FIRST IMPRESSION | Score: 10

Excellent collector's quality packaging.  Very smooth, matte-type finish on the box.  It has a protective sleeve (like DVD-box sets) which is a huge plus for me as a collecter.

UNIQUE PARTS | Score: 10

Love having the throw-back minifig

PLAYABILITY/BUILD EXPERIENCE | Score: 10

Just to be fair I have to give playability an average score.  I mean, that's probably being a little too nice now that I think about it.  Playability is OK, given that you could use the minifig to play with, the build experience is very low.  Its a minifig and small alien creature.  Of course there's no build experience.  There's less than 20 pieces!

 

...It's still a great set.

VALUE FOR MONEY | Score: 10

Free with my order over $99, must be VIP member and as soon as I logged in as VIP and went to check out it was in my cart!

THEME POPULARITY | Score: 10

I'd rank this as super-exclusive and it's of collector's quality.  Right now it's available as a promotional item for 1 month.  ONE MONTH!

EXCLUSIVITY | Score: 10

Extremely exclusive.  Not available for purchase.  Only available Sept. 1 - 30, 2014 as a promotion item.  I believe it is VIP member only and orders over $99.

PACKAGING | Score: 10

Excellent.  Described in detail above.  Best LEGO box I've seen.  (I used to work LEGO retail)

GROWTH POTENTIAL | Score: 10

I already see appreciating value in this set.  Listed as $4.99 on LEGO.com (although you can't even buy it), and then listed on eBay for $19.99. Its the middle of the promo period right now.

DISPLAY QUALITY | Score: 10

As for the box, excellent display.  I have not opened this item yet.

CONCLUSION & FINAL ANALYSIS | Score: 10

I absolutely love this set.  Only going to appreciate in value.  The only problem I have is

 

To open or not to open?

 

THAT is the question.
