Review: 41530 Mixels Meltus

Over the hump and into the home stretch, here's another Series 4 review for you.

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


Parts.  An abundance of regular Plates in this set.  Plenty of Jumper Plates and five other types of Modified Plates too.  Once again we've got a lot of different Slope pieces.  The 1x2 Hinge Bricks are good, as is the 1x2 Modified Brick w/Studs on 2 Sides, and the Mudguards are fun too. Only a few Mixel Joints though.

Build.  This one involved some interesting parts choices to build 
the arms.  I see the big eye as
a sensor dome with the cockpit underneath in the central body.

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+).  The Infernites tribe continues with another max score.
