Review: 41528 Mixels Niksput

Not the one I had intended on starting with, but it was the first one I grabbed out of the bag.

Bag.  MSRP is $4.99 for a $0.08 Price per Piece.


Parts.  Plenty of Mixel Joints, oohh Lime 1x1 Round Tiles, a few Tooth Plates, a couple of Quarter Travis bricks, some Grille Tiles, my second fave part 2x1 Mod. Plate w/Bar (open ends), plenty of Slopes in five different varieties, a Tail Fin, a Clear 2x2 Dome, a Fire Piece, some Tiles and Plates, a White Mod. Plate 2x2x2/3 w/2 Studs on Side, and a Bar Holder w/Clip all look good.

Build.  This set gets you roughly
50% of the way towards building
one of my T.U.R.D. Bots.

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+).  Hey!  Back on the right track.  I think I'm going to run out and buy a bunch more of these.
