From LEGO.COM:… FOOTI just loves to skip, jump and dance. But give this Mohawk-haired character plenty of room when he starts stomping around – those huge spiky claw feet are dangerous so watch out!
My my, what big feet you have! Check out this guys claws and his little popping out eyes! His legs and feet are sooo bendy! Just keep a check on his claws!
This guys is kinda similar in build and shape to Seismo – only slightly more slimline. And way cuter!
From LEGO.COM:The leader of the playful Spikels tribe, SCORPI loves pillow fights, sleepovers and chatting all night. … The cutest-looking of the Spikels loves to hug and snuggle, but beware of that dangerous pointy tail!
A little alien? A little fishy? Scorpi is pretty damn cute with some huge expressive eyes, just watch out for those spikes and that pointy tail.
Build wise, he is fairly straightforward, although all those legs can get fiddly! Little ones may need some help here!
HOOGI is … super-affectionate, giving the biggest hugs with its lanky arms. Nixels creatures better watch out! While HOOGI walks as slowly as a zombie, getting grabbed by those spiky claw hands can be very painful. So you may want to avoid a HOOGI hug!
Oh Hoogi, what can I say. You are so adorable, I just want to pick you up and hug you. Only, you’re slightly dangerous with those claws! How about a nail trim?
Seriously, this guy is amazing. I’m tempted to combine this guy with Footi’s legs and get something even cuter!
The instructions can be found over at LEGO.COM.
This Max is pretty damn awesome. Flexible, cute, and simply adorable! Can’t say much more than that, except that this is the only Max I have made that I don’t want to re-build into it’s other parts! I strongly suggest that if you like displaying the individual models, you buy two lots of this set!
This was the set I was looking forward to the least from series 3, but actually, I think they are my favourites, despite the muted colour scheme. They have the posability and cute look that I like in my Mixels. The max is one of the best I have seen so far, and despite all the claws is pretty sweet.
I’m not sure what LEGO’s plans are for any more Mixels, as series 1-3 have been printed in the instruction manuals from the start. It will be interesting to see if they continue to make these characters. I look forward to seeing what happens if they do, as they have been great fun to build, and make the perfect small set to build and photograph.
