Review: 40090 Halloween Bat

I came across this the other day while shopping for some other Lego sets.

Box.  $4.99 at Toys'R'Us for a $0.03 Price per Piece.


Parts 1.  A fair amount of Plates here, along with a few Bricks, Tiles, Slopes -- regular & Inverted -- some 1x2 Mod. Bricks w/Studs on side, a 1x2-2x4 Bracket, some 1x2 Vert. Clip Plates, and a couple Mod. Plate 2x2x2/3 w/2 Studs on Side.

Parts 2.  Once again we have a lot of Plates, but we also have
Tooth Plates, Bar Plates, Clip Plates, Flower Plates, Cheese
Slopes, Headlight Bricks, Clip Bricks, and Eye Tiles.

Build.  A walker frame. (2Rd+d8/1G/1Y/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+).  Run, don't walk, to get this set.  It's a seasonal set, and at that PpP it's a steal.
