Review: 41071 Elves Aira's Creative Workshop

Digging into the archives for an old set to review, mainly because I need the parts to complete a squad I'm working on.  Apparently this is the first Elves set I've reviewed.

Box.  MSRP is $9.99 for a $0.10 Price per Piece.



Parts 1.  Not really much of note here.

Parts 2.  The translucent Bricks are nice as is the 1x2 Plate w/Bars.
Minifig Wings are always useful as are the 1x3 Studless Slopes.

Parts 3.  Two Pneuma-Ts, two Taps,
four Lampholders, two Headlights,
one New Headlight, and assorted
Tiles, Plates, Slopes, and other bits.

Build.  Cover, Frame (2Ra+d8),
and a Station.

The Questions:
Can you build something -- a frame, station, or starship -- right away?  Yes.  (+5)
Is it below, at, or above the golden ratio?  At.  (0)  (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: +15 (A).  Not bad if you're looking for quick, simple builds.  Otherwise this is an accent piece set.
