Purity: 91765 Mega Bloks Hot Wheels Sharkruiser Review

If people were on the fence about this line, now might be the time to decide as they've gone on Clearance at my local Toys'R'Us at 1/2 off.  My local Kmart also has them on Clearance at $3.

Bag.  MSRP is 23 pieces for $3.99.  Which is $0.17 per piece.  Wow.  I picked this up on sale which brought the Price per Piece down to $0.09.


Parts.  Not really a lot here.  The wedge tiles are nice, as are
the Studless Inverted Slopes.  The Fin Tile is pretty neat too.

Build.  An IO Frigate.  Not that great,
though I think that two sets together might make something interesting.

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: -5 (B-).  The parts count and the price really killed the score on this.  The clearance price changes the score to +10 (A-).
