Mega Bloks Halo Micro-Fleet Warthog Review for MF0

The Box
At the time of this post stores have been putting these on clearance or in sales. Looks like a good size for 7p so let's check it out. Though, why do they call it Warthog?

The Head - Also a container

The Base is the Back of the Head

Can you build some sort of creation right away?

So I couldn't get a frame or a spaceship out of this but the Warthog itself is nice. It pretty much fits the scale but I am not sure it it is tall enough for cover but if one wanted it could be fielded as is (1G, 2Ra+R8a). Also the extra bit using the orange piece could be put on a 4x4 plate and become a neat station. I am going to go with 5 because we have a station and something that could be fielded in the game using the frame rules.

Parts 1
Is it below, at, or above the golden ratio? (10 cents per part)

$14.99 / 93 = 16 cents per part. Ouch -10

Parts 2 - Two of the Cheese Slopes are Taller with Sharper Angels
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?

Many useful and interesting parts that you don't find in LEGO sets. +5

Parts 3
Does it have more than a handful of immediately useful parts? 

So this is a hard one, we have a lot of plates but then again we have a lot of other parts I can see in a build but not enough or the right kinds to inspire some kind of frame or a spaceship (out of me at least). I am going with 'handful' and giving a plus 5.

The Set, Blue isn't attached.
Total: We have a B+, mind you almost a B set but it very neat.
