Mixels is a theme introduced in March 2014. It is part of a collaborative effort between LEGO and Cartoon Network to create a unique multi-platform franchise.[1] The Mixels IP includes a TV series that started airing in early 2014 on Cartoon Network, games, and the LEGO theme. After three years and nine waves, the theme was discontinued after the third 2016 wave.[2]

Description[edit]

Mixels are small creatures that can mix and combine with one another. These creatures are often made to represent real world or existing fictional creatures, such as dragons or bugs, though others are more humanoid, and others still use totally unique designs. They are sold in several waves of small, bagged sets.

Mixels are split into tribes. Each tribe started out with three tribe members (and, thus, three sets), though the Infernites, Frosticons, and Glorp Corp tribes received three additional members in future waves, bringing their member and set count to six each. Each tribe and its members is designed around a particular motif. In earlier waves, this motif was often elemental (the Infernites, for example, use red and transparent red elements to evoke the appearance of fire), though in later waves, the motifs could be any characteristic (for example, the MCPD tribe's police theme).

Apart from traits shared within a tribe, several traits are common among the Mixels in general, as a result of their cartoonish design. One such trait, for example, is a large, opening and closing mouth; in fact, it is common for a majority of a Mixel's body to consist of its head. One trademark of the theme are the Mixels' mini grey ball joints, frequently used to give their limbs extensive mobility. With these, it is often that the mini ball joints will appear in just the legs or just the arms, with the rest of the Mixel's limbs gaining their mobility from hinged elements or turn tables. All Mixels also have either one or two eyes (excepting 41553 Vaka-Waka, who has three). Mixels' eyes can take the form of white round 2x2 or 1x1 tiles, white ball elements, or white minifigure heads, all of which are printed to have black irises and white pupils (and, in the case of round tiles, the occasional grey eyelid). Other lego bricks can also act as eyelids when attached to the white-minifigure-head eyes. One interesting exception to the patterns above is 41533 Globert, who still features the white eye, black iris, and white pupil combination, but made out of two pieces: a printed black 2x2 round tile placed upon a white glow-in-the-dark disc.

Other common Mixel attributes are claws, teeth, and spikes, some made with existing tooth elements, and others made using new bricks, which take the structure of 1x2 white plates with two white teeth sticking up from the top or bottom or three white teeth sticking out from one 2-studs-long side.

One set from each tribe's waves also includes a black and white Nixel. The Nixels have small, black bodies, with legs made from black slope elements and arms made from clips, claws, or other pieces. They also have black ears and a large, angry or evil-looking face, using white 2x2 round tiles printed with the Nixel's facial features in black. While the Mixels all have unique personalities and names, the Nixels (excepting the leading King Nixel) that appear in sets are unnamed and, for the most part, interchangeable. Most early Nixels, in addition to being unnamed, have little defining characteristics, though Mixels included in later waves have greater physical distinction. For example, the Nixel included in 41570 Skrubz has a broken leg and sad face, and the Nixel in 41575 Cobrax has a ninja mask.

Background[edit]

The Mixels live in a fantastical, diverse world, split up into different tribes living in different locations suited to their needs. The Mixels like to combine, or "mix", with one another to create new characters, using special cubits in the process. A mix between three different members of the same tribe is called "maxing", and failed mixes are called "murps". The Nixels, which tear apart all they encounter, will also frequently tear apart the combinations the Mixels come up with. Hating the Mixels' combinations, the Nixels aim to hide and destroy all the cubits, the objects that allow the Mixels to mix in the first place.

Tribes[edit]

The Mixels are split up into a variety of tribes. All tribes have three members, excepting the Infernites, Frosticons, and Glorp Corp, which have six members each.

Press Release[edit]


Red2x2.png This is a description taken from PR Newswire. Do not modify it. Cartoon Network and The LEGO Group Reveal Groundbreaking IP Development with New Mixels Franchise

Multiple Mixels Elements Set to Launch in 2014

Cartoon Network and The LEGO Group announced today that they will jointly produce an unprecedented new global entertainment franchise. Launching in 2014, Mixels is the next franchise in integrated family entertainment from two of the world’s leading experts in youth engagement. The new venture will feature animated content (primarily shorts), a rich digital gaming experience, a collectible building toy concept and more.

Animated content will air on Cartoon Network and on www.cartoonnetwork.com, featuring the colorful Mixels creatures that can mix and combine with one another in creative and unpredictable storylines. A collectible portfolio of low-priced mini building sets will launch in three waves in 2014 and an app-powered gaming experience will engage fans in a deep mobile game that will cover the sprawling world of Mixels.

Mixels was developed through a true collaboration between Cartoon Network, a leading global kids entertainment company, and The LEGO Group, globally renowned for its heritage of quality, creative play experiences. The two companies joined forces when Cartoon Network Studios had an interest in creating original content based on the inherent open-ended values of LEGO® play, at the same time that The LEGO Group was exploring a new concept involving small creatures – and Mixels was born. The property was developed by a multinational team of content innovators, designers and animators – from Los Angeles to Atlanta to San Diego to Connecticut to Denmark.

“This is the next step in the evolution of Cartoon Network Studios and the way we develop original IP,” said Rob Sorcher, chief content officer, Cartoon Network. “Bringing together world-class animators and game developers with LEGO content and product design teams at the earliest stages of creation proved to be an energizing collaboration, showcasing the creative strengths of both brands.”

“Our relationship with Cartoon Network has really evolved and they have been really great, supportive partners who share our passion for children,” said Jill Wilfert, vice president licensing and entertainment for The LEGO Group. “After working closely with them for the last few years, it is obvious that they truly understand and fully embrace our brand and our core values, so we are thrilled to embark on this new journey to develop and deliver a highly creative and fully integrated new experience with them.”

“Families today are engaged in many ways and want a seamless entertainment experience,” said Stuart Snyder, president and chief operating officer for Turner’s Animation, Young Adults & Kids Media Division. “The reach of all the Cartoon Network platforms combined with the different touch points of the beloved LEGO brand will enable us to create a fully integrated and rich experience from the very beginning.”

Mixels will inspire new ways for young people to engage in immersive entertainment content that fuels sustainable, creative physical and virtual play. Fans and the audience will become creators and active participants in the process, creating new characters and content. This is a multi-format, multi-platform experience where a kid can join in anytime, anywhere.

With this exciting new franchise, Cartoon Network Studios will drive all narrative, animation and digital content and Cartoon Network Enterprises will handle Mixels non-toy licensed merchandise. The LEGO Group will focus on Mixels toy design, manufacture and distribution as well as licensed LEGO Mixels publishing to support the property.

Notes[edit]

  • The working title for LEGO Mixels theme was "LEGO Monsters" during prototype development.[3]
  • At the 2014 London Toy Fair, Mixels Series 1 was granted the Sixth Annual Best New Toys Award in the pocket money category.[4]
  • The Mixels fight opponents called Nixels,[5] which appear in the first wave sets 41503 Krader, 41506 Teslo, and 41501 Vulk, as well as various sets in future waves. One Mixel per tribe comes with a Nixel.
  • One of the main selling points for the theme is to collect three of a tribe to make Max Mixels out of LEGO, and also to make your own mixes.
