LEGO Mixels Series 5 & Series 6 coming!

LEGO Mixels – the cute little buildable monsters that LEGO introduced last year – continue to be popular with LEGO fans as fun and playable collectibles. They are also great sources for unique LEGO elements and for learning interesting building techniques. LEGO Mixels come in series, with each series including 3 tribes and each tribe including 3 characters per series (some of the tribes appear in more than one series). There is also a TV show related to LEGO Mixels aimed at young children. This year we will get Series 5 and Series 6 of LEGO Mixels, which were first revealed at the toy fairs earlier this year, and are now added to the Brickset database (see here: Series 5 & Series 6). While some of them start to look a little repetitive, others are quite brilliant new designs. 🙂

LEGO Mixels Lixers Max

LEGO MIXELS SERIES 5: The two new tribes of this series are called the Klinkers and the Lixers, along with three new Frosticons. The three brown/gray/gold Klinkers are steampunk-ish looking little guys, and their names are Gox, Jinky and Kamzo. The new members of the blue Frosticons are Krug, Chilbo and Snoof. And the yellow/orange Lixers are Spugg, Turg and Tungster. They are scheduled to be released in June of this year.

LEGO MIXELS SERIES 6: The two new tribes of this series are the Weldos and Munchos, along with three new Glorp Corp members. The three yellow and black characters that look like construction-vehicles are the Weldos, and their names are Kramm, Forx and Wuzzo. The three green Glorp Corp members are Dribbal, Gurggle and Slusho. And the three absolutely wacky purple Munchos are Snax, Berp and Vaka-Waka. They are scheduled to be released in October of this year.

LEGO Mixels Series 6

Just like in the previous series, here you can also build LEGO Mixels MAX models, by combining the three characters from each tribe into a larger monster. Building instructions for these combined models are available at the official LEGO Mixels website.

LEGO Mixels Frosticon Max

So far I have collected all the LEGO Mixels and I find them to be very fun. Originally I bought them only for the interesting parts (including the new small ball-joints and printed eyes), but once I built the characters I actually really liked some of them, and I kept them assembled and displayed on my desk. They do have quite a bit of personality and lots of big teeth! And the parts selection in these small sets are definitely very interesting; you get a lot of unique parts and colors that would otherwise be hard to find. They are also good for doodling and experimenting with new building techniques.

LEGO Mixels Klinkers Max

If you have never bought any LEGO Mixels sets, I recommend you check them out. You don’t have to collect the whole collection, just get the character that most appeals to you or have the most interesting parts that you would like to get. I’m pretty sure that you will have fun with whichever you choose. LEGO Mixels is available at most LEGO retailers and you can also find them both individually and as a full collection of tribes or even full collection series at the Online LEGO Shop.

So what do you think? How do you like the upcoming LEGO Mixels? Which one of the tribes and characters do you like bets? And which one do you think have the best parts-selection? Are you planning to get them when they become available? Feel free to share your thoughts and discuss in the comment section below. 😉

    First, looks like the trans piece behind Krog’s eye is the dimensions piece.

      Interesting! 😀

      Are you sure? I think it looks more like a 3×3 parabola. This piece: http://brickset.com/parts/design-43898

      It is not that piece (dang it) it was just the way the 4×4 dish was placed.

        It makes sense thought. The one in LEGO Dimensions is a special piece that allows the minifigs to interact with the game and most likely more expensive to produce.

    these look great. I skipped the outer space looking ones from that last series because I didn’t care for how they looked

    • admin April 28, 2015, 11:02 AM

      Yeah, it is perfectly fine to just get the ones you really like. 🙂

        The only series I bought… To each his own…

        • admin April 28, 2015, 4:54 PM

          Yes, of course! Different ones will appeal to different people. That’s what’s fun about them! 😛

    I really like the steampunkish ones and the construction guys are pretty cute as well! Some of the others have lots of neat pieces. I skipped the fourth series, they were a little weird for my taste, but I think I’m going to have to get some of these!

    • admin April 28, 2015, 1:06 PM

      Yeah, the steampunk guys are my favorites too, and the construction ones are very cute! 😛

    For some reason, I find these not as exciting as Series 2 & 3. They are definitely cool, lots of nice parts (including silver bananas on Forx!), but maybe not as good as their predecessors. I feel the same about the current Series 4. Anyways, what I do like: more Frosticons! the Klinkers are interesting, the gears are nice; the construction ones look really cool, I might get one of them; and the Glorp Corp look okay. The Lixers are an intriguing idea… but Tungster just looks ridiculous. 😕
    Also, I’ve built Kramm and Dribbal on LDD, I see that LEGO is stepping up their builds… Dribbal’s head is over 5 studs long! I like his glasses though. 😐

      where did you find instructions?

    So there is a tongue tribe….
