Review: 30166 Robin & Redbird Cycle Polybag

This was available from Toys'R'Us back in 2013 as a "free with purchase" giveaway.

Bag.  MSRP is $4.99 for a $0.13 Price per Piece.

Instructions and Minifig.

Parts.  Not a lot here.  Several Technic Bricks w/Axle Hole, Axles,
Bushings, and Axle Holders, but not much of anything else.

Build 1.  I originally had a
couple of tiny builds when I
first tried working on this set.

Build 2.  I later changed it to an IO Frigate.

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?  No.  (-5)
Score: -5 (B-).  Completely not worth it, but I'm a Robin fan so I had to have it anyway.
