Purity: Kre-O A6955 Grimlock Street Attack Review

One of the older Kre-O Transformer sets I finally got around to reviewing.

Box.  MSRP is $19.99 for a $0.10 Price per Piece.




Parts 1.  The T Rex head.

Parts 2.  Lots of Ball Joint Bricks, Slopes, and Modified Bricks.  Some regular Bricks and Plates too.

Parts 3.  Here's all the fiddly bits we like.  Smaller Ball Joint Plates, Double Sided Plates, Bar Claws, even regular 1x1 Round Bricks!  Plenty of Slopes, Plates, and Barbs too.

Parts 4.  Two nice Arch pieces, two nice Curved Slope roof pieces, along with the three prong Ball Joint piece, and the Inverted Slope pieces all catch my eye.

Build.  I managed two frames out of this one and some terrain.  The one on the left is (2Rd+d8/1B/1G/2W) the one on the right is a Soldier loadout.

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).  An excellent score for a Licensed set.  A double handful of more pieces and it would have made the max score.

  1. Those are some pretty respectable frames out of a set like this! Reasonable Price Per Piece too.
