Purity: Hsanhe Set Review 1

I occasionally go food shopping in an Asian grocery store.  They have a little section for toys, knick-knacks, and other assorted things.  I found these at that store.  The company that makes them doesn't even seem to have a website.  You can find plenty of information on their sets, but not much on the company itself.

Box.  I paid $6.99 for this which gives us a $0.27 Price per Piece.


Parts.  A Translucent Yellow Travis Brick?!?  A Green Half Pin?  I'm already intrigued.  Unfortunately the green parts don't match the green color on the box.  A decent selection of parts though.

Build.  I banged this out in a couple of minutes.  Let's call it a 3P scale Brawler.

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-).  You should be able to find this for a lot less online.  That should improve the score significantly.
