Review: 70665 Ninjago The Samurai Mech

I stopped into my local Lego store on New Year's Day and found this on the shelf.  I bought it immediately and went home to write a review.

Box.  I paid $14.99, for a $0.10 Price per Piece.

Instructions & Stickers.


Parts 1.  Plates, Slopes, Wedge Plates, Mudguards, Ball Joints, Stud Shooters, Bar Plates, Pin Hole Plates, a Tile, and a Helicopter Blade.

Parts 2.  Ball Joints, Wedge Plates, Brackets, Clip Plates, Plates, Slopes, Flags, Corner Bricks, Bar Holder w/Bar, Bar, Technic Pins w/Stop Bush, Exo-Force Arms, Hinge Bricks, Tile, LArge Round Jumper, and a Boat Bumper.

Parts 3.  Pneuma-Ts and Clip Tiles!

Builds.  Two 2Rh/2Rd/2B Frames 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).  Only the price is holding this back from having an A+ rating.
