Can you build some sort of creation right away?
I gave it a shot and was close but couldn't get an actual build from it but I think there is some room for inspiration of a space ship in here. -5 points.
$2.99 / 33 = $0.09 for just under ratio for +5 points! Yes, that is $2.99!
Yes, look at all the mixel joints but be better if there was pieces of the 1x2 with the cup on the short end. +5 points.
Does it have more than a handful of immediately useful parts?
Given the parts are Mixel Joints and I almost got a frame with maybe some spaceship design potential I will give this +5 as well.
Total: We have an A- set and a cute little turtle!
