We love them, I have become addicted to Mixels. The instructions are such that even I, a Lego making failure, can do them.
I am more than happy to put them together for children under 5, so that they can go off and play with them. Everyone seems to love them and following the instructions gives you a fairly robust toy that once broken, can be remade quite easily.
I confess to not being a master builder, I cannot build anything without the instructions and I find these very therapeutic to do.
Tune in to Cartoon network to see the Mixels in action.
We are hoping to get a look at series 1 mixels which we missed.
Collect, build, mix and match the new batch of LEGO® constructible collectibles!
Build even weirder and stranger LEGO® Mixels™ combinations with these new additions from series two! Discover the nine unique characters in the three tribes: Frosticons, Fang Gang and Flexers – each with their own unique ways of getting rid of the Nixels!
Hailing from the frozen crystalline shells of dead volcanoes, the Frosticons are the totally chillaxed blue tribe. But don’t let their frosty exterior fool you – when they need to move, watch out! There are three ice cold Mixels in LEGO ® Mixels ™ Series 2 to collect.
Move massive objects with the mighty (and sleepy) LEGO® Mixels™ 41509 SLUMBO (RRP: £3.00)! SLUMBO is the sleepiest and dreamiest of the Frosticons, as it takes an earthquake to wake this guy up. SLUMBO is awake, this lazy Frosticon has the muscle to move giant objects and create obstacles for Nixels. But beware; SLUMBIO can get brain freeze from making ice tunnels!
Compared to other members of the Frosticon tribe, the unbelievably slow LEGO® Mixels™ 41510 LUNK (RRP: £3.00) makes everyone else seem positively energetic. LUNK might not be the brainiest, or the most graceful when waddling across ice balancing on his stubby hands, but that thick ice exoskeleton makes this Mixel™ incredibly durable. With one sneeze, LUNK can instantly freeze a Nixel in an ice cube!
Leading the way of this new tribe is tribe leader LEGO® Mixels™ FLURR 41511 (RRP: £3.00)! FLURR is the only tribe member who never seems sleepy and likes to fly around to explore distant Frosticon lands. FLURR is great at spotting invading Nixels far away but sometimes misses the most obvious things!
With the Fang Gang tribe, anything goes, especially when it comes to eating! The Fang Gang are notorious for their large appetites and bad breath. There are three hungry Mixels in LEGO® Mixels™ Series 2 to collect.
Repel the Nixels with the bad breath of LEGO® Mixels™ CHOMLY 41512 (RRP: £3.00)! CHOMLY is a lazy, trash-compacting Mixel who will try and crunch and munch just about anything. This serious eating habit cost CHOMLY a tooth once and now its smile has a golden gleam. This close-talking Mixels has very bad breath though, perfect for repelling those pesky Nixels!
Compared to other members of the Fang Gang tribe, LEGO® Mixels™ GOBBA 41513 (RRP: £3.00) talents lie in his amazingly sensitive tongue, used to seek out the best food on their homeland. Considering they live on a weird farm where they try and plant anything and everything to see if it grows into food, one could say that GOBBA has a unique gift – being able to avoid less tasty foods! Some say that GOBBA can taste feelings – sadness is very salty!
The fiercely loyal and energetic leader of the Fang Gang, LEGO® Mixels™ JAWG 41514 (RRP: £3.00) will stop at nothing to protect and help this quirky Mixel tribe. JAWG is a bit of an animal and won’t hesitate to bite intruders with those incredibly huge, fang-like teeth. Beware of JAWG!
Completing the new range of Mixels are the Flexers tribe; three flexible and fun LEGO® Mixels™ that can bounce, stretch and crush those naughty Nixels!
The Flexers tribe live in the remote Rubberlands and is proudly represented by confident but short LEGO® Mixels™ KRAW 41515 (RRP: £3.00)! Claiming to be the smartest Mixels in the world, KRAW loves to challenge anyone to a quiz, but this round-bodied Flexer’s main strength is to make like a bouncy, rubber super ball to evade or smash Nixels.
As one of the most powerful within the LEGO® Mixels™ Flexers tribe, TENTRO 41516 (RRP: £3.00), is incredibly elasticated and orange! Despite being strong and super-intelligent, TENTRO lacks confidence. No one knows why though, because this flexible Mixels has tentacles that pack a huge punch and the ability to climb any surface and capture any Nixel that attacks.
This last member of the LEGO® Mixels™ Flexers tribe might be the slowest but has the greatest strength! BALK 41517 (RRP: £3.00) has a mallet-like head that can hit, pummel and crush whatever gets in the way. All that head-butting has bashed BALK’s brain cells, so this hammer-header Mixel can be a bit forgetful and find it hard to spit out the right words. But there’s no one better to defend the Rubberlands from Nixel invasions.
