We have talked about the recently released LEGO Mixels several times (see links at the end of this post). They are those cute little monsters you can build and mix-and-match in pretty much unlimited ways. Each of the LEGO Mixels packets include one LEGO Mixel character, and if you get all three Mixels within a tribe, you can also build a combined Max character using the downloadable instructions at the LEGO Mixels website. 🙂
Recently LEGO added more downloadable instructions for other fun mix-and-match combinations – this time between characters from different tribes, and they are referred to as Murps. The official description for these combined models is as follows: “Combine two Mixels and get twice the power. The one Mixel will be the dominant character, while the other Mixel will give it extra powers to solve a particular problem.”
For example you can mix Zorch from the fiery Infernites tribe with Volectro from the Electroids tribe, to come up with the following funny little character with both fire and zapping powers! 😈
There are many more combinations that you can download the instructions for in a PDF format and save them on your computer or even print them out to follow along. Other combinations only have pictures, so you can take up the challenge of figuring out how they are built. You can find all of the combined models here: LEGO Mixels Combined Models
These alternate models should give you hours of fun creating your own LEGO Mixels characters, and also teach you valuable lessons on interesting building techniques. And if you don’t have any LEGO Mixels yet, you can get them at LEGO retailers or at the Online LEGO Shop.
