Review: 30256 Iceklaw's Bear Mech

This guy should be available in general retail.  I've heard of it being sold at Target back during Christmas.  I picked this up at Toys'R'Us.
Bag.  MSRP of $3.99 gets us a $0.10 Price per Piece.


Minifig.  The wolf helmet could make for an interesting mecha head.

Parts.  There are a bunch of good parts here.  Bar Claws,
2x2 Studless slopes, Mod. Plate w/Bar (open ends), 1x1 Round Bricks, Tooth Plates, 1x2 Mod. Bricks w/Axle Hole, Mixel Joints, etc.  There just isn't enough of these parts.

Build.  A stumpy, roughly 4P, mecha.  Stats: 2Rh+d8/1Y/1Gd8/2W.

The Questions:
Can you build something -- a frame, station, or starship -- right away?  Yes.  (+5)
Is it below, at, or above the golden ratio?  At.  (0)  
(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+).  This is the best scoring Chima polybag I've reviewed so far.
