Review: 41542 Mixels Spugg

I suppose I should start the Series 5 Mixel reviews before they disappear off the shelves.  :-)

Bag.  MSRP is $4.99 for a $0.10 Price per Piece.


Parts.  We have a couple new parts here.  The 2x2 Round Jumper Plate in the lower left and the 3L Technic Pin w/1L Axle in the lower right.  These go along with the Mixel Joints, Slopes, 1x2 Technic Bricks, Quarter Travis Bricks, Plates, Tooth Plates (some Transparent Orange even), 2x2 Plate w/Pin (on bottom), 1x2 Clip Plates, Barbs, Red Spike, and 1x2 Bricks w/Studs on side.

Build.  A quick Frame build here.  Stats: 2Rd + d8
(arm guns) 1B (armored torso) 1Y (sensor pod) 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?  At.  (0)
(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: +15 (A).  Another one for the second best Mixel pile.
