip Tiles, Tooth Tiles, and 1x2-1x2 brackets finish us out.  Not really too much here.

Build.  We've got a bit of a
Kaiju feel with this frame.

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?  Yes.  (+5)
Score: +5 (B+).  This is the lowest scoring Mixel set I've reviewed so far.
