Purity: 31143 Transformers Optimus Prime

I picked this up two weekends ago at the Boston Comic-Con.  I visited every toy dealer's table and managed to find this and two others that I hadn't reviewed yet.

Box.  It's marked $15 but I only paid $10.  MSRP was $7.99 for a $0.09 Price per Piece.



Parts 1.  We have four male and four female sections of Kre-O's version of the Mixel ball joint, the Optimus head and weird neck joint, plus the Grille Tiles.  Everything else is pretty standard.

Parts 2.  A number of Wheels and the Axles they mount on.  Plenty of Plates, some Slopes, a handful of 1x4 Hinge Plates, a couple of those funky brick + round brick SNOT pieces, and a handful of Wheel hubs.

Build.  I managed a quick Frame out of this.  I may try for an IO build later.  Stats: 2Rd+d8 (shoulder cannons) 2Rh (fists) 1B (heavy construction) 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?  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+).  A Kre-O Transformers set with the max score.  I may have now seen everything.
