My Blox Military

Where is the credit to Mantis King? It is now a permanent link above. I hope this is cool, let me know if it is not.

The Box
So I picked this up at 5 Below figuring that this would be another set to warn others away from much like this one. I was sort of surprised but I will break that all down through out the review.

Can you build some sort of creation right away?

Well, no this set pretty much can only build it self. -5 points

Parts 1

Is it below, at, or above the golden ratio? (10 cents per part)

I got this for only a $1 with 31 pieces giving us a part per price of 3 cents. That is certainly below the ration for +5 points.

The Bot and the Cart
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, there are several pieces that get used in builds and with that I will say I was rather surprised at the quality of the product. It near LEGO in both plastic and molding. The 'hand clip' of the 1x1  modified bricks are slightly loser but not much. At a glance you would easily mistake this for LEGOs. +5 points

Does it have more than a handful of immediately useful parts?

This is a negative though, some useful parts but not a lot over all but at the price does it matter? -5 points

Total: So our point total gives us a B so not that bad, maybe a + given how low the ratio is. So the question is am I going to go out and get more? Most likely not unless I like that green on the 'hood' piece suddenly but I might go out and give the other sets a shot.

Split System
Focused Ray
Four Wheels
Targeting Sensors

Above is a suggested possible build (I apologize for the crazy spots for the 'dice', limits of blogger) if you wanted the field the 'cart' as it. I have to say it reminds me of some of the stuff that used to attack classic Godzillia.
