These sets are obviously all about green. Lime green, dark green and transparent-neon green are all big factors in these sets, with newly coloured items like Torts’ hands (starfish) appearing in these sets exclusively. There are plenty of other useful bits and pieces like mini-ball joints, eyes and teeth playing a big part. You get 4 snakeblades if you buy Glomp and Glurt, which look kind of like mucus, and Glurt also comes with a nice looking spiky tail that’s seen a bit in Chima, Bionicle and Ninjago sets.
These builds come together pretty quickly, as there isn’t much to them.

The biggest drawcard for these sets is the re-creation of new Mixels. Kids love creating new ones, and that was the biggest hope for LEGO as well. Being able to mix and match and encourage new ideas is what LEGO is all about of course! Being my first Mixels set, I’m impressed with the parts, but they won’t be displayed with my other sets for very long. The Glorp Corp gets 6 out of 10 googly eyes.
