Review: 41517 Mixel Balk

This is a good one to start up with after a two week break from reviewing the Series 2 Mixel sets. {insert baseball reference here}.

Bag.  MSRP is $4.99 for a Price per Piece of $0.07.


Parts.  Hinge plates, Mixel joints, 1x1 round tiles, Tooth plates, Bar
Holders w/Clip, Vertical Clip plates, and Cheese Slopes, oh my.

Build.  This frame looks like
something from Battletech got
some sort of Cthuloid infection.

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+).  Orange and black are always a good combo.
