Review: 30426 Ninjago Stealthy Swamp Airboat

I found this at Walmart recently.  I was surprised to see it on the shelf as I hadn't heard any rumors about its release.

Box.  I paid $3.49 for this at Walmart.  This yields a $0.08  Price per Piece.



Parts.  Jets, Stud Shooters, Ice Cream Cones, Bracket, 6x6 Inverted Radar Dish, and Printed 1x2 Cheese Slope are all interesting pieces.

Build.  A hover Frame or IO Frigate, you choose.  I know, it uses an "illegal" connection.

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-).  It has some interesting parts and might make for the start of a squad.
