Instagram user leanalynn has posted a photograph of new LEGO Mixels, which are to be released in March 2014. They appear to consist of named cartoon figures, with each set including a particular character.
The whole theme seems to be based on a Cartoon Network license, however a quick search for 'Mixels Cartoon Network' hasn't thrown much up... I'm sure we'll hear more nearer the time of their release.
What do you think of them? Can anyone shed any light on what they actually are?
Thanks to Shadowedge in the forum for the tip!
UPDATE: An official page is live on the LEGO website: http://www.lego.com/mixels
There is no new information other than an official image (below) and the following legal statement:
LEGO, the LEGO logo, and MIXELS are trademarks of the LEGO Group. 2013 The LEGO Group. All rights reserved. TM & 2013 Cartoon Network.
This is interesting due to the fact that it suggests that 'Mixels' may in fact be IP owned by LEGO but developed in partnership with Cartoon Network, rather than simply a new TV series as was originally thought.
