Purity: A6951 Transformers Cell Block Breakout Review

Let's finish out the week with something interesting.

Box.  MSRP of $16.99 gives us a $0.13 Price per Piece.



Kreons.  The usual.

Parts 1.  I'm not sure what I'm going to do with those heads.  The mylar wings might be good for terrain, the Trans-Clear pieces too.

Parts 2.  Those "X" shaped pieces in the lower left have my attention.

Parts 3.  Here's the meat of the set.  A bunch of ball joints, the Large Claw pieces I like so much, a bunch of Grille Tiles, 1x1 Round Plates, a couple Double Sided 1x1 Round Plates, a bunch of Small Claws, and a Kre-O Bar Claw.

Build 1.  Frame.

Build 2.  Frame.

Build 3.  Station.

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?  Yes.  (+5)
Score: +5 (B+).  Not a bad little set.  I've found it for $14.98 at TRU which might be a little easier to swallow.
