You can also stand a chance to win a full set of these new toys.
Once upon a time in Mixel land, three tribes – the Infernites, Cragsters and Electroids – lived in harmony. Each with their own strengths and abilities – the Infernites breathe fire, and the Cragsters (made of stone) can crush their enemy, while the Electroids emit electricity – the Mixels must fight off the baddies called (ahem) the Nixels, who threaten to invade their land and break the tribes apart.
Also, the Mixels can – literally – join forces to defeat the Nixels. They can mix (when two Mixels combine) and max (when three Mixels combine) to become bigger and more effective in unleashing their powers.
Unfortunately, a “murp” can also happen ... that’s when a wrong combination is formed and their powers go out of control.
Sounds like fun? Join the Mixels on their adventure to outwit the evil Nixels and defend their land in the short form animated series, Mixels. Created by John Fang (Generator Rex and Ben 10) and Dave Smith (The Powerpuff Girls), the one to two-minute segment is a partnership between construction toy maker Lego and children entertainment channel Cartoon Network.
If Mixels is up your alley, then you will be happy to know that the merchandise is already on sale. However, before you head out to the stores to get them, you may want to check out this contest.
