Packaging

Mixels packaging has a small transparent window in the shape of a Cubit to let the buyer take a sneak peek at the pieces included in the set. Their packaging is similar to the bags of some of the much smaller Friends sets (collectible animal packs).

The packaging also shows what the Mixels look like in their cartoon form in the top right corner. As the packaging shows the cartoon version, behind them is a burst of what element they are. (ex. a Glorp Corp member would have gooey stuff behind it).

Finally, the packaging also shows the Mixel doing some pose in front of a background of Mixel Land. The first three waves had bags with rings around the Mixel's image.

The design changed with the fourth wave, with new-style artwork showing the respective tribe region behind them, and with striped light-style patterns. Also, starting with the fourth wave, the bags were made with small slits at the top, letting them be easily opened by hand instead of having to be cut open.

Stopmotions

With each wave, LEGO released stopmotions to promote each new series. Each stopmotion (excluding Series 7-9 stopmotions) is focused around a Mix, Max or Murp that has instructions available online.

Trivia

  • The Mixels have micro-sized ball-joints that are compatible with the old Technic towball piece. These were also seen on the Legends of Chima Legend Beasts.
  • Sets in each series include a Nixel (one from each tribe), and later, Cubits and Cookironis.
  • 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 and Murps.
  • Each set sells for $4.99 in the USA, making the Mixels theme one of the cheapest on sale in LEGO's portfolio of lines, and one of the best in terms of price-per-piece ratios. However, in some stores, the prices vary.
  • This is one of the only LEGO themes to have sets without minifigures. However, the theme still uses elements from the minifigures, as some Mixels have eyes that are made with specially painted minifigure heads and use headgear as eyelids.
  • Many of the sets include rare pieces in rare colors. A couple even have pieces exclusive to them. For example, Volectro's hair is a yellow bush that is exclusive to him and Sweepz' brushes are exclusive to his set.
  • The first time Mixels was advertised on a different website was on a popular kids game called Poptropica. They included three types of costumes based on Flain, Krader, and Volectro. There was also an item known as "Flamzer Scuttle", where Flamzer would run on the screen placing LEGO fire pieces on the screen once triggered. There was also an item known as "Boogly Dash".  A Series 6 promo gave a special Dribbal follower and the ability "Snax Toss Power".
  • Each set up to Series 3 included an in-booklet code to unlock a new power for the set's respective character and gain a small amount of Cubits in the Calling All Mixels app game. This returned in Series 5 and Series 6 for Mixels Rush.
  • The original, working title for Mixels was Hungry Monsters, or just Monsters.[1]
    • Its tagline was originally set to be "The more you collect, the wackier it gets!".
  • The Technic ball eye is one of the most common eye-pieces for the Mixels sets.
  • The minifigure head eye was not introduced in the theme until Series 2.
  • The half-closed large eye was not introduced until 2015, in Series 4.
  • A new tooth piece was introduced in 2016; unlike most other tooth pieces, this one is not sharp, and is a molar.
    • It is also used as a toe piece, as Trumpsy uses it as his toes.
  • Each box of bags contains 30 sets, with the primary tribe of the series having four complete sets and the remaining two tribes having three complete sets.[2]
  • The Series 1 preview seen at San Diego Comic-Con International used boxes over the polybags that the series eventually used.

Awards and Nominations

The theme was a 2014 Toy of the Year finalist.[3] It was also a finalist for the 2015 Toy of the Year.[4]
