Review: 70629 Ninjago Movie Piranha Attack

This is outside my piece count limitation for Lego reviews but it's another new for 2018 set and it looks like it has some good colors and parts so I'm gonna give it a shot.

Box.  MSRP is $19.99 for a $0.09 Price per Piece.

Instructions & Stickers.


Parts 1.  The Large Round Jumpers are neat, as are the Bar Bar Holders.

Parts 2.  The Bracket and the
Car Hoods are fun pieces.

Parts 3.  Some large Sand Blue pieces
here.  The 2x2 Round Bricks w/Pin
Holes are cool.  As is the Offset 1x4.

Parts 4.  More Sand Blue.  Rocket
Fins, Technic Bits, and 2x2
Tiles w/Center Hole are good.

Parts 5.  Apollo Studs, Large Round
Jumpers, Inverted Studless Slopes,
Barraki Eyes, and more Sand Blue.

Build.  A quick Frame and two,
one Hit pieces of Cover.

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+).  I'm sure a better builder could wring something more interesting from this set.
