Review: 40228 Geoffrey &Friends

This set seems to be regarded as a little weird in the Lego community.  It's an exclusive set to TRU.

Box.  I paid $9.99 for this at Toys'R'Us.  That's a $0.08 Price per Piece.


Stickers.  These look fun.


Parts 1.  Plenty of parts in what Bricklink calls Bright Light Orange.  A good amount of Ball Joints, several 1x2 Bricks W/2 Studs on 1 Side, plenty of Plates, Slopes, and Tiles.

Parts 2. Clip Plates, Bar Plates, Ball Joints, Slopes, Plates, Cones, and New Headlight Bricks.

Build.  A quick, 5 minute, chicken walker.  2Rd+d8/1Y/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?  Yes.  (+5)
Score: +20 (A+).  That's kind of surprising for a licensed, TRU exclusive set.
