Recommendation distribution

Alright, so that's the rating. But are the sets generally recommended? The data we've collected shows that the majority of Friends sets are considered up to personal taste:

Total: 303 / 417

Not all sets in our database are marked as recommended or not. We currently have 114 sets in Friends that are considered unknown. They are excluded from these calculations.

A set is considered recommended when the majority of reviews recommend it. If you're interested in knowing when a review is considered a recommendation, I keep that reasoning updated in Brick Insights FAQ. I've also written an article detailing the recommendation distribution of all reviews.

Prices

Since part prices vary a lot depending on part types, Brick Insights attempts to group similar categories together. We call these meta-categories comparable categories. Friends is bundled into System along with these:

The average price per part (PPP) of all System sets is 0.18. The average PPP for Friends is 0.13. Meanwhile, the average price per minifig (PPM) in System is 17.13 and the average PPM for Friends is 15.94.
