LEGO Ninjago Kai's Fire Mech Review for MF0

The Box
So I picked this up at Toys R Us but seems to come and go out of the stores so I am not sure if this is a discontinued yet or not.
Stickers
Can you build some sort of creation right away?

I build an interesting quad frame. +5 points 

The Frame
Is it below, at, or above the golden ratio? (10 pence none the richer, no wait. 10 cents per part!)

$9.99/102 = $0.10 per part due to rounding giving us zero points.

Parts 1 - I need swords, lots of swords...
If you can't build something right away, or choose not to, does it have parts you should be able to put into use right away? 

Yes indeed, +5 points.

Parts 2
Does it have more than a handful of immediately useful parts? 

I would say most certainly. +5
Parts 3
 Total: 15 points for an A set, not bad but there are some other options I like to talk about below.

Parts Focus
So recently I started talking about taking MF0:RA to another scale, that scale being minifigure scale. For that scale, this is a slam dunk frame in a box BUT is sort of short. We are speaking in scale. Looking at the adjustments a Chub at minifigure scale would be as tall as the swords sticking out the top of the Fire Mech.
The Set
Just because it short one doesn't mean it won't work, I think it takes up all the dimensions as needed and comes with a range and melee system! Also it could also be a good base to make your own minifigure scale Chub.

As you can see here, compared to a microfig, she is a bit higher up in height to the leg.
