Review: 70232 Saber-Tooth Tiger Tribe Pack

Part of the last wave of Chima sets, this is an army builder pack.

Box.  MSRP is $9.99 for a Price per Piece of $0.14.  Ouch.


Minifigs.  Enh.

Parts 1.  Cheese Slopes, Clip Plates (vert.), Lightsaber handles, 1x2 Technic Bricks, a Teeth Plate, 1x1 Round Plates, 1x1 and 2x2 Round Tiles, Minifig Claws, and a shooting Minifig Gun are just some of the fun parts here.

Parts 2.  Other people have done some interesting things with the banners from these sets.  The Skis are interesting too.

Build.  Nothing.  Whatever I tried came out looking like a pile of parts.

The Questions:
Can you build something -- a frame, station, or starship -- right away?  No.  (-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-).  Yeah, get these on sale or Clearance if you can.
