Glomp:

The Glorp Corp - review

From LEGO.com:

“The crazier the better for one-eyed GLOMP who is always hatching hair-brained schemes and playing goofy games. And don’t get too close – the tallest of this swamp-dwelling tribe always has slimy hands and a runny nose!”

The Glorp Corp - review

Is that… boogers…? Really? Kinda gross, but I am sure all the kiddies out there will love it.

There are some cool cool colours in this set, in particular that glowing transparent green. The legs are made with ball joints, meaning Glomp is particularly flexible. At least, his legs are. The rest of him is pretty inflexible and his snot has a nasty habit of falling off.

This model doesn’t particularly appeal to me – he’s pretty dull and not as cute as some of the other Mixels.

Glurt:

Glurt

From LEGO.com

“GLURT has a pointy tail, yapping mouth, and slobbers with delight when he sees anyone. An avid garbage collector, GLURT gobbles up all the trash and cleans up after the rest of the Glorp Corp.”

Glurt

Glurt is like the little slobbery puppy that could. His head is larger than his body, and he’s just pretty cute! He’s built pretty similarly to Jawg from series 2, but that’s okay as who doesn’t want more weird pets. He doesn’t have much in the way of movability, but his mouth opens wide enough to gobble up all the rubbish.

Torts:

The Glorp Corp - review
From LEGO.com

“A slob who enjoys playing for thrills, TORTS shoots gloopy, green slime from its hands. Everything sticks to this turtle-like creature – which is great fun when goofing around and perfect for catching a Nixel or two!”

Torts

Snot, slobber, slime – this gang of Mixels really is rather gross. This guy kind of reminds me of a weird frog bird thing. I like the re-use of the starfish from the mermaid minifigure, and it’s pretty cool in the transparent green. Again, this model is not overly fleixible in range of motion, and he doesn’t look very cute, but he does have a certain odd appeal.

Max:

Found the Max’s in a different place than before! This one can be found online at LEGO.COM. I’ll get this built and reviewed shortly!

Nixel:

This set’s Nixel comes with Glurt, and is the same as from Series one and two.

Om nom nom!

Nothing beats a little mud bath in the swamp lands right!

The Glorp Corp - review

Overall:

As the first set of Mixels, I’ve seen of series 3, I’m pretty disappointed. I like the cute, personality field Mixels and these just don’t have that for me. Glurt is my favourite from this set though, and he’s pretty fun!

Rating: 6/10
