Review 30286 Christmas Tree Polybag

Since it is now Spring, let's start reviewing some older sets in an effort to clean out my backlog.  This is a Christmas polybag from 2015 that can still be found at some stores.

Bag.  MSRP at Target is $3.99 for a $0.06 Price per Piece.
MSRP at Toys'R'Us is $3.49 for a $0.05 Price per Piece.


Parts.  Plenty of Slopes and Plates, a 2x2 Round Brick, a 1x1 Brick, a 1x1 Cone, a Headlight Brick a Motor Brick, a few Jumpers, some Flower Plates, and a couple Stars.

Build.  An HVA for Intercept Orbit with its own stand.  Or some sort of weird Cubist re-imagining of a tree.

The Questions:
Can you build something -- a frame, station, starship, or HVA -- 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+).  Not a bad set, just limited in the color selection.
