Review: 41524 Mixels Mesmo

We're heading into the home stretch for the Series 3 Mixel reviews.

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


Parts.  Plenty of Plates, Three Clip Plates, two Bar Plates, Mixel Joints, a Clip Tile, Cheese Slopes, some Studless Slopes, Tooth Tiles, a Jumper, 1x1 Round Tiles, a Bracket, giant eyeball Minifig Heads, and large Wings all stick out to me.

Build.  A couple of co-workers called this the
"Gargoyle".  Stats: 2Rh+d8/2Ra+d8/2W.

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 maxed out Mixel.


  1. Oooh, this is one of my favorites yet. Love the legs!

    1. I'd actually change them a tiny bit if I was keeping this build. If you alter the direction of the Tooth Plate and the short Studless Slope to vertical, it will increase the surface area of the foot and make it more stable. It will also increase the structural integrity of the foot as you will then have three crosswise layers instead of just two.
