Review: 75160 Star Wars Microfighter Series 4 U-Wing

Here's a Microfighter review for Monday morning.

Box.  MSRP is $9.99 for a $0.09 Price per Piece



Parts 1.  Plates, Slopes, Cones, Technic Pins, Mod. Plates w/Pin Hole, Technic Link Cylinders, Technic Bushings, Round Tiles,Grille Tile, and Minfig Blaster.

Parts 2.  Minifig Heads,Plates, Hinge Plates, Stud Shooters, Brackets, Inverted Slopes, and a Large Jumper.

Build.  Weird Walker (2Rd+d8/1G/1Y)

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 thought this was going to be a cool set but, there just aren't enough SNOT pieces for my taste.  Two Friction Pins would have changed everything about this set.
