I’m going to start doing reviews for Lego (and the rest) sets based on Mantisking’s system. I’ll try to do at least one review a month, but we’ll see how it goes.
So I picked the Lego Creator Highway Cruiser to start.
Can you build a frame, or frames, right away? (Yes = +5 / No = -5)
Is it below, at, or above the golden ratio? (Below = +5 / At = 0 / Above = -10)
I paid $9.97, divided by 129 pieces that comes to 7.72 cents per piece. +5
If you can’t build a frame right away, does it have parts you should be able to put into use right away? (Yes = +5 / No = -5)
Yes, it has 2 x 2 Dishes, Technic Bushes, 1 x 4 Antennae, 1 x 2 and 2 x 2 plates, and brackets to name just a few of the useful parts. +5
Does it have more than a handful of immediately useful parts? (Yes = +5 / No = -5)
Yes. As a low estimate I’d say 70% of the part are immediately useful. The only parts in the set that might not be good for MFZ builds are the mudguards, and I’m sure someone will figure out a use for that part eventually. Everything else is good for mobile frames or stations/terrain. +5
Score: A+ I can definitely recommend picking up this set.
