Amazon.co.jp has published pictures of the nine series 2 Mixels sets which it says will be available at the beginning of June.

They are blue, brown and orange. The tribes are named something like Frosticons, Fang Gang and Flexers respectively. Thanks to Dominick for the news and translation.

Update: This image provides more information about the tribes, and their names. The orange ones are Flexers, not Stretchers. (Thanks Allen)

I'm loving the use of helmets over this guy's eyes!

I actually think there are already images of series 1, 2, and 3 in the instruction booklets of the first series. They are fairly small though. :)

Oh yes, there are definitely images in there.

The Frosticons, though low in piece count, look great. More light blue please.

Yes there are minute ones in there but these are the first official ones, I believe, the first you can actually see :-)

if the LEGO Movie "Everything is Awesome" pack comes without young Vitruvius' staff, you could use the crystal on Slumbo's head for the staff, then attach the crystal to a brown staff piece.

Am I the only one who thinks that Chomly looks constipated?

I think Flurr looks pretty cool and Chomly looks hillarous :P.

These look wonderfully wacky again, maybe more so than the first series! I wasn't that impressed from the tiny pics on the instructions but seeing them properly I like them.
I really love the way Slumbo and Balk have minifig heads for eyes, and they've used hats and helmets to make the eyelids. Superb!
(@gingerlad - no, you're not! :P)

Slumbo is awesome, and I really don't get the Flexers, it looks sloppy. We had fire, rock, and electricity, so now it's ice, toothiness, and flexibility? Although it's cool (pun not intended) that the Frosticons seem to be products of the fire tribe. Those minifig head-eyes would make for some really interesting customs. I had the same thought about the blue crystal, but there would need to be a "hollow stud" piece in brown to make the staff complete, even though the piece only comes in white and will be in dark red for Angry Kitty.

I think that these are much more interesting than the first wave, almost certainly going to buy all the frosty ones, although I wish that Flurr's wings were blue, and I'll probably get a few of the others too. This is a nice unisex equivelant to the friends animal packs and definately a clever move by TLG, I wasn't sure about the mixels before but now I completely get it.

It comes in yellow too.

Interesting, but it looks to me like Balk has white minifig heads with eyes printed on them, and yellow baseball caps to be used as "eyelids." However, the eyes on Slumbo look like the same spherical eyes used on Mixels series 1, but with blue space helmets as eyelids. At first I thought Slumbo had the minifig head-eyes also, but they look more spherical inside the space helmet eyelids.

I can't say I was a fan of the Mixels sets until our recent stay at the Legoland Hotel in Windsor. We took part in an Easter egg hunt around the hotel and we were given some of the series one sets as prizes - most impressed with the few sets we have so will be collecting them all - good that each tribe are different colours and also feature lots of new colours too

Loving Mixels, great value too compared to CMFs. Definitely getting Series 2. Anyone know will series 1 continue to be sold when 2 comes out?

The helmets wouldn't stay on the spheres, though, so the minifig heads use a connection point that keeps it together. I've never seen LEGO use loose-fitting pieces as part of a model. The picture may make it seem like the spheres, but I'm betting it's heads. Where does the yellow open-stud appear?

By in Canada,

Superb! These are even better than the first wave!

So does this mean that we will get series 3 in the fall or 2015?

Gravatar
By in United States,

The third series, judging by the names features a toxic/sludge tribe (propably green), a bug tribe, and a magic tribe (probably purple). This series is great, but I can't wait to see Series 3 as well.

At first I only liked them for the new parts/colors, but now they're starting to grow on me and I may have to pick them up. I know there series 1,2,3 ect... but are they like regular sets and out for a year, or like CMF and only out for a month or two before they sell out?

Can't help but feel these sets are pretty good for creating small scaled creatures rather than the actual set. Also, the amount of rare pieces in these sets give it a high point for MOCers.

Love these guys! They have so much personality and are great as parts packs for creating your own colorful, expressive creations. It almost makes you wonder why the LEGO Group didn't come up with a theme like this (colorful, impulse-priced monsters with wacky personalities and elemental motifs) sooner! Closest was the Monster Pod, one of the old X-Pod sets.

I'm thrilled that AFOLs are embracing this theme for its creativity instead of rejecting it for being childish and cartoony. Not everybody's taken as kindly to the cartoon, but I enjoy it and the people who don't generally have good reasons not to (its brand of humor is certainly not for everyone).

@8BrickMario I interpreted the tan Spikels as having a sand/desert theme myself, given that Hoogi and Footi both seem designed for digging and Scorpi is a scorpion (a desert animal). Their tribe name and description given at Toy Fair weren't very helpful (they were just described as "a fun-loving tribe", which could probably describe most Mixels), but their designs are consistent enough to tie them together at any rate.

@MrMonsieurGreen At Toy Fair, Series 3 was announced for September, so it will probably start to show up in July or August before becoming more widely available.

@Aanchir: I hadn't head the tribe name or seen any details, so I was just guessing from the name.

I haven't seen the cartoon, but I love cartoony monsters, and rare and new pieces are put to brilliant use in the Mixels, so I like the theme, even more so with the new images.

@8BrickMario: Alrighty then. If you're interested, all the info we have on the Series 3 tribes is here: http://toyfair14.asmzine.com/gallery/lego/mixels/slides/DSC00787.html

The cartoon is OK if you don't have high storytellingexpectations going into it. Rather than a full, story-driven cartoon like Ninjago, Chima, or Hero Factory, the Mixels cartoons are simple slapstick shorts one to three minutes in length that air during certain commercial breaks on Cartoon Network. Some of them are funnier than others. My favorites were "Mailman" ( http://www.mixels.com/video/mailman-clip.html ) and "Cookironi" ( http://www.mixels.com/video/cookironi-clip.html ).

EDIT: Just watched "Another Nixel" (http://www.mixels.com/video/another-nixel-clip.html) for the first time and it's pretty good! Love that Nixel general!

Glorp Corp and Wiztastics look to be great from the two shown there. But I don't want to get ahead of things too much. Thanks for posting the clips! The cartoon was definitely perfect for LEGO.

I have seen the pictures for awhile, I figured since February toy fairs.

The first series is rather weak, but the other ones are kind of cool.

Gravatar
By in United States,

The Brown ones are a bit bland, but the Blue and Orange ones look interesting (looking at all of them close-up gives a better perception than just glancing at their pictures on the set list).

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

The more I look at these the more I'm considering getting for parts...i definitely want all the blues for parts (maybe even a couple of multiples and those purple ones will be a must for me when they come out, i love the purple lego bricks, it always seems an underused colour (although I understand why- the only sets i can think of that use a lot of them tend to have The Joker in) so I can see myself buying multiples of those too.

By in United States,

I love the use of hats in this theme for eyelids (Slumbo, Balk, Mesmo). This theme is so creative and colorful. I might start being a serious collector once Series 2 comes out, as Series 1 isn't bad, but isn't too interesting.

Out of all the Series 2 tribes, the Frosticons appeal most to me. Especially Slumbo!
