Review: 41549 Mixels Gurggle

The last of the Glorp Corp. Mixels reviews.

Bag.  MSRP is $4.99 which is a Price per Piece of $0.08.


Parts.  A lot of plates to start with, a fair amount of Mixel Joints, a couple of 1x2 Bricks, some Brackets, three different types of Clip Plates, a few 1x2 Bar Plates (closed ends), an interesting prismatic 2x2 Tile, a couple of Tooth Plates, several types of Slopes, and a couple of Lampholders.

Build.  Another T.U.R.D. Bot variation.

The Questions:
Can you build something -- a frame, station, or starship -- right away?  Yes.  (+5)
Is it below, at, or above the golden ratio?  Below.  (+5)  
(The Golden Ratio is $0.10 per part.)
If you can't build a frame right away, or choose not to, does it have parts you should be able to put into use right away?  Yes.  (+5)
Does it have more than a handful of immediately useful parts?  Yes.  (+5)
Score: +20 (A+).  Another max score for the Glorp Corps.


  1. I just picked up this one, and 41548 DRIBBAL. I plan on creating at least two Frames and a Station from them tonight, along with rebuilds of all three of LEGO Mixels Series 7 The Mixies Jamzy Tapsy & Trumpsy.

    If I can figure out a way to post pictures, I will.

    BTW - Awesome blog. Keep up the good work.


    1. Looking forward to seeing what you build. The easiest way to post pictures is to get a Flickr account and join the MFZ Flickr group. You'll get good feedback that way.

      Thank you.

  2. Here's the Frames I build from Tapsy, Gurggle, and Dribbal, respectively.

    My players really like the game, and are impressed by ease at which it can be learned, and yet the depths to which the strategies can plunge.

    To watch them staring at their dice rolls, you can see the agonizing over .... "High Defense, Low Spot? Spot is KING ... Will I last? OMG ... I need to MOVE! Arhgghgg!"
