Review: 30279 Kylo Ren Shuttle Polybag

This was originally a giveaway for pre-ordering a video game.  It's now available in the checkout lanes at Target.

Bag.  I paid $3.49 for this which gives us a $0.08 Price per Piece.


Parts.  Lots of Plates here -- of multiple varieties -- some Tiles, a couple of 1x1 Round Bricks, a couple of Technic Bricks w/Axle Hole, a Technic Axle, a few Slopes, a couple Minifig Binoculars, and a Flag.

Build.  An IO Frigate, which should be no surprise.  I'll say it has 2Ra/2Y/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?  No.  (-5)
Score: +10 (A-).  Not a bad set, it just needs more parts.
