Purity: Mega Bloks DTF91 Kubro Spock

Let's finish out Mega Bloks week with something a little different.

Box.  MSRP is $14.99 which is a Price per Piece of $0.11.


Parts 1.  In the lower left corner is
an Inverted 1x2 Cheese Slope.

Parts 2.  The Black 1x2x2 Slopes w/Step are pretty interesting.

Parts 3.  The 2x4 Ziggurat Brick,
1x3 Inverted Double Slope, Angled Slopes w/Studs, Angled
Slopes w/Studs & Pin, and 1x2
Slopes w/Hole are all interesting.

Parts 4.  Double Sided
Plates and Apollo Studs!

Parts 5.  The Grey Half Moon pieces
are supposed to be Spock's Eyelids.

Build.  I managed an IO frigate after some time spent looking at the parts.

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?  Yes.  (+5)
Score: +5 (B+).  This set has some really interesting pieces, but I feel that you'd need at least two of them to make something really good from it.
